Hello there,
It is always the feet and their adjustment and floor must be level
From the user guide it says

;The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on
a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded freezer.
NOTE:It is VERY MPORTANT for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
To level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, half a bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. ;

Have a upright freezer and the meat on the top shelf is thawed out but the rest of the food on the lower shelves are frozen. Is it a vent problem


Either the door seal is bad or the freezer has a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor. Best to have an appliance tech check it. It won't take him long to locate the issue.

Why is my upright igloo freezer not staying close


The door sometimes warps and need to be lightly twisted back to where all four corners make contact and seal.
Your unit may need to be tilt back a bit so the door wants to close y itself, the front foot pegs are adjustable and can be turned to make the front higher or lower than the back side of the cooler, gravity closes the door when the unit is leaning back.

Frigidaire upright freezer door will not seal


Hi Chris, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble with the door sealing on your upright freezer. Many times this can be caused by the freezer not being leveled. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems. To level your upright freezer use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2 bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. I hope this information has been helpful.

Top is frozen lower shelves food is dethawing


One of two things is going on here, either the door is not closing properly (or some one left it open), check the seal all the way around especially at the bottom.

Or most likely you have a refrigerant (freon) leak that has left the charge low enough that you are unable to get it to cool throughout. A leak on this type of unit is usually in the evaporator in the corner where a weld was made. The evaporator is about $189.00, with refrigerant a new drier and supplies I bet it would run about $450.00 to repair.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model #253.9266411 there is a gap in the upper left side does anyone know how to adjust the door? The seal is fine


I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Will not seal. new from sears.


The description below is for a gap at the top of the door. Adjust the procedure for gap at bottom by "twisting" the door in the opposite direction.

Freezer door won't close at top


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.
