I purchased the Kenmore 21 cu. ft. Upright Freezer to replace an older deep freezer and immediately noticed the positives to owning this machine. This freezer is extremely spacious, which allows me to buy large quantities of beef when it's on sale and not worry about it going bad quickly. I have stored over 25 lbs of meat in this freezer over a 3 month period and it was as fresh as the day I purchased it without any freezer burn. The only downside I have found to this freezer is that the motor runs frequently, which could lead to it going bad sooner than my previous freezers, but it's still going strong after 5 years . Even though this freezer runs frequently it doesn't consume a lot of power I was able to shave $10 off my energy bill. I don't have a need to use the lock on the door, but it is a nice feature that works very well. I would definitely recommend the Kenmore 21 cu. ft. because it can store large portions of food and is energy efficient.
I just purchased this freezer and followed the manufacturers cleaning instructions. Mild soap & water with soft cloth. There are scratches, in fact you cannot even lightly touch without scratching. It appears the finish did not harden properly or something else is wrong. You should be able to touch or clean you appliances.
We really like the size but it is loud.
Unfortunately, my Kenmore upright freezer of 23 yrs finally gave out. I just purchased the Kenmore elite and have high hopes this one will also last me 20 yrs plus!! Never even thought of purchasing another brand.
Purchased this freezer 6 years ago new and now it doesn't work. I had an appliance company come in and look at it and they said the there was a compressor oil clog and this model is notorious for this. The repair is very expensive so it's not worth fixing. Very disappointed that a freezer can not last more than 6 years.
Freezer has operated without a flaw. Price was same as much smaller freezers. Delivery of freezer occurred as promised.
Worked fine for two years then started making a loud grinding noise when the compressor is on and it's not keeping everything frozen. Don't buy unless you also get a master service agreement or are handy and want to spend time on freezer repair.
