The freezer door is not sealing down at the bottom. There is nothing in the way.
First clean (really clean it well!) both the seal and the door/cabinet edge to allow for the magnetic seal to properly seal against the door. If that doesn't help, you may have to get the seal to relax by using a hair dryer to warm up the seal so it relaxes and goes back into shape.
Also check to see if the seal is cracked or torn, as that could be preventing a proper seal also. If that's the case, you might have to get a new door seal and replace it.
Normally, I find that most door seals are just really dirty and have been pinched (for years) causing them to lose their shape and by taking some time to relax the seal and get it back like it should be, helps resolve the problem.
Another issue could be that the bottom hinge pin bracket has lossened up and is allowing the bottom of the door to not fully engage with the cabinet section. This wil require you to readjust the hinge pin to make sure it is both level and in the correct position. Please consult your owner/installation manual for the proper sequence - it's pretty easy to do, just follow the maker's recommendations.
