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.

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.

JTL21162 11/25/2020

Kitsnkats 11/25/2020

This is the perfect freezer! I wanted it for my basement to provide extra food storage. It is small enough for our needs and large enough that I never have to worry about not having adequate space for food. I placed it on a furniture dolly to make it easy to move for cleaning underneath.

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.

JenMA 11/23/2020

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

Masum 11/19/2020

I like GE appliances. I have two Ge air conditioners (quite mode). So, this is my 3rd appliances from GE. My wife and me were waiting for few months. But may be for pandemic it was out of stock. Finally we got it. We are happy. Nice design and silent. Easy to install. Energy efficient like my GE air conditioners. According to their specifications annual energy cost $26. A little bit more than $2 per month. This is one of the main reason of choosing GE appliances. Thanks!

So far so good. This little freezer fits exactly what we needed. We wanted a compact chest freezer to store overflow groceries so we could make less trips to the store during the pandemic. It's awesome for those nights I don't feel like cooking I can just grab a frozen dinner. Loaded it with quick snacks and meals for the family. So convenient!

I haven't had it for long. It is nice and compact, fits in a small space in my garage. Keeps the food frozen. That's what it's supposed to do. I won't know how it functions in the summer heat for another 8 months. Hopefully it will last as long as the freezer at my old house. I had that for about 20 years and it was still running when I moved.

Pandemic freezer

Robert 19 11/17/2020

This was exactly what we were looking for. Just the right size for two people. We are now able to shop less for food and take advantage of the few sales we have seen on fresh and frozen food items. I was actually surprised to get one. I started looking for a small freezer when the pandemic started and finally got one six months later.
