Customer Questions & Answers

what are the running amps

i need to know wire size and breaker size
Asked by: beast
Hello - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you. GE freezers (excluding international units) function at 115 VAC, 60 Hz and have approximately a 5 amp draw. Freezers typically draw extra current during start up (approx. two to three times). The freezer should be on a dedicated circuit. This is recommended for best performance and to prevent overloading house wiring circuits. The exact amps that an individual freezer draws is on the rating plate and should be considered if placing the freezer on a generator or other auxiliary power source. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

Help to maintain freezing temperature

I have heard it is always best to have a full freezer rather then a partially empty freezer in order to help maintain temperature when the freezer is opened. In times when the freezer is not full is it a good idea to store frozen gallon jugs of water to help maintain this full freezer effect. Also, would this be too much weight in the freezer? Thank you
Asked by: RANTAC2
Hi Justformetcp-this is Sue from GE. I am happy to provide assistance. Upon initial installation, or when the settings on the temperature controls are changed, it usually takes 24 hours to reach the proper temperature. If the freezer is less than two-thirds full, or the freezer is opened frequently, it may take longer than 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize. To ensure that the freezer reaches a stable temperature within 24 hours, fill it 2/3 full with food, or anything else that will take up space and absorb cold (such as plastic jugs filled 2/3 with water). This would not be too much weight for the freezer. Limit door openings during the initial 24-hour period. Thanks for checking with us!

How many pounds of food will this freezer hold?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello KT, Thank you for your inquiry on the GE 24.9 cu. ft. Chest Freezer model # FCM25SBWW. There are many factors that contribute to the volume of food that your freezer will hold including the physical size and shape of each item. In general, a freezer will hold 30 to 35 pounds per Cubic Foot. The maximum amount of food that your freezer can freeze at one time is 3 pounds per Cubic Foot. After allowing 24 hours for that to freeze, you can then add another 3 pounds per Cubic Foot. Should you have any additional question, we are always happy to help! Donna with GE

Customer Reviews

24.9 cu. ft. Chest Freezer in White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was *almost* exactly what we needed We purchased this freezer after reading the many great reviews on it. The baskets and two tier placement option is fantastic. It also has a nice little guard on that 'hump' where the motor is - you know, that ledge you always try to stack things on and they end up sliding off? Problem solved! The guard turns that frustrating space into a stationary basket type set up. We were NOT able to fit a whole cow's worth of beef in this freezer, but to be fair there was a reason why. My hubby is extreme type A, so nothing was 'just flung in' - it was alphabetized, categorized and divided by species (can you see me rolling my eyes?!). We bought this behemoth to hold one cow, various remaining pig parts and some chicken. If the beef was all we had going into it, it MIGHThave fit just fine. This freezer is huge. As in, you could probably rent it out as a nice sized efficiency apartment in NYC, big. We cleared what we thought was enough room in our garage to place it, only to have to make more space available when it arrived. Hubby reminded me that garages aren't really for parking cars in anyway, so it's fine I guess. Overall, it is a great freezer for our needs. If you're looking for something to store a few frozen pizzas and a couple boxes of hot pockets in, keep looking. If you want space to store a lifetime supply of hot pockets and pizza, this G.E. freezer may be just what you're after!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of room I put 340 lb. of beef in this freezer and still had room to spare. The freezer is big and the baskets come in handy for sorting. Nice clean look and the ON light is very handy for making sure the freezer is still running. I really like the interior light as well. Once the delivery guys put this in my basement, I was easily able to slide it over to its final setup location by myself. Good product with no complaints so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST CHEST FREEZER FOR MY MONEY Very pleased with my new GE chest freezer. Really appreciate its quiet performance, apparent efficiency and separate compartments.
