Order one of these from Home Depot in November 2012 for this price. The deal was very popular which created a huge back order. My freezer was delivered in January 2013 by GE and not Home Depot. No problems what so ever with the unit. Good unit for a good price

Don't have a basement, can you keep a freezer in an unheated garage in New England?
I read up on this a few years back because I have a fridge as well as this freezer (which I recommend) in my garage in Alabama. The article basically said that being in a garage/basement/room with a non-normal ambient climate will readjust its cycling regularity.

For an appliance that doesn't automatically defrost, this isn't a big deal as it just means it'll run longer/shorter then typical which MAY shorten the appliance's life in the long run OR affect a GFCI outlet (if plugged in to an environment that requires them) causing it to trip more often eventually breaking the outlet (which I have happen about every four years).

For an appliance that does automatically defrost, in addition to what I mentioned above, shortened cycles due to colder environments and high humidity means that its defrost cycle won't run long enough to remove all the humidity and you will potentially see ice build up so you may have to still manually defrost it every so often.

any of you homebrewers know how easy it is to get to the coarse adjustment screw on these? I have the aquarium thermostat that I can wire up, but if I can do it without cutting wires that would be ideal!
i messed with it and couldn't get it to stay a consistent temp, it was all over the place. I use a johnson controls digital controller.

Thanks, I didn't even think about the outlet issue...I think I'll avoid this altogether as hot summers/freezing winters its going to have to work hard in the garage and sap a lot of electricity...

Can you put 2 carboys in yours?
I have 2 6 gallon Better Bottle carboys in mine, although it's likely a different model GE (a little older, got it on Craigslist). Better bottles are a little bigger diameter than most glass carboys, so you should be good.

I don't know about wiring it directly in. On my temperature controller, I built in a 2-gang outlet and wired it to the controller. Then I just plug the freezer into the outlet on the temperature controller. No cutting wires in the freezer at all.

Checked a few forums and no one seems to have found it but one guy did indicate he did find it and even with it turned all the way up the freezer was still in the 30 range. Seems like you'll need the thermostat.

I dont have my freezer yet but i just aligned two 6.5 glass carboys and they took up just about the same amount of room as my stagered 3 pony kegs. So i'd think so.
Look here [homebrewtalk.com] to see what will fit in this freezer.

Any chance of a commercial keg fitting in this? I wanna do 1 commercial and 1-2 homebrew.

I believe commercial kegs have a diameter of between 16-17 inches vs 9 inches for a homebrew keg

Man, if this only had a child lock on it I would be in. I don't need my five year old playing in it.

Awesome, my mini-fridge kegerator died this week and I just hooked up a deal alert for a chest freezer yesterday. Great timing and thanks!
