  • This classic two-door refrigerator-freezer, has many advantages including the design to accommodate taller items.
  • One advantage of the two doors on this single unit freezer which makes access so much easier and is an energy efficient facility as only one compartment has to be opened when putting food into the freezer or retrieving it.
  • The FAST FREEZE setting is a great advantage for freezing large amounts of food quickly and efficiently. On this setting the freezer runs almost continuously providing freshly cooled air which forces the freezer to run at a temperature that is 10°COLDER than the lowest setting .
  • Knowing how important it is to maintain the freezer temperature at a safe temperature - it is a real advantage to have an alarm that warns of a temperature rise in the freezer.
  • The Frost Free Defrost feature is such an advantage as defrosting a big freezer with a capacity of 19.6 cu ft would present some real problems - such has how to keep huge amounts of frozen food frozen during the defrost process.
  • Although there is no practical advantage the good looks and stylish finish of this Duel-Door FREEZER is an advantage for those that like all their appliances to give a modern look to their kitchen.


  • One customer found that when closing the door of the top freezer, the bottom door would pop open and then close again. Although this was not a serious disadvantage, as the door always closed properly it caused a little concern, in case it remains slightly ajar without them realizing it. >
  • Another customer had a problem with a couple of the seals in this freezer, such that when one door was closed the other would pop open.
