Good basic refrigerator for 2 people. Mine is not loud as some reviews said.

This fridge is cheap and not even worth a low price.
1 Star Review   By Gail on Home Depot - May 6, 2013   

Large drawers for produce at bottom drag and squeak when pulled and drag the shelf above out of position. It runs most of the time and is very noisy. Poor surface on handles are hard to keep clean. Too few shelves and no secure egg shelf. Could not level it with the front legs because the wheels still kept the front too high off the floor when leveling legs were fully retracted , so it was way off level. I decided to return this after the first 24 hours.

Much quieter than the one it replaced..
5 Star Review   By RescueLady on Home Depot - Jan 8, 2013   

My 16-year old fridge died suddenly on Dec. 17 and I needed this same model to fit in the alcove. Home Depot arranged delivery for two days later during the busiest season of the year! It arrived when the delivery men said they would come. It is not at all noisy, but I wish the freezer had a shelf in the middle. I hate piling all the food on top of each other.The lower section is fine; I do not mind the wire shelves. The lowest shelf is a glass top on the veg. section. Great price and perfect temperature.

Better than I Expected!
4 Star Review   By JoeG on Home Depot - Jan 6, 2013   

This isn't a high end fridge but it is a good value for the money. The reviews I read about it being noisy scared me to the point I almost cancelled my order but I took delivery Friday, by no means is this a noisy unit, it is comparable to any fridge I have owned. I am not a a big fan of the wire shelves but for the $ this is a good value.

Great for the price.
5 Star Review   By RobertDustoff on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012   

Last G.E. only lasted 27 years; replaced with this one. Size was just right for our remodeled kitchen. Installed last December works super. We have a name for her it's "Mona" (like the noise), could care less. Just right for our needs. If it lasts as long as our last G.E. I will be 97 years old. Highly recommend-great delivery and haul off (free) from our local Home Depot store. (depot direct)

Inferior product
2 Star Review   By Hawaiigirl on Home Depot - Nov 8, 2012   

I purchased this refrigerator three years ago and will have to replace it soon. I've had many problems with it and have called the repair service three times (included in guarantee). The problems: 1) the seals didn't seal properly. This was evident by the number of little bugs that I found on the seals inside the fridge and the fact that the fridge fan seemed to be constantly running. 2) The fridge cools unevenly. I need to keep the freezer very cold because of large quantities of meat, but then the refrigerator part gets too cold and food on the top two shelves near the back even freezes. 3) The problem now is that occasionally, the fridge doesn't automatically start up. I noticed that when I have to door open a few minutes, for some reason, the fan doesn't turn on. I've waited for up to an hour, but it doesn't start. Once, the power went out for a second and after that, the fridge wouldn't turn on. I tried everything and finally, banging on the control box got the fridge started again. I don't trust it and will replace it. It's not worth paying for a repair guy. The last guy told me: It's the cheapest model. What do you expect?

4 Star Review   By Kait on Home Depot - Oct 30, 2012   

The Refrigerator is great, the price average, no real savings. I used Home Depot because the store was convenient and promised a quick delivery.

new refrigerator
5 Star Review   By Bunny on Home Depot - Sep 11, 2012   

Fits perfectly in the space for a small kitchen. I wish I had space for a fancier refrigerator but this is fine. Delivery guys rocked. Nice to have not have to pay for delivery and getting rid of old refrigerator. Nice to have the item go on sale when I needed to purchase a new refrigerator.

Best Option for small spaces
4 Star Review   By Portasan7D on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012   

Like most of the smaller footprint refrigerators this unit does have a bit of a noise issue. After a day or two you don't really notice. That said, everything else about this appliance is ideal. Good value and nice looking.

No happy with it!!
2 Star Review   By Monte on Home Depot - Jun 29, 2012   

In 5 month I had to changed the computer system. Stop to working. After 1 year I have to changed the fan. If you buy it, get the extender warranty. Like I did. I do not buy other again.

LOUD - DO NOT PURCHASE
1 Star Review   By Steve on Home Depot - Jun 13, 2012   

This is the worst experience with a GE product I have ever had. The GE repairman stated that the number one complaint about the refrigerator is its noise. It wakes me up at night. DO NOT PURCHASE!!

NOISY! Look at other brands for a frig this size.
2 Star Review   By MidSouthMom on Home Depot - May 25, 2012   

Good grief! We bought this as an extra frig. Space-wise it's just fine. Does the job but....This thing sounds like an airplane taking off the way it rumbles. I am soooooo glad it's not inside our kitchen. This is the first and LAST GE refrigerator I will ever buy. (and I'm looking for a new refrigerator for our kitchen.)

WAY TOO NOISY !!!!
2 Star Review   By Referreview on Home Depot - May 17, 2012   

I bought this refrigerator for a mobile home I stay in during the work so I only needed a smalll refer as well as the mobile only offers space. It fits the size bill it's really noisy !!!! It sounds like a jet taking off when it runs and the fan sounds like the one I replaced in my Whirlpool at home because I felt it was too noisy. I'm disappointed.

perfect for what was needed, a smaller refrigerator that would fit through a tight space
5 Star Review   By Grandma on Home Depot - Apr 22, 2012   

The 16.5 cu. ft. dimensions were the same as one with less space--this model came with shelves and bins and the other smaller one had none.

Noisy and cheaply made
1 Star Review   By Sonja on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

This refridgerator is very noisy, making strange moaning sounds. There is no upper interior drawer for items such as lunch meat or cheese and the two bottom interior drawers are cheaply made, squeaking horribly when pulled out. The only good thing I can say about this refrigerator is that it's cold. Other than that, a big disappointment!

Gets the job done. Free delivery and haul away is great, and the delivery guys were excellent.

Noisy but works like a charm
4 Star Review   By swit on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2012   

This fridge is your standard work-horse. It makes some funny noises when it runs, but the inside is spacious, easy to clean and our food is magically always the perfect temperature. Ahh what a relief!
