Questions & Answers


what are the running amps

Asked by beast October 11, 2014

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

Asked by RANTAC2 October 21, 2013

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 KT October 11, 2012

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

Can this freezer maintain -4 to -13 degrees below Fahrenheit over an extended perior of time?

Asked by Nicole July 12, 2012

Hello Nicole, Thank you for your question on the GE Chest Freezer model # FCM25SBWW. The correct operating temperature of chest and upright freezers is -5 to +5 degrees Fahrenheit. It is not designed to consistently maintain lower operating temperatures for extended time. The freezer is not designed for commercial use or storage of non-food items. Donna with GE

What is the voltage on this items and the cycle, is it a 50/60hz?

Asked by Eybo July 5, 2012

Hello Eybo, Thank you for your inquiry on the GE Chest Freezer imodel # FCM25SBWW. I will be happy to help! 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 could cause a possible fire hazard from overheating wires. volts x amps = wattage Start-up amps and wattage are usually 3 times more than running amps or watts. If you are wanting to use a generator, the generator size should be 3000-4500 watts. Have a great day! Donna with GE

how many amps does it pull?

Asked by Seth May 1, 2012

Hello Seth, Thanks for your inquiry. This is Alison at GE. I am glad to help. All current GE and HPT refrigerators, freezers, compact refrigerators, wine chillers, beverage centers, and icemakers require a 15 amp fuse/breaker (no larger size is necessary). The running amps and volts are listed on all rating plates of the product. If you need this information to run the appliance on a generator; please review the information below: The use of an auxiliary power generator is an individual decision. There are some things to keep in mind when considering use of an auxiliary generator. Voltage and cycles are critical for proper operation of appliances. US power standards are 60 Hz, 120v ac. Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners place a high demand upon the power source when cycling on. The running amperage is listed on the rating plate of the appliance. However, the start-up amperage could be as high as 3x the normal running amps. If the voltage is not stable tripping could occur during attempted startups. Any variation in cycles could cause electric clocks to go fast or slow. Generators should be voltage regulated and surge protected for the appliances. Some generators may not be recommended by the generator manufacturer for use with major appliances. GE does not recommend specific generators, only approximate sizes. It is suggested that anyone interested in generator compatibility with a major appliance check the specifications with the generator manufacturers. Below is the approximate size generator needed for each appliance category: APPLIANCE GENERATOR SIZE REFRIGERATORS 3000 - 4500 WATTS FREEZERS 3000 - 4500 WATTS RANGES 26,000 - 40,000 WATTS RANGES (GAS) 1500 - 2500 WATTS MICROWAVES 3000 - 4500 WATTS DISHWASHERS 3000 - 4500 WATTS WASHERS 2000 - 3000 WATTS DRYERS 11000 - 17000 WATTS DRYERS (GAS) 1500 - 2500 WATTS Room Air Conditioner (240V) 9000 - 13500 WATTS Room Air Conditioner (120V) 3000 - 4500 WATTS NOTE: AMPS X VOLTS = WATTS I hope this information is helpful. Let us know if you have further questions. Sincerely, Alison

Love all the storage bins.
I needed a freezer and this model was perfect. So many storage bins so things won't get lost or buried. I am really happy with my purchase.
by Sobella
Very pleased with my new GE chest freezer. Really appreciate its quiet performance, apparent efficiency and separate compartments. The five trays are very sturdy and easy to maneuver. The freezer holds 0 degrees Fahrenheit very well. I recommend this product to everyone!

by giggles866
Very roomy!
We bought this to replace a 20+ year-old freezer. We had just put all new GE appliances in the house and wanted to stick with GE. We have not been disappointed. The freezer is roomy and has several baskets to keep smaller items in.
by mrsc81
Great Size and Features
I bought this freezer last year. I have a large family with a need for a large, efficient freezer to freeze our home made food and produce. It works great with lots of room.
by Leaderone
convenient for my needs and my age
i continue to be satisfied with this freezer and do not regret my purchase. we have been faithful repeat g.e.customers since 1969 and my different family members have been even prior to then. my previous g.e. chest freezer was 38 years old.
by dear
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!
