annoying whine

RDTB 3/30/2021

When the compressor reverts to energy-saving mode (that's what the service person called it) there is a very annoying pulsating high-pitched whine that penetrates through the whole house. He said that there is nothing that can be done about it.

Fast Pat 3/21/2021

Even though this refrigerator is one of the smaller models I love the way it is arranged! I didn't give it five stars because I think they still need to work on freezer section for it to hold more. Easy to keep clean and love the Slate!

Beautiful sleek fridge with plenty of room

MarisaDM 3/19/2021

I love that this fridge is a smaller size, but still has plenty of storage for food for me and my family of 5. We don't hoard food, and I shop weekly for produce, so the size suits our needs perfectly. The only downsides were that it makes a pretty loud humming noise, but I got used to it eventually. And the other issue was when we went to reverse the door swing (installers said they would have to charge us $100 to do it themselves), it scratched the finish when we removed the handle from the left to the right. The handle slides into place, and it's a tight fit, so there is no way to avoid it scratching. If you want to get the proper swing for your space, make sure they install it that way the first time.

I LOVE THIS FRIG!!!!

AK kitty 1/10/2021

This frig fits perfectly in the space that I have for it. It is misleading how much room it has. It's VERY spacious inside the frig. A deli drawer that moves, good sized slots for jugs of milk on the door. It's my first time having a frig on the top and I love it. Plus, the finish is so sleek and modern looking. If I have to move from my home, I will want to take the frig with me!!!

Hasn't worked since day1.

AB13 11/8/2020

I spent a considerable amount of time researching a refrigerator for my smal kitchen. I have space constraints and was unable to find a refrigerator with the preferred options. However, I thought I would be satisfied with this model and was excited to get it. Well, the Covid related delay was 4 months. And after enduring that delay, I received the appliance only to find that the refrigerator didn't cool at ALL. The freezer works but not the refrigerator. Had a GE repair person (and waited over a week to get him), and learned there's a faulty part. Guess what? Another delay getting it. It's now November and the refrigerator I ordered in May still isn't usable. Beyond dissatisfied.

The fridge is a little smaller in size but excellent for us. Love the ice maker on the inside because it offers more storage and bigger shelves. Ice makers on the exterior always have those small condiment size shelves. Love the gray tone color and how printless it is. I also love that I have an option of which side I want the handle on.
