Do the Right Thing.


Many families prefer upright freezers as they tend to take up less floor space. But that’s just one of the reasons this contemporary model by Danby is so popular with consumers. This full-sized freezer can provide a very impressive 5.9 cubic feet (168 liters) of storage space due to its five quick-freeze shelves. The esteemed Energy Star rating means the appliance will help reduce costly electricity bills and the manual-defrost function makes maintenance a breeze. Its high-tech mechanical thermostat is designed for supreme accuracy when programming and monitoring your temperature settings. This modern appliance also features a clever reversible door hinge which enables you to adjust it for either left or right-handed opening. There’s also a 5 year warranty on parts and labor which features convenient in-home service.

Customer Reviews

Danby Designer 5.9 cu. ft. Upright Freezer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my Danby 5.9 cu, ft, Upright Freezer I like this freezer twice as much as I thought I would. I had been considering this purchase for more than a year and the pandemic (so I could keep more food on hand) pushed me into purchasing the Danby 5.9 cu.ft. upright freezer. My second reason was it would give me peace of mind if my refrig/freezer failed or needed repair. I do love how visible the food is because of the shelves. This unit has fixed shelves which may limit the size of the items that will fit but a 14 lb.turkey did fit on a shelf. I am a little concerned with the two plastic drawers that could possibly fall if pulled out too far. I am careful because I don't know how easily they would break. The quality is very good and was undamaged. This is my first freezer purchase. I thought it was a great value and would definitely recommend this freezer to any one who needed extra freezer space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Does what it's supposed to do. Keeps the temperature at zero or below, it's quiet, spacey and energy efficient. In other words, it checks all the boxes.

Danby’s refrigerators and freezers operate at a sound level between 35 and 46 decibels. This is within the normal decibel range for modern freezers.
Garage ready means that the freezer is well insulated and equipped to handle temperature extremes in an enclosed garage. The garage must be enclosed so that the freezer is not subject to snow, rain and other environmental weather conditions not meant for an electrical appliance. The exterior temperature range that the garage ready freezers can operate within is 0F - 110F/-17C – 43C.
Doors can be reversed on the majority of Danby’s refrigerators. Door reversal instructions can be found in the owner’s manual. Video instructions can be found using this link:  
15.03" Width, 22.71" Height, 18.89" Depth
Information pertaining to watts and amps can be found on the rating plate located on the back of the unit.
We do not recommend using an extension cord.
The temperature range varies based on model. Please consult your owner’s manual or the product page on the website.
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.
Our freezers are not designed for outside installation. This also includes porches, carports, etc
This varies based on unit and model. See your owner’s manual for defrost type and instructions.
