Hummm, try this... No Haier!! here is what you do.  Go to Lowes and look at the 5.1 cu. ft. chest type freezer.  Nice looking unit, controls up front, basket inside.  But here is the good part.  I had to buy a new one for my business last month.  Sent my tech to go check out freezers for me.  I hate shopping.  He found this one at Lowes.  Book showed a 1 year warranty.  Knew this could not be right since compressors have a 5 year warranty.  Sales guy checks their specs book and finds this freezer does have the one year warranty on the whole unit, but also has a  5 year warranty on the compressor, parts and labor, and a 10 year warranty on the compressor itself.  Now this is good.  Nice baked finish.  Tech called me, I told him to get it and a copy of this warranty.  Brought me the new freezer, the receipt for the $149.00 , a copy of the full warranty and I am as pleased as eating a chunk of hot cornbread dripping with butter.  I do not have the model number here at the house but can provide it tomorrow if needed when I get to my business.  I had to turn the CC down since at medium was staying about 10-15 below 0.  On  minimum stays on 0.......Go look at them, has the handles for the top recessed into the corners on the front sides of the lid.  I normally do not like Frigidaire appliances like their washers and dryers and frig's, and D/W's. but this little freezer took my heart.  Pegi

It is a Frigidaire from Lowes.  Do not buy the Haier brand unless you make sure there is someone in your area that does warranty work on this brand.  Other wise it will just be replaced.  Keep your receipt and see what the warranty on that thing is.  Will post the model number tomorrow when I get to the shop for the Frigidaire but should not matter where it is purchased, should have the same warranty??

Thanks, I'll check into other lowes in the area to see if they have the frigidaire in stock.
