We have a GE 15.5 Cu Ft Refrigerator. GTS 16 DTHBRWW. Maybe.

We have a GE...

We have a GE 15.5 Cu Ft Refrigerator

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

GTS 16 DTHBRWW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Maybe. Depends how tough it is. This is a 15.5 Cu Ft Fridge and it is making an unusual amount of noise in the freezer compartment. Is this serious or just the way these refrigerators are after a few years ???

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The Fridge works OK. Keeps everything cold but the freezer compartment area seems to be making 'noise' - and it's coming from the white grill - where the cold air blows out from.

No Frost. Everything seems OK. Just a little noisy when the Fridge is operating - blowing cold air into the freezer compartment.
