1 3/8 hp Compressor

The bottom mounted design of the 1 3/8 hp compressor not only draws in cooler air for energy efficiency, but also raises the bottom shelf, so you don’t have to bend as much during loading and unloading. It circulates eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. Also, this unit has an automatic defrost cycle, so your staff doesn’t need to spend valuable time clearing out ice.

Corrosion-Resistant Shelves

These adjustable shelves are coated with plastic to help keep out moisture and resist corrosion and rusting. Each unit comes with 6 shelves and 24 shelf clips, allowing you to place your shelves exactly where you need them to accommodate your small or large food products.

Digital Temperature Control

Digital temperature control allows you to easily adjust the temperature of your freezer's cabinet within its -8 to -1 degree Fahrenheit range. Plus, the unit will automatically defrost 4 times a day to keep food fresh and properly chilled. The clear LCD readout also helps keep track of the unit’s temperature.

Door Lock

In order to keep your foods more secure overnight and after business hours, this unit features a door lock.

Self-Closing Doors

This unit's doors are self-closing with a stay-open feature, giving your staff the ability to more quickly and easily load your refrigerator when you get a delivery.

Casters Included

This freezer comes with four casters so you can freely move the unit aside when cleaning or maintenance are required, while also letting you make the unit stationary when needed.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

How do I correctly install the shelves into this unit?
To promote proper air flow through your Avantco unit, please ensure that the wire ledges on the shelves are positioned toward the back of the unit. These ledges help keep enough space between your product and the back wall so that cold air can adequately circulate through the cabinet. Incorrectly installing the shelf ledges can restrict airflow, causing the temperature in the bottom of your unit to rise.
I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Does Avantco warrant this item for use in a food truck?
Avantco warrants new equipment sold to food truck customers to be operational for a period of 30 days from the date of delivery if installed and maintained correctly.
Can this item fit through a standard height 80" doorway ?
Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

Don’t waste your money trying to save money. Our business purchased this as well as several other avantco refrigeration products. We are constantly having to check temps and monitor the units because they do not cool properly. Currently on the 3rd service call in 3 months. The warranty tech that came out said we will always regret buying such cheap equipment. We have lost food in this freezer twice. If we had a doover we’d wait until we could afford the better equipment.

Would not recommend. We spent a few weeks trying to get one fixed, and eventually we just had to get it replaced. Now, earlier this year we had another one break. We were told that the condenser fan was broken, and that the part would be in in a few weeks. Now, about 4 months later, the freezer is still sitting here, still broken.. We have called the manufacturer, and the repair service. Nowhere on the entire internet can i find this part, and nobody we have called knows where it is, or when it will be in, First we were told a few weeks, then we were told 2 months, then we were told late April, now were told late May, and im sure when we call again, they'll say late June. Absolutely ridiculous. They're still making these freezers so seemingly the part exists somewhere, but until they can get their crap together were stuck with a comically large paperweight. The part we need is 17816215, so if anyone out there has information on where i can get it please let me know.

Well, the freezer didn't do too bad. 14 months of service and then it conked out on me. Need a whole new fan installed to cool down the compressor. Probably wouldn't get this unless you need something on the cheaper side temporary because you're not going to get longevity out of it.

We purchased this item on November 30, 2018. It is not even 2 years old and the product has torn up twice. The second time was in September 2020 and we are told that what is wrong with it, that it is not repairable. It is the fan that prevents the door from freezing together. So this company does not honor their product and I will never purchase another product by this name again. Companies need to realize if they dont back their product then people will not purchase their products anymore. I give this product a 0-1 star because the looks of this product is good but the quality is not.

I would not recommend buying this brand Avantco, we had this freezer for less than a year and it broke. The repair is covered under warranty but the company would not allow us to use our repair service and selected one themselves. It has now been four weeks and the unit is still not repaired.

Trash. Ordered this freezer and had it delivered two weeks ago. Moved it into the restaurant and got it out of the packaging and pallet to find what was clearly a pre owner freezer. We were surprised it did not have any of the adhesive tape that covers stainless appliances but then upon closer inspection it was clear it was on the unit at one point but had all been removed except for the areas that take a little effort. The shelves were not zip tied together like every other fridge and freezer I have ever purchased. Instead they were thrown in the freezer loosely. The clips that hold the shelves which always come in a bag were also tossed into the unit except for a few where half on them were clipped in but were done so upside down by somebody who had no idea what they were doing. Read More

So far I love this freezer. The delivery went very smoothly and quickly. The freezer keeps the ice I store in it nice and frozen and holds 50 tubs, most quite as big as my old one but it’s a great feeezer and a good price ! Because I enrolled in th “plus” program, shipping was free.

This 2 door reach in freezer is excellent. It comes very well packed and ready to install. It is very quiet and holds temp around -6 or so. The doors auto seal after each time you close them which is a great feature. I would def recommend this freezer.

This unit was recommended to me by our refrigeration company. They said that this brand is not one they get a lot of service calls for and it's a good value for the money. I thank them for the recommendation! This unit is great, plenty of space, looks good and haven't had any issues with it. Be prepared to have plenty of people to help get it in the building though because the delivery driver just drops it off, they don't help with the install.

Great freezer and awesome size. This thing really holds a lot of stuff. Way more than you even realize. Easy to clean as well. Looks nice in open areas.

This freezer is the perfect size when you have limited space and holds more than what you would think. Doors open wide and stay open for easy loading or reaching in to get stuff.

After researching many reach in freezers throughout many sites, was the most helpful in giving me all the professional information I needed. They answered all the questions I had quickly and delivery was communicated smoothly and was on time. I will continue to order from from small to large items. Thank you for your professionalism!

Andrea G. on 06/19/2017

just two months from 3 years of use, condenser fan stopped working. I'm going try to replace the condenser fan myself but this freezer's unit all under, will be a tough job to do! rather working with units on top. Final thought DONT BUY THIS ONE!

Our freezers are working really well. They are very large inside but fit in compact places. We have not had any problems. Doors do stick for a second after closing if you are tying to open right back up again.

Just got this in and I couldn’t be happier! This is a must have piece of kitchen equipment. I highly recommend this product to any and every kitchen.
