Summary: We loved this freezer for the first three years we had it. It's a great size, not expensive to run and can really hold a lot. Unfortunately, when it randomly decided to defrost itself and all the food inside, we had fit a lot of food in there. I choke when I think of the amount of money we lost - probably nearly when we paid for the freezer itself. It ended up turning back on. Great. But it can't be trusted so I guess we'll be buying another freezer. Buyer beware.
Summary: A freezer has saved us so much money by giving us that extra room needed to freeze the food items for winter that we wouldn't have been able to keep otherwise. Buying in larger portions and being able to freeze the extra is wonderful. Being upright is so much easier than having to bend over and dig through a lift top one.
Summary: Very disappointing that this freezer only lasted a year and a half. It was never moved, and stored in our basement in a closed storage room (with another fridge). It looks fine.. but does not freeze anymore. The lowest temperature we can get now is 50 degrees. It will run but just won't freeze. We tried all the "tricks" and checked the pipes, etc. Must be a compressor or some other major issues.

Summary: We bought our freezer at least 6 years ago and have had no problems with it, except that it is a bit small when we get neighbor's things to add to ours! Love that it uses the least possible energy for its size, and also that it is auto defrost.
Summary: Had this freezer for 2 years and it went out on me. Called the Frigidaire Company,so they said nothing we can do except recommend a repairman. after being out $535.00 I was not going to pay a repairman another $200 or $300 hundred dollars on a lemon . Frigidaire will not be in my home again because I find they don't stand behind their product.
Summary: We bought this based on good reviews. It was fine for 1 1/2 years when it stopped freezing. Not worth fixing for the price paid. We plan to avoid the Frigidaire brand completely now since a new refrigerator we bought recently for over $800 is having issues after only one month! Guess their products have really gone downhill.
Summary: I needed a moderate sized freezer with shelves so things didn't get burried in the bottom of the freezer well. This freezer has done a great job after three months and keeps everything rock hard. The shelving works great too and everything is easy to find. Why only four stars?? Although I highly recommend it, you can hear it when the compressor kicks on (which is rare) but it is quiet enough that you can't hear it from the next room.
Summary: This freezer does the trick; it freezes. I had to set it almost to the highest setting in order to get the temperature slightly below zero. The factory setting wasn't cold enough. Of course, I had to buy a thermometer in order to find out how cold it was getting inside. It's a little loud, so I am glad it's in our garage. I love the size though. We have a regular size two car garage, and there is plenty of room for it and both our cars.
