Has the lid been stretched too far back at one time? you may have bent hinges; if not then...
has the machine been unplugged and left in the sun or heat for a while? the insulation in the lid could expand and cause the metal around it to bend causing a uneven seal.
another thing could help; try to adjust the hinges tighter.

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.

I have a Sears Coldspot chest freezer Model #1869. The door doesn't seal properly and ice builds up within the door and the seal becomes even worse. The freezer itself works fine.


A precut seal will be expensive so please don't expect the price to be reasonable should you find one. Sears uses a longer number to list model numbers like 312.215478 as an example. Where can I find my model number? Let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer items have frost all over them.


A door gasket is the most likely cause with it letting in moist air from the house. The gasket should be snug on a dollar bill all the way around the door.

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is...


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. When the opposite door is closed air is trapped and forced out the other door pushing it open.
The door seals contain a magnetic strip that hold the door to the fridge, these magnetic strips have lost their strength, to test this use a shhet of paper. Open the door, place the sheet of paper across where the door closes, shut the door, then slide the paper out. If the paper comes out without any resistance then the door seal needs to be replaced.

    Freezer is not defrosting


    1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
    2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
    3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
    4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
    5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
    6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
    7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
    8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.
