This is a replacement for the same model I purchased eight years ago, which continues to work, but the gasket had deteriorated. Unfortunately, this caused it to run excessively in order to maintain the set temperature.
The old model had a sturdy metal handle. The new one has a flimsy plastic handle that wobbles every time the door is opened or closed--even though it was installed correctly.
The old model came with an additional wire shelf compared to the new one, so it's not as convenient to separate and find items in the freezer.
Very disappointed with the handle and expect it to break off at one or both of the two small screws holding to the door. Really miss the extra wire shelf as well.
Overall, the freezer works well at maintaining the temperature and it is quiet.
