Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size freezer, at a great price! This freezer is the perfect size for my wife and I. For a family of more than 2 I would probably recommend something a little bigger but, combined with the freezer in our fridge, we have more than enough space for everything we need frozen. It's also really nice to have the shelves in the door, as most freezers this size (and even quite a few bigger ones) don't. Another small feature I'm quite fond of is the removable defrost tray at the bottom of the freezer, which should make defrosting extremely easy. I personally haven't had the need to defrost ours yet, but it's going to be nice to not to have to use a bucket to do so. Overall we're very happy with this freezer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Danby Freezer This freezer worked for 2 months and then failed. We lost all our food. Danby are very difficult to deal with. They want the customer to determine the problem with the freezer and then they can't decide what to do. We need it fixed or replaced. I spoke to Home Depot and it is left with Danby so they have offered no support. While the warranty is 5 years it is useless if nobody does anything to solve the problem. Really disappointed by Home Depot as I do a lot of business with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer. It fits 1 deer. 1/3rd of a bull moose. 1 black bear. 10 geese. Few fish. If your a serial killer I reckon you could fit 5 adults in to it.......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy Not good at all, we purchased bc of its size with hopes to store a few months worth of food at a time. Certainly big enough for what we wanted. The problem is that it wouldn’t freeze the meat. I had turned on the unit the day before after letting stand for a couple days. Then placed meat in freezer using vacuum sealed bags, 10 hours later the chicken was still not frozen. I will be returning now that stores are open for returns.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RUN AWAY FROM THIS FREEZER We bought one, didn't freeze. Meat from original freezer that was frozen, started to defrost in this one. Lost $$. Bread wouldn't even freeze. Tried going thru Danby, waste of time. Exchanged at the store. 2nd one, exact same thing. Was told Danby would call me in 2-3 hrs and we were a priority call. It's been 4 days and I've got 2 emails asking proof of purchase and a few typical questions like is the door shut, is it in sun... such a waste of time. Home Depot should be embarrassed to sell this crap. They've lost a customer and will never buy Danby again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great online process early in the reopen after lock down, our current small chest deep freeze quit. Ordered one on line from an appliance store and the day before we were to pick up they infofmed us out of stock for about 6 weeks. Went online at Home Depot found one that would work, purchased it, booked it for pick up. They emailed when ready. We drove up, parked in the clearly marked online pick up area, called the store and they brought it out right away and helped load into our truck. The process was very easy. The upright freezer is exactly what we needed, large enough for a family of 2 plus a couple of dogs (they have their own shelf in the freezer for their food).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent freezer Freezer works excellent! You can easily keep food organized and you can see what you have easily without having to dig through like you have to with a chest freezer. Easy to switch the door over. This freezer does create a lot of frost so it will have to be defrosted more often. I did my research on freezers and took lots of reviews into consideration before my purchase . All the reviews I read were very accurate especially regarding lots of frost buildup. Great freezer and energy efficient and nice to have a five year warranty for piece of mind.

Hi I just purchased this freezer but I'm a bit confused about setting the proper temperature. (The numbers don't tell what temperature they represent) At what nr should I set the freezer? Thank you for your help

Asked by: Revan
The temperature setting will depend on the ambient temperature and how much food is stored in the unit. We recommend setting the temperature to the halfway point and then decide whether to turn it up or down based on how the unit performed. If you have any other questions please contact us directly at consumerservice@danby.com so we can assist you further.

What are the INTERNAL dimensions of this? You providing external dimensions, while important, is useless to understanding whether this will fit anything in it.

Everytime I close the freezer door I hear quite a loud "shhhhhh" - is this normal? I understand it's airtight, but is the noise normal? Thank you.

Asked by: rNd L
Hello rNd L, That is a normal sound of the door resealing. When you close the door warm air gets inside and the process of cooling it creates a suction which is why we recommend you wait a few minutes before trying to reopen the door. Regards Ann

Asked by: Loretta
Hello Loretta, Thank you for your question. We recommend that you allow the freezer to stand in an upright position for approximately 6 hours before you plug it in. Regards Ann
