This Kenmore 5.1 Chest Freezer is Great.

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.

piece of junk do not I repeat do not purchased this piece of junk
I see I am not the only one who has had problems with this piece of junk freezer. Wish I could give this a 0 rating for it doesn't even deserve that. Mine lasted 2 years and like everyone else's the compressor has died on it and of course Sears won't do the right thing and refund everyone who has purchased this piece of junk freezer. I had no warranty, didn't think I needed a warranty on something that should last well beyond 2 years time. I will never ever buy anything from Sears again.

Great freezer

My favorite part of this product is the ease. Plug it in and within an hour it was freezing! Nice size...I was able to get everything in there I needed! The basket on top is an added bonus!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

awesome!

This freezer is wonderful. Love the size. Fits perfectly in our small apartment. Love how I can move the small wired shelf around as well. My husband fishes, so I am able to fill his huge cooler full of ice very quickly while he's at work and have it ready when he comes home!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quit after 3 years

I wanted to write this review to bring down the rating so other people won't buy this model and lose expensive food when it does! Green light is on letting us know that it's supposed to be working, but lo & behold, everything inside has melted & thawed! What a mess. my last small kenmore freezer lasted for over 20 years so I thought I could trust the Kenmore name. Guess I shouldn't have assumed that!

It won't last long

I just replaced this freezer as the compressor died after just short of three years. I replaced it with the 8.8 cubic freezer which has better reviews. I had the guy look up the date of purchase and it was on 6/14/11, and I'm now replacing it on 6/1/14. No point in the doing the two year service agreement. You won't have a single problem until you open it one day and items are thawing. I would avoid this product.

good freezer

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Only lasted for 2 years

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.

Walk Away

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.

Great at first, but dead in the long run

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.

Chest Freezer goes kaput

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.

Four years it died

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.
