Summary: I read so many reviews on GE refrigerators and people complaining that they are noisy, obviously any refrigerator is noisy as they have a compressor and that noise can't be helped. I was a GE technician for ten years and in my estimation they are the best. I recently bought one very similar to this model with the same compressor and it's great! It is the bottom of the line refrigerator and I paid less than $350 for it at Brandsmart.
Summary: We bought this as a garage frig about 2 years ago. The delivery men were super nice by the way. It works great. It is plain with no frills and that was what we needed. No ice maker means the freezer holds a lot. I store a lot of drinks in the bottom and have to be careful where I put cases of water and soda because the shelves can't take slamming things in there. They will fall. If you take your time....it holds all though and I do put a lot of strain on them.
Summary: We're all trying to save a buck these days. Sometimes it's worth it, and sometimes, well . . . you buy a Hotpoint refrigerator. Principle gripes are, first, that this fridge is NOISY. Is it so loud that it's useless? No, but it's louder than any refrigerator I have ever heard, and it's certainly annoying. Another irritant is that when you close the refrigerator, the freezer pops open.
Summary: Very loud fan noise. The fan on this refrig. is about as loud as a bathroom exhaust fan. I've never heard a new refrig with such a loud fan. The draws don't slide real smoothly. On the positive side, the shelves are good, lots of room inside for tall containers, and the price is good for basic (but noisy) refrigerator.
Summary: The refrigerator is well organized. It has very large vegetable and fruit bins which is great since we try to eat more fresh produce. The plastic shelves are easy to clean and adjustable. My husband gets annoyed with the uneven whirring noise it makes at times but it is far from being as loud as our old refrigerator was. I particularly like the size of the freezer and it's inside light.
Pros: Whining noise when it cycles, not real loud but very annoying when eating at dinner table.
Cons: Whining noise when it cycles, not real loud but very annoying when eating at dinner table.
