Comments about Frigidaire 16.7 Cu. Ft. Upright Freezer - White:
I was forced to buy another freezer when our old Kenmore went out after 14 yrs. We had a full freezer of beef. Where I live, there are not too many options for shopping so I purchased this freezer. I liked that it had the temp outside so I didn't have to mess with a manual dial and put in a thermometer to check the temp. My old freezer had the coils built into each shelf so no need for a fan. This freezer has a light that is very nice to have. After plugging in the new freezer, the fan roar'd really loud, but I figured it would settle down after cooling to the set temp and then would be quiet. It doesn't. It runs probably 80% of the time and now we have to shut the pantry room door to keep the house quiet. The freezer also builds a huge brick of ice on the top middle portion of the door. I have no idea why as the seal is in perfect shape. I will have to call service to come out and fix this as I have to keep wiping it down or it will build up enough the door probably won't shut. It keeps a very constant temp and is easy to get to your items on the shelves. Overall, I give this a 2.5-3.0 on the 5 scale. I'm sure they will fix the seal, but the fan is so loud, I can't overcome that for my score. Freezers should be quiet not loud like a dishwasher.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

the new freezer is a pleasure to use. it is easy, convenient, maintains the temperature quite well. the interior layout is well planned and practical.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This being July 18, 2013, the freezer was delivered 5 days ago. The freezer is quiet. It has nice features, particularly the slide-out drawers. I left it on the factory setting of 0-degrees F, and everything in the freezer seems OK. The freezer info states that the sides will get warm because of the compressor and evaporator coils. This is understandable. However, I knocked it down a star on design because there appears to be no insulation in the door. The outside of the door is quite cool, which tells me this is where the cold air escapes.
Incredibly noisy. Do not purchase if using in any room attached to your house. Door seals so tight, whole freezer moves when opening the door. Left the door slightly open, and the alarm never went off. Apart from that, great freezer.
So happy with my new purchase!

About Me Avid Cook
This freezer is the perfect size and I love the features--especially being able to set the temp on the outside of the door.
Not in House
Very loud-sounds like small plane taking off.
Hope it lasts like the Kelvinator we had!
By tricky dick
We purchased the Frigidaire from Lowes when we decided to stop manually defrosting our 40+ year-old Kelvinator!!! The slide-out trays are a bit cumbersome and you have to watch that they don't fall off the slide-rails. I've noticed ice crystals forming on the back wall of the freezer, don't know why as it is supposed to be frost-free. It does keep the items well frozen. The digital display always indicates 0 degrees so I'm hoping that is true! I sure hope it saves on our electric bill compared to the old Kelvinator!!!
Here's my problem...
I just bought my latest Frigidaire, because its 11 year old sibling died with a full load of food -- Luckily, Lowe's took care of me in less than 24 hours. I purchased another one because I have/had faith in them. Sounds contradictory, but read on... THE PROS: Since it has a light inside, I can retire the flashlight; like the pull out baskets, especially useful for bread and vegi packs; alarms for temp. & door ajar great!. THE CONS: A 36% increase, in price, from 11 years ago; Though this model is "Energy Star Rated", I am going to save a HUGE $4.00 extra per year (Yes, I saved the Energy Guide tags!), compared to its retired sibling; would have liked four shelves, including an adjustable one, instead of three; digitial nice, but not practicle, since we all know how computers like to fail, when you least expect it; plastic lock key - no (I still have my metal one, so I put the plastic one in the manual, for "Just in Case).
After 27 years of use and manual defrosting, we paid a lower price with store discount, energy-star rebate, and recycling rebate, and get more cubic feet, reduced monthly energy costs, and frost-free operation, with more practical shelves and door storage.
Just Keeps Working!
This freezer is located in our unheated garage, and no matter what the outside temperature, anywhere from -10 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, it keeps the food at a perfect 0 degrees. Ours has a digital readout of the temperature inside, and an alarm should a child not close the door after getting his popsicle! It's an Energy Star, so hasn't made much of a dent in our electric bills. We're very happy we purchased this model.
