Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amethyst So Far, So Good
This upright freezer was delivered and placed in the garage. I have been concerned about the effect of the Florida heat and humidity on my electric bill and on the freezer itself. Time will tell. The freezer works very well. It froze water quickly after delivery and I was able to place a small amount of food in there. By the next day, I put all of my overflow in there. The temperature stayed consistant. When you open the door, everything is so easily visible. Now I can happily take advantage of great deals in the supermarkets - one for now, one for later. No regrets.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BusyRN Just a little noisy
We purchased this freezer to replace one that has been in the basement for several years. This new one is in our kitchen for convenience. When the compressor runs it is very loud. We recommend placing it in an area where noise will not be a factor.
We've found no other problems with the unit. We love the frost free feature. The unit was easy to set up & run. The delivery went well and the deliverymen were wonderful considering it was pouring down rain when they arrived.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3578 Buyer Beware!!!!!
I purchased this freezer two years ago and a few days ago the digital electrical control on the door went out. Without this control the unit completely shuts down. I lost a thousand dollars or more in seafood and other meats. While in search of the replacement part I learned that the original part frequently breaks but was told that the replacement part had a better history. I contacted GE to inquire if there was a recall on the part but was told no. While GE would not replace the part they did offer to reimburse $100 toward the food loss. The cost of the part and service call is almost half of the cost of the unit. Buyer beware!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dak131 Great Size, nice unit
I have had this unit for almost 2 weeks. I like the size as it hold more that you would think. A little noisier that my 20 year old chest freezer but this seems to be the norm with new units. I hope I am this happy in 10-20 years.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maggie123 Short life on control module
Bought this freezer Sept 2009 and it failed last week. Alarm did not go off and Hi Heat indacator didn't lite either. Went to put food in and noticed stuff already in it was soft. Went to lower temp but module wouldn't work. Today the serviceman informed me that module control was gone. He said that freezer should not be kept in area that does not maintain a temp of 60 - 80 degrees. Control works like a computer. In the manuel it says not to put in temps below 0 and above 110. Cost for new control $333.00 Wanting to go back to the old kind of controls I checked with consumer digest and the Whirlpool 15.8 cu ft Frost Free got very high marks. I ordered one today and should have it but next Wed.I

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CKaty It's a freezer, it freezes.
It is doing a great job of freezing, makes a little noise while cooling but reaches temp fast and then just sits there, well, freezing. Good size for what I need, simple to set and operate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BargainHunter FANTASTIC APPLIANCE...FANTASTIC BUY!
I was impressed with this freezer, as it contains features of bigger and more expensive models. While many reviewers claimed it is a "very noisy" appliance, I found it to be quite the opposite. It is whisper quiet. If you have to keep the door open for an extensive period of time, lets say to put items in or re-arrange, then the compressor kicks in and it does have a loud noise for a few minutes, but shortly after closing the door, it returns to it's quiet operation. The delivery people were very conscientious in calling, were on time, very accommodating and left no mess. I am really thrilled with this purchase in every aspect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by red67 LOUD freezer
We bought this freezer to replace one that had a meltdown. This is the LOUDEST freezer I have ever heard. We put in the laundry room where the other unit was and it will keep you awake at night. It cycles on and off frequently. We have placed rubber pads under the legs of the unit which has reduced some of the noise. I would not recommed this unit unless you are putting it in the garage.
