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.

The size I wanted.

Submitted by deb16470 - The freezer is a good fit for my needs in terms of capacity and the amount of space it takes. The tradeoff is that it is quite deep, so I realize I need to have some kind of rotation system in place for the food items.

Submitted by Rgent - It does come with a cover on the back where the power cord goes so there is an 8"x8" opening where critters can get in to make a nice warm nest next to the compressor. I had to cover it with chicken wire myself. Other than that it works fine.

Great small freezer, very quiet.

Submitted by Rangers fan - Love my freezer. Perfect for small family. I have it in my dining area of my apartment and it truly is very quiet! Looks nice too. Has a bright green light at bottom right so you know if the light goes off you have lost power to it. Have not had a problem with that though. Well worth the purchase price.

So far so good....

Submitted by JJ Jackson - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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.
