Freezer went out after the warranty expired. This is NOT a durable product. Come to find out, you can't put this unit in your garage or basement--it must go in your kitchen or someplace inconvenient. The problem is, nobody I know does that. Deep freezers normally go in a basement or garage. Of course I didn't read the manual to find this out because I just expected it to work. I would rather have just paid more money, and bought a freezer that didn't need to be coddled. And of course, there is no warning about this when you buy it, because if there were, fewer people would purchase it. My garage doesn't get colder than 45, or hotter than 90, yet it still went out.

Hello,

We are sorry to hear that your freezer is no longer working. This model is designed for in-home use only which includes the basement however if it is placed in a garage that is not climate controlled then it would void the manufacturer's warranty.

    The freezer is compact for the useable cubic footage. The exterior and interior are clean — without frivolous details. It skids into position easily. It frosts up inside too quickly!

    FITS IN A HATCHBACK!!! YAY!!!!!! my freezer is from 2014 and still going strong. quiet, keeps a steady temperature (i keep a thermometer in there to monitor, i also do this in my fridge too, to keep track if its starting to fail, you dont want to find out after your food has gone bad), so i know that it keeps a great temp. i have the dial turned at about 75% and that stays at about -5 to -10. 50% keeps it -5 to 0. i never turned it up to 100% but i imagine that would probably put you at -10 to -15. the freezer is very quiet, works great, and doesnt freezer burn my food. the seal is very good, i dont see any air leaks. im very happy and definitely would purchase again. i was happy with this one because instead of it being taller in height and wider in depth, it was shorter in height narrower in depth (longer in length to make up the space) which meant i could actually put it in the back of my car's hatchback to get it home!!!! the other brands are too wide on the depth measurement and wouldnt fit. its still the same cubic feet, its just a little longer instead of wider. i know this has nothing to do with the freezer, but if you dont have a truck, you can still get a freezer if you get this one!!! none of the other models would fit!!

      Homebrewers: if you're looking to build a keezer, this chest freezer will hold four Ball Lock Kegs on the floor without a collar, and with room for a 5lb. CO2 tank on the hump. Igloo 7.2' is $100 cheaper at Sam's but will only hold 3 cornies.

        Cute Freezer. DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE GOING TO PUT IT IN THE GARAGE!! This freezer worked great for the first few months. Small and compact for small spaces. Stopped working a few months shy of the warranty end. I called to have it repaired under the warranty and they said because it was in the garage and not in the house the warranty was void. This needs to be in a temperature-controlled environment. Putting this in your garage will void the warranty. Do not buy this if you are looking for a freezer for your garage.

        Hello Deeds, we are sorry your unit has failed, Our units are meant to be used indoors, factory specifications note the refrigerator will function properly at a temperature above 45 and under 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the room temperature gets out the range, it can affect the cycling of the compressor (cooling process), by giving false readings to the units internal thermostat. Danby recommends selecting a location with reasonable year round temperatures. It should be noted that this refrigerator is intended for indoor residential use and exposure to extreme temperatures may damage the appliance and void the warranty. Danby
