Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

S Wall 7/11/2020

We needed a freezer really bad as where we are our fridge is really small. We were loping for a chest freezer to provide some longer term storage for our food. This is the perfect size and fits perfectly where we had room as space is limited. I am absolutely in love with this little freezer. My only complaint is it is a little on the load side when it hums to cool. We have gotten use to it now but it would be better if it was a little quieter.

Johnnyboy619 7/10/2020

The freezer is a nice size if you don't have a lot of room. It doesn't take a lot of power and it can be in your garage. Some freezers cannot. If you have a bit more room go for 7 cu ft. We didn't do this was perfect for us

Bang for My Buck

Voyageur 7/7/2020

So far, this freezer seems to be holding up to its value. It has ample capacity for frozen goods, and it's almost too quiet! It is also easy to roll across my floor when I'm cleaning. While this model doesn't have an automatic defroster, that doesn't seem to be a problem in a dry climate. I've already cleaned out the inside once, and not a drop came down through the drain hole because there was so little condensation to begin with. The primary drawbacks (and feedback to GE) are: (1) recessed handles are on the side of the door but not on the front; and (2) it only has one hanging basket (although it can fit three, and ought to come with three to make it more economical - it's a deep reach and takes a lot of shuffling to get to the bottom).

adamadamson 7/1/2020

We bought the freezer to increase our food storage. It is our first standalone freezer, and we worried about its capacity. The photos online don't do it justice, but the measurements are on target. It perfectly fit the space we measured, and is spacious on the inside. Great seal on the lid, and good temperature controls.

KimFischer 7/1/2020

I just installed the freezer today and it is already cooling nicely, however, it does not come with the metal cover for the compressor opening like my previous freezer did. There are screw holes around the opening so it is obviously meant to have the cover/grill to keep creatures from getting inside. I know have to go to the hardware store and get hardware cloth to attach to the opening. For this reason, I would not recommend to a friend as I would not want them to have to make a trip to the hardware store and spend more money.
