Operating and maintaining the unit is simplified by the manual-defrosting system, the front-mounted defrost drain, and the easy-to-clean interior liner.

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

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

Home Depot shows this product as garage ready-the owner's manual states the product is not suitable for use in a garage. Similar warning in owner's manual for the Danby 5.5 cu ft manual defrost chest freezer that is also advertised as "garage ready". Why?

Asked by: disappiinted
Hello disappiinted, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We apologize for the confusion. This chest freezer is garage ready and does have a 5 year warranty. Unfortunately you may have received the older version of the manual which does not state this. The unit is designed to operate in ambient temperatures between 0F and 110F. If you have any questions please fill in the web form on our website https://www.danby.com/support/ so that we can clear up any questions you may have. Sincerely Ann
