    Check hinges, if ok!, Then you need new Gaskets.

    Check all over the gasket and see if it is clean, including all the little nooks and crannies and folds, I do this using a thin rag over a table knife or butter knife that I know won't cut the rubber. A good cleaning may help, or the gaskets just may need to be replaced.

    It could be your hinges need to be adjusted so the gasket fits evenly around the door. If you have done this and it is still not sealing, you can pry back the rubber seal and push in some foam to bulk it out a bit so the seal has contact. This can be done on older style freezers, not sure about newer ones.
