I am looking for the size (cubic feet) of an old Kenmore upright freezer.

It is uaually coded into the model #. Usually in the middle. I can usually eyeball them. another solution is measure the outside dimensions of a refrigerator or freezer you know the size of then compare them. This will give you a rough estimate.

I am going to guess that it is going to be around 17 cubic feet since that number is in the model number, at least that is how current models are labeled. Here is a link to a copy of the owners manual if you need it.

Here is another link to a page where I looked up the age of your unit and it will give you an idea where to look that up as well.

I was not able to find any info quickly on your older Kenmore in my literature but its a sure bet that it was not as efficient as the new one. You can do a calculation or look at the plate (usually on the back) that states the amperage draw on each model- the higher one is the less efficient. As for cuft you need to do the math and measure the inside storage area in inches wide, inches deep and inches tall. Multiply the width X depth X height then divide by 144 (the cu inches in a cubic ft) this will give you the actual size of the Kenmore for comparison. Hope this helps... also you may want to check with your local electric utility company as many are offering a rebate to replace 10 yr old fridge. freezers and usually pick up for free.

Is this a trick question? It is 20.3 cubic feet according to your question. This may be the capacity or the size of gross measurement ... you have not indicated.

Please ask the actual question you want to know ...

I cannot find a MQU8057AEW in the Maytag library. I did find a MQU2056AEW that is 20 cu ft.

A freezer this old will be difficult to find any information on.

There is another number that you might have more success with. Look at the back of the freezer, and there should be a removable plate that will allow access to the compressor. There should be a manufacturer's tag on the compressor with model#, serial#, date of manufacturer, etc for the compressor itself. With the freezer being as aged as it is, the compressor manu. may not have information there either.

Cubic feet can be eyeballed, or measured out. take a tape measure and measure the width of the interior compartment. Then measure the length, and height. For this purpose, ignore the hump or box where compressor sits. Length * Height * Width = cubic feet (if you measured in feet). If you want a more exact number, also measure the compressor hump as well, and subtract that number from the first.

Good Luck!

get a measureing tape measure inside dimensions multiply them together eg: a freezer with an inside dimension of 2' X 2' X 3' would equal 12 cubic feet if want an exact value measure in inches 24" X 24" X 36" = 20736 and divide by 1728 will give you cubic feet cool eh.. where did I get the 1728? (12 X 12 X 12) =1728 converts cubic inches to cubic feet Good Luck let me know when you pour that cement pad for under your shed I tell you how many yards to order

After looking over their website, which is not very helpful, it appears that it would be approximately 5.0 to 5.2 cubic feet. It seems that in most cases, the model number contains the size. Check it out at Danby.com

Hope this helps.

That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.
