Customer Reviews

Danby 8.5 Cu.Ft. Upright Freezer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs too frequent defrosting as opposed to the user's manual. Within the first three weeks frost began to build up. Now the unit needs to be defrosted monthly or the frost/ice will use up all the interior space. Your instruction manual for users states it may require defrosting two times a year. What do you suggest. Also, shortly after I bought it I sent you an Email asking what you recommend for cleaning the s/s door front. I am still waiting for a courteous response from your company. At this point I would not recommend this unit to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Danby 8 cu ft upright freezer Unfornately, freezer I received was a lemon and would not freeze. Thankfully, return authorization was approved. Although it was tedious to repackage unit as boxes had been discarded. Appreciated vendor paid for return shipping and was picked up at my residence by FedEx. Big mistake ordering large appliance online. Went local to purchase another freezer. But cuddles to Danby Customer Service and standing behind their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Freezer of this Size I purchased this freezer as a replacement for a similar Danby freezer which honked out after a decade of use. I am even more pleased with this newer model. It is an improvement from the previous model with better door racks. I searched far and wide for a freezer of this size and Danby was the only one which offered a suitable model. It is also the best priced option in this category. I confidently recommend this freezer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth buying Wayfair had to replace first one because seal was broken and if formed about 10 inches of ice. But the replacement works great, maintains temp, no freezer burn and plenty of storage. Three wishes: Longer cord, light inside and a handle outside. Worth buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from quite but needs more shelves VERY quite & spacious looks nice only downside: really should have more shelves, there is HUGE gap between shelves which makes it hard to organize things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer This stand up freezer is the only way to go. Always see exactly what I want, no digging in a chest freezer. Extra space with the shelves on the door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from needs power lite This is a fantastic freezer I rate at 4.5 stars. What would make it five star is a power on lite on the outside of the freezer.

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.
