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. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

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 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.

Excellent large capacity freezer

riley216 12/27/2020

Freezer was installed in an attached garage where temperatures may see single digits but hopefully not below 0F. Width is nearly 65", 18" wider than similar freezers so plan accordingly. Not as deep or tall as our current freezer of similar capacity although the inconvenience remains for lost/buried items at the bottom. Taller folks such as us may find it easier to dig around in the freezer by raising it with proper support in place. Will need to devise an organization system. Temperature control conveniently located in front. Fan is in the rear where it is less likely to be obstructed. Electrical plug with 3-prong is straight, not the wall-hugging type that can interfere with use of the other outlet so be sure there is room behind the freezer so the plug does not bind. Lid is a bit heavy but forms a good seal for efficient operation. Cools quickly to 0F at setting 4. The manual defrost is not an issue for us. Baskets are deep enough to store item for quick access.

Noneyanone 12/24/2020

The freezer itself works great. The lock on it is less than desirable. It is very cheaply made an I cannot lock it. The key is a piece of plastic, broke one trying to lock the door but it just won't lock.

Very Nice Freezer

Retnavysailor 12/18/2020

Although, we have only had this massive freezer for two days it is very big measuring 65" long with an inside depth of 28.5" deep and a width of 18 3/4" ( It is a bit wider but I measured it for hanging baskets) wide for stackable baskets. It also has an audible and visual temperature alarm. Although, this is a bit bigger than we needed, we went ahead and purchased it because our main chest freezer was finally dying and needed a replacement. In addition, the other models were delayed for up to 3 plus months due to Covid wrecking havoc everywhere. The only complaints I have about this model are it doesn't come with wheels, it only comes with two hanging baskets ( but more can be purchased online), and it's not energy star compliant which is a bit strange, especially in 2020. Nevertheless, it's still a great chest freezer as long as you have the needed room and the available budget. I hope this review makes you smile and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there looking at this great chest freezer.

Eiffel 11/18/2020

We placed our chest freezer in our garage. Within hours it was already cooling down. Very excited of how much room there is. Enough for our extra turkeys, steaks & chicken plus just ordered a half of pig. Very energy efficient as well we have not seen any increase over the last 2 months since delivered.

Dog Lover 1485 11/15/2020

We received the freezer on 11/03/2020 & did not plug it in until 11/13/2020 it cooled down within a couple of hours (empty) put some Already frozen food ( Not much) in it that day and it was fine until the next day when I noticed the high temperature light was on, I listened to hear if the compressor was running (It was not) It would periodically kick on & run for maybe 1 minute & would change sound to a high pitched whining sound for a couple of seconds & then you would hear a click which was the overload switch kicking the compressor off, it would do this repeatedly every 15 minutes or so, I believe the compressor is shot! Maybe we just got a lemon. I would like a new freezer not a repaired lemon!

We've been wanting a chest freezer. Now that we are cooking in large batches and freezing we realized we needed more freezer space. The GE garage ready chest freezer is perfect. Now we have an organized, spacious area so we can take advantage of sales and never have to order out again. We are thrilled with our new freezer. Totally quiet and user friendly. Thanks GE!
