chest freezer
Purchased this about 3 weeks ago. Runs VERY quietly. Don't even notice it is in the same room. We got the 7.2 cu. ft. freezer. We purchased 4 Sterilite plastic containers (approx.15 1/2" long, 11 3/4" wide, 9 1/4"deep), with little green handles that lay flat on each side of top of container from Walmart and they fit perfectly in the freezer. Stack 2 and 2. The containers also have hand holes on each end for easier lifting. The containers make the food SO much more accessible in the chest freezer. I put frozen vegs. in one, meat in one, etc. and lift out the container that I need to look in and close the freezer while I find what I want. I still have so much more room left over. Thankful for my freezer!

If Loses Power, Won't Automatically Restart
This freezer worked fine for us until we had a momentary power outage in the middle of the night. Discovered the next day that everything in the freezer (all our produce we had frozen from our garden) was thawed. Reading the fine print in the manual, I discovered that if the unit loses power, you have to turn it off and wait 3 to 5 minutes before turning it back on or it won't restart. Isn't that a great design? Be warned!!

only lasted 5 months

Everything was ok for 5 months except that some frost was building up at the back wall at the top on the right side. Then one day we noticed melted ice cream all over. So my husband turned it to max and put a thermometer in it (that's after cleaning up the ice cream mess). The next morning it was only 34 degrees. So called Sears and they came out and said it was some kind of sensor thing. So we are getting a new one, but wondering if we should upgrade to a different model.

7.2 cu. ft. freezer Kenmore

Was concerned that freezer would not be big enough being as I had not seen the freezer due to ordering on line . Freezer was perfect size for a small garden, and buying your meats on sale , Will post more on product as to operation at end of summer !! But so far * GREAT* I would recommend buying service protection plan ,, Just in case !! I do not doubt the product ,,, just safety precaution.. what's 6 cent a day !!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

freezer

Just installed it seems to be doing exactly as it should. Except in order to open the lid there has to be quite a bit of food in it, and it has to be closed for quite a while for the air to equalize to be able to open it easily. Seems to me that that fact should be stated in the owners manual. Had to actually use a tiny crowbar to open it at first????? thanks Paul

Nice size freezer

Fit perfectly in the spot I have. Turned on and ran great from the start. Was down to 10degrees in only 5-10 minutes. A second hanging basket would be nice though.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Working like a charm

First deep freezer and I love it. There has been no over the top issues at all and I love having the additional freezer space. Frost collects at the top rear but nothing that can't be removed by hand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great!

No set up required. No exposed coils to keep clean. Manufacturer recommends plugging the unit into a non-GFI socket which we do not have in the garage. So we need to keep checking the unit is on and running.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

No issues

Had this for about 2 weeks and no problems. Cools very fast and lots of space! Also this isn't a very heavy unit, and still retains good temperature stablization.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Buy

This freezer was one of the best that I had looked for and at the best price. I have space for the deer from this year and some of the elk I still have with room for more. If you are looking for a freezer that isn't that big but still holds a lot, this is your buy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Have had no problems with this freezer. Works well in a small apartment. Very quiet. No problems with opening the lid like some people claimed they had. Will open the drain hole if this problem developed.

Great price

Seems to be well-made and takes up minimum space. I like the onlight and temperature control on the outside front. I can reach to the very bottom of the inside making defrosting and organizing easier. No interior light. Enclosed coils, so no tricky back dusting needed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great deep freezer

I can't believe I finally got me a deep freezer. I been looking around quit sometime for one now used new it didn't matter as long I found one to fit my needs and that's what this ken more 7.2 chest freezer did. It was so simple to put on layaway and paid half one week and got the other the next and was on store waiting on me. With my budget didn't think was possible but was. Works great a brand always trusted by family and as soon as I got it I filled it up. Thank you sears and makers of ken more plan to do a lot more business in the soon future for more appliances needed in my home.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
