Where do you find the serial number on a fridge?

This chart was helpful but did not list the first two digits of the model number for my GE Talisma fridge.  If the letters are SY, what does the Y stand for?
Thanks

I found the chart helpful, and verifies information I had worked out from a dozen GE refrigerator owners manuals. But might we look at the difference between serial numbers and model numbers? The term serial number is used for the chart. But is the chart really referring to serial numbers?

I have a 1948 GE Space Maker refrigerator with the model number on a tag, which reads: NB-8-EB. The refrigerator design is consistent with 1948 ads for the Space maker. The 8 indicates cubic feet of capacity. The E in the second letter group would seem to indicate the year made. And these letter codes work out with most all the late 40s and early 50s models seen so far. The meaning of the other letters are unknown, at least to me.

The chart indicates that the "serial numbers" begin with two letters which indicate year and month. But the serial number on my fridge does not begin with two letters. It begins with 8C and then a string of numbers.

Does anyone have this figured out? And does anyone know what the other letters in the model tag mean?

The chart as can be seen goes back to 1944. I am about to pick up a circa 1934 GE flat top refrigerator. Has anyone worked out models and years for pre 1944 GE refrigerators?
