With my standing freezer that I bought back in 2012. While the convenience of a fridgerator type door over bending into a chest freezer is nice, I have not been happy with it. This was my first experience with a standing freezer. It tends to ice up quickly and not keep door items frozen, sometimes the top shelf items aren't as frozen as I feel they should be. This morning, DD reported some water on the garage floor. I've researched this, and could* be just the condensor defrosting it, but it's the last straw for me. I've been thinking of replacing it for some time now.
This GE energy star model is $40 off at Home Depot, but back ordered. I checked at every appliance source around-same story, some with even further out delivery dates.
So, I paid for this, including tax and a delivery fee, and the projected delivery date is a week out (8/26). My experience, fingers crossed, with HD is that items are often available before that date. So, glad the freezer is fuller, to keep items cold. I checked, everything seems ok (I no longer hold anything in the door).
I don't think that I will ever go back to a standing freezer; I grew up with a chest freezer, had them at my marital home for years. This new one is smaller than the current one, intentionally so as the kids are slowly fleeing the nest. The current one is an energy star Maytag, 15.3 cubic feet, while the new one will be a GE energy star 10.6 cubic feet.
Anyone else find stand freezers to be problematic?
