Worst freezerI bought this second hand from a friend who got it new and only kept it a few months. I know why. It freezes up constantly! Even my mother who lived through manual defrost freezers says that she has never seen anything like it! The frost builds up on the food to the point that you can’t remove it. It gets so thick so fast that I can’t keep up with it. I have had it about three years trying all the tricks manufacturer suggest and others. I am getting rid of it! I hate to sell it to someone else knowing that it will be nothing but heartache!

Seems solid but frost builds up on shelvesWe bought this freezer to replace a 10-year-old Frigidaire that no longer kept things frozen. With a failing freezer on my mind, the main feature I was looking for in a freezer was reliability and longevity. For this reason I wanted to avoid electronic controls as much as possible, seeing electronics as just another part to fail. There is no indication of electronics in this model; it has no digital display or buttons, just a simple old-fashioned dial. I guess it's possible that there are still electronics hidden inside.This freezer does have a fairly serious drawback. The cooling coils run through the wire shelving. This of course causes the shelves to be the coldest part of the interior. Therefore, the condensation/frost gathers on the shelves instead of the walls of the unit, and it seems to build up very quickly. (This is not an auto-defrosting model; that's another feature I wished to avoid due to its additional energy use. Consumer Reports gave this model a good energy rating.) So anytime you get food out, it will most likely be covered with a shower of crystals from brushing the shelf above.The door takes a strong tug to open; apparently the freezer seals itself by vacuum. I think it may be a bit noisier than some, but it sits in a corner of my home office and does not bother me at all.We've owned it for about a year now, and it has had no problems; I hope it'll go 20 more!
