How tight should the suction be on the door of chest freezer


Hello dotty26 - The door gasket should be securely closing with no resistance. You may try lubricating the door gasket with petroleum jelly to make it easier to open as well.

Chest freezer ice is filling up around the top of the inner lid


Turn it off, remove the stock, tap the sides with a block of wood and scrape to the bottom of the freezer with a dustpan and scoop it out. Refit the stock and switch back on. Takes 10 minutes. Check the lid seals properly once defrosted and check it's not accidentally in superfreeze mode.
