Kenmore Chest Freezer – Stackable Storage that Fits
This Kenmore Elite chest freezer 1658 balances rapid freezing with long-term storage and smart organization so it’s ready to load with groceries, garden harvests and big catches alike. A spacious 24.9 cu. ft. interior gives you plenty of room to stock up, while its horizontal orientation means plenty of stackable storage. Designed to deliver icy temperatures and lock tight for energy efficiency when you’re away, it’s perfect for your kitchen, basement or garage.

  • From meats and fish to fresh vegetables from the garden, Quick Freeze speeds the preservation process by dropping temperatures rapidly, locking in both color and flavor.
  • Lift-out baskets keep smaller, daily necessities within reach to simplify storage and make it easy to move when it’s time to reach deep.
  • Built to quickly customize your freezer's interior, movable dividers help easily separate items, add support for more stable stacking, and provide faster access to frozen foods.
  • A combination of flashing lights and alarm sounds lets you know when freezer temperatures are on the rise, helping prevent spoiled food and melted ice cream.
  • Bright interior lighting provides clear visibility that helps you find food, ingredients, treats and more quickly.

This is the one to buy!

Biggest available through retail stores period. Great $/ft ratio. I leave it set at 5 degrees instead of 0 and it still keeps things more frozen than my upright fridge/freezer. Works perfectly. Have owned other uprights and chest freezers and this is best.

I purchased the Kenmore Elite because I thought I was buying a quality product. It looks nice but looks are deceiving. I pulled this thing out of the box and plugged it in. It immediately flashed CE ( communication error ) and the manual instructs me to call technical service. The tech guy just left and handed me the receipt for repairs ( covered under warranty) $634.00 was the total. Fascinating since I'm looking at a brand new on the website right now for 659. He had to order 2 circuit boards and a wiring harness to be sure it got repaired the first time since I have 2000.00 worth of beef in it. Unfortunately for me I had to pick up my beef at the same time I picked up the freezer so I have no other place for it. Fortunately the thing still freezes on fast freeze or I would be up the creek since it took a week to get the thing in the first time I ordered it. My point in this whole thing is you would think they would plug the **** thing in and check it before they shipped it out.

Kenmore Freezer 24.6 cubic foot


Working great. Love the Alarm and blinking light if the freezer is cooler than it should be. Negative: thin outer shell, dents easily, so far it has not had an issue keeping this frozen, but I am concerned as it appears not to seal when closed - easily opens unlike the old freezer that 'suctioned' shut when you closed it and you had to give it a tug to open.

New Chest Freezer


Quick delivery, easy set-up, simple functions to start, froze quickly, and holds a lot of food! For a family of 9 it's a wonderful addition to our food storage and supplies. Hope it lasts for twenty years now!

This chest freezer has wonderful features that we love.


The partitions allow the food to be separated into food groups such as vegetables, pork, beef, poultry, fruit, etc. It is helpful in locating the desired item and does not mix the food left if it falls into the next area. The sliding baskets hold the most frequent needed food at the top of the freezer. In addition, the temperature is displayed on the top of the chest so that a quick glance can assure the food is frozen.

3 One of These


Hard to beat the price, so far the other two are running strong. This is my third. The other 2 are only one year old so it is hard to say how good they are in only a year. I will be needing 2 more in the next 12 months...hopefully later than sooner.

Unit doesn't seal.


Purchased in March, just plugged it in on 6/26/14. Received our meat on the 27th. It's been 5 days since it was plugged in and it seems cold (our meat was frozen solid so could have helped) but the lid doesn't seal and the regular food (muffins, ice cream, jam, etc) are soft. I've had a Sears freezer for the past 30 years (still have an old Kelvinator) and believed it to be a good product. We'll see what the repair man has to say. Very disappointed.

Best freezer to cook a turkey


I had this freezer for 13 months then the thermostat ( can be replaced for a mere $68 plus $15.99 shipping and $4 tax and no labor included) went bad and in a matter of 12 hours everything went from a deep frozen state; to a turkey that was above the compressor that was actually cooking because the compressor didn't shut off (which made it like an oven) and the alarm never worked and hundreds of dollars of food wasted, i write this awesome review.

Nice freezer, failed expensively and annoyingly but not devastatingly


Got the freezer 18 months ago and did not buy any extended warranty. I expect it to last decades since it is such a basic item.

Last week the low battery alarm went off. I put in a new battery but it won't reset. The audible alarm is migraine inducing and won't go away.

Had service out to look at it. They called the manufacturer who said. "Oh yes, that is the control board. That will be $430 + including labor to replace."

From looking at other reviews, I see this is not a rare problem with these freezers.

So I either spend 450 on a new board with a 90 day warranty.

Disable the alarm and live with a defective freezer.

Or replace it, I could get a brand new one at Sears for a mere $690 or something like that.

For now the alarm speaker is disabled, but I am still grumpy.

I say not devastating, because the freezer function still works fine. No food was spoiled in the making of this particular debacle.

hope it works as well as the old one


We had an old Kenmore that lasted over twenty years. It was running all the time and using up power. This new one is longer and not as deep as the old one the dividers are nice and the display of the temp.

Fantastic Freezer!


This freezer is huge! Great for buying bulk! I live out in the country and I need to have lots on hand to choose from. I love the fact that it has an alarm in case of power outages,also a concern living out in the boonies! Love it!

died after just over 2 months


Well it's big and you can fit a lot of stuff in it and that's about it. Ours died after just over two months of owning it and with having $1000+ worth of meat in it they may not take it back and will have to deal with the manufacturer (because we didn't purchase additional warranty)or if they do it will still be a few days before they can get a new one my husband is still on the phone with the General manager The sliding shelves are nice accept they have to be in certain spots otherwise the lid doesn't close all the way and you loose the cold and get frost build up so needless to say a little flaw in the design as well as the lock it hits the plastic that it slides out of to latch so the hole they made for it is either to small or off to the side. Will only get another one if I have to but would not buy again.

great room!


Bought this to replace two freezers, delivery scheduling was a pain. Delivery fellows were good, although they could of taken their shoes off or used covers since they had to go across the carpet to get where the freezer was going. Didn't catch the dent until after a couple of days, but the salesman took care of it. Overall happy with the freezer, really like the dividers.

Plenty of room


We have enjoyed this freezer. The controls are easy to operate and the bins and organizers make it much more convenient to use than the older chest freezers. We also like the alarms, its nice to know if the door got left open or the power to the freezer went out.

We have been happy with this freezer. Controls are easy to operate and the bins and organizers are very convenient. I like that it has the door open and loss of power alarms.
