Danby 7 Cubic Feet Chest Freezer Review (DCFM070C1WDB)

Danby DCFM070C1WDB is a chest freezer with 7 cubic foot (198 liters) capacity. It’s equipped with R600a refrigerant and features 5 temperature settings from approximately 10.4°F to -11.2°F (-12°C to -24°C).


Danby DCFM070C1WDB works really well. Doesn’t take very long for it to cool down and keeps your food frozen really well. It’s also pretty quiet overall but isn’t completely noiseless as compressor makes some noise.


Danby DCFM070C1WDB has dial for temperature adjustment with 5 temperature settings + “Off” setting. Above the dial there are two indicator lights: “Power” (illuminates when chest freezer is connected to power supply) and “Run” (illuminates when compressor is currently running).


Some consumers have reported receiving dented units which were probably caused by shipping process. This usually is just an aesthetic flaw and doesn’t affect the functionality of chest freezer but it can be quite disappointing when you buy a new appliance and it doesn’t look that way.
