Customer Reviews

Danby 5.5 cu. ft. Freezer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect size.But the door seal needed adjusting. I researched small chest freezers before purchasing this one. Yes, its a nice size, comes with one basket and fits in my laundry room. Holds just what I need for extra freezer space. I noticed it seemed to be running all the time. So I called Danby. Had repair guy out here.The door seal hinge needed to be adjusted. Worked fine, but now less than 2 months later I am finding its runs too much again. if I place a heavy object on top of the door, it doesnt run as much.The seal probably needs to be adjusted again. If they could just fix the seal I would be a very happy camper! Calling Danby tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Danby - DCF055A1WDB1 EXCELLENT CHOICE Wonderful size! Small enough to tuck into our tiny laundry room and yet plenty roomy inside for a couple of foodies, who entertain a lot! Oh yah and we transported it on a 14 hour move mid year. Kept it up-right, let it settle overnight, plugged it back in and its still running perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too big. Not too small. I purchased this freezer to help me quickly freeze raspberries, of which I gather approximately two quarts per day. I kept it in my kitchen July through September, which made it all very efficient. It has quite the repertoire of operational sounds, but it never seemed to raise my electric bill. I would make this purchase all over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Good Freezer I need a small freezer to help with storing a few deer from a great hunting season. It also enabled me to buy a half of a pig this year. At first I thought for the price I should avoid it. But it isover a year since I got it. It keeps things well frozen and is very quiet running I do not hear it at all. The onlu downfall is the indicator light by the thermostat controll flickered for about a month and eventualy burned out. Other than that it is a great freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and meets my needs I've had this freezer for about a year now and it seems to be humming long just fine. Price was right. Fits well in the smallish space I have for it and has ample storage for my 2-person household. I no longer see the freezer burn I used to get when storing meats in my refrigerator freezer. I'm able to keep it at a pretty low setting and everything is still very frozen. No complaints.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Upper seal seems somewhat inadequate I quickly noticed a frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer. It appears that the upper seal of this unit is not particularly good.

Have you recently opened and then closed the freezer (over the last 1-5 minutes)? If so, being unable to open the unit again right away is an indication that your door seal is working well.
