We have enjoyed this freezer. The controls are easy to operate and the bins and organizers make it much more convenient to use than the older chest freezers. We also like the alarms, its nice to know if the door got left open or the power to the freezer went out.
We have been happy with this freezer. Controls are easy to operate and the bins and organizers are very convenient. I like that it has the door open and loss of power alarms.
Nice big freezer, seemed to work fine the first few days but after only 4 days the temp wouldn't go below 10 and the 5th day was 22. Called local Sears, service tech tentatively scheduled to come in 9 days ! Good thing I don't have anything but 300 pounds of ice in it ! Thinking it has a Freon leak, probably end up replacing it. It's just a pain to buy new stuff and have problems with it right off the bat. My luck to get a lemon. I'll rate YES to recommend to a friend but will see how the service call and repairs go before I actually recommend.
Purchased on sale which is the only way I would buy it. Top is very flimsy. My electronic display was not connected at the factory so I had to take 3 hours off work to have someone come look at it and tell me what the issue was and fix it. I'm only rating this because Sears won't stop calling me about doing this survey!
It's larger than my old freezer, but with less usable space since there are only 3 baskets on the top rack, and no middle baskets like my old freezer. Bottom dividers are a good idea, but so deep that I foresee many things getting buried and forgotten.

Our old freezer was an upright purchased in 1992. This freezer holds so much more and saves us about $20/month on our electric bill! Downsides are: 1) Because of its size, it's difficult to get 100% level so the lid closes tightly, but it's do-able. Worse case scenario, we just put a little weight on top. 2) The plastic dividers are durable, but move out of square easily, which is frustrating if in one compartment you have odd-shaped items like home grown frozen vegetables in baggies which will push the dividers out of square so that square boxes (ie, fish sticks) don't fit squarely in. 3) It does accumulate frost, though after one year it's not bad at all!

Fantastic large size freezer. It never makes a sound, and it's always icy cold. The power consumption is on par or better than our old standard size refrigerator. The temp indicator and key lock are nice to haves. The only down is that the backup temp sensor REQUIRES a 9v battery to be in place or the thing beeps forever.
I was very upset when I gave the initial review which was not updated. So here I come again. Kenmore chest freezer 24.9 Cu. Ft. was the most efficient product I ever bought from sears until recently. The temperature regulator used to be in the side close to where the compressor was located and when the connection goes wrong, the alarm would come on until reconnected to power source. I own two of this. The newest of them I bought in 2005. STILL IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND CONDITION. I bought a new one online and picked it up on Saturday April 20, 2013. When I got home, I went through the manual. The instruction specified that a 9 volt battery is required. I did not power on the freezer until April 23 when I had a 9 volt battery. I followed manufacturer?s instructions but the indicator lights did not come on. The freezer worked but the temperature will not go beyond 5 degrees: could not get to zero degree. There is an error in the electrical design. For a freezer to require a 9volt battery is making up for inadequacies which cannot be fixed by the end user. Why would Sears transfer their error to the end user? Since I have owned it for less than a week, I decided to call their customer service number and the Representative told me the technician instructed her to let me know I had two choices: I need to pay $75.00 to have a technician scheduled to come take a look but will NOT fix it OR take it back to the store. I opted to take the freezer back to the store. I took the freezer back on April 24, 2013 and purchased Frigidaire of the same size from *****. I purchased ALL my appliances from Sears to mention a few with no regret but this freezer is a bad product will not recommend it to anyone. I would rate the customer service zero as well. BUYERS BEWARE!!!!!!
I purchased the Kenmore Elite because I thought I was buying a quality product. It looks nice but looks are deceiving. I pulled this thing out of the box and plugged it in. It immediately flashed CE ( communication error ) and the manual instructs me to call technical service. The tech guy just left and handed me the receipt for repairs ( covered under warranty) $634.00 was the total. Fascinating since I'm looking at a brand new on the website right now for 659. He had to order 2 circuit boards and a wiring harness to be sure it got repaired the first time since I have 2000.00 worth of beef in it. Unfortunately for me I had to pick up my beef at the same time I picked up the freezer so I have no other place for it. Fortunately the thing still freezes on fast freeze or I would be up the creek since it took a week to get the thing in the first time I ordered it. My point in this whole thing is you would think they would plug the **** thing in and check it before they shipped it out.
