Customer Questions & Answers

Is it normal for the shelves to become covered in frost in the first month of use?

I have had my freezer for a month now on the factory setting of 4, and week by week there has been visible frost building up on the shelves and I am wondering if that is normal or if I have received a defective unit. There is about 1/4" or more of frost on some of the shelves.
Asked by: Huawoman
As a reply to the last answer. I appreciate your input, but the model I have is not a frost-less freezer. I have had the repair man out twice. The first time we discovered that the seal was not completely installed by the manufacturer and that caused the initial issue. I called him back when I started seeing basically the same kind of build up. He thought maybe the auto defrost wasn't working right and said he would order the part. When I called a couple weeks later to check on the part, he came over and told me that he had called the MFG and learned that there is no auto-defrost and that this is in no way a frost-less freezer. He said the MFG said I will have to defrost it every six months. Right now it is in serious need of defrosting and I have had it only 3 months. The repairman that represents the manufacturer keeps telling me nothing is wrong with it, so they won't replace it, even tho it appears to me that I received a lemon. I just now noticed that Home Depot no longer sells this model. Coincidence?

Can this freezer survive a partly heated Garage environment?

The old Freon units could survive a -40 degree environment. I have had two individuals tell me; both with about 45 years of combined commercial/residential repair, tell me that upright freezers can not be outside and should be in an environment of 55 degrees or more. I have read all over the web about this topic and have not found a response from a creditable source to one way or the other. My good friend says because the compressor oil gets so cold that it mixes with the refrigerant then it wrecks the compressor. Another source said: Newer freezers don't use freon. The newer refrigerants is tetrafluoroethane and it is less sensitive to the effects of cold unless the temps get down to below 15° F. in your garage. You can remedy this by getting an inexpensive "barn" or greenhouse heater that will come on only when the temp in the space drops to near freezing. Another source: I called a few manufacturers (GE, Frigidaire, etc) and all said that they are not meant to be operated in cold temperatures (the threshold ranged from 31* - 60*). I find this very odd because the overwhelming "layperson" opinion from my internet searches has been that the freezer will be perfectly fine, but all the salesmen and manufactures say don't do it. I'm guessing that they are just being cautious so as to minimize warranty claims. Five other sources have two to five year old freezers in Canada, Wyoming, Long Island NY, ... in a screened in back porch or equal. No problems. The expensive "outdoor" freezer just has a $35 heater that comes on at under 30 degrees, to just heat the compressor area. Can't find a single source where the freezer failed in cold weather. So, what does HD have to say about this subject?
Asked by: RobX
On my Whirlpool Upright, the heat exchangers are under the "skin" top, and sides. As long as you keep breathing space between these areas, you should be fine. I go one step further myself, and have my freezer setting on 2'" blocks. One on each corner so the unit can breath underneath. However, in winter, I would remove the blocks to conserve heat underneath.

16.0 cu. ft. Upright Freezer in White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very energy efficent! Uses so much less electric then the old one it will pay for it's self in about 3 year. Good price and included delivery. If they would have had one in on display in the local store it would have made the decision easier but all in all I am very pleased with the whole experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great freezer It's not loud at all, i was hesitant buying it when some of the reviews said it was loud. We have it plugged in near our living room and the light typical humming sound is very faint. Great product for the price too. We had home depot deliver it and everything went pretty smooth. We've only had it for a month now and haven't had any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new 16 cu ft freezer I love all the space in my new freezer, I was able to bake and store lots of Christmas cookies. I love the added features of storage in the door and the light, so that I can easily find things, even when they are at the back of the freezer. Because it's "Energy Star," I feel confident that taking advantage of sale prices is not being lost due to the cost of running. It is quiet and freezes items quickly. I chose a manual defrost freezer. The frost build up has been minimal even though I opened the door a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the size i of the freezer and it minimizes use of space I love this upright freezer when you open the door you readily can view what is in there, unlike the chest freezers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straight forward freezer We've only had this unit a few weeks - so far, so good. Runs quiet - nice and cold. The only thing that I'm not wild about is the slanted bottom storage area. I'm sure they had to do that in order to fit the compressor etc. in. The rest of the storage space is easy to use & access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I've had this freezer for a couple weeks and it still works. I was happy with the price, the delivery, the features (being simple).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOA This fridge didn't work from the get go. After care reading the user manual it suggested that it could take 5-8hours to freez the 1st time around. It never did with just a bottle water in it two weeks layer it has still to do what a freezer does and freeze. Still waiting on a replacement that I don't think I even want anymore. Ordered on the 4th and here we are on the 22nd and no replacement.
