Does Aaron's check my credit?
As part of our digital approval processes, Aaron’s will check credit history and creditworthiness and rely upon customer reports and information obtained from third-parties in considering your application. We do check credit sources; however, we look at many other data points to make a final decision, and we regularly approve customers that other stores won’t, including customers with less than perfect credit or very little credit history.
How do I make my payments?
Your first payment for an online order must be made using a debit or credit card. Once the first payment is made, your local store will accept cash, checks, money orders, and all major credit cards, or you can continue to pay online. If you are interested in online payments, please go to myaccount.aarons.com and click on “Register.”
Can I pay out my lease early?
Yes. You can purchase the product at any time. If your ownership plan is longer than 6 months, you can take advantage of Aaron’s same as cash option. For those new agreements with a payment option longer than 6 months, if you payout your merchandise within the applicable same as cash period, you will pay the cash price, plus tax and applicable fees (if any). The same as cash period varies by location but is generally 120 days. For California residents the same as cash option is 90 days for all rental purchase agreements.
In addition, after the same as cash option expires, you can purchase the merchandise for more than the cash price but less than the total of remaining lease payments, as described in your lease agreement. This early purchase option amount varies by state and is explained in the lease agreement.
What is Aaron's return policy?
Once your item has been delivered, you can contact your local store to schedule a time for return or pick-up as stated in your agreement. However, you will not receive a refund. But don’t forget about our lifetime reinstatement benefit; you can restart your lease anytime you like on the same or comparable value merchandise (excludes lawn equipment). See a store associate for complete details.

What is the minimum temperature for this freezer?

Asked by: jrcc77
Good afternoon, Thank you for connecting with us here at GEA, this is a great question and we are happy to help! The correct operating temperature of chest and upright freezers, including smaller, compact models is -5 to +5 degrees Fahrenheit. In order to take the temperature of solid food, place a thermometer between frozen packages or in some ice cream. The MAX to MIN or Cold to Coldest position settings on the dial do not equate to a specific temperature. For more on temperature and control settings, we recommend viewing this link here: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=18751 We hope this helps, have a great day! -Garrett@GEA

HI, can i disable the power cut alarm somehow? I have a temp controller on the freezer and when it cuts out then cuts back on the beeping is annoying.

Asked by: adamcask
Hello Adam, We are sorry this alarm is causing a disturbance in your home! The audible alarm on this model can be triggered on and off by the temperature control being set very low. We recommend the temperature control dial to be placed in the middle of cold and coldest- it can balance the temperature inside. In order to reset the alarm, press and hold the alarm reset button on the front of the chest freezer. We hope this information is helpful and you can fully enjoy this awesome GE Appliance! -SAM@GEA

Is there a wheel kit for this freezer

Asked by: Tony15
Hello - Thanks for reaching out to us, this is a great question! The FCM22DLWW does not have wheels and wheels cannot be purchased and installed on the freezer. The pegs cannot be removed, they are a part of the case bottom. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. - Trey@GEA

What is the horsepower rating of the compressor motor for the GE FCM22DLWW Freezer?

Asked by: libertybar
Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to us. We hope you are doing well and staying safe. This is an awesome model and we think you would love it. The compressors used in all of our refrigerators and freezers are sized according to the specific refrigerator or freezer model. As a result, a BTU or horsepower rating is not available. However, we can let you know that the average running amperage of this model is 2.0. We hope this helps out some. Thank you for your interest. Stay safe. Jonathon@GEA

How long will the freezer keep food frozen in the vent of a power outage?

Asked by: Freezer502
Hello - Thanks for reaching out to us, this is a great question! If there is a power outage, we recommend the following to keep the food in a chest freezer preserved as long as possible: Keep the door closed. Place bags of regular ice in the freezer to help keep foods frozen. If it is anticipated that power will be out for a length of time, you can try to keep food frozen or at least cold in a cooler using either bags of regular ice or with dry ice. It is hard to say exactly how long the unit can keep food frozen without power because there are so many variables. We hope this helps! - Trey@GEA
