Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Died after about 2 Years We purchase our freezer from Magic Chef about 2 years ago. It completely stopped working. Tried to get it going again on my own but had no luck. Very frustrating because we lost everything that was in the freezer. We didn't notice it until there was a puddle of water on our basement floor. Just from reading the other reviews, if you want a $350 freezer that is works for about a year, this is your freezer. If you want it around for longer than that, I would go with a different brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Model MCUF88W Bought this 11/25/2011 Stopped working 11/14/2014 don't buy this The repair will cost more than we pd for the freezer read the warranty I really feel like I wasted $345.00 Juanita from Washington State November 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dont buy this product !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only lasted 4 and 1/2 years.....just stopped working (of course it had to happen when it was full of food). Called Home Depot - they did NOTHING, called Magic Chef - they did NOTHING. It only has a one year warranty for parts and labor...compressor(part only) has a 5 yr warranty but it'll cost you $129 to replace it ! This tells me Magic Chef only stands behind their product for one lousy year ! The unit cost me $300 brand new - it should last more than 4 years ! I'm VERY disappointed in this product, and both companies for not standing behind their goods with a rebate or credit ! October 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't walk...Run away from this product!! I have had this freezer for almost 4 years and it just died out of the blue. Luckily my wife spotted water dripping from the freezer and we were able to save all the food from getting ruined. Very disappointed that this freezer did not last longer. Just had to replace a refrig/freezer over the summer but was not as lucky as everything had to be thrown out. It would be nice if things were built in the USA and made to last like they used to be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Entry Level Upright Freezer I've been looking for a small upright freezer for YEARS to fit in a tight spot in my dining room. I used to have a chest freezer in that spot that was 5 cu. ft. and wasn't big enough as our family grew. I found this one on sale for about 15% off the normal price and decided to buy it, despite some bad reviews, which I now think are more User Error than Product Error. The door seal is very strong, and as long as you take the time to ensure that it is closed, I don't see any way it can pop open. Closing a door isn't hard to do. Delivery was 5 days early! The driver contacted me via phone and text to let me know he was on his way. He even brought it into the house, though I only paid for Basic delivery. I've attached some photos of my freezer with food in it so you can get an actual idea of what it will hold. You will see how big the freezer is in relation to other household objects. The door photo only shows three of the door shelves; there is one more at the bottom. The interior photo shows you all the shelves except the tiny one on top - i was able to fit 4 packs of regular bacon up there. The shelves (except the tiny top one) are 17"d x 18"w x 9"h. I plan on getting some plastic bins to sort my steak/chicken/pork, etc. January 20, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steer Clear Bought the freezer in July 2011. It worked fine for almost two years but then quit. Called a certified Magic Chef repair person who charged $85.00 to tell me that the freezer wasn't worth fixing because the labor would cost more than a new freezer. Said the freezer wasn't really a Magic Chef but that a Chinese company had paid for the rights to put Magic Chef on the label. Said the refrigerant leak wouldn't be covered anyway. I liked the size and the upright design, but if it can't be trusted, who needs it? Of course one the worse things is that a fair amount of garden produce was ruined. October 19, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Please Read all reviews, I didn't and regret it now I am happy to announce that I was able to get 3 years out of this freezer, but now she is dead. It was never the best freezer, the door didn't always seal so many times we came out the garage with dripping meat juice on the floor. This time we saw the same and assumed it was the same issue so we just closed it and left it another couple days to find that it had not been working for a while now. I tried a few things to fix it, the relay and capacitor, but it was a rabbit hole not worth entering. RIP freezer and thank you for teaching me to read reviews for future purchases!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!! This freezer went COMPLETELY out in 9 months and MAGIC CHEF DOES NOT HONOR THEIR WARRANTY!!!!! Their customer service Reps (RAY & LEWIS) were/are very rude and could not understand why them sending out a refund for ONLY just the purchase price (no tax - meaning they were not even covering all of my costs for the defective unit) was not enough!!! I did not want their money, I only wanted a working freezer!!!! The freezer low quality anyway (PLEASE READ THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS) as it only worked for 9 months... And now I see that the overall Magic Chef Company is low qulaity too. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TIME!!!! September 18, 2012
