Lock Preventing Door from Sealing - Chest and Upright Freezer

Possible Solutions

Is the lock mechanism preventing the door or lid form closing?

(Style of lock may vary by model number)

  • To lock or unlock the freezer, you must hold the key in the lock while turning. The lock is spring loaded, so the key cannot be left in the lock.
  • Clear any frost or debris build up from lock mechanism that may be preventing door or lid from closing fully.
  • Unlock and open the door or lid, close and lock again.
