Kenmore Chest Freezer 19502 Failed in 2.5 Years.
PITTSFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS -- I bought a Kemore Chest Freezer, Model # 19502 in Feb 2011.
Today (July 16, 2013) I find that it was "on" but everything inside had thawed. There was no power surge, no power outage, it was plugged in, the light was still on. After turning the switch to off and back on, it didn't work so I hit the light. Magically the compressor turned back on.
So I've thrown out a freezer full of food to the tune of at least a $200.
This freezer is also the subject of a rebate because it does NOT meet the energy standards that it was advertised as meeting. The result from that was a check for something like $12 that I have to reapply for each year for 3 years.
