NORTH BERGEN, NEW JERSEY -- To any appliance purchasers out there, some friendly advice: avoid anything made by GE at all costs! They do not inspect their appliances before they leave the factory, so 40 percent of all appliances are faulty to begin with. What's more, their technicians are terrible: not knowlegeable and do not take their work seriously; one of them rescheduled on me last minute 4 times, no less. The company is the closest I have come to Kafka's "The Castle" in real life. Save yourself the headache.
