GE White Top-Freezer Refrigerator, Model GTH17JBWH

This GE GTH17JBDWW top freezer refrigerator is a great addition to any kitchen. With a total interior capacity of 16.5 cubic feet and 21.1 square feet of shelf area, you will have plenty of room to store your perishable food. The fresh food compartment itself holds 12.43 cubic feet of deliciousness while the freezer has a hefty 4.07 cubic feet of storage space. The beautiful white color and reversible door design helps to ensure that this wonderful fridge will fit in with any kitchen decor or design and look good at the same time.

The crisper drawers in the GTH17JBDWW come with humidity controls to help keep your fresh produce remaining as fresh as possible for as long as possible. This free standing refrigerator also comes with a clear snack drawer and a door that can easily handle storing a gallon of milk or water. The large glass shelves have raised edges, making them spill proof so that any accidents in the refrigerator don't end up all over the other shelves or your floor, and the incandescent light brightens the interior.

The GTH17JBDWW's freezer is easy to clean, with a simple wipe up being all that is needed to take care of most spills in the spill proof freezer door. The freezer contains a study wire step shelf, helping to organize and provide additional storage space for your frozen goodies. Best of all, the freezer is frost free. An optional ice maker kit is available to ensure that you are always supplied with fresh cubes of ice for cooling drinks.

This GE free standing refrigerator is a model of energy efficiency, using a mere 324 kilowatt hours per year. Controlling the temperature is a snap as well, with easily accessible upfront temperature controls that adjust with a simple knob turn.

I'm using ths refrigerator in a small kitchen and was the only unit with glass shevles that sould fit into the space. It is very quiet when running. The glass shelves are extermely functional. The storage is well thought out and the unit is an asset to the room. This unit is no longer being manufactured by GE and the model that replaces it is not as energy efficient.

I am very very disappointed in my refrigerator. It is the noisiest one I have ever owned. It sounds like it is going break at any moment and I have only had it since June 2012. I called the store that I purchased it from within the first week I had it. They sent a service man to take a look at it and upon hearing the noise, he said that there was nothing he could do to make the noise go away. He explained that because it was small, there wasn't much space to insulate for the sound to be muffled, I would just have to live with it. He tried doing something in the back of it, but the sound was as loud as ever. I have owned alot of GE Appliances, but this surely will be the last one that I buy. Shame on GE for putting such a noisy appliance out for people to buy!! It could be a good appliance, but not with this noise factor! If by chance, this refrigerator isn't suppose to be making loud and screeching sounds, maybe this one is a "lemon" and should be replaced, I would hope that you would get in touch with me.

Best in this size class

By Bookcase

from Undisclosed

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

I needed a certain height to fit my old kitchen, and this was the best of the choices. It was the only unit to offer glass shelves, which was a big plus. The freezer is quite large. Like many other reviewers noted, the compressor motor is quite loud. Maybe I'll get used to that. The door has a lot of storage, and the meat drawer and clear butter door are nice touches.

fits my needs

By LuckyLucy

from Wisconsin

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

Just the right size for me but a bit to noisy when it runs. At first it was really noisy but was told that it was normal and that has been reduced but you sure can hear it run. Maybe I am not giving it enough time to work itself ouit.

This could use a shelf

By Joanie21

from Southgate, MI

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

I needed to replace my old GE refrigerator which I loved, but because of my limited space, I had to go with a smaller model. I think in this model they could have done better by installing a shelf in the freezer area and by adding another shelf on the bottom of the door.

Cheap. Obnoxiously LOUD

By Ann94556

from CA

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

What a horrible product. Seriously GE? What an American made embarrassment. I can hear this awful machine three rooms away. This appliance is so loud and so disruptive. I had an old refrigerator from the 80s that was significantly quieter than this thing. Do NOT buy this, unless like another poster stated, you want a 747 in your home. That's it for GE for me. These days they're churning out all things cheap apparently.

Do not bother

By Hiker

from Durango, CO, USA

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

I purchased this item in November of 2012, and I have already traded it in. The noise level was loud at first. but within days it developed a loud moan and whine. My selling dealer was gracious and traded me out of it, but not for another GE product.

Only down side is how loud the motor is when running.

By Beck65

from Seattle

Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

I like this refrigerator. The only down side is how loud the motor is when running. It does have lots of space and the door shelves can hold a lot of stuff.

    I returned the original model I bought because it had wire shelves and the fruit/veg bin was opaque. This is a MUCH better option, on sale, for the same price.

      Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

      The interior design could be better; for example, there is no shelf space beside the butter compartment...just wall. The shelf options are limited. This size is just too small. My old refrigerator was slightly larger (not available now) and had much more storage flexibility.

      Better than I expected

      By Sally1

      from Oshkosh, WI, USA

      Comments about GE GTH17JBXWW 16.6 Cu Ft Top-Freezer White Refrigerator:

      I looked for an 18 cubic foot refrig to replace my 14 yr. old one, but found that now 18 foot refrigs are made taller and would not fit in the restricted space available in my kitchen. I became a bit discouraged after looking at many smaller refrigs, thinking I would never get one to compare with my old larger one. However, the manager of a local appliance store suggested this GE 16.5 cubic foot one, so I ordered it even though some of the reviews I read were somewhat negative, especially about a noise problem. I was also concerned about going to a smaller size. I am pleased to report that my new refrig is not noisy and I have ample space. It fits perfectly and I am very happy with it.
