Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product I bought the freezer and had to have repairs done on it with in the first month of having it because it wasn't freezing my food. Then it took over two months for it to be fixed. Very unhappy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little freezer I bought this freezer to replace an old one we'd had for years. The first thing I did was to put a thermometer in it and check the temperature. After it reaches operating temperature, there's virtually no variance. It cycles properly, is quiet and produces little frost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just Bought a 5.0 cu. feet chest freezer Greetings, I just bought a GE 5.0 cubic chest freezer last week. I bought a separate thermostat. I have the freezer set at 3 quarters max power and I can not seem to get the freezer to go below 0 degrees. It appears that this freezer is not working properly. I do not think I should have to crank the freezer at the max level to go below 0 degrees. I would like a response on this issue.
