Worthless

Mjhunt 7/10/2022

I had the older model of opal ice maker it was a better machine. I gave it to my son because one of my grandchildren has health issues and needs the ice for hydration. I just want a refund and return this machine to be able to purchase the model I had before. This one never worked the way it should and has stopped working completely now. So disappointed with GE not receive information any resolution.

Started out good but 2 weeks in

JacqueWC 7/6/2022

The first two weeks were great but now it goes into defrost mode daily and has to be power cycled to get it out. I've tried the clean cycle and that is not fixing the issue. This may be going back to the retailer soon.

Excellent Ice Machine

sikoran 6/23/2022

This is an excellent ice machine. Perfect soft and crunchy ice nuggets. It will fill the bin in right around 2 hours and I have weighted it out at 1.6 to1.7 lbs for a full bin. Not too bad to clean and descale. It would be nice if it came with a funnel to make this job easier. Really like the app for controlling the unit and so far has worked great. Not too loud. It would be amazing if it could be hooked into a water line, but I am sure GE would have done this by now if it were feasible. Perfect addition to the summer!

Very little ice production

Ryan from Utah 6/14/2022

Major let down… doesn't produce much ice and is constantly defrosting. Sending it back and replacing it with an Opal 2.0. Don't waste your money on this unit.

Best ice dispenser/ maker

Mharris1984 6/7/2022

How to make this ice maker better? By 3D printing a custom lid on the side tank and installing a float on a RO water line. So now my opel has constant RO water ans didnt cut or void warranty by designing a lid to 3D print. Made with 100% infill, so it is solid.

Do not buy this ice maker

Naive ruffed 6/5/2022

I was so excited to for this ice maker but in the end it was a disappointment. I followed the directions for setup exactly as the manual stated and talked with a tech support person to ensure it was set up properly. It would make about half a glass of ice and then say defrosting for and hour before resuming making another half glass of ice.

Don't buy

Djfjf 6/4/2022

Makes great ice when you can get it, which is not very often! Got it for memorial day weekend. Had to got the store get ice after 1 day. You turn it on, starts making ice within 15 minutes as advertised but then goes into defrost mode within 45 minutes and no longer dispenses ice. Sometimes it gets out of the defrost mode and makes ice again but most of the time it stays stuck in it until you unplug and restart. In 3 weeks of use, I saw the sign indicating that the ice bin was full only once, not sure why one day it worked really well. The instructions provided are not very good at all. The website troubleshooting is a little better but not much. I did everything they recommended, clean cycle, move the machine, make sure there is plenty of room around it for air flow but I suspect this is a design flaw. I returned it, got a brand new one, same exact problem. Opal support takes 3 business day to respond each time they send you a response and if you call it does not speed things up at all. If you need a part it takes 2-3 wks if they have it stock. Forget it, sending second one back!

Great Ice, Too small!

Louismeister 5/29/2022

The ice is fantastic and what it claims to be. With a house 5 people big the 1.8 gallons seems small. Almost like it's 1.8 gallons of water used to make it but seems like it's definitely not that when it's full. Wish it was a bit bigger

Needs work

JScott888 5/29/2022

I was so excited to get this new ice maker so I wouldn't have to use the ice scooper. I had the opal 2.0 wifi. It worked ok for a few days and then it started freezing. It would go into defrost mode for 20 +hours. I would have to unplug and plug it back in to get it working again. I would get ice for about 3 hours and it would go back into defrost mode. Very disappointed.

Worked for less than 2 weeks!!!

Brandi74 5/26/2022

I've had the original model of the Opal for 2 years and loved it. It began to leak and it was out of the warranty period so I decided to upgrade to the newest opal model. Although it's a great looking machine, I'm not at all impressed by it. You can't see how much ice is in the bin because it dispenses with the push of a button. That part is great but it only dispenses about 6 oz of ice at a time. Very frustrating!!! Now it has started making a horrendous grinding noise a couple times a day and the only way to stop it is to unplug the machine. I called customer service and they asked me to send a video of the noise. I'm not sure why they think the amount of ice it dispenses is not a problem. I sent the video 2 days ago and have yet to hear anything.

Not happy

BDJP 5/21/2022

Brand new machine, using distilled water, plenty of air space all around it, but it goes into defrost mode within 30 minutes, and then stays in it (including overnight) until you unplug it to start the whole process over. Even when it works, you can barely get a single cupful of ice before it runs out. Really disappointing and will be sending it back unless there is something that can be done to fix the issue.

Already malfunction at less than a month old

KBMD9 5/12/2022

I love the nugget ice that is made by this machine and the new concept of ice delivery, however it already makes a screeching sound and is less than a month old. Periodically, this incredibly loud screeching sound occurs that requires the icemaker to be unplugged for several hours and then plugged back in, after which the Icemaker functions for a few more days until the situation recurs again. My second complaint is that this machine only makes very small batches of ice. There is usually only enough ice in the machine with the ice bin full, to fill up one glass of ice. Then the ice machine must make another batch of ice before filling up any more glasses of ice.

Don't think about it, BUY IT!!

iLikeIce 5/4/2022

Where to begin, I had the first version Opal ice maker and it was THE best nugget ice maker. When friends and family would come over, they would look in aww that I had a machine that made "the good ice" Naturally when I saw a newer version available, I had to check it out. First thing I noticed is the amazingly sleek design - its gorgeous! Another great feature is the wifi capabilities, which is convenient, but the ultimate feature that I love is actually 2, the quietness and the fact it makes Waaaay more ice than my original Opal. If you're on the fence about price, I was able to finance thru affirm and my payments were super low and trust me, this machine is worth every penny.

Good ice quality, but needs improvement

lightsalt 5/3/2022

I have used this machine for a month so far, so may be ready to write some reviews for others who are interested in this machine. Pros: 1. Ice quality: the quality of nugget ice is good. Feels great in mouth and easy to chew. 2. Appearance: looks good unless you see it in a close distance. (see the Cons below). Cons: 1. Appearance: if you look at this machine closely, you may feel it seems a bit flimsy. Front is made of plastic, which looks cheap. 2. Dispensing: it could be Pros, because it is more convenient than scoop. But the downside is, there is no way the user can find out the amount of available ice. Previous version has transparent window, but this new model doesn't. If GE wanted to make it with black plastic, they should make the SmartHQ app to provide an information of remaining ice. 3. Design Flaw of Side Tank: Idea of side tank is good, but the question is, is there any need to make the water cap at the bottom? In order to fill water in the side tank, users should take out entire side tank, turn upside down, open the cap, refill water, close the cap, and reinstall the side tank. Why? If the cap is located at the top, users can fill water simply from the top (like GE Espresso Machine). 4. Cleaning/Descaling: SmartHQ app started to show a warning sign, "Needs Cleaning", after 2 weeks of use. I tried to clean the machine following the manual. FYI, cleaning is another design flaw, I think. Is there any other way to make the cleaning/descaling process more convenient? Manuals says cleaning every once a week or two, but the cleaning process is really tedious and takes long (at least one hour or more). If GE recommend cleaning every once a week or two, they should consider a more convenient way of cleaning/descaling process. 5. SmartHQ app: This app is needed to install the machine, but after that, this app is not very useful. This app tells you either "Ice full" or "making ice", no further information. Another disappointing thing is the fact that this app tells you about "Needs Cleaning". I did cleaning process following the manual, but the warningn sign in the app was not turned off but remained still. There is no way to turn off this warning sign, so whenever I use the app, I should see the warning sign. I do not know this is a sensor issue in my machine or a glitch of the app, but either way, this is another annoying factor of this machine.

The crunchy ice I've been missing...

COLBERTNOTION 5/3/2022

I haven't had an icemaker at home in a long time and when I bought my latest refrigerator, I intentionally went with a model that didn't have an icemaker built in because I'd been hearing "horror" stories of units going bad (after warranty of course). When I found the Opal, I had to have it. Best purchase I've made in a while.

Love the ice, Opal leaves something to be desired!

Iced34566 4/30/2022

Directions are nonexistent. The app from GE sucks. The app from Haier is mediocre. Doing the cleaning is almost impossible mainly because the touchpad is not very sensitive nor does it give a great target area so that you know you're in the right area when nothing is happening when you're pressing where it says clean or power or light. Here are some things to think about GE. One have somebody who has the product with them using it every day write the instructions. Two have someone who doesn't have the product walk through the instructions and make sure they make sense. Three have another person try out the instructions and make sure they actually work as designed. For don't release an application or an appliance before it's ready. Five have resources available when your questions about the things you don't bother to put in an instruction booklet or video online outside of 9 to 5. One final thought I noticed when I was trying to find instructions on the ceiling that the previous unit have a light inside so that they could see where the fill line is. This is a big deal for the opal dispenser because it's all black in the area where you put in the water is about I'd say 8 inches by maybe 7 inches maybe it's 10" x 7" it's not very big that's my point and it's dark you can't use a picture to fill it you can't use most cups because the access point is too small to pour the water in this causes problems not only to fill it to clean it but to put your hand in to try to put in a new filter the filter again no instructions couple pictures and I think maybe arrows and I tried myself personally for an hour trying to get out the filter that's currently in the machine and I haven't been able to figure it out it doesn't pop out which is what they suggest and I feel like if I if I push any harder that it's gonna break something I tried to call but nobody works for help except when I'm at work.

Disappointed in this new model

bvlivinggirl 4/19/2022

This is my 3rd opal ice maker and i have to say I have been really disappointed in the quality of this machine. We have had it just over one week and I have spent the week nursing this machine to get ice. Additionally, this one dispenses ice so slowly it makes the other models with a scoop a much faster option. This machine does not tell you how much ice is available, continues to spend hours in defrost mode and request water be added when the machine is full of water.

Side tank issues

Ty38 4/13/2022

I've only had it about a week, and it's working fine. Except it's having issues pulling water from the side tank. Lifting the side tank temporarily solves the problem but has to be done regularly. I'm hoping this resolves it's self soon but kind of a bummer.

KPhillips54 4/11/2022

Just installed tonight. A couple of things I noticed. You have to have a small container to add water to the reservoir and I don't see a away to tell how much ice has been made or how much water is left in the side tank. This is the fourth Opal I have purchased and wish they would last longer. I absolutely LOVE the ice!!

Great ice maker

Rae22 4/8/2022

We bought this in addition to keep up with our ice machine for our fridge. So far we are loving this ice machine. The only downside and reason I didn't give this a 5 star is because we cannot fill up 1 large yeti cup without running out of ice but this product does produce ice very fast.

Not ready for market

Evance0704 4/1/2022

It's not quite ready for market. The ice on the chute into the ice storage gets stuck easy triggering false "Ice Bin Full." It dispenses ice randomly, minutes after touching the button. It does not make anywhere close to 36lbs of ice per day. It constantly has to go into defrosting mode even with distilled water and descaling weekly. The ice storage is not insulated very well. Ice melts extremely quickly despite being on the open counter for no heat to hang around it. In the end I'd pass on the dispenser. Not worth the trade off's just to dispense ice.

Not quite there yet, just go for the Opal 2.0

Evance0704 4/1/2022

I was pretty excited to pick up one of these Opal dispensers. I figured it had similar upgrades as the Opal 2.0. I have a Opal 1 as well and have compared my experiences. If you are purchasing for it's "claimed in perfect conditions" 36lbs of ice per day, 1.65lbs per hour, it has never gotten close. It's about the same as my Opal 1.0. My Opal 1.0 would never go into defrosting, this one does everyday. I thought it might be due to the new activated carbon filter limiting water flow however, even with the metal screen it still freezes up. Let me add I'm running it with distilled water and descale it about every week with the Opal cleaning kit. Let's talk about the dispensing aspect. This dispenser still uses the IR ice bin full sensors. Also the dispenser ice storage melts a lot quicker then the Opal 1.0. I also think the ramp or guide that drops the ice into the ice storage is not angled enough. Ice gets stuck on it and makes the unit think it's still full of ice. Even though it maybe is only 25% full from it melting. It does this mostly when sitting for more then 1-2 hours without dispensing. When pushing the dispense button it works great and stops about 5 seconds after you release as the manual says. However, it will be minutes after you touched the button and it will start dispensing again for 1-2 seconds, dumping ice all over the counter. I'm guessing that could be fixed with a software update. Overall with essentially the same speed ice production as the 1.0 and 2.0 Opal, small ice bin capacity, and the phantom dispensing I'd go for the Opal 2.0 or wait for the second generation Opal dispenser.

The GE Profile Opal Nugget Ice Maker Dispenser is a must have for entertaining, as well as everyday use. It uses a Wi-Fi app that allows you to schedule the ice. That is just brilliant! It requires no water hookup and can make ice in less than 30 minutes. It is compact and portable, so it is convenient to move, if needed. And who doesn't like the little nugget cubes. The dispenser is a very nice feature, so a scoop isn't needed. I highly recommend it.

My guests fell in love with it and are looking to purchase one. The fact that it requires no water hookup and can make ice in less than 30 minutes is amazing. It is compact and portable, so it is convenient to move, if needed. And who doesn't like the little nugget cubes. The dispenser is a very nice feature my current ice maker doesn't have. I highly recommend it.

Best and Quickest Ice Maker I Have Used!

Jbrown304 2/14/2022

Best ice maker I have used! There was nothing like that soft chewable restaurant opal ice until I used this ice maker. You don't even need to add the ice to a drink, just eat it plain and it makes the perfect little opal ice nuggets. The ice maker itself is super easy to use. It tells you exactly what it is doing on the front display such as making ice, ice bin is full, or even when to add water. The side water tank is very helpful. You fill up the tank and it decreases the amount of time you would normally take to refill the water reservoir. While making the ice, you can't even hear it like a regular freezer makes ice. After adding the water, the ice is made within about 20 minutes, and starts making fresh ice after dispensing and the ice bin gets too low. The installation of the side water tank was very easy and the instructions were very clear. I would highly recommend this ice maker to anybody!

MAKES PERFECT NUGGET ICE

KCC05 2/13/2022

If you love ice as much as I do then you understand when I say that this machine makes "good ice". It tastes so good and crunches perfectly. This ice machine was so perfect for our small Superbowl party. I love that this machine has a dispenser and I do not have to worry about dipping ice or people putting their hands in there to scoop ice out. The dispenser keeps everything so sanitized and clean. This machine was very easy to set up and use. The instructions were fairly easy to follow. The size of this ice machine is perfect. It fits perfectly on my countertop and doesn't take up much room. I love that it doesn't look big and bulky. This ice machine definitely has some weight to it. The downfalls about this ice machine is that it takes a while to make a full bin of ice. It also doesn't make a lot of ice. It filled up about a half a gallon size freezer bag before it was empty and started making ice again. So I would definitely recommend this for smaller gatherings or just for at home use. I really like the side tank accessory. This makes it where I don't have to constantly fill up the reservoir and it will automatically do it for me. Another great thing about this ice machine is the touch screen. I really like how user friendly it is and that it can be used even when the machine is off. This is a really great product to have and I highly recommend it.

Guilty pleasure!

Randommomlife 2/8/2022

Everyone in the house, from the kids to the dogs, loves crunching ice. The ice in our freezer is hard and stinky (and the water line leaks),so this has been perfect. It makes perfectly crunchable ice and makes for way better fancy drinks. The speed of making is awesome, making this perfect for get togethers as well!

Very bulky

glitterSmitter 2/7/2022

I have a small kitchen and it ate up a lot of counter space. It basically does the same job as an ice-dispenser in your fridge just a little fancy. Honestly I would not get it unless you have a lot of space.

Best Nugget Ice!

StacieG 2/1/2022

I was so excited to try out this machine. Nugget ice is the "good ice". This machine so very easy to use. I trust GE products and this did not disappoint. This ice tasted so much better then regular ice that my refrigerator makes.

Decent Product

sloach37 1/31/2022

There was quite a bit involved in trying to get this ice maker setup. One thing to note is it is very bulky. It doesn't fit on my counters due to how tall it is. Another thing I noticed is the ice that comes out is not very cold. The liquid in my cup seemed to melt the ice almost immediately.

Nugget

AngieT 67 1/31/2022

GE Opal Nugget Ice Machine is awesome. Easy to set up. Make sure you clean it about 4 times before using. Needs to be cleaned about every 3 weeks. It tells you when it's cleaning, making ice. You need to fill the tank with water. Doesn't take long to make ice. The only negative thing are it's a little hard to put water in the bottom of the tank. I love it so far.

Countertop luxury!

Olivia Moon 1/30/2022

This is the small appliance you never knew you needed! Installation is a breeze with the instruction guide. The first thing you do is fill it with water and let the machine run a 'clean' cycle. After that you locate and remove the screened intake cap and place in the water filter. I appreciate the side tank being a free floating piece so that you can place it on either side of the ice machine. The water lines in the rear of the machine are labeled and easy to handle. After draining the water from the clean cycle, by letting the lines hang right over into the kitchen sink. I was able to attach the side tank line and put the machine in place. The machine is quiet, I can hear the fish tank filter over the machine. It didn't take long to hear ice being made, impressive. The LED screen lets you know when it's 'making ice' and then 'ice bin full'. I love that it dispenses the ice, there's no bin to open or need for a scoop! If using a tall glass you can place it right under the dispenser and hit the button. If using a short glass, I suggest holding your glass up near the dispenser as the ice falls out. Overall I am very happy with the Opal Nugget Ice Maker. Everyone is enjoying the fun and convenience of having filtered fancy ice! I will add the taste of the ice is perfect, but we do not use tap water and I know everyone's water source will determine how your ice tastes and how often you will need to descale your machine. We've chosen to fill our reservoir with already filtered water.

All the yummy little ice nugs you could ask for

Onebusymommax5 1/29/2022

There isn't anyone who has ever come to our house who didn't want a cold something along with a healthy serving of this ice. It's an addicting, non fat, zero calorie magic maker. Makes an incredible amount of ice faster than we can decide what we are pouring over it. It's very easy to use once you've got it placed and plugged in. Bigger than your average small appliance but well worth the space it takes up on the counter top.

Great piece of equipment

Kc135bmr 1/28/2022

So I just picked this up recently and so far, I can't complain. Setup was a breeze, though I will say the directions are kind of vague. I like the fact that this can be used with or without the additional water tank. They ice come out perfect and the machine gets to work right away, quickly producing ice. The machine comes with a Bluetooth app which is just meh, not much functionality. My only issue with the machine is when using it without the tank, it's rather inconvenient to add water to the internal reservoir. Overall, this is a solid product which I'm glad to have added to my home bar.

No more bagged ice!

Surely1 1/28/2022

Years ago our refrigerator waterline broke in the attic, and it's too much of a pain to go up and fix, so we have been buying and hauling bags of ice home. The GE Profile Opal ice maker is the perfect tool to fix all that. Getting the ice maker up and running is super simple. Most of the work was in cleaning the reservoir and side water tank for the first time. After that I could hear ice dropping within 15 minutes of starting the ice making process. The ice maker runs with very little noise. I was able to sit at the kitchen counter for work video meetings while it was running. The only negatives I have about the ice maker are in the instructions. Trying to figure out what "filter screen" to remove and replace with the water filter took some investigative skills and a flashlight. I've included a picture of where the filter goes (the filter screen to remove would be to the left side of the reservoir. It is very teeny). The instructions also do not mention removing the water line from the side tank to empty when cleaning, and only mentions removing the other line. I couldn't figure out why the reservoir would not fully drain because of this. Know you know, though, so all will be smooth for you! Highly recommend due to great quality ice! No more lugging heavy bags of ice that melt before getting home or cause huge chunks that can't be broken up. No more wasted money, time, and effort to have great ice!
