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 17.8 cubic feet (501 litres) of storage space due to its four quick-freeze shelving units and half a dozen door shelves. The esteemed Energy Star rating means the appliance will help reduce costly electricity bills and your food items are brightly illuminated by the powerful interior light to help for quick and easy accessibility. The manual-defrost function makes maintenance a breeze and the 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 12-month warranty on parts and labour which features convenient in-home service.

      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.

      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.
      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.
