Question about Danby 16.9 cu. ft. / 479 liter Upright Freezer DUF1656W
Hi, I have a Danby upright freezer (model #DUF1786W). It's advertised as having a lock, it's sold with a key - one problem - I can't find the lock! It's not in their literature, it's not in the manual! I've been to their site - no help there.
Can someone help me to lock this thing?
Probably there's a freon leak (refrigerant) that has to be fixed (remember this is a seal system and shouldn't leak)and then recharged.

The lower hinge on each door
may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this
assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not
seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if
it rises up when opened.
Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
