Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bobtails Great product!
Love the size of this refrigerator. The only thing missing is a light in the freezer. My bad for not looking harder - but not that big of a deal. The refrigerator and freezer do get very cold quickly. My old fridge must have been dying a slow death for the last 3 years since it never got this cold.

Rated 1 out of 5 Poor Quality with multiple issues
First and foremost I would like all to know that my interaction with Home Depot was first class.
After 30 years of being a loyal GE customer I will never purchase another GE product. Due to various and multiple issues GE replaced my fridge 3 times. The unit is loud, loud and loud. There were also multiple gasket issues allowing outside air to leak into the freezer causing excessive ice buildup and outside air into the fridge causing excessive running and fresh food freezing. The rear fridge cover would not fit onto the rear panel after the ice maker tubes were installed so I ended up cutting the rear panel to allow it to fit.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bunny It's ok--so far
First of all, I had a GE bottom freezer with inside water dispenser and ice maker--Profile--started having problems with it 6 years in. Finally, @ 9 years--repairman came to fix it and completely killed it. Did some research bc didn't want all those bells and whistles if fridge was going to be unreliable. Was told, get no icemaker and top freezer. This one has no digital display for temperature--less computer = less possible problems. So I have gotten a bare bones model here bc I actually would like it to last a minimum of a decade.
This thing takes the same space (almost) as the old one and has the same lines so it pretty much blends with my other appliances but it's such a disappointment compared to what I used to have. But I accept that bc the other one was feces and rife with problems waiting to happen.
The fan in the freezer is LOUD--sometimes. It appears to be rattling at some points but sometimes it's quiet. If it weren't for the loudness of the fan, the fridge would be pretty quiet.
It looks ok. It's a little smaller than the other one. It's not cool (aesthetically) like the other one but it's ok.
I may call in a couple days and ask if there's anything they can do about the rattling. I might get used to it but right now (day 1) it's annoying.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MrsMarti Here is the truth: the good, the bad, & the so-so
We waited 13 days for our bisque colored GTH21GBEBCC refrigerator. Bought it sight unseen to replace our 16-year-old Kenmore branded Whirlpool model 106.67067791 [miss that fridge even more now that I have my GE].
The good parts of my GE: bisque is almost like the almond, just faintly lighter and has the nice textured front surface. The veggie/fruit crisper bins are evenly divided, it is an Energy Star appliance with an estimated $44./year to run, and it makes no more noise than my past Kenmore. Great. =)
The items I need to get used to: The doors are convex [curved outwardly]. The top of the freezer door is in an arch shapeâ3/8â higher in the middle than on either side. That is just enough so I canât see the top of the fridge. The fat door handles stick out more than my past Kenmore. Only 2 movable shelves and they slide partly out if wanted. The shelves are not as deep because they make the door shelves deeper. I have more shelf needs than door needs. Crazy design, as we are told to NOT store milk in the door, as it is the warmest part of a refrigerator.
Now for the frustrating, but these seem to be typical for fridges under $2,000: The fruit/veggie crispers are a bit more shallow than my Kenmore, hence hold less. And the BIG Grrrr: the shelves are made of clear plastic with bendy-plastic supports. No, there is NO strong glass and no metal support rod. This results in bowed shelves. [Iâm used to sturdier plastic and glass shelves]. Little Tikes toys are stronger. ;( The meat/deli/snack bin is on the shallow side and it does not slide out very far. The freezer rack is made of vinyl coated wimpy metal that bends/bows with any weight on it. There is NO freezer light. And, last but not least: Iâm having trouble getting correct coldness settings in the freezer and refrigerator. Two refrigerator thermometers are used to check this. I get 40F in the fridge and 5F in the freezer at setting #4-. At setting #4, I get 38F on one fridge shelf and 36F on the other [& frozen romaine], with 0F in the freezer. Although there is a separate dial in the freezer, if you turn it up a notch, the temperature drops in the refrigerator.
But again, these seem to be typical for fridges under $2,000. So, compared to the rest, it is no better or worse. Iâve listened to a number of my friends with similar disappointments in their refrigerators bought after 2006 to present--even having a 7 year old $2000. fridge die. How I miss my 16 year old Kenmore.
Yikes, so for the first time in my life I bought a 3 year warranty extension. They do not make them like they used to.
