I'm looking for a refrigerator, and found someone who's liquidating his house to move and was using this GE Monogram as a second fridge (36" W, 20.6 CuFt french door with two freezer drawers).  He said he got it several years ago for $800 as a scratch-and-dent, that there's nothing wrong with it except he can't find the ice bucket.  He's throwing it in to sweeten the deal on some patio furniture we're considering.  Seems like a great deal, but is there anything I need to know about this model or model line?  Two AJ Madison reviews mentioned problems, but otherwise I've found very little about reliability online. 

Appliance parts places online tend to want $70-80 for the OEM ice bucket.  Any better deals to be had?

In my experience, there is nothing worse about GE compared to other brands of refrigerators.   Most common failure I’ve encountered is the evaporator fan in the fresh food compartment.   Pretty easy for a DIYer to replace if need be.

Is it running and cooling now? Can’t tell you how many times customers have bought used units that work, come to find out they actually don’t.

Thanks for the replies.  It was running and in use in the guy's laundry room. 

We passed on it, which is fine; probably going to stick with the top-freezer layout.  I'm a little taken aback though, that so many mfrs don't put a light in the freezer...
