Summary: Made loud banging noises in the middle of the night after we plugged it in. I read about this happening, but didn’t think it actually would. After all, there were already so many positive reviews and the freezer was fairly cheap. Amazon allowed me to give it back. Won’t be taking a chance on things for a while.
Summary: No inside dimensions in the specifications so I figured I try it anyways for my application. The self in there takes up over a quarter of the inside so I did not even come close to working for me.
Summary: As some have stated, some units make a loud banging sound when compressor kicks in. The first one I received had this problem, luckily I had not disposed of box to return it. The noise would occur intermittently at first and after a week of use, would not stop, no matter how much effort was put into trying get it perfectly level. The replacement I received works just fine with basic, crude levelling adjustments of front legs.
Summary: We wanted a freezer in our bedroom for icepacks and this freezer makes a horrid death rattle sound out of the blue. Unfortunately, even though it is guaranteed for a year, the shipping costs alone make it unfeasible to return. Don't buy this!
Summary: Keep it on steady ground otherwise it will make noise that makes it sound like the freezer will explode! It meets my needs perfectly! It's compact and gives me the extra storage I need. Update: It's like every morning I wake up and every day, I am stuck listening to hear the freezer making the awful noise. It's like it's very own drum set. I don't recommend this.
Summary: When we plugged the freezer in, it started making a loud banging noise. The noise would intermittently return every time the compressor would kick in. I saw a similar review like this one, but chose to take a chance on the item anyway, as it was a good price and there were some people who liked it. Sometimes stuff just doesn't work right. Amazon made it right and allowed me to return the freezer, so that is good with me. Also, to review the locking mechanism..
