Why won't the freezer door close properly?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
If the door won't close properly, make sure nothing is blocking the door. Check the door seal and make sure it's not twisted or coming off. Make sure no part of the seal is bunching up in the opening.
Sometimes the hinges go out of adjustment. You can sometimes loosen the hinge, re-seat the door properly, and tighten the hinge again. Sometimes there are little plastic spacers on the hinge or hinge pins. They can wear down and prevent the door from closing properly. You can usually determine what the exact problem is with a close visual inspection.
