Product Description

Kenmore Elite 16.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer - Stylish and Functional

Style meets function with the many features of the Kenmore upright freezer 2871. It offers a quick freeze function that preserves your foods quickly, along with a soft freeze zone to keep your staple foods slightly warmer for faster consumption. Convenient door ajar and high temperature alarms alert you visibly and audibly to prevent spoilage, and a control lockout function prevents rising temperatures from compromising your food. The exterior of this upright freezer offers easy-to-read controls which display the temperature and operation status, and its frost-free design eliminates the need for manual defrosting.

  • 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.
  • A wide, narrow pizza shelf boosts organization by creating a spot specifically for pizzas and similarly shaped items like ice cream cakes and frozen entrees.
  • 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.
  • Designed to hold temperatures steady, prevent tampering and keep kids out of trouble, the control lockout option delivers an extra layer of security against spoiled food.
  • Enhanced air flow design channels cold air, around, over and across your freezer’s contents for superior refrigeration, balanced performance and consistently frozen foods.
  • With a bright LCD display and easy access, the external control panel puts temperature settings, alarm status and more within reach

Pleased with purchase
I ordered a Kenmore because of the reputation of the name and this item because it had an energy star rating. The delivery men arrived 10 minutes early, were efficient, and took all garbage with them. Within The delivery men told me it would take up to five hours for the freezer to reach zero degrees. Within two hours it was at zero. There is hardly any noise produced by the freezer and have not experienced any problems with the freezer. I am very happy with my purchase.

Dead in18 months
Puchased this freezer in January of 2011 from the online reviews. It died on 7/13/2012. A new product should last for more than 18 months. I will cost over $900 to repair, more then the cost of the freezer. Sears shouild stand behind their products for more than 1 year.

Much too laud

I bought this freezer to replace my 38 year old upright Whirlpool Freezer, still working but not so energy efficient or frost free. Fits right in the old space in my kitchen and the freezer looks great and stays cold. The delivery guys couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. My only problem is the noise. It is even lauder than my old unit. It runs for over 20 minutes every hour. The temperature seems to stay constant so why does it run so long and so laud? I was almost tempted to bring my old unit back in. I bought a supper quiet Kitchen Aid dishwasher and a quiet Samsung Refrigerator but now I am stuck with this laud thing. So unless it is going in your garage I would not ever buy this unit.

Super quiet and great features

I have been looking at this model for about a month. It has glass shelves, and racks on the door which can be moved up or down. It also has a pizza rack below the top shelf. I bought this last week before Christmas. It was a floor model clearance. It was only $412.00 and it is in pristine shape. It took me about 30 seconds to make up my mind. Since I brought it home on it's side, I let it sit for a few days before plugging it in to let the compressor oil drain back down. This is a must! After leveling it out in my downstairs bedroom/ computer room, I plugged it in and read the instructions, and set it on 0. After 35 minutes, it's down to 21 degrees from 73 degrees. It has a faint hum, and is not louder than my refrigerator when it's running. I haven't put any food in yet, but I a totally happy so far. When it reaches 0, and shuts off, I will see how long it takes before it runs again. I cannot hear it running in my family room which is next to the bedroom. So far LOVE IT!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Elite 16.7 cu. ft. 4628712

Kenmore Elite 16.7 cu. ft. model# 4628712 Read instruction. Cleaned and then plugged in, temp down to 0 in about 2 hour. Set up in house, so never new how much they run and how loud they can be. After a few adjustments in location, 4"+ air space is better, we slept very well. Freezer in room next to bedroom. Very impressive inside with plenty of light, space and adjustments. No guessing on temp, it's on the outside of door. Energy Star a ++. The 3-year In-Home Master Protection Agreement is awesome make sure you read and add it to order. It covers everything right down to food lose and total equipment replacement. A must!!! Make sure to check out Energy rebates for your area, we saved an extra $70.00.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
