Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bon achat Silencieux et discret, je suis très satisfaite de mon achat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5.1 Freezer Wonderland Installation was easy, we purchase 23/2019. It is still putting out strong coolness. The only thing I will say that's not so swell is the green indicator light is very very dim, I thought it had stopped working until I heard it kick on. It serves the purpose for my husband and I. It keeps the meet and veggies nice and frozen, not that frost bite look or taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I've had this product almost a month and it's still working. The only thing that's a downside is frost immediately started building up.

I can only use it with an extension cord in basement. What is the safest/best one to Use? For A/C? Something else?

All basement outlets are in basement, next to junction boxes (except washer & dryer and can’t get close enough).
Asked by: Lynne
Hi Lynne - Thanks for choosing Hotpoint! GE strongly recommends that an extension cord not be used with a freezer due to the potential safety hazards under certain conditions. However, if an extension cord is used, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL® listed 3-wire grounding appliance extension cord, and that the current carry rating of the cord be a minimum of 15 amp and 120 volts. Also, where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. Do not cut the grounding prong and do not use an adapter. For product availability, please contact the HD.com customer service department at 800-430-3376, call any day between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m. EST. We're glad to have you in the family. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to ask. We are also happy to help at GEAppliances.com! Sue

how many times or when does this freezer need to be defrosted?

how many times or when does this freezer need to be defrosted?
Asked by: tiger
Unfortunately I can't answer that question since I use the freezer as a keezer (like a kegerator) for beer kegs. So it is set to 36-38 deg F, thus never creates frost & doesn't require defrosting.

Asked by: tom
Sorry, I can't measure it for you as I've already unpacked it and torn up the box, but I could see the weight is 70 lbs. I think if you check this product on the HomeDepot website you will be able to see the specifications in the product detail section.

Will freezer work in a cellar with temps below 32 degrees Fahrenheit?

Will freezer work in a cellar with temps below 32 degrees Fahrenheit?
Asked by: Gravel
According to the owner's manual you're ok. The manual says "do not install the freezer where the temperature will go below zero degrees farenheit or above 110 degrees farenheit because it will not maintain proper temperatures".
