      QUIET ONE

      Posted
      HappyCamper

      I searched for a couple of weeks trying to find the quietest frdige I could as I couldn't stand another frige with whiny fans. Saw conflicting reviews on this model, but as more than one said it was quiet, I was interested. The no-clean condenser was also a plus, as we have cats. Our new fridge arrived yesterday and I am quite pleased. The condenser was quiet and the large, low speed condenser fan made a pleasant, low pitched and barely audible sound, much like a big window fan on low. Why only 4 stars? Well unfortunately, the freezer fan was making some noise when I first plugged the unit in and I had to pull the cover off the freezer fan and tuck some insulation back that was protruding and hitting the fan blades. Once this was done, all was quiet. I hope this was a one-off, but if the freezer fan is making noise, this was easy to fix. The cover pulls off from the top by pressing simultaneously on the top and side tabs (don't forget to pull the plug first!). An unfortunate glitch, but I was so happy with the fridge once this was taken care of all is forgiven! For those interested in noise, smaller condenser fans in some fridges run at higher speeds and make a higher pitched and more irritating whine. If noise is your issue, look for a fridge with a larger, slower running fan like this fridge has and you'll be a Happy Camper like me!

      Not the best fridge...look elsewhere

      This GE - 17.5 Cu. Ft. Frost-Free Top-Freezer Refrigerator in White is not the best fridge. It keeps food items cool, but not cold. The first day it was installed and plugged in it was faulty for about an hour - it just went off and on. We unplugged it and let is sit overnight and then plugged it back in in the morning and it has stayed on ever since. I'm not sure if it's just this one, or if all units like this are the same. And again, it doesn't keep food as cold as it should.

      refrigerator not working properly

      Posted
      gwid

      For full disclosure the model number of the appliance I bought is slightly different: GTE18GTERWW, but otherwise it seems to be identical. fridge was installed by BestBuy on 8/29/16. Installation was not what I would call professional because the fridge wobbled and was jammed under a kichen cabinet such that I couldn't open the cabinet doors. Fridge worked fine for about 2 weeks. Eventually the freezer temp dropped to -20F (measured with a lab thermometer) and the fridge compartment got warmer and warmer - currently at 58F. Lots of ice buildup in the freezer. Fan runs continuously 24/7 - never stops.

      We purchased this refrigerator in slate to match our other appliances. Only the 17.5 cu ft. size would fit the space in our older home. I was so bummed because it was more expensive than the larger fridge that is always on sale and I thought it would be a bit too narrow, but it was the only one that would fit our space. Now that we have it installed, it looks and fits perfectly in our kitchen. The fan is a bit louder than our old refrigerator when it cycles, but it doesn't run all the time and you get used to it after a while.

      JUNK

      Freezer will not cool below 15 degrees, should be 0 degrees for ice cream to be solid. Refrigerator turns on and off every 3 minutes. GE service was out twice. First time said I had too much in the freezer. Even though its 2 cubic feet doesn't mean you can actually use all 2 cubic feet according to GE service. Second time GE took a photo of what I had in the freezer and needed to send it to GE engineers to get a fix for the problem. Never saw such a circus. Up to now GE has done nothing but look at what I had in the freezer. AVOID THIS REFRIGERATOR.

      Great basic refrigerator

      Only had our Energy Star G.E. refrigerator for not quite two wks. So far so good. It replaced our 1979 G.E. which was still working and had never needed servicing.. Hoping this new one gives us the same kind of service. I do wish the light was in the back of the refrigerator and not in the front middle. I have bumped my head on it twice. Also my ice bin was too wide to fit in the door shelf of the freezer. (I didn't want an ice maker.)

      Seems a bit loud

      I bought this refrigerator for my garage. It's working fine although it seems a bit loud. Don't know if I would buy it from Best Buy again. when it was delivered, they just dropped it and left. the legs were on so tight I couldn't level them, it didn't come with an owners manual, and on the back of the fridge the cardboard that covers the motor was ripped, bent and hanging off. I think they sent me an open box or reconditioned refrigerator.

      Noisy

      Decided after 24 years and increasing noise from our current refrigerator, it was time to get a new one before it died. Liked this refrigerator because it was comparable in size, features and color to our old one. But this one makes more noise than our old one! Also it is a little smaller than our old one and I regret we did not get something bigger.

      GE GTE18GMHES review
      Shopping for a budget fridge usually means settling on a boring build that's devoid of design-minded features. True to form, the $800 GE GTE18GMHES top-freezer fridge is nothing fancy, but it at least looks the part of something slightly lessFull Review
