    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.

    Frowning Lid Upon Delivery

    BeeKeeper14 7/14/2022

    After waiting weeks for this freezer it was delivered with a lid that would not seal. It appeared to be frowning at me. I am currently waiting for a brand new lid, my appointment is tomorrow, although I have not received a (separately shipped) replacement lid. Other notes are that it has no leveling feet or capability which I think is important for a freezer this size. The extension cord is rather short also. I do believe I am going to enjoy this once it is right. G.E. Saving grace is the service tech they sent me (#127), who was amazing. Old school repair customer service.

    We recently replaced our old freezer with this one. It has awesome dividers and storage trays. It really helps organize everything, especially when you get a full steer butchered!

    The double layer baskets and dividers make having a chest freezer the best option. Extremely energy efficient, handy features to monitor the performance of the freezer made this purchase a no-brainier.

    On 2nd freezer now. 1st lasted 14 months

    Bgallagher 7/5/2022

    On my 2nd freezer now, 1st one worked great until it randomly stopped working, high temp alarm came on (thank god). 14 months out so 2 months out of warranty. Thankfully the state of Maine has a lemon law so G.E had to honor this mishap since the life expectancy of this machine is surely not 14 months. Would be getting a 1 star but G.E had a new freezer in my garage within a week. Great customer service once they laws were understood. Would I buy a freezer from G.E again probably not. But this mind could change depending on how the 2nd deep freeze lasts.

    Solid build

    RichNolt 7/1/2022

    The unit is very rigid and the door and hinges appears well built. These were weak points on my prior Fridgidaire model. The inside basket rails are a bit less rugged than what I envisioned from the information provided online. Hopefully they will be adequate. Awesome to have option of 5 baskets and two different levels for the baskets.

    Lacey J 6/21/2022

    This freezer is so big I can fit 2.5 pigs in it. LOL we are hog farmers and those small traditional freezers are so hard to organize. But with this freezer I can have everything labeled and put in proper order. There are baskets included for any item I use regularly for quick grab meals. This is perfect

    What a freezer !!

    Surferpete 5/2/2022

    This freezer was everything I hoped for. I recently completed a several month endeavor of raising a Black Angus steer, and splitting the cost and yield with my brothers. This freezer was imperative in being able to store and allocate a Full "dressed" steer so that we were able to keep all our products organized. Not to mention it keeps Ice cream free of freezer burn despite sometimes being in the freezer for a few weeks. I love my GE cabinet freezer. The cost seems to be about $16.00 per month to run….well worth the cost of about $0.53 / day to run !!

    Installed today without difficulty. Easy to load, I especially like the dividers sent with the freezer for separating foods on the floor of the freezer. As I wasn't aware that they were coming with the unit, I made good use of them when loading my foods. Looking forward to a no problem future with this freezer.

    A very top quality appliance!

    Cody Cook 11/19/2021

    This is great product. It works properly like it specifies. I really like the heavy duty trays that slide for optimal storage and access to the entire freezer. This is also an Energy Star appliance so yearly energy costs are minimal. I previously purchased a Criterion chest freezer from Menards because it was on sale and in stock but it lasted 3 months and quit working. I decided to go with a reputable brand name appliance this time and will never buy an appliance from Menards again.

    Slight Amount of Frost on Rear Seal

    Steve529 11/16/2021

    The freezer works, well, is quiet, and holds an amount of food that I expected. The slight ding of my review is the frost deposits on the center of the rear seal

    Lid won't stay open

    Mogulmasher 11/8/2021

    After a few months the lid won't stay up. Hinges are non adjustable and require replacement but that doesn't seem to help for long.

    Door will not stay open

    Gregorovich 11/4/2021

    I do not have a problem with it other than the door; it may be a good product but the door will not stay open comes down on my head when I'm looking for things I had a service technician out to look at it and they said the four hinges need to be replaced I don't think that's the problem I think there should be an adjustment on the hinges you can tighten to keep the door open , so now they're going to have to come out and put on new hinges and I don't think it's going to fix it they also said it was because it was out of level but I think it is pretty level and I think the hinges are just not strong enough for this door

    We love all to room that we have to store our food

    Reecer 10/31/2021

    As of right now we like it, but we will see in the future how long this one will last. It seem like the ones that was made in the passed lasted for years and years and years, and now in these times 5 to 10 years is the life of a appliance.

    Excellent Freezer

    Joe221 10/29/2021

    This freezer is excellent. It's exactly what I was looking for. It has plenty of room, sliding trays, a nice LED light and it only took about 2 hours for the temperature to adjust to 0°.

    Right Size

    Stampguy 10/22/2021

    The freezer has the features we were looking for, including the 2 rows of baskets which makes it easier to separate everything inside.
