I bought a freezer second hand when I got it home the seal was not sealed and the plastic was detached so I thought I could just seal it with sealent but then the insulation fell out it was extremly iced and wet so I through it out but would like to replace it,dont know with what kind and the one they had had paper on the back which way should I put it in the paper over the wires on the metal side or towards the plastic cover side. And should I really put insullation over wires.?or just around it?

Bought the same freezer from Home Depot, door would not open did find with a bit of detective work that if you place your fingers between the door gasket and the shell of the freezer you can break the glue type seal then door works fine. You must go across top and down both sides.
oh wow . i have the same freezer with same exact problem. i bought it brand new. i can definately see the seal on top is not installed properly. i always thought it was only my freezer but i guess its a manufacturing issue.
try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.
Good day, Unlikely you would be able to repair if the inner liner is coming apart. A local appliance parts house may be able to supply universal gasket to fit to the machine but again, if the inner liner is bad it could prove to be fruitless.
Oddly enough, if you visit supermarkets you will see chest type freezers with no top at all. Seems like a terrible loss, but it's not. Cold air falls, hot air rises. When the freezer generates cold air it doesn't spill out the top. It settles into the bottom of the freezer, and stays there. Likewise, warm air rises and has no interest in going into the freezer cavity. Bottom line. Very little loss. If appearance doesn't matter, and you can get it close, you should be able to continue to use it. Your choice, but I thought you would like to know the physics involved here and how it does or doesn't affect you.
If the door seal does not seal completely, replace it. This is very important for freezers.

Home Depot and Lowes is a definite no.
If you are careful, open the door 90 degrees and place your leg against the bottom corner inside of the open door and your hand at the top corner, then GENTLY push inward. You should be able to feel and see the move or twist. Then close the door to test for proper sealing. Another way to adjust the door is to loosen the screws behind the door seal and twist,but this usually unnecessary if you do the leg trick properly.
