It may be necessary to remove the freezer door for passage through narrow doors. With each freezer there is an instruction sheet explaining the step-by-step procedure for door removal. Screw-type levelers are used to adjust the level of the freezer. Upright freezer models use a screw-type leveler that can be moved up and down by turning to the left or right. See Fig. 13-4.
The cabinet must be level side-to-side with a very slight tilt toward the rear. This will aid in obtaining a tight door gasket seal. If the cabinet is tilted toward the front, the weight of the door, plus the door food load, will result in poor gasket seal.
Do not locate the freezer adjacent to a stove or other heat source. Avoid an area that is exposed to direct sunlight for long periods.
