Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by GE28 refrigerator very noisy
Within the first 3 months the refrigerator made lots of noise. By the 6 month the refrigerator section was not consistent in cooling; it would freeze vegetables and eggs, and would go into a warmer, not good, cooling cycle......getting louder and louder all the time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by SWhit good value if I can get the noise problem fixed, I have a service call pending.
this is a good value, but the unit makes a loud growling type noise and a noise that sounds like a swarm of bees which are intermittent while the compressor is running. The noise is loud enough to wake me at night. I have called for warranty service which is scheduled for next week.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by Artifex Like Others Have Said - Noisy
This is an inexpensive refrigerator, so you have to take that into account. Others have commented this is a noisy refrigerator which I discounted because people have different perceptions of what constitutes "noisy". Plus, it would be in a corner of the office and we have a music system to provide background noise.
Appearance is nice, basic features, simple and exactly what we ordered for the office. We plugged it in and it started right up - and no noise issue; it ran quiet, or as quiet as any other refrigerator. This lasted for about three months and then one day it started making fairly loud horrendous noises, loud enough to drown out the background music. It did not sound like a good noise, either; it made a grinding noise similar to when a bearing is going out. We noticed then that stuff in the freezer was melting, so in addition to the loud grating noise it also wasn't cooling. It may have been going through a defrost cycle or something, but bad bearing noises and stuff melting in the freezer was not a good sign. We pulled it out, unplugged it, let it sit for a couple hours (in my experience you would be surprised at how many refrigerator issues this fixes), plugged it back in and it cooled down just fine and has for the last month, month and a half. The grinding noise comes back infrequently, but never as persistent and as loud as the first occasion.
So, I don't have high hopes for this unit long term since it basically failed after approximately three months. Would I buy another one? Probably not. Would I recommend it? Probably not.
It looks good, is functional, but I am suspicious of the quality now.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by Beth Sleek, fits in tight places but VERY NOISY!
Bought on sale, decent price. Efficient shelving for a my family but terribly noisy. Makes strange noises day and night of a wide variety, thought it was going to explode at some point! Called GE to get repair man to check out the issue, not too difficult to get them but was basically told there was nothing to about the sound either to learn to live with it or return it.
