Product Description

Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer - Spacious, Functional

Designed with efficiency in mind, the Kenmore 8042 upright freezer has plenty of space for your food storage needs. With four fixed shelves, five movable door bins and a slide out basket, it can hold up to 721 pounds of frozen food. A soft-freeze zone keeps your bread, butter, ice cream and whipped toppings at a slightly warmer temperature for quicker consumption. An interior light allows you to see the freezer's contents with ease, and a security lock keeps small children from opening its door.

  • A spacious interior means better organization, easier access and more storage options, which makes this freezer perfect for pizzas, ice cream, fish, meats and bulk buys.
  • Slide-out baskets keep smaller, daily necessities within reach to simplify storage and make moving easy when it’s time to reach deep.
  • An on-door Soft Freeze Zone is slightly warmer than the rest of the freezer, making sure your ice cream is always ready to eat.
  • An integrated security lock increases safety, helps deter theft and ensures a tight seal for a consistently cool storage environment that saves energy.
  • Adjustable shelving delivers flexibility and customization that adapts to your needs, whether it be storing bulk buys, catches from the last fishing trip or party supplies.

Energy efficient, COLDER THAN ICE, and huge....what else do you need?
I purchased this freezer some time last year so my girlfriend and I could stock up on more bulk frozen foods than the fridge/freezer would leave room for, and so I could save a buck or two by buying beef in whole primals, cutting them into steaks and roasts myself, and freezing them. I specifically wanted as much capacity in an upright as possible, but a good and affordable price as well. I also wanted something extremely energy efficient and manual defrost, because automatic defrost freezers both... A: Consume way more electricity....almost double! And... B: Due to the automatic defrost cycle, the temperature inside the freezer is less stable, which contributes to freezer burn. So far, I've had it for almost a year and I haven't defrosted it yet. There's a little ice buildup on some of the shelves, but it's not near as bad as these people are making it sound. If your freezer has excessive frost buildup, you need to make sure your door is aligned properly and that the seal is making a good seal. Electricity use is minimal....my electricity bills haven't gone up since purchasing it, and being manual defrost you're only using electricity to make the inside cold. (Automatic defrost units waste energy heating up the evaporator coils to melt off condensation that has frozen to them) This freezer gets COLD! My thermometer in the door regularly registers -20F, and I'm sure if I kept it on a shelf instead it would read even lower! Granted, it's on the coldest setting, but even commercial units struggle to get this low. Oh, and there's a ton of space inside. Like, tons and tons of space. I have not managed to buy enough stuff to fill this freezer yet, even after a year. I have had absolutely zero issues whatsoever, the thing just works for me. I used a coupon and my Sears card and got it for about $425. Not bad considering the fact that anything comparable would be $600+ on sale.

Extreme Frost build-up
I purchased this item about a year ago to replace a similar freezer we'd had for 15 years. The week it was installed I was shocked at the amount of frost build-up. Nearly half of the top shelf was filled with ice. I got rid of the ice and hoped that was just an installation fluke, but there is a continuous ice build-up in this freezer that makes parts of the freezer unusable. Additionally, the freezer is poorly designed so that even though it is slightly larger than my last freezer, it holds fewer items. This freezer really needs additional shelves and/or storage bins to make the space more efficient.

Great Value Manual Defrost

Excellent value and one of the only manual defrost freezers I could find. We have had this freezer for 16 months and this is the first time we had to defrost the unit. The first unit I received was kind of noisy and had some shipping scratches on it. Sears replaced the unit with out any hassle excellent customer support. Second freezer was much quieter. We had to have the manual defrost because my wife was saving her extra best milk and it thaw / freeze cycle of an auto defrost would not work. We do have the freezer located in a pantry so noise is not as big of an issue for us as it might be for some people. Very cold great door seal. Would love a digital tempature display on outside of unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Frosts Fast DO NOT PURCHASE

Consider this your fair warning, this freezer immediately built up with frost on the top shelf and ceiling within 3 days of use. Easy to purchase, very hard to return with Sears. Spend the few extra dollars and get a better quality product.

Awesome deal

I am amazed at how big and how quite this freezer is. I bought it to replace my 25 yr. old Amana Upright freezer. It is about 8 " taller than my old one, but just removed a shelf and it fit fine. I love the spaces in the doors and the warmer area for ice-cream. I

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Would have been 5 star but Sears delivery service is absolutely horrible.

Very spacious with great inside design. Sears beat every competitor on the price of a freezer this size by almost $175.

Nice freezer

We have had the freezer for a couple of weeks. It is a bit noisy but not too bad. The door seals well and the freezer is very roomy. It is definitely doing its job. Customer service has been great. No complaints with the delivery. We even called customer service because the price we paid in the store was higher than the online price. They took care of us without a problem

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great buy, spacious

We bought this to replace a smaller chest freezer. So far, it's been great. Seals well (sort of sucks in when you close it) and it is keeping everything well frozen. It's spacious and has a LOT of room.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
