What does “garage ready” mean?

Asked by Mike June 5, 2021
2
Answers

Some systems struggle and work harder when the air is really hot. My guess is they took notice of this and made s few adjustments so it'll run more efficiently for those who live in hot environments.

Hello Cat - Congratulations on the new freezer. We appreciate your loyalty to the GE Appliances brand. We recommend making sure you have met the required installation clearances and the unit is at least half full. Should a freezer have a small food load, it may need to work harder to keep temperature as it has less product to hold in the cold air. We hope this helps. Keep in touch! - John@GEAppliances

how much does it weight?

Asked by zap November 19, 2020

Answers

Not sure on the weight-might say online that I don't recall. The two delivery guys carried it with shoulder dollies with no problem at all all the way around the house and into the back garage. Took about 10 minutes total.

why does the description say that this freezer requires water hook up? I have never seen a freeze...

Asked by saigon October 3, 2020

Answers

There is no water hookup, but there is a water drain plug for defrosting purposes.

Does the freeze have wheels or can wheels be added?

Asked by Cn August 31, 2020
2
Answers

The freezer does not come with wheels. They can be added if using a cart method. To screw anything to the bottom, you risk puncturing the insulated walls/floor.

Great size! Love the energy saver and garage feature. Just wish it had wheels so you can easily move it a little easier if you had to.

Big and perfect. Had a 84” space to fill and we cook a lot. Solid quality door and freezer. Works great and holds everything we need and then some.

Poor construction of lid frame and seals.
Poor construction of lid frame and design of seals. Powered on freezer. Checked function next day, good function. Opened lid three days later to begin loading, frost widespread below lid on front and rear interior. Tried 'dollar bill test', to check tightness of lid/ seals. No grip, whatsoever, to hold bill under closed lid.

Nice size, great features
Lots of room, love the fact that it has an alarm if the power goes off. It also has lights to let you know if the freezer is too warm.

A BEAUTIFUL CHEST FREEZER WITH MANY FEATURES
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CHEST FREEZER. EVEN BETTER THAN WHAT WE EXPECTED. IT RUNS SO QUIET, CANT REALLY HEAR IT. YEARLY COST MAYBE 37.00. WE NEEDE EXTRA FREEZER SPACE SO THAT MORE FOOOD CAN BE ON HAND. THE EXTRA BASKETS ARE WONDERFUL. IT IS A GARAGE READY FREEZER AND PERFECT AS WE HAD NO OTHER ROOM FOR IT.

Frost build up all over top.
Wasn’t able to wait on Black Friday deals. Had a 5 cubic feet chest freezer for about 19 years, that wasn’t working properly and needed to be put out into pasture. Also had a 13 cubic feet upright freezer that died less than 6 years after buying it, wouldn’t buy that brand again. Before buying this Brand and model, I did my research and read lots of reviews on different sites. Many positive ones. It was the only brand and model, beside the GE 21 cubic, that has the two shelve rows for bins. I brought it due to the GE name brand and the two row shelves for bins for putting small items. I would prefer it in black, and had more bins or a reasonable purchasing price for them, especially after paying such price for the freezer. I read the manual and then called the company were it was brought at, to find out if there was a waiting time before plugging in the freezer, but the agent wasn’t able to help. So I researched it online and found a few comments mentioned to wait, due to oil coming out of the compressor in delivery route, but a few mentioned no need to. We didn’t want to take a chance, so we waited over 36 hours, clean the freezer as instructed by the manual and then plug it in. The alarm did go off. I assume due to it being plug in and turn on for the first time. It got cold fast. However there are ice build up on the top part of the freezer, all around the border and on the basket handles as well as on the door. As well as it does get hot. I don’t think it should be like that. It does have a little hole on one of the rails. I do like the freezer, but only time would tell if this pricey machinery was worth it. However it is needed. Pro: 2 shelves rows for bins to put small items. Can hold up to 4-5 bins per row 15.7 cubic feet, large enough for a big family. Has a lock to protect young ones 2 keys Has a high temperature alarm A green on indicator light Very quiet. Light in the door Door can stay up with out assistance Con: Only comes in white Only comes with 4 bins Extra bins are pricey No dividers to the bottom, plus no means to purchase them. No heavy duty caster wheels for easy movement Have ice frost build up all over top part of freezer. Do take up a lot of space Does get hot As mentioned time would tell. Overall I would recommended the freezer.
