The coils are fully enclosed (and on the bottom, I think). And to me it is quiet. It has to have a few sounds but they are much toned down compared to my old refrigerator. Anytime you have a self-defrost you have to have a little more noise on occasion than just a hum. I think it's quite acceptable and discrete.

The back is covered by a heavy fiber/cardboard backing. No coils are visible. The refrigerator is quiet. It's in my basement so I don't hear it unless I'm standing next to it. No louder than my side-by-side GE on the main floor.

Hello Fred,

This is Donna with GE and I will be happy to help you with your question on the GE 16.5 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator model # GTH17DBCBB.

This refrigerator has a coil free back and offers the Deluxe Quiet Design. GE refrigerators have been designed to ensure a quiet performance. Insulation, fan designs, variable fan speeds and compressors all contribute to the quiet operation.

It is not just a couple of things that make them different. The total design of the product is what affects the noise level. If you were to put a Deluxe and a Premium refrigerator in the same room, you will hear a noticeable difference. The Premium will be noticeably quieter.

I hope this helps. Thank you for your interest in GE!

It's about 28 in. wide by 64.5 in. high. The depth is between 29 in. and 32 in. depending on whether you count the handles and how you set the legs (it seems to tilt back more than I'd like so it doesn't butt against the back wall snugly.) You can get all the specs online.

You will also need to allow for the necessary air clearance. You'll need 2 inches behind the refrigerator, 3/4" on each side and 1 inch on the top. Thanks for your interest in our appliances!
