I suspect your door is distorted and the seal is leaking.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

I have a kenmore upright freezer model 970-254326 bought in 2011 from sears. The door opens left to right but in my tiny apartment I NEED it to open from right to left just to put things in and get th


You should see some plastic plugs or holes for mounting bolts on the opposite side of the freezer case. The latch mechanism should adapt from one side to another.
You would remove the top hinge and then lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Then you would remove the bottom hinge and switch it to the other side. Place the door onto the bottom hinge and then install the top hinge on the other corner of the case to match.
You should be able to move the handle from one side to the other. The magnets in the doorseal should work as before to keep the door closed. The interior light is usually centered on the bottom to aid in reversing the door opening.

Freezer door has dropped, how do you raise it?


As there is no adjustment possible to raise the door, the likely culprit is a bent lower door hinge, or a damaged cam riser. Also, I've had calls where the freezer was in the basement, and due to an eneven floor, usually for the purposes of water drainage, this can sometimes cause the freezer cabinet to get out of whack.

Alarm


The alarm usually is telling you that the temperature inside the freezer is not low enough. Check the door seals with dollar bill. Shut the door on the bill and try to move it. Try all around the door. The bill should resist being pulled out. If you can't pull it out the door is too tight. If it comes out easily you have an air leak. you can adjust a freezer door by loosening the hinges, pushing the door into place and re-tightening the hinge.

How do i change my freezer door to open the other way


you will need to take the upper hinge off first, then the door will lift off the bottom hinge. Then take off bot hinge and move both hinges to the holes on the other side. As far as the handel goes, you may need to flip it over or switch the handel to the other side

Re: danby upright freezer 20.1 cubic ft., model #


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
