Opinions differ on how much noise a GE refrigerator makes. A number of customers on Amazon.com and Consumer Affairs identify noise as a problem with their GE refrigerator. Other customers fail to mention noise in their lukewarm to positive reviews, suggesting these GE refrigerators are not overly noisy.
Customers who mention the noise vary widely in their description of the problem. One reviewer on Customer Affairs gives her GE refrigerator a one-star rating because her fan motor ran so loud she could not be in the same room. An Amazon.com reviewer reports a similar issue but also reports that her GE refrigerator runs quiet after she fixed the problem herself. GE refrigerators, like all refrigerators, normally make noise during normal operation, including clicking, dripping and buzzing.
