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.

WILL QUIT AND RUIN YOUR FOOD
As stated in multiple other reviews, the 5.1 cu. ft. Chest Freezer quit after a couple of years use and we just finished throwing out an expensive amount of ruined meat--some of it choice grass-fed beef. Absolutely avoid this product. We will never again purchase a Kenmore chest freezer and will be passing on the warning to all of our friends.

Absolutely the Worst

I had this product for 2 and one-half years before it died taking $400 worth of meat with it. I expect any product bearing the Kenmore name to have the reliability and dependability I grew up knowing. This is the first time in my 50+ years of buying Kenmore branded products that such a brand failed to live up to its name. Its not just me, so many others have experienced this disaster of a purchase. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Repair-Maintenance/Questions-Answers/I-have-a-Kenmore-Chest-Freezer-Model-195/Model-25519502010/0582/0141000/319951?modelNumber=25519502010 On top of it all, this unit was falsely advertised as being an energy efficient machine and IT IS NOT. This is the worst purchase ever and yet it CONTINUES TO BE SOLD BY SEARS. STAY AWAY from this product. Reconsider what it is you want to purchase but see how the sales rep backs up the product and NOT by offering a 3 year warranty package for $100 more. You read this... now you have been advised.... a fool and a money is soon parted... I only wish I had taken a moment to review my intended purchase beforehand.... I wouldn't be sitting here writing the review. I could actually be enjoying some the meat that I once had ! :( :(

Just what I needed.

The size is perfect. I just needed some additional freezer space and didn't want to take up too much floor space so this is just what I was looking for and not too expensive.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Poor poor quality - Dies very quickly

We purchased this product in 2011 and it died in 2014. Warranty is worthless...product is worthless. Buy a different brand.

Nice deep freezer

I just moved into a townhouse and its just me and my best friend. This deep freezer has more than enough space for the both of us. Also the deep freezer does not use a lot of electricity and keeps my food beyond cold. I highly recommend.

3 years one month

I had a warranty for 3 years. It lasted 3 years and one month. I didn't get any money from the energy star. I must state, that, I didn't defrost it enough though. The light would not come on when failed. Started having trouble keeping 0 about 1 month before it failed. I worry about the 5 cu foot that has 7 positives.

Poor Quality

Had it about 2 years. Compressor went out. Same as everyone else. Was not covered by warranty. Would cost $75 to have a technician look at it. Lost all of the food in it. Took it to the dump. Will never buy another one from Sears.

Not the Sears or Kenmore it used to be

2.5 years and shot! Had our previous small, but slightly larger than this one, freezer for about 25 years. Kenmore and Craftsman were names synonymous with American quality - no more!

we needed a freezer but did not want something so big. This product is the perfect size for where we wanted to install it. I also loved the price. I was also able to pick it up that same day.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY

If I would have left this review when I first bought the chest freezer it would have been 5 stars. It is a great size, fits anywhere in the house and has plenty of room for storing food. Loved it! I bought the freezer on 09/10/2011 and bought the 2 year warranty with it. 2 years pass and everything is great! Went home today to clean it out to make room for a 1/4 cow I ordered.... everything was rotten! The green light on the bottom right was still on but it isn't cold. Thought I was safe buying a Kenmore product, thought wrong. And when I called Sears to schedule a service call, it was going to be $75 just to diagnose. The freezer is only $200. Very disappointed in this purchase.

After the first year, got a call telling us the energy star guide was wrong so the sent us a check to cover the energy difference $13, and had to call every year that we owned it to get the refund, but by the 2nd year the compressor went out lost food. Piece of junk. DO NOT BUY!!

It is not working after exactly 2 years and 10 months. Repair cost is at least $75 + labor + parts. Not worth to do this.

5.1 CT Chest Freezer

This item is a good purchase for small spaces like apartments. Additionally, if only one or two people live in the household, then having a large freezer is unnecessary. Frozen foods needs to be rotated out in a home setting just as they are done in a store setting. Therefore, this size freezer will allow for frozen food to be kept frozen while limiting the amount of space and frozen grocery expense. This freezer funs quiet and does not appear to come on as often as some freezers. Also, the top of the freezer has a good seal and it acts as a good work surface for unpacking grocery bags or other quick and easy tasks. In short, I am pleased with the purchase lo this good and will recommend it to others.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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!

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!
