Is there open venting along the bottom front of the freezer compartment?

GE 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator in White Model # GTH21KCXWW Internet # 100645351 Store SO SKU # 445297 We want to avoid an open vent in the bottom, front of the freezer as small particles tend to fall in and make it difficult to clean.

Yes and it is easily accessible. You have to remove it to gain access to the leveling screws.

Can I remove the icemaker?

We don't use many icecubes, so we don't need to have one. Is it easy to remove?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Meme, Thank you for your inquiry on the GE refrigerator. Model # GTH21KCXWW does have a factory installed icemaker. If you do not wnat to connect a water line and use the icemaker, it can be removed. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, then I would suggest to have a service technician come out to remove this. Please see the link below for scheduling service. Should you have any additional question , please let us know. Donna with GE

Water line essential?

I won't be using the ice maker in this appliance as I think it will be hard to connect the water line to our faucet line (which is on the opposite side of the kitchen). Do I still need to buy the water ice line if I want Home Depot to install this refrigerator? Your website says that it is needed for installation.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Valued Home Depot Customer, Thanks for your question and interest in this item. All refrigerators that comes with a factory installed icemaker, will need item #M931-PEX PLASTIC WATER/ICE LINE for $9.99 to operate the ice maker. This can be ordered when you place your order online. If you do not plan on using the icemaker, it is not required for installation. What’s Included in Free Delivery & Basic Service? All freestanding (does not include built in cooktops, wall ovens, drop ins, window air conditioners, through the wall air conditioner units, etc.) electric appliances will be uncrated, set in place, leveled, tested and connected to an existing proper power source. If proper electrical outlets, gas shut off valves, water supply and shut off valves, or venting sources are not available at the time of delivery, a complete hook up will not be possible. Basic hook up service does not include hook up or removal of built-in appliances such as wall ovens and cooktops, though in some areas consumers can purchase the hook up of gas appliances, dishwashers and over the range microwaves (OTRs/Spacemakers) at an additional charge. The new appliance will be tested to make sure it works correctly. All packing materials will be removed, and your home will be restored to its original condition. Certain complex installs, such as gas appliances and dishwasher installation, may require the purchase of additional services from a certified plumber or electrician. Please contact your local The Home Depot store for additional details in your area. The installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code and the National Electrical Code. If you have any further questions, please contact our Online Appliance Customer Service Department at 800-455-3869 between 6:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. Eastern Time daily. Thanks.

21 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator in Black is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase. For the money, this refridgerator provides all the space and features that I need. We did have an issue at the beginning with a leak underneath from the icemaker, but they sent a technician out very quickly to fix the problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor design, not well built I got this because it was the biggest I could find that would fit in my space, was Energy Star compliant, and had no ice maker. But I'm sorry I bought it. The doors aren't hung straight (an installation problem, not manufacturing.) The freezer door is slightly bowed. The gaskets do not make firm contact all around, leading to icing in the freezer and energy waste. There is no light in the freezer. Air circulation is problematic leading to warmer and colder spots in the fridge. The thermostats are in the way of putting food on the top shelf and are too easily jostled and inadvertently changed. The internal space is restricted by needs to maintain channels for air flow in hopes of keeping temperatures consistent and to enable defrosting. I gave it two stars instead of one because it is quiet and, so far, reliable, and GE has been responsive to my complaints - although their fixes did not work. I wouldn't buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient, Fast Cooling, Bountiful Ice Maker We have had this refrigerator for just over a year and are quite satisfied with it. It makes ice cubes very quickly, the slide-out shelves are convenient, and the well illuminated freezer compartment is great. The water filter is readily accessible from inside the main compartment. The water dispenser is also there but we have such good tap water that we rarely use it. We did have a GE service person correct a frost buildup problem in the freezer by installing a GE modification. This completely solved the problem and is free while the refrigerator is under warranty and only takes 20 or 30 minutes. Be very careful in leveling the refrigerator. The freezer door gasket does contain a magnetic strip but if the door to the main compartment closes too forcefully, it will cause the freezer door to pop open. If the leveling is not correct, the freezer door may stay open. Remember, when you close the door to the main compartment, it is compressing air and it has to go somewhere. It rises through the cooling tower into the freezer compartment. The quality and value for price is about average for this product. I rate this model as slightly above average in its class. You can pay much, much more and not receive a lot in return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just your basic average refrigerator, but so far it works great. So far it's working great. It's pretty quiet. The textured finish is nice, because finger prints aren't noticeable on the black finish. I don't have the ice maker hooked up yet since I haven't got a hose yet, so I can't rate it. Only thing I can complain about is that the plastic drawers don't slide out very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value This is a nice refrigerator, nothing fancy,but in this size nobody makes anything fancy. I would have liked more interior lighting, as the refrigerator has only one light and the freezer has none. It works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refrigerator-GE I purchased this refrigerator and was very pleased with their delivery policy. I like everything about the frig with the exception of there being no light in the freezer compartment. I really miss that. The other thing is the icemaker. My old frig had a much bigger icemaker. I miss that. However, my purchase looks real good. It is larger that my old one, but it fit in the space anyway. I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone who wants one that looks good and works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value, but questionable GE quality. I purchased this refrigerator from Home Depot, rather than two competitors, basis the Home Depot price. The M&E delivery crew were excellent. However, I experienced three GE quality problems after the crew left. 1.) The doors, etc. were held in place by glass reinforced tape. When the tape was removed, it left both adhesive and strands of reinforcement on the refrigerator. At the delivery crew's recommendation, I waited until the refrigerator reached room temperature and then used Gorilla Tape to remove the deposits. This took approx. 1 1/2 hours and most of a roll of tape to accomplish. 2.) Initially I could not adjust the temperature. I found that the refrigerator temperature control knob had been incorrectly installed 180° out of position. After removing the knob, re-straightening the metal tabs and installing the knob correctly, the temperature control worked correctly. 3.) The refrigerator was initially very noisy. Removing the lower rear panel revealed that a tube connected to the compressor was vibrating against that panel. (A piece of foam rubber had been installed on the panel where the tube made contact.) Carefully bending the tube away from the lower rear panel corrected the noise problem. (GE needs to re-route this tube to prevent this probem.) Since overcoming these problems, the refrigerator has operated flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits our kitchen perfectly. We purchased a house with stainless steel microwave, oven and dishwasher. This refrigerator matches the rest of the GE products. Plenty of room; fits just right. Delivery on time and helpful.
