Lacks cooling cools
Even on the lowest setting, my ice cream is melting. I thought the freezer was working the first couple of weeks, but it turns out that the temperature in my garage was so cold (50F), it was helping it getting by. Now that the outside temp is up to about 70F, It simply isn't working as a freezer.This freezer is bad by design. It completely lacks a condenser coil (the part that dissipates heat - see pic where one condenser line runs out and back under the fridge with no coil). The compressor has been running non-stop and is so hot to the touch that it is heating up the metal above to scolding temps. Even the factory insulation melted off the condenser line. Do not even think about buying this freezer. Absolute garbage. And the so called Temperature Alarm, does not exist or does not work, because the temp is maybe 30F inside (a jug of water at the bottom is barely frozen) and no alarm has gone off.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] No need to slave over a hot stove to can my Garden's Bounty.....Blanch, seal and freeze and I am set with my organic fruits and veggies from my Garden of Care and Love. Love the design and additional ice maker feature too!
by Heaven's Garden
Just what I needed
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've only had the freezer for a little over two weeks, but it's just what I needed to keep all my specialty flours and grains for baking in one place. (The garage.) I also keep my yeast, spices and fruit curds and chocolate ganache in this freezer. It freezes fast and I love that it has an alarm to let me know if the temperature gets too warm.
by Cakeshopok
Very nice freeze
I looked around and so many of the freezer brands looked the same and cheaply built. The Whirlpool seemed to be constructed quite a bit better than the others. The Whirlpool freezer I bought replaced a 38 year old Montgomery Wards brand that I'm sure was built by Whirlpool. The old one was still working, but we had had an issue with it and decided it was time to replace. Over all the previous years, all we ever did was defrost every year or so and replace one light switch and some bulbs. Otherwise it was totally trouble free.

Great freezer
Fits the 1/2 cow and hog we ordered for winter. I love it!
Great freezer not to heavy and very spacious. Looking at getting another as we have triplets. Once they are older will have to get another for sure
