6.5 upright freezer

After reading many reviews on this one & an Igloo 6.9 (which had many bad reviews) decided to go with the Kenmore. The one thing that we really wanted was to be able to have the door open on other side. Spoke with someone at our store & they told me that it is not an option to do that. Told her about comments on review, that some were told they needed to ask when ordering. She said that was just a general response but that one doesn't have that option. So we ordered it online. Just picked it up 2 days ago. Again based on reviews I new enough to ask when picking up if we can plug in right away & he said no to wait 24hrs(especially since we brought home ourselves & had to lay it down). So that was very helpful to know that ahead of time. So we brought it home & I was reading the book & to our surprise it said you can reverse the door. With my husband being handy he switched the door & now we can open from the right side. That just really makes this a perfect freezer for us. Size is just perfect so now if freezer stays running I will be in heaven. Yeah. Thanks to everyone who sends reviews they can be very helpful.

condenser failed after 2 years, not serviceable

We bought this almost 2 years ago. It was a good freezer until we noticed water at the bottom of it one day. It would just click every once in awhile. We had a service contract on it and ended up having Sears in to repair it. It ended up being a failed condenser however it was deemed by Sears repair to be a model that cannot be serviced. We're now looking for an American made freezer from Sears.

Failed after 1.5 years - buy the protection agreement!!!

|

We loved this freezer when we first got it. It fit well in our small space and provided plenty of room for our bulk food and home cooked lunches. Sadly, the condenser failed after only 1.5 years. If you buy this unit, buy the protection agreement! It was a "non-repairable" failure and the unit had to be replaced. The normal warranty only covers 1 year, so I am very thankful we had the additional coverage. It also paid for the majority of our food loss, though not my dozens of hours of wasted cooking time. It's a shame it didn't last - the size and looks were perfect for our space. Sears: please use higher quality components!!! We're hoping for better luck with our replacement freezer (this time we chose a different model).

False advertising

|

This freezer and the 5.8 cu ft do not have the quick freeze feature as advertised and Kenmore has not changed their ads. I purchased this freezer for that feature and returned it. Bait and switch?

Nice small upright freezer

|

Doesn't take a lot of space. The ad on line says in one place where it says it is frost free by feature highlights under the blue numbers but it is not frost free.So You need to be aware of that.

Product is good

|

Even though the sales rep told me it is frost free, it is not.
I was space prohibited which is why the 6.5 is my only option.
The capacity of the freezer is sufficient for a single person and the shelving/areas to put food is good, albeit would have liked a shelf in the door for small items.
Follow instructions and let freeze completely on high setting for the first 24 hours and then decrease as needed.
All in all, it will suit my needs.

Perfect Size

|

We needed a little extra room for frozen items other than our GE profile refrigerator. This was the perfect size to put off in one of the corners of the kitchen and not be too intrusive with size and noise. Sales people were great but Pick-up personnel were rude and didn't even help load it on to the truck. Good thing I could lift it myself or I would still be standing there in the parking lot.

Broke within a month

|

The size and price are great. However, this item stopped working just short of a month after purchase. We have been waiting 3 months for a replacement only to find out the item is not going to be restocked. We now have to settle for a smaller unit or pay extra for a larger item.

Great freezer for the price

|

Great midsize freezer to keep the overflow from the kitchen refigerator in. Big enough to hold a lot of stuff, but small / slim enough to not eat up a lot of space. Very happy with this unit.

Generic freezer - keeps food frozne

|

The item is great, Sears is okay. The item needed to be ordered as Sears doesn't have a big warehouse. It took a week to arrive. I was not notified of arrival. Warehouse personnel were FANTASTIC!! But the freezer arrived with a dent in the door. Not worth my time to raise an issue, fix, or replace it. It's a freezer.

The freezer is great, cooled quickly, holds a steady temperature, wide adjustment range, and is very, very quiet. The door is difficult to reverse and the instructions are wrong. It does reverse, even though the salesman said "No, it doesn't reverse, no stand freezers do".

Good Freeze

Excellent freezer!!! I researched and compared prices with other appliance stores. I like the model because is a stand up freezer and it has plenty of room for my intended use. The price is another reason for the purchase.

freezer

|

This is the second freezer we got from Sears. The first one did not work at all we had it for 4 weeks without it working. A repairman came, had to order a part it came1 week later it still did not work. Over $85.00 worth of food had to be thrown away. We had to return defected freezer ourselves. We picked up another freezer, this so far is working.
Years ago Sears had a good name. That was a long time ago

Very nice Freezer

|

We were looking for a freezer that was upright so it didn't take up a lot of room. We got this one, plugged it in and within 3 hours it was all frozen. Saves us a lot of money with freezing meat and keeping bulk frozen food in it.

poor quality

|

The same freezer it replaced lasted 2.5 years. You need to produce quality and not products that are supposed to last only 10 years

Perfect size

I had a lift up lid freezer where you had to dig into to find your food. This Kenmore freezer shows all the food and fits great in my kitchen.

Love this!

|

Have had this for more than a year - still haven't needed to defrost it. Holds lots of food and everything is easily visible. Freezer makes NO noise at all. Ice cubes can me made on the top shelf (or flat packs of popsicles). Seal on door is very tight. Energy bill barely moved. This is just perfect for a small household!

Surprising Good

|

Wasnt sure what to expect from a small upright freezer but after purchasing a small side by side refrigerator I needed the extra freezer space. Im quite happy that I bought this freezer. I have had the freezer now for 2 weeks and so far I love it. Plenty of room for all the extras- beans from the garden, home made salsa, spaghetti sauce, etc. Keeps all the food solidly frozen and runs quietly.
What isnt mentioned and what the installers/delivery guys fail to tell you per the instructions in the booklet is not to plug in the freezer for 2 hours after delivery. It says plugging in too soon can damage the freezer element. The delivery guys plugged the freezer in immediately. Fortunately I read the instructions in time and pulled out the plug, allowing it to sit for the required 2 hours. Maybe thats why some of the buyers had trouble with their freezer. In any case I am very pleased so far and give the freezer 5 stars.
