Freezer does a awsome job keeping all my foods frozen and that's with the temp on med.It's small but it holds a lot of food and with food going up in price it just makes sense.
This is a very nice freezer, a good size and all you need for a family of four or more, I have had it for a week and everything has been good so far, keeps everything just as suppose to, and for the price real good got it on sale, and like that it is a Kenmore, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good product at the right price, doesnt take up much room neither.
this product is great it is just perfect for a small freezer in a small house it is very durable and keeps everything I need it to keep and fits right where I needed it to fit

We have owned this freezer for about 2 years. It just stopped working. It does not cool at all. The information I have found online shows this is common for this model and the repairs cost more than the freezer did. It worked fine while we had it but I guess you get what you pay for. The warranty was for 1 year so no help there either.
Well I needed a Deep freezer cause I have an large family and just the freezer that comes with a regular refrigarator wasn't working. Because I had to go food shopping every week, but since I have my deep freezer don't have to go that often. And I got it On sale to.

Sadly, like many others, my freezer failed after a short time. Less than 2 years. Like many other appliance companies, Sears has decided to have junk built in China. Cheap, disposable garbage. Out of the box there were signs of shoddy workmanship and poor quality. Should have returned it then. I'm done with Sears/Kenmore. Too bad, because I remember when this was a quality brand.
There are many things to love about this freezer. It has wheels, it has a power on light, it has a hanging basket and an internal divider. I can understand the favorable reviews from those who have just purchased it. The problem is longevity. Like many others, mine gave out in the three year range. I would expect at least five and even longer. I don't understand why these freezers can't last just as long as a standard refrigerator? I have just recently replaced our Kenmore chest freezer and guess what? I didn't buy a Kenmore. The price is too expensive for the length of time is lasts. Worse, the Kenmore warranty is one year parts and labor. The competition offers 1 year parts and labor and 5 years on the compressor, which is the part that most commonly fails on these units. And, the competition is much less expensive. I normally am a fan of Sears and Kenmore, but I would suggest passing on this one.

this was a present for my daughter, she needed a small freezer that would fit in a kitchen corner, This is the perfect size for a family that needs more freezer space but has to make room in the kitchen.
I purchased a Kenmore Chest Freezer model#19502 in September 2011 and it is not even 3 years yet and my freezer died on me last week (Jan 2014). Don't know when it actually stopped working but I lost more food than I paid for the freezer. Your CSR recommended that I buy another chest freezer and get the extended warranty. I don't think I will ever buy another Kenmore product if this is what I have to put with and I'm not! Your products are not built to last.
Purchaced this freezer and had it four years before it died. Talked to one of their technicians on line and he said I had to purchase the condenser and all that came with it to get the "Start Relay Switch" The diagram on Sears site shows each part numbered but you cannot purchase them in that manner. I took the switch out took it apart and cleaned the points with sandpaper and put it back together and it works like it should. Lost all that I had in the freezer....Skip this one for sure. Kenmore no longer means quality.
Nice compact freezer unit. We keep it downstairs for bulk frozen goods. It does need to be defrosted about once a year. Failure to do this will cause the power relay on the size of the compresser to fail, but it can be replaced in a couple of minutes and the relay only costs $12. All these reviews about the freezer "dying" after a few years are due to this. With a little care, this freezer will last a long time. Note: if you see ice starting to form around the top gasket, it is time to defrost!
I have had no problem with my freezer since I have gotten it. Sears delivery men was really nice and helpful delivering my freezer. It is suitable and convenient for me. Not too big or small. Had no problem since I have had it. I highly recommend the freezer.

WHILE IT IS NOW LINED WITH PLASTIC,INSTEAD OF METAL, IT IS THE SAME AS THE ONE i PURCHASED JUST OVER 2 YEARS AGO. IT DIES 3 DAYS AGO. i AM ON A FIXED INCOME AND THIS ROTTING OF FOOD LEFT ME WITH ONLY BREAD TO EAT -ALL MY MEAT AND VEGETABLES ARE NOW GONE BAD. WE WERE ABLE TO BAKE THE THAWED FROZEN BREAD DOUGH- AND THAT'S WHAT WE ARE LEFT WITH TO EAT.-AS i DON'T EAT CANNED FOODS. THANKS SEARS FOR BECOMING A COMPANY THAT HAS SUNK TO SELLING YOUR PRODUCT MANUFACTURING TO THE LOWEST BIDDER. YOU WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER DOLLAR OF MINE WE HAVE FOUND SEVERAL REVIEWS THAT STATES THE SAME ISSUE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. DIES IN APX. 2 YEARS. DON'T BUY KENMORE ANY MORE!
Just like all the others experience...worked for less than 2 years and compressor quit working. Had a freezer full of fish from Alaska that had to be thrown out. Warranty is 6-12 months long so legally you are screwed. No help from local manager where I purchased, no discount or deal on replacement either. No more visits to the local sears appliance center for me either. Sears won't stand behind their Kenmore products anymore it seems. One Star because I can't rate it 1/4 star!
