Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective unit I bought this item online. I put some food In there and a couple of days later when I opened the freezer the food had spoiled and there was a horrible smell. The freezer arrived defective RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. I contacted danby and they made it a headache to even contemplate getting the unit serviced . They asked me ridiculous questions like what’s the humidity in the room that the unit is placed in . Who knows the humidity of their rooms ?! Also had to drive from Toronto to Woodbridge to return the item because the Home Depot in Toronto wouldn’t accept returns during the pandemic. Totally unimpressed. I would not recommend this brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False Advertising - Product not as described I recently purchased this product due to the two bright blue tags on the specific Danby product, 'Garage Ready' and '5 Year Warranty'. I was attracted to a product that was identified as to working properly in an unheated space (ie a garage). However, after bringing the item home and manhandling this box into my apartment, I then read in the owners manual that this product is NOT suitable for use in a garage. 3 separate calls to home depot customer service to determine the products suitability were met with long wait times and ultimately no solution. My warning to other purchasers is using in a garage may void your warranty.1 star because can't leave a review without picking something. Disappointed more with Home Depot than Danby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size for small space! I bought on Black Friday. Great deal! Nice little chest freezer. It works great but only drawback is when it starts up its makes a gurgling noise. When I called Danby to question I was told that’s a normal sound but other than that it’s perfect. Love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid So far so good. Solid little unit perfect fit in my condo. A little bit of a clicking sound when it kicks on but not too loud. For now. Great delivery service. Quick and arrived in great shape.

How many amps does this freezer draw?

Asked by: 66joej
Good morning and thank you for your question. This unit draws 1.4A while running. Please keep in mind that the amps will increase by up to six times every time the compressor starts, meaning the starting amps are 8.4A.

is this danby chest freezer ok for an RV application? would the vibration of travel harm it?

Asked by: Walter
I'm sure it would be. Most after factory installations in an RV would have to be strapped for travel. It's quiet and a perfect size.

Does garage ready mean this freezer can be kept in an unheated space in winter or should it be kept in a room temp area? I know many fridges / freezers will be damaged if kept in below 0 temps.

Asked by: Brad
Hello Brad, This is not your average freezer! Garage Ready means the freezer can perform in temperatures from 0°F to 110°F (-17°C to 43°C). It also means that the unheated space is some type of building where the freezer is protected from the elements and that it is standing on something solid. Kind regards, Blaire

Can this freezer be used outside? (covered area)

Asked by: mrondpre
Hello mrondpre, This freezer is rated Garage Ready which means that there should be a building that the unit is in. It is not recommended that this freezer be exposed to the snow, rain or wet ground, Kind regards, Blaire

How long does it take for this freezer to get cold? I’ve had it plugged in since Saturday and it is not cold at all... I’ve moved the temperature dial to either side and it’s still not keeping my food cold

Asked by: Erin
Hello Erin, It should only take a few hours for your freezer to get to the required temperature. Please ensure that the outlet is working. You should contact Home Depot to set up an exchange. Kind regards, Blaire
