I love how this refrigerator looks and performs. It holds the temperature consistently and seems to be very well/solidly made. My only problem is that it's noisier than I expected it to be. The freezer fan motor makes an audible sound that is just loud enough to be really annoying. I fixed the problem by stuffing towels between the back of the refrigerator and the wall. That dampened the sound down to an acceptable/quiet level. Now that the sound problem is fixed I LOVE this refrigerator. I didn't need an expensive refrigerator with a lot of bells and whistles. This is a simple model that suits my needs perfectly.

Before the one yr warranty ended called for service because of ice build up in the fridge and grinding noise. When service took off the back panel in the freezer, it was a sheet of ice. The evaporator motor was replaced. So felt I had to buy a 4 yr warranty for $129. Yr 2 and even now has "hot spots" - put 2 water bottles in freezer over night, one gets frozen and the other does not. Also was making popping noises. Service installed a sound damper. Service person said you get what you pay for, but it was the only one that would fit in my kitchen space. Had my previous GE fridge for over 25 yrs and NO problems. Only reason for getting the new one was for the Energy Savings,

from Northern California
This is a great product. It does what it's supposed to do....keep my food chilled or frozen. It's very economical to operate even though I don't think it's an Energy Star model. My electric bill is less than when I had my inefficient one. This model is smaller than the old one I had but I have easily adjusted. It still holds a lot of food both fresh and frozen. As described in the manual, this model made a little noise during operation. That was true only in the beginning of use. After some months it runs completely silent. No complaints at all about anything. Well, there is one small thing that is a pain. Due to the automatic defrosting, it's impossible to keep ice cubes. It seems that during the defrost operation it vaporizes the cubes so I must remember to check and refill if I want ice cubes on demand. As I said, it's a pain but I have adjusted. I don't think there is anything that could be done in the operation to alter this vaporizing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very pleased with this frig!
from Twin Falls, ID, United States
I researched approximately 10 models online and in local stores. I am pleased with every aspect of this product, which replaced my 27-year old refrigerator.
Just right size.
from Honolulu, Hawaii, United States
Not too big and not too small. Fits in the space I have. Unit would be perfect if it had a seperate temperature control for the freezer.
Great size. Small footprint. Energy efficient
from Middleton WI
Bought it yesterday. Purrs gently. Just the basic but great energy efficient value.
from Philadelphia, PA, United States
I purchased this model a month ago and so far so good. It is small yet holds a lot!
from IA, United States
Have had it 11 months. The door seal is crimped & doesn't seal tightly, the nylon/plastic/silicon bushing in the door mount have become misshapen & cause the door to sag, & items on the top shelf will partially freeze (most likely due to the lack of a good door seal).
great buy! very happy, except
from West Bend, WI, United States
i bought this unit 2 months and am very happy. lots of space. the only downfall is the ice maker is factory installed and it doesn't have an automatic shut off sensor when the ice tray is full. so make sure it has one or else turn it off when the tray is full.
Compact yet spacious
from Fair Play, CA, United States
I just had the refrigerator delivered and installed thsi evening. It has a smaller foorprint than our previous refrgerator but conveniently stores everything tha we had in the previous model
Good value for basic features
from West Lafayette, IN, United States
Modern energy efficiency with good design and flexible internal shelf configuration. Moderate ice-making rate of small cubes.
