Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Very quiet but hard to level

Ed Ashworth 6/25/2020

Have been using this freezer for about a month. The instruction book should have a drawing and explanation on exactly how to level the thing. Be prepared to spend several minutes between getting down on your knees to adjust the feet and getting up to check your level. With that done, the freezer has been very quiet. We have noticed frost forming when the wire basket sets on the inner ledge. I would buy again.

Jason702 6/24/2020

You can tell this is a well built freezer. The freezer temperature dial is set half way to coldest setting and it keeps things colder than my refrigerator freezer. The popsicles are so cold they stick to your tongue if you don't let them sit a minute. The unit is also surprisingly quit especially compared to my refrigerator. You can barely hear it running other than a faint hum. I feel like it was definitely worth the price. The only con is with the depth. You have to pile and stack stuff on top of each other but that's the problem with all of the chest freezers. At least they give you a little basket to put smaller items in.

Mike2013 6/22/2020

This freezer works great for my needs. I have it set up in my garage to help alleviate storage in my kitchen freezer. I don't require a lot of additional storage so the size is perfect for me. If you are looking for a a lot of storage I would consider getting a larger unit. This particular product has more depth than width but if you are looking for something simple and size/cost effective, I would definitely recommend this product.

RobynFinchum 6/17/2020

We have been trying since the lockdown in March and finally got our freezer. We didn't really know where to put it so it ended up in the office. Luckily it is the perfect size, about the same height as the desk and it doesn't look bad in the background of zoom meetings. I need to find some kind of bins or shelves for easy access but other than that I really love it.

Eman55 6/17/2020

We were looking for a small freezer to keep in our garage. For several months I searched all of the big box stores for freezers only to be told that they were all on back order. No one could tell me when any freezers would be available either. Just as I was about to give up I stopped in at Hank's Electric and they put my name on a waiting list. Less than two weeks later they called me and offered the GE FCM5SKWW. It was the perfect size, had great features and was well in the price range I wanted. We took the offer and have been thrilled with the performance of this appliance. It is virtually silent in operation and keeps food at a perfect temperature. I highly recommend this small freezer to anyone looking for a great GE product. And a great shoutout to Hank's Electric for super service!

Great little freezer

Garage Freezer PQ 6/16/2020

We love our new small GE freezer. It's around 5.2 cubic feet which Is perfect size for my husband and me. Easy access to everything in freezer. Like the basket so we keep smaller items there. Only hiccup was the delivery time to Lowe's store. We ordered early March and was told it would be in April. We were ok with that. Then we'd get a call saying it's delayed. We finally got in early June but have loved it since then. I'm sure delay had to do with COVID-19 inventory and transportation. Thanks, GE!!

PDXLM 6/9/2020

We are quite pleased with our chest freezer - it fits nicely into the spot we'd chosen in our garage and is surprisingly spacious. The basket is helpful for items that we expect to use in the near term. The only thing that's surprised me is how quickly it builds up frost, although that may be because I haven't had a manual defrost appliance in many years.

Very quiet after a two day break-in. Performs as expected. Middle setting holds temperature @ -4 to +1 from bottom to top.
