    THE BEST DESIGNED, COLDEST, AND MOST QUIET

    Posted
    BOSCHFAN

    The interior spill proof shelves are slide-on. The refrigerator door shelves can hold a gallon of milk and are slide-on as well, they are not the clip on shelves that break, leaving items crashing to the floor. By comparison, the same Whirlpool and Maytag models at 180 to 200 dollars more have three clip on shelves and the common complaint is that they run loud—this model runs quietly. The LG model at 180 more, tends to run too warm, even at its highest setting, this model keeps it cold, without getting your milk and juice icy. The two main issues with this model are that there is no freezer light and the interior shelving does not have many options if you want to store soda, juice, and milk at the top—the second shelf becomes downgraded to a low overhead slot, where you can store a couple of muffin trays leaving the third shelf with enough space to store a pot of left overs. The freezer is perfect if you tend to overstuff the freezer. If you can afford everything from Bosch, but don't want the expense or complexity of their french door models than this is the fridge for you. GE statistics online show that it runs higher on repairs when compared to Whirlpool and subsidiary Maytag, but upon further inspection it is generally an ice maker or water dispenser that breaks. An ice maker is optional with this model, which is another reason I bought it. I like ice trays myself. The ice maker unit is the item that breaks across the board on all models of all refrigerators. GE has a better repair infrastructure than Samsung or LG.

    This is a very nice refrigerator lots large item space on the bottom of refrigerator door Ben shelf and theres plenty of room above on the other two door ben shelfs the center and the top for everything that you might want from ketchup mustard mayonnaise ETC. Im happy with the space of this refrigerator there crispers that are not controlled adjustments ones nor is there a delie drawer but it makes up for it with the glass shelfing thats adjustable and the door ben shelfing and the frezzer space. Is great also I went without a ice maker this time around so I can have more space for a few more items in my freezer which I think will be okay you can always buy a bag of ice and as far as the deli drawer I've always had one but with a little adjustment I'll never miss it i believe it cuts down on shelfing area anyway this is a quiet running GE refrigerator Considering what a competitor sounds like ha ha very loud noisy and junk im very happy with my new unit functions i give it a A+ thunbs up BUT when this unit was packaged up the quality control failed to see dents on the top left side and top right side along with nick marks all across the top of the frezzer and there was dents in the rear panel a scratch on the bottom frezzer door and marks from the shelfing rails from installation and when i roll it back into place this unnoticeable the damage keeps me from scores higher than 4 star rating this is a very quiet running refrigerator and yes i would buy it again with the same set as it is now and it keeps cold i have 2 thermometers one of the freezer and one of the refrigerator that I check out every time I open them up and they're always cold freezer runs around - 2 degrees the refrigerator is running right at freezing right at factory settings everything's cold

    6 months later and it's not working

    Fridgeproblems

    I got this after the Kenmore fridge I'd purchased brand new stopped working completely after 2 months. This one had similar size and features (i.e. very basic, which is what I wanted), and similar price. Initially it worked pretty good, but like the Kenmore, it did not seem to keep things very cold. I had to keep turning the dial to "colder" to keep things like milk from spoiling within a couple days. However, it at least continued to work marginally well, and unlike the Kenmore, I did not need to turn it to the very coldest setting to keep everything from becoming room temp. However, tonight I opened the freezer to look for something. I took out several items and replaced them. Closed it back up. Didn't think much of it. Then a couple hours later I went in to freezer to get some of those Otter pops that come in liquid form that you place in freezer to turn to popsicles. None had frozen. Not even an ice crystal. I had bought some a week or so ago that froze within an hour. So that seemed weird. I took them out of the box and spread them out in the freezer. An hour later, nothing. And I noticed that the other popsicles I had in there were starting to get soft. I turned the dial up and left it. Came back 20 minutes later and the fridge still hadn't turned on. I tried it again. Nothing. The light still works, so it's not the electrical. Seems the refrigeration, either the thermostat or the compressor, just stopped working. So I now have a fridge and freezer full of food that I'm guessing will be bad by tomorrow. I have no idea why I have such bad luck with refrigerators, but this is truly ridiculous. Will be calling store tomorrow for what I hope is a replacement.

    Best Refrigerator Purchase for Smaller Kitchen

    Posted
    CleanEngineer

    This GTS21FSKFSS unit with 20.8 cuft interior space was purchased as a replacement for a 9 year old GE model GTH21SBXASS. The new unit is just as quiet as the old one and has slightly smaller exterior cabinet dimensions. The new model fits the kitchen in our three-level townhouse perfectly. The interior of this refrigerator has a better layout, and cold air enters the compartment from the top of highest storage level and then flows down a gap between the back of each shelf and the rear wall of the compartment. It provides superior temperature control. When the temperature dial is set to one-third, the cabinet temperature varies between about 37 and 40 degrees, but the air flow entering the refrigerator compartment is not cold enough to freeze the vegetables. This was a problem in the old unit. The new unit freezer temperature is being held at 4 to 7 degrees F, and there is an air flow control located at the center of the rear wall in the freezer compartment. This is the best interior configuration and highest quality refrigerator on the market suitable for a 33" wide by 67" high installation space.

    Great Buy

    We've had this fridge for a little over a week now and we're very pleased. Both the fridge and freezer are a nice size; there's plenty of room to store lots of food. If I had a complaint it would be that the shelves in the fridge are not far enough apart to fit a two littler on any shelf. We actually ended up making one of our shelves about 4-6 inches tall so that the bottom shelf was tall enough to fit two liters. However, we've managed to make it work and found that we have several items that are short enough to fit on that oddly sized shelf. LOL. I definitely notice from time to time when it's running more often than our old fridge, but I wouldn't say it's loud by any standards. I also like that the fridge and freezer have separate controls to keep things just right in both. Actually, the fridge often runs very cold at a low setting! If purchased from Best Buy, their Geek Squad protection seems to be the best warranty for the price by far. Overall, pleased with the purchase and would recommend.

    I will only buy GE Refrigerators

    In my previous life, I worked at one of the manufacturing plants that make these GE refrigerators. Once I started working there, I vowed that I would only buy GE refrigerators after seeing how they were made. This refrigerator is no exception. This refrigerator is more simplistic in terms of features. Only one temperature control for the fresh food section, and one temperature control for the freezer. If you like simple, then go with this one! Although this specific model does not come with an icemaker, one can be purchased and installed by oneself in 30 minutes. My only complaint is that I wish there would have been a GE badge included that could be placed in the door screw hole not being used by the door. Other than my minor nit, this refrigerator is well built.

    Bought this unit to replace my dying 5-yr old Kenmore fridge. As a kid we had a GE fridge that lasted well over 20-yrs so when it was time to get a new one I told my wife this time it has to be a GE brand. I loved how quiet this unit was compared to the Kenmore. The fridge temp is maintained just below 40. The white LED light is very nice. There is no light though in the freezer but I can live without it. The inside is spacious and the door shelves are wide enough for dairy and condiments. If you're looking for a simple big fridge I highly recommend this.

    Seems to b a good fridge... I got this to replace a diff brand under geek squad warranty.. Handle cam b moved to either side.. I believe ice maker is available..only complaint is that there is only crisper drawers at bottom. No " meat " drawer on middle shelf in fridge area.. Not a huge deal but was a lil easier to organize before... Still a decent fridge and does what I need it to do. Also great price. I suggest warranty on any electronic item.. Just my .02 cents.

    Bought a refrigerator, stove and microwave for my mother who lives in a condo. It's difficult finding the correct size with a good name brand and quality. The salesmen were very helpful and kind in the store. Delivery went very well and quick. My only issue was that I needed the fridge handles to be opposite of the way they came. I specifically asked for this in the store. It took an hour to switch it myself. Still all in all I'm extremely satisfied.

    Horrible delivery experience

    katlyn

    My refrigerator was delivered without parts--screws to hold on handles and plugs for side handle was not on. My old one was taken away and then I found out they didn't have the parts and it would take 2 more 4 hour windows to be home to get the parts if they have them. Also it was not leveled properly. It is loud but I may still like it if I ever get it assembled. I will never buy from Best Buy again.

    I got this fridge after I returned the lg fridge. I must say it’s a great fridge. Lots of room ! I can actually fit a whole pizza! I have family of 4 and I still don’t have complains of space. Very quiet fridge when it’s starts making noise my air purifiers is louder. Needless to say I love my fridge. Plus smudge proof ! My only complaint is I wish the black stainless was through the fridge

    I had my last refrigerator for 19 years and was not looking forward to getting a new one. I tried to find a refrigerator that was as close to being like my last one as I could find. This refrigerator is very similar. The size of the refrigerator, freezer compartment, and setup of the shelves are almost identical. This refrigerator is quieter than my last. So far, I am very happy with it.

    I purchased this product because I was in need if a new one. I read reviews of this on this site as well as others about it. Some we good some were bad. I think this fridge is a good buy. The price was good and the size is something I was looking for. It's spacious. The only draw back is that it doesn't have a a middle drawer that I had in my previous fridge. Overall I like the product.

    We purchased this fridge as an open box floor display so we got a real good deal on it. So far we are very happy with its looks and performance. We especially like that the front stainless steel is magnetic so we can hang pictures or notes. It's keeping our food cold. Working great so far. Happy with the purchase.

    Functions well. Quiet. Overall design is nice. Sturdy vegetable drawers open smoothly. Full single shelves help maximize available space. Top shelf space is restricted by large center light. Placing items and removing them is needlessly difficult as you must maneuver around the fixture.

    I gave my refrigerator to my daughter for her apartment, and replaced with newly purchased. Description a little misleading on "LED lighting"--not what I expected, but otherwise product is very nice & suitable. However, NOT like they used to make them with better quality materials (made to last longer) LOL! Happy with purchase & Delivery was great! :)

    Early to tell. We chose this unit because it fits the space available. The old one was noisy and had bad seals. We're hoping this one is more efficient and will save a little on the electric bill. We did not need an ice maker as we have another fridge that has one. Also the there is no convenient water source near the fridge. So far...no comlaints.

    The stainless steel GE refrigerator suits my needs. If you’re looking for a basic refrigerator that doesn’t have all the additional features (i.e., water dispenser) this is the one to buy.

    The refrigerator was what I expected. It's really nice. It doesn't make noise and runs very well. The only down fall is no drawer on the middle shelf like what I had on my previous fridge. I used it for deli items. Other than that it's perfect for me.
