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.

Great simple freezer

Thom62 4/17/2022

Simple adequate freezer that takes the pressure off of the small freezer unit on the refrigerator/freezer. When there's a sale I can now purchase a few more items for the freezer.

Great Small Chest Freezer!

KelleeM 4/15/2022

We recently found a need for additional freezer space and began researching our options. This five cubic feet model meets our needs perfectly. We have it in our basement for easy year round access, and it adds just the right amount of additional freezer capacity for us. We no longer have to worry about room for stocking up on frozen items. Highly recommend this model for one or two person households!

Perfect size for me

Hneely 3/5/2022

I had a large upright freezer for 31 years before it was no longer repairable and I bought this freezer because it is smaller and I needed less freezer space than before. It is the perfect size for my needs and was at a price that was reasonable.

Works well after 2 months

Matt12543246 2/26/2022

Freezer works well, holding at -10 deg. F At medium setting. We got this because our fridge freezer stopped working at below freezing ambient temperatures. It appears that this freezer is working to 0 deg F ambient temperatures as stated on their product specs. Minimal frost buildup but definitely has some.

Great small freezer

lindsdar 1/13/2022

Bought this as a second freezer for my apartment. Fits right inside my kitchen nicely and isn't noisy at all. I like that it has a power light on it so I can ensure it's working. Popped a thermometer in there once it got loaded with food and the bottom/middle reads -3 while the top near the basket reads 5. I have it on the 4th setting, so we will probably turn it up a bit, but everything is frozen! Works great.

TheFreezerFreak 1/11/2022

This freezer does what it is supposed to do... keep the food frozen! It is also energy efficient and came at a good price from a local appliance store - so I was able to support small business and can be assured of good service if and when I need it.

Nice Freezer But Does Not Have Rear Shutter Panel

Dale505 12/13/2021

Our freezer like so many others people's freezer arrived with an open space in the back with screw holes that would indicate there was a panel that was missing. Several other people have written that they also did not have a rear panel. We called GE and after a lot of work, they sent us a rear shutter panel that is nearly twice as large as it is supposed to be. There is no way it would work. GE then said there is no panel. If there is no panel, why would they drill holes for a panel or why would they leave it open--especially for a "garage ready" freezer. The opening for the 5 cu. ft. freezer is 7 1/4" H x 6 3/4" W. The part that GE sent is probably for a 15.7 cu. ft. freezer. The shutter GE sent is 8 1/4" x 14 1/4" W. Way too big, but that is also the size of the shutter that GE shows on their site. Someone made a huge mistake. Overall, it is pathetic.

Perfect in every way!

JA 63 12/11/2021

We needed an additional freezer, but only had room on our garage. We found out fast that there a only a few freezer's that can be used in a garage due to low temperatures in the winter. Our garage stay's in the mid 40's during the coldest time in winter. So this is the perfect unit for us. We found this little compact, yet roomy freezer that needs very little room, uses little power and can run from my solar power station that I built. With my panels and batteries, this freezer can run indefintiely without grid power. Thanks to its 80W draw when running, the cycles are short, the insulation is crazy thick and it is made to be highly efficient. We are super happy with this freeezer. It is a great value for the price and will do us well for many years to come.

right freezer for us

_Bud 11/30/2021

We needed a small freezer and liked the GE name. It was light weight to get into our basement and small enough to fit into our furnace room. There was no wire mesh covering the large opening on the back of the unit where the compressor was. Probably done to save GE money but it would be nice to be able to block out mice.
