Unable to Level Freezer - Chest and Upright Freezer

Possible Solutions

Why is it important to level the freezer?

A freezer that is not leveled correctly and/or does not have the doors properly aligned could have some of the following concerns:

  • Doors unable to close or seal properly
  • Frost build-up or moisture problems
  • Temperature fluctuation 
  • Unable to properly aligned the doors
  • Door switch unable to actuate correctly

    Level the freezer from side to side and front to back so that the lid will seal properly. 

Is the floor under the freezer level?

Check to make sure the floor under the freezer is level.  If the floor is not level shims may need to be used to properly level the freezer.
