There are two of us, me and my wife. This freezer has sufficient volume in it to stock typical meat and vegetable packages for a three to four month period depending on how much you eat. The freezer has worked from day one and freezes nicely. No issue with freezing at all. The only con is the two non-operating switches on the front of the freezer; you are initially led to believe the switches are broken or not connected, but the fact is; the same freezer body is used for different models and the rocker switches are not used on some of the models. GE could take the time to remove the intentionally non-operating switches and put a cover plate on it. The non-operating switches have angered other owners too. Aside from that con, this freezer is great for a couple and/or a husband-wife and two children. There is no internal light but so far that is not a problem, and we have not had any issue with ice or frost build-up in our three months of use.

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.

Great little freezer
from South East TX
Comments about GE FCM5SUWW White Manual Defrost Chest 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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Not much to say about a freezer. Bought it a few months ago and so far so good, no problems so far. Because it isn't an energy star freezer I have to give it a 4. All appliances should be energy star in this age of environmental awareness.

the freezer do exactly what it need to do, no problem at all.
Additional economical/space saving freezer
from Little Chute, WI, United States
Have wanted an extra freezer for a long time; recently built a bar in my basement with a pizza oven, and bought it for making additional ice and holding frozen pizzas. Immediately transferred other items from kitchen refrigerator/freezer to it and very happy I bought it.

I dragged my feet for several years on replacing my 30 year old 5 cubic foot upright freezer, until the door hinges rusted. I'm sorry I waited so long! This new chest freezer is the perfect size for my family, quiet, keeps the appropriate temperature, and is actually saving my electricity costs! I'm happy with it.
