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 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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glad Hi temp light
I noticed the "Hi temp " light in my freezer is on. I have looked at the manual but it doesn't tell how to troubleshoot it. Do I bring the temp down? I have unplugged and plugged it. Normally it sits at level5. It is in the garage and we live in northern colorado

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jantastic Should have buoght one years ago!
I have had this GE model for a year. It was my first and only freezer so I did a lot of research before the purchase. I saw mixed reviews on this one, but mostly good. As a precaution I bought the 5 year warranty plan but it has performed admirably. It is in an unheated garage in Michigan, so it has been exposed to both temperature extremes. I did make sure to put it on an inside wall. I can fit plenty in it and I love it. The external temperature display is a nice feature so you can detect if there is a problem (which I have not experienced). Love that it is frost-free so no maintenance, and it is not too large and fits easily between our two parked cars.

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 chris61 Great upright freezer for the price
Purchased this as a replacement for a chest type freezer. So much easier to find everythig and now can actually sort products on the shelves and bins. Plenty of storage space and shelves on the door are perfect for storing breads, mugs, batteries and beer for fast cooling. Having a frost free unit is a huge plus, although the unit does run longer than non-defrosters but it's worth it to me. We have the unit in a separate utility room so the noise is not bothersome. It's not very loud but if it's in a common area I could see where it might be an issue. Shopped around other stores and models before deciding on this one - totally satisfied!
