Freezers typically last for 10-20 years with regular maintenance.

Regular freezer maintenance includes: cleaning the interior and exterior, checking and cleaning the door seals, ensuring proper airflow around the unit, and checking the temperature settings.

We recommend defrosting your manual freezer whenever the frost buildup reaches about a 1/4 inch thick.

It is common for new units to have a slight plastic smell. Ensure you have removed all packing material from the freezer. If that does not help, clean the inside of the unit by following the cleaning instructions included in your owner’s manual. Once completed, place an open box of baking soda in the freezer to absorb any remaining odours.

If the freezer door was recently opened, the cold air will have mixed with warmer air, creating a vacuum effect. This is normal and indicates that your door seal is working well.

To prevent frost buildup in your freezer, minimize the frequency of door openings, ensure the door seals are intact, and check that the temperature settings are appropriate. Regularly defrost the freezer if it does not have a frost-free feature.

Check and clean the fan and compressor area, ensure the freezer is level, and remove any objects or loose debris that might be causing the noise.
