Is this refrigerator still available , or is it discontinued?

Asked by Steph May 9, 2020

Hello Steph - Thank you for your interest in this refrigerator. Model GTS21FMKES recently stopped manufacturing. We recommend reaching out to your local Home Depot to see if they still have some in stock. Thanks. - JB

Too many conflicting opinions on the noise. Do companies provide refrigerator's DB's?

Asked by Earnie February 10, 2020

Hi Earnie - Thanks for considering GE! We do not rate the sound level of our refrigerators or freezers, which means we are unable to provide a decibel level while they are running. Our refrigerators continue to be made with as quiet and operation as possible. Installation (built-in, free-standing), floor type (wood, tile, carpet) and room acoustic can all affect the sounds you may hear so reviews may vary. Play Video: - Keep in touch at Sue

How much weight can the glass shelves and plastic shelves in the door take?? Thanks!

Asked by Judy January 16, 2020

Hi Judy - Thanks for considering Model # GTS21FMKES! The refrigerator door shelves/bins have been tested to handle 70 lbs. and the freezer doors 26 lbs. Refrigerator shelves are tested for 35 pounds per square foot. These shelves should not exceed 50 pounds total weight for a full width shelf. These same limitations hold true for glass and plastic vegetable bin covers. An example of the weight of an average refrigerator item would be a gallon container. It weighs 8 pounds, and a full width shelf can hold 6 of them. A quart container weighs 2 pounds, and a full width shelf can hold 24. We hope this is helpful. Keep in touch at Sue

Is this model noisy

Asked by Barbara January 8, 2020

Hi Barbara -Thanks for your interest in Model # GTS21FGKBB! Our refrigerators continue to be manufactured with as quiet an operation as possible. We realize the kitchen is a popular gathering place. When the surrounding noise level is low, you may hear a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound while it is operating. The new high efficiency compressor may run faster and longer than your old refrigerator. The type of installation (built-in or freestanding), floor type (wood, tile, carpet) and room acoustics can all affect the normal operating sounds that you may hear. This model has a high rating (4.3 out of 5 Stars) and we hope you are as pleased with your choice. Keep in touch at Sue

Need bottom drawer replacement - GE says out of stock.

Asked by Mike January 3, 2020

Please keep in touch with our GE Appliances Parts Team for availability at 1-877-959-8688, Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm, Sat 8:30am-5pm ET or (Contact Us). Sue

This refrigerator does not come with a meat/cheese pull out tray?

Asked by Lou December 23, 2019

it does not come with the pull out tray. We just took the tray from the old refrig and sit it on the shelf and it actually works as good if not better then when it was a slide out tray.

Can you operate at freezing outdoor temps in a garage?

Asked by Beano December 13, 2019

Hi Beano - We recommend not to use the refrigerator in unheated locations, such as garages, porches, or unheated rooms where the temperature is likely to fall below 60 degrees Fahrenheit or above 110 degrees Fahrenheit (After-market garage kits or heater kits should not be used). The refrigerator may not work properly, and there is a possibility that some harm could come to the compressor or sealed system by operating the refrigerator at temperature extremes. Below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the oil could become thick and not circulate properly. Above 110 degrees Fahrenheit, the oil could overheat and break down. Thanks for viewing GE! Sue

Can this refrigerator be kept in a non heated garage?

Asked by SAAD December 7, 2019

Hi there, Based on our research we are finding that this unit can be installed in a garage. However, there are a few stipulations that you need to be aware of. You can find that information on pg. 9 of the unit's installation instructions, here: - We hope that this helped! Thank you so much for your question. -Michael

Keep everything very cold.
Customer review from logo
Awesome freezer. Everything stay cold and fresh in the fridge. Size is to small for my household of 8. Glass tables are very weak and bend with only a gallon of milk, juice, soda on it have to put heavy items on the side and light items in the middle. I would definitely recommend making the tables stronger!

Basic Refrigerator with 1 Big Flaw
Customer review from logo
This is a basic freezer over refrigerator model. It has a large capacity freezer as well as refrigerator. Its relatively quiet and functional with one major flaw. The clear lid to the butter compartment at top of door does not close with gravity and will not clear the top of the refrigerator if open and the refrigerator door closes. I found this out the hard way when I forgot the close it and it instantly cracked in half. I had only owned the refrigerator for 4 month. This is a design flaw that tarnishes what is otherwise could be a good refrigerator. I can't recommend this to any buyer.

Consistent Quality
Customer review from logo
With a major remodel of my small kitchen new appliances were required. As I was very pleased with my 29 year-old GE appliances I decided to look to the same manufacture. That said I completed research on all brands and discovered that only GE makes a fridge that fit in my confined space and as it stands next to the dishwasher I wanted the same brand. I am pleased with both but wish the new fridge had a deli drawer. Also, my old appliances were sold and continue to work well in their new homes which demonstrates the quality of GE appliances.
