        Q:What is the decibel level of this product?
        by|Feb 3, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi there - We appreciate your interest in our beautiful refrigerator. We do not rate the sound level of our refrigerators, which means we are unable to provide a decibel level for while they are running. Newer refrigerators sound different from older refrigerators. Sounds you may hear are described on page 32 of the owner's manual here: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/ce/ce21b980-29c1-426f-91fc-ba4c843ec5d6.pdf. -- We hope this helps! We're always here if you need anything. Take care, Shayla@GEA

          Very pleased!
          After having a very large size French door fridge that came with the house, this counter depth side by side GE is perfect! It fits perfectly into the small space and no more bulky fridge that overextends way beyond the counter. There’s quite a bit of room to accommodate the two of us. We had to do some adjustments at the front wheel base to get it to stand straight, which was no big deal at all. This is day one of having the fridge. So far, we are very happy with it.

            This refrigerator is very good right size it holds the right amount of things that I need it for not too big yet not too small. Color is nice does not leave any finger prints. Easy to clean, I would definitely recommend it.

              Great Refrigerator
              Our new refrigerator is a perfect fit for our new home. We went with the counter depth unit and it fits perfectly.

                Good value for the money
                I needed to replace my former refrigerator. This was the only one that fit our space. I would’ve liked a bigger one, but we’ve been able to fit everything in that we need. I love the LED lights inside. I’m very fond of a side-by-side. I don’t like the bottom drawer refrigerator where all the frozen foods are stacked on top of each other. the installers were able to level it easily, and the icemaker and water dispenser works well.

                  Great features for our space
                  We had a certain size restriction and this model & brand was the ONLY one that met those needs and also what we wanted in our new refrigerator. We replaced a 25 yr old refrigerator with this GE model

                    Perfect for our kitchen
                    Perfect fit and goes with all of our appliances. Love our kitchen!

                        Yeah more Space!
                        We liked that this refrigerator has more cubic feet than other counter depth refrigerators. It also has 3 drawers.

                          Roomy New Side by Side
                          We really enjoy the space, very well lit, Humidity drawer and water/ice dispenser in this unit. Love the add’l small shelf above the ice maker we use it for our 2 ice cremes! Would be absolute perfection if GE went back to 4 freezer “baskets” instead of 2 plus 2 flat glass “shelves” in their units. But all in all we love our new Counter Depth Side by Side. It replaced a 10 yr old GE Profile side by side.

                            We love our new GE fridge
                            Our new GE fridge is quite, keeps our food cool, and the items in the freezer, frozen. A bonus is the water on the front and the ice maker. Overall, 5 stars!
