The fridge is either a 62 or maybe a 63. I have a pink 62 that is identical. Lovely looking fridge, indeed!

It is the smaller box (smaller than the 18.8 cu. ft. Spacemaker) with the serpentine coil at the top of the refrigerator section and the smaller, single basket freezer. I don't think the freezer would be frost free in that model.

Look at that kitchen! I'd buy an orange dish drainer and sink mat and call it done. Those appliances are too nice to let go so just embrace the era, a set of mushroom canisters and the look would be perfect.

Tom, I thought the same thing when I saw the serpentine evaporator coil. 


Not a fun freezer to defrost, per testimonials posted in other threads about bottom freezer GE's that aren't frost free.

Thats about the extent of the average persons kitchen decor knowledge these days, either bronze something or other and stainless steel.

Ah, I didn't catch the coils the first time I saw the ad. I believe the 62 I have features the hot gas defrost system. Runs quite well and will be in full service again here soon. The double basket freezer is nice on these, but the single drawer units are a bear.

Aye, Here's the Rub!

Here's a repeat of a pic I posted showing the "fun" part of defrosting the single-basket bottom-freezer Combinations. As you can see, the job of clearing the ice cube tray compartment is better suited to trained pythons than human defrosters:

Nice GE REF and Stove

These are around 1961-2 and the freezer would be FF by this time, this is also about the first of the GE Hi-Low ranges.
