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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

Submitted by JJ Jackson - 3/30/2020

This is the perfect size for a single family house hold. We can get a 1/4 beef in the freezer and still have a fair bit of room left over for other miscellaneous items. The only thing I would have liked was instruction about how cold of a setting is necessary to keep the food frozen. The halfway point seems to work fine, so that's where I left it.

Just Rigjt!

Submitted by Greengirl25 - 3/28/2020

I ordered this chest freezer due to COVID-19. The one we previously had got ruined during Hurricane Harvey. We never replaced it until now. This one is compact big big enough to hold the amount of food we are looking to store. It has two rollers underneath on one side and adjustable legs on the other side. It's just right and does not take up a lot of space in the garage. It has a basket and a shelf on the inside and for cold quickly. Lightweight but durable. Energy efficient. 5.0 cubic feet and manual defrost. I've always loved GE products. I highly recommend!!!

Best Small Freezer

Submitted by Wohcrag - 3/26/2020

I purchased the FCM5S freezer and think that it is a very good value . The freezer is nearly silent. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the small basket that it comes with. Purchased an additional basket online and now bliss.

Submitted by Colorado Boomer - 3/24/2020

I am completely satisfied. We don't have a lot of space, but it fit nicely in small basement storage room. I measured the temperature before placing food in it. It easily cooled to below zero on the average setting. It is quiet. We've only had it for a couple of weeks, but we are delighted with its capacity and rock hard frozen food that we've pulled out.

Tiny

Submitted by Surprised2 - 1/13/2020

I think it is tiny inside. It is much more narrow than my older one but just as deep, which means you have to plan where you put stuff very carefully. It only comes with one tiny basket. The sides frost up very quickly. Tough to get in and out of.

GE considers their fridge disposable

Submitted by SomeoneSomewhereToronto - 1/6/2020

Fridge lasted 2 years beyond the 1 year warranty. GE won't cover any repairs to the freezer even after escalation. So, in effect, GE considers their chest freezers disposable after 1 year. Beware.
