Answer: 
Hello,
Thank you for your question on the GE Chest Freezer model # FCM9DTWH.
A freezer should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet (115 volt, 60 hertz, single phase AC).
The freezer should be on a dedicated circuit. This is recommended for best performance and to prevent
overloading house wiring circuits. It requires a 15 amp fuse/breaker.
I hope this helps!

Hello Texas Mike,
Thank you for choosing the GE Chest freezer model # FCM9DTWH.
Upon initial installation, or when the settings on the temperature controls are changed, it usually takes 24 hours to reach the proper temperature. When quick-freezing large amounts of food, turn control to No. 9 two hours before loading. Return control setting to No. 1 after freezing is completed.

Hello Texas Mike,
Thank you for choosing the GE Chest freezer model # FCM9DTWH.
Upon initial installation, or when the settings on the temperature controls are changed, it usually takes 24 hours to reach the proper temperature. When quick-freezing large amounts of food, turn control to No. 9 two hours before loading. Return control setting to No. 1 after freezing is completed.
When a large amount of food is placed in the freezer, it will transfer its warmth to the freezer, which will cause the compressor to run more as the freezer cools down the food. There is an established maximum of food that your freezer is designed to freeze at one time - approximately 3 pounds per cubic foot capacity. After allowing 24 hours to freeze, you may add another 3 pounds per cubic foot capacity.
I hope this helps!

Answer: 
It's on the bottom left side of the unit. The instructions said to put it at 4 initially. I haven't changed it since because the food freezes quickly and I don't get hardly any ice build-up. But then again I've only had it for a month so far.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for a growing family We're expecting a baby in a couple of months and wanted to freeze some meals in advance. We needed something that would fit in our utility room in the basement (tight fit going down the stairs). This freezer has more than enough space for a family of four. Love the lock (for safety) and the light (convenient for the basement or a garage). It's neither too big nor too small. And the energy efficiency is nice too, because some freezers require so much power, that we would have needed to bring another circuit into the basement. Would definitely recommend this freezer to others who have similar needs to ours. Delivery was on time and easy. January 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Additional freezing capacity Purchased this freezer to compliment an upright freezer that I already had so as to handle garden produce and take advantage of sales. I researched several models and determined that while this one was a bit more expensive than a number of them this model seemed to the best value for the price. Have had it for only a month but it has been working well and has a couple of nice features such as a light in the lid and the baskets are sturdy. The only thing that I would have liked to have on it is a power light to show that it is on without having to lift the lid. August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Freezer Storage For a Small Family We purchased this freezer shortly after moving into our new home. It fits perfectly in our garage by the door leading into our kitchen. As a family of 3 we are now able to buy meats and frozen foods in bulk to save money and have a place to store it. I buy the meat in bulk, marinate or season it, and freeze in the proper quantities. This makes meal prep a breeze! The only thing this freezer is missing is a light when you open the door. But, our light switch in the garage it right next to the freezer, so its not a big deal. August 9, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simple but good, just what I wanted Bought this to replace a 30 year old upright freezer (12ft3). didn't need one that big, this chest freezer is excellent size, better energy efficiency (newer, chest not upright). freezer is about 1/2 full, it is keeping 0F at the middle thermostat setting. (Have two separate thermometers in the freezer to confirm). Haven't had to defrost yet, but the drain plug should make this much less messy than with the old upright. March 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Nice runs good accurate temp After reading some of the reviews, especially regarding failure of the freezer, and the consumer having no knowledge of failure until one opens the lid and smells rotting food, I am really disappointed. My previous 5 year old freezer died one summer and I lost $200-$300 of food. I figured by now that a power light would be a mandatory requirement for all freezers. When I purchased this freezer I dropped down in size form a mfg who had this feature but never checked on the one I bought. My fault. Use my mistake to your benefit. Make sure your freezer has a power light September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Runs very quiet, and efficiently. Holds lots of frozen foods September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works better than expected. We bought it to store our meat products for our business. It is the only one in the price range we were looking for that has a lock. Works better than expected and it is a great value for its size. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product Is As Described We've only had this chest freezer for a few days, but it seems to be operating perfectly. It arrived in great condition, without a scratch. The freezer is attractive and has a textured surface. The big light inside is wonderful, as well as the storage racks. We have it in our basement and it does not make any noise at all after it cooled down to the temperature you desire (about 4 hours for us). We also like that the freezer has a lock, which is an excellent feature when young children are present. Overall, we are very pleased with this unit and hope to get many years of service from it.
