    good little freezer
    by: Anonymous

    The GE FCM7UWW is a pretty good little freezer that holds 7.0 cubic feet of stuff.

    I originally bought this unit to keep in my garage. I wanted to keep the deer and squirrels that I hunt out there so we would have extra food.

    I have to say this little machine does it's job without an issue over the last year or so we have owned it. It even worked when I had to move and keep in the house. Installing it was pretty quick, very plug and play.

    I liked the color since it went with all my items in my kitchen. The sound is pretty good, you don't notice that it's there most of the time. Only gets loud when it is very warm in the house. I think that's because it has to work extra hard in the summer. I don't have AC so that would quite it down if you have that.

    The two things I do have a issue with this machine are, not energy star compliant. I couldn't get the government rebate on this machine because it wasn't a energy star unit.

    The second issue I have with this machine is if you live where I do, southern Florida. You will have some frost issues with the machine. This is due to the humidity in the air gets stuck in there and freezes up. Overall this is a pretty good machine with lots of storage if you need to store a couple weeks extra food.

    Pros
    ? Very easy to install and doesnt need a drip pan.
    ? Keeps all the food very frozen and no warm spots found in the machine.

    Cons
    ? I don't like it when it has to work a lot in the summer and it gets loud sometimes.
    ? I wish I could have had a rebate for this machine from the government.
