Checking for Items Preventing Door or Lid Closure

How to check for items preventing door or lid closure on your  Whirlpool freezer

If your freezer door or lid is not closing properly check to make sure nothing is blocking it.  Some common items include: 

  • Packing or shipping material
  • Food packages
  • Shelves or baskets out of position

Ensuring the door or lid is closing correctly will help with:

  • Allowing moisture and air in, potentially causing excessive frost build up
  • Maintaining temperature and compressor run time
