A:AnswerWhen opening the door, outside air replaces the cold air inside which is now falling out at the bottom ( remember cold air is heavier and flows out bottom cavity when you open door ). When you close the door back, it starts cooling that newly warmer air that came in and this causes a STRONG Suction on the door if it has good seals ( cold air condenses - hot air expands ). Once that air is cooled down inside, the door will open easily. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this because it can slightly deform the thinner doors I see on units nowadays, but For those that don't believe me, grab your door on the top corner above handle side and pull. This will break the tight seal from that corner instead of the whole length of the door....or just wait 30 seconds or so to re=open. Listen closely, when you close the door after its been open a minute or so ( hotter outside, faster it does this ) and you will hear a low swooshing sound by door / seal as it is cooling that air that just got in. My son had the same problem and thought it was locking by itself. After checking the lock mechanism and trying it myself, I realized what he was experiencing was just a good door seal and the issue explained above. I explained it to him and now he understands. We should all teach each other what we know.
Thanks for the head's up. The dimensions of the freezer are of course different (79.33 inches tall, 34.84 inches wide and 30.51 inches deep). We are working with the website design team on correcting them.

A:AnswerThe advertisement for this freezer states that it is made to work in a garage. I just bought one and have had it for about a month now. Totally pleased with it. I put it in my garage and I live in the South so it gets hot. The freezer cooled with in 3 hours and was ready for food items. It makes no noise at all and has lots of room. Very glad I got it. Hope this helps.
A:AnswerWell.....If there is no power to energize the unit it will shut off as it needs power to run.
As long as the unit stays closed and isn’t over filled it should seal properly when closed and retain the cold. We had a planned power outage for 8 hours to upgrade services and ours is in the garage. Not only did the app on my phone notify me of the outage when the freezer lost power it told me when it kicked back on again and the internal temp. When power kicked back on there was no temperature change in the freezer as it was kept closed the entire time. I think you’ll be fine as long as you don’t open it for extended periods of time with no power.
