    Check the hinges to make sure they are fastened tightly.

    I am sure you could fit a rubber gasket on the inside of the door like you would have to do on a fridge to keep it closed. Just cut the gasket rubber to fit and glue it down.

    You could put a strip of Velcro with adhesive backing to the body and door to help keep it closed. I have done this on an old freezer and it works great.

    How old is the unit? Has to be a hinges are loose from opening/closing the door. Are they aligned? Are the screws loose? Also is rubber gasket seal broken/cracked? Those would be the only two issues I could suggest.

    It is either the hinges or the gasket. Check and see if the hinges are peoperly aligned and tight, inspect the gasket and see if it flexible. Other than that you could attach velcro to make sure it seals.
