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.

The two rails with baskets make organizing a breeze. Along with the customizable dividers in the bottom you know where the beef is compared to the pork and chicken. And this thing is huge!!

Fcm 22 Works well so far.

Johnny23418 4/3/2021

No problems. Removing the freezer lid to Removing lid and the electrical line that powers the light on the lid in order to get through a narrow door was a chore but doable. Had to unplug that electrical line down by the compressor. As far as reliability it's good after a few months, hopefully it lasts 20 years plus.

Bowed lid

Chad9751 3/5/2021

Overall freezer works very well. It is good looking and quiet. My problem is with the lid seal. The lid has a bow in the center not allowing it to seal. I have about 40 lbs of weight in the center of lid and is enough to now seal.

Lots of room but a lot is unusable as sold!

Cllaudial 3/1/2021

Pros: lots of room, the two levels of baskets plus bottom make easier retrieval of food, keeps good low temperatures. Cons: a lot of wasted space because only 5 baskets are included when 10 would fit in the two levels (VERY costly and unavailable extra baskets for sale by GE), very noisy start up of compressor

Does not seal

jwbiz 2/16/2021

I got it, plugged it in to use, and then noticed the lid was not sealing in the front. There is a big gap that goes across about 5 feet across the lid. A bummer because I waited 3 months for it, and it is no longer available to order. GE sent a third party appliance repairman to check it out, and he said there is no way to repair it. Super disappointed after waiting so long and spending the money.

charleskhenry 1/19/2021

Products is a good sale point for the cubic area. However, not all of the bins are included. You only get three Upper Baskets(P/N: WR71X28047) and two Lower Baskets (P/N: WR71X28049). So expect to spend about $200 more to get what you really want.

MichaelCassarSC 1/19/2021

Tremendous help in storing frozen foods for 18 months (6 months after warranty), likely issue lack of freon and unrepairable. Has not been moved since delivery, always kept lid closed, no damages inflicted. Would like to get a credit toward new one. Definitely buy extended warranty

It's Huge (well really big)

Datok 1/12/2021

We thought we wanted an upright freezer for easier access to the contents, but the 5 sliding sturdy tubs and customizable bottom dividers allow you to group similar items and make finding what you're looking for fast. Being a chest type freezer, when you open the lid all of the cold air doesn't run out.

Lid will not stay open

FMitch 1/6/2021

Bought our freezer in August, 2022. After a couple months the lid would not stay open on it's own. Contacted GE and they set me up with a local appliance repair business. The tech came out and said it needed new hinges. New hinges were ordered which took a long time. Finally yesterday the repair man came to my house and installed new hinges. After installing the new hinges the lid STILL would not say open. He said he would have to research the problem and get back to us. I read some other reviews and other people are having the same problem.

dark eyes 2 1/1/2021

The freezer is great but we have a problem with an air leak at the back of the lid which is causing ice buildup on the edge of the top baskets. The freezer reached operating temp quickly after plugging in. Love the size and features. Tech did come to examine lid and is ordering a new gasket to see if that corrects the problem.

Terrible design

ThreeHandsInNH 12/28/2020

Are you skilled in the art of placing a 30# turkey in the bottom of your chest freezer, with only 1 hand? How about retrieving that same turkey, with only 1 hand? If so, this is the freezer for you! If not, be prepared to have a second person available to hold the lid open for you - it does not stay open on it's own. I called GE within minutes of the delivery truck leaving, where a kind woman agreed with my assessment of "that doesn't sound right". She scheduled a 3rd party tech to come to my house a few days later (no GE reps nearby, so 3rd party it was). The tech called me the next day to discuss the problem, and he also agreed things didn't sound right. I used a day of vacation leave to be home for the tech, who arrived on time and was very courteous. He came in, opened the lid, let it go, and watched it SLAM shut. He examined the hinges, and finding no way to adjust them, called GE to order new hinges. He spent 30 minutes on the phone with GE, and was ultimately told that it was not a "defect" but a "feature", and that the hinges weren't supposed to hold the lid up. Wrote on the work order "works as intended, per GE" and left. So I have a chest freezer, that cost me over a thousand dollars, which requires two people to add or remove food, or requires the use of a wooden 2x4 kickstand, with a lid that will probably knock a person out cold, if it slams down on them while they're bent over in the freezer. So GE - if this honest review costs you sales and reputation - just remember, that's a value added "feature" of my review.

kathyrb731 12/23/2020

The biggest issue I have with this freezer is the door. It doesn't little to stay open. I either have to prop something in it to keep it open or hold it open myself. Which makes it hard when trying to load it or work in it. I have only had it several weeks so, I haven't had much time to try it out but, the door is the biggest issue.

Love the Baskets

Peaches2020 12/23/2020

The freezer arrived in great shape and has been running perfectly ever since. It is large to look at, but is smaller on the inside, due to rather thick insulation - which is great for a Garage Ready Freezer. It has two levels of sliding baskets, which helps enormously in organizing the freezer. It also comes with inserts for the bottom of the freezer to help in organizing the bottom of the freezer as well. All in all, I think this freezer should be a good friend for many years to come.

Freezer questionable good customer service so far.

Andrew Tugboat 12/12/2020

It took 3 months to get the freezer because of COVID. When it arrived the freezer alarm would not stop going off even when the freezer dropped to temperature. GE was great and offered to replace the freezer or have the alarm fixed- I chose to have the freezer replaced. I continued to use the new freezer with the alarm problem while I waited the delivery of the replacement. New freezer was ready to be delivered about a week later but I was out of town and they had no problem waiting for my return 2 weeks later. The new freezer arrived and so far so good. Nice unit with all the baskets and dividers you need. Please note these are made China - which I did not know when I ordered. Now that I have the second one running I believe there was also something wrong with the thermostat on the first one. Temperature setting on 2nd one set mid dial it is running just at zero degrees - first one it was running at minus 30 with the same dial setting.
