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.

I ever since I was a little boy, I always hear that GE is the best brand buy. Therefore, I stick to that brand and GE last long. And easy to find parts if there is a problem. Yes, I would recommend a friend.

The unit is very quiet and has has a lot of room

I do not want to use 12/3/2020

I have the unit about 4 weeks now, it is very quiet and so far so good, I have not had any issues with it and it is larger then expected and will work great for our household of two. I do think they should add an extra basket to the unit so you have two. The freezer is deep and it would be nice to have two baskets for quick access. I did look in to getting an additional basket, but the only one I could find that would fit the unit, is sold by GE and they want $79 for it. That is crazy for this small basket, plus it is out of stock and you can't even get it if you should want to buy a 2nd basket. All in all I am happy with it and hopefully will continue to work without any issues.

Kvothe 12/3/2020

This is the perfect size for a small family. Enough room to load it with anything you need. A light would be nice so you can see in the bottom better but it's not a dealbreaker.

Good price. Simple operation

RJB39 12/2/2020

Bought at local appliance dealer, not a big box store. Good price. Easy to set up, I put in garage. Set temp control to middle setting on dial. Buy a good quality freezer thermometer as this freezer has no thermometer built-in. Freezer gas good capacity. Lightweight, easy to move. I left it on the styrofoam packing bottom base so as to get it up an inch off garage deck. After one month, working well so far.

Perfect Size Freezer

SMVRO 11/30/2020

This is the perfect size freezer. It is exactly the right size for overflow from our kitchen freezer or for stocking up on extra items for winter or holiday company year round. It is fairly easy to move and surprisingly my husband and I carried it down to our basement with very little trouble. We have only had it a few weeks but it is working perfectly!

kc9981 11/30/2020

It keeps my food frozen. There's also a knob to adjust how frozen I want my food to be and a drain plug at the bottom for defrosting. The lid is easy to open and there's a nice little bin/rack for smaller items. The only thing that would make it better would be more bins/racks for organizing, but otherwise it was a good purchase (provided it continues to work).

This freezer was exactly what I was looking for. Purchasing was easy to do online. The installation and delivery was set quickly. On the day of the installation date, I had a window of time that the install would happen and received a 30 minute heads up via text message that the delivery was on the way. Install, set up and packaging trash all taken care of. Love it!

Very Efficient

FLForester 11/25/2020

We replaced a 40 year old freezer with this model. It is in our Florida garage and the garage is darn hot in summer afternoons. The freezer is set close to the lowest setting there is and the freezer temp is stays about 6 or 7 degrees. We fully expected having to bump up the setting to compensate for the hot exterior conditions. In addition, the unit itself is so much lighter than our old one. Overall, we are very pleased with the purchase. We probably should have done it years ago.

Ideal Solution for Extra Freezer Space

arbon 11/23/2020

We needed extra space to store frozen food and this was a great solution at a reasonable price. I wanted a product that could be installed outside the main house because I live in a small unit and at the same time, could withstand cold temperature in winter. This is designed to be fully functional at a temperature of down to 0F.

We were looking for a small footprint food storage solution and found this model. It is very quiet, and holds more than I thought it would. We've had it up and running for almost a month and there is only a tiny amount of frost around the very top inside edge so don't anticipate frequent/extensive defrosting. Very happy with this freezer.

Dead on arrival...

LoninNC 11/22/2020

After reading reviews about this GE freezer, I decided it was just what I needed. Was a two week wait and I was fine with that. It was delivered on Saturday, Nov. 21st and the delivery people set it up and plugged it in. They advised to wait two hours to make sure it was working properly by putting a bottle of water in it, to know when it was freezing... Done! Two and a half hours later the freezer was 50 degrees inside. Same thing 4,6, and 8 hours later. Fifty degrees inside the freezer. I turned the freezer from three quarters max to full max and left it there over night. This morning, Sunday, Nov. 22, almost 24 hours later, it's 46 degrees in my garage but 50 degrees inside the freezer. It's defective and doesn't cool. I only have 48 hours to report the defective freezer and the 800-455-3869 isn't open on Sundays!

Exactly What Was Expected

Bill Rip 11/21/2020

So far the freezer is everything we expected. Only concern was when we unpacked we saw what we thought was a missing plate where the power cord comes out. Turns out this was meant to stay uncovered. It would have been useful to warn your customers as there are screen holes around the area implying a plate would go there
