This thing is absolutely dead silent. It never makes a noise, other than when I finally was curious about the icemaker, and turned on the icemaker function. Then I could hear it slightly when the ice cubes dropped. But it's horrendously SLOW - I turned it on before bed one night, about midnight or so, and it was about 7 AM I heard the first cubes hit the container. Almost 48 hours later, I still only have the single layer on the bottom of the ice container. Not even a second layer piled up yet in 2 days. So don't rely on this icemaker for anything like parties, it's WAY too slow. Even the 12 year old Kenmore Elite it replaced made ice way, way faster than this.
My other concern is the seal. Where the doors both close at top, near that small cut out slit for the folding part of the left door, each side's seal bulges out slightly as if they're supposed to meet and overlap. But they don't meet. So I can actually see this slit in the plastic where the folding part goes, and when you open the door and look, there's nothing else in there to keep cold in or warm out, so that 1/4" gap is literally a hole straight into the fridge. Seems poor engineering on their part that they can't even seal the fridge shut completely. Still trying to find out if this is an intentional design feature for some reason, that it has to maintain some way to flow air from in to out or something. You can literally see the light coming through this with the doors closed before the lights turn off.
I was originally looking at a GE fridge because I liked the LED lights down in the crisper drawer area that they explicitly showed, it wasn't lit just from on top like this looked. I was pleased to find that this also has LED's on each side of the fridge in the crisper area, so they are well lit too. No photos I saw anywhere revealed that feature, so I wanted to mention it specifically since it was one of the things that almost decided me against this unit.
I didn't want one this wide, since I knew it was going to be a squeeze. But my area was a hair over 36" wide, so I knew it SHOULD fit, but what I wasn't sure about, and what caused me problems, were the wheels and the base. My other fridge had wheels slightly more inside, so the baseboard wasn't an issue. But this one apparently doesn't have any forgiveness at the bottom - the shoe molding had to be ripped out, and it's still kind of squeezed in there... I probably should've pulled off the entire baseboard piece but left it was it was since it was in and appeared level without us having to do any adjustments with it.
I can't stress how quiet this thing is. Amazing compared to my last one, which didn't make much noise either, and I always thought was very quite, but compared to this, wasn't as quiet as it could've been...
I like the wide pull out deli drawer on the bottom, that was actually the feature that made me pick this despite the apparent lack of LED lights in the crisper area. I love it for the lunch meat, cheese, and such. We get shrimp sometimes, which since we're in Wisconsin is usually frozen, so it is a good place to defrost that as well, although I still have to play some with the temp adjustment to find what works best for what.
Freezer compartment is decent, but I wish there had been a way to remove the icemaker part, since you lose a chunk of space on that top left shelf because of it, and since we usually had the water turned off and didn't use the icemaker, for us it's simply lost space. But it's just me and my son, so it wasn't as if suddenly we couldn't fit food anymore. And the space lost is actually less than I lost with the old fridge's unused icemaker. I kind of miss having the separate area on the door that I used to have, since that, with a shelf inside my old top freezer fridge, gave me three separate areas I could organize my food into, but we're learning to adapt to having to deal with a sliding shelf to get at stuff in the bottom of the freezer. It's a bit more of a pain, but we use the freezer maybe 1% of the time if you simply count how many times we are opening each door. For me, having all the fridge stuff easily accessible at waist level or higher, no bending down to get something out of the back of the bottom shelf all the time, makes the freezer inconvenience well worth it. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes even just going in for a bottle of juice or iced tea.
There is so much more room in here than the one we replaced, it looked naked and empty after we moved all the foot into it from the old fridge, which looked pretty averagely filled.
I still have to find the right adjustments for the shelves for our use, I haven't changed them from the default yet, since the doors have so much storage for large things, we haven't had to get much in the shelves yet that wouldn't fit the standard layout.
I like the quick slide shelf though that you can adjust so it slides back, and leaves a temporary tall spot for something on the lower shelf to fit higher than it could. I had that in the fridge I replaced, where I kept my iced tea jugs. Not so critical now though with the space on the doors.
The one thing I miss is a place for my eggs and butter.
The outside is definitely a fingerprint magnet, so get one of the nice microfiber cloths for stainless steel and the cleaning stuff specifically for it.
All told, other than the gap I haven't figured out yet leaving a hole directly into the fridge uncovered, and the insanely slow ice maker, this is a sweet, sweet fridge. If it weren't for the hole I haven't figured out, I'd give it 5 stars.
