Samsung Freezer Door Alignment?

I got the "Fridge Fixer" door lock system, it's great.

Now all I need to do is correct the damage caused by the OEM freezer drawer lock only locking on one side. The drawer seems to be tweaked pretty good. I've a huge gap across the right 2/3 of the top. Lots of ice building up where the warm air is coming in, and it fails the "dollar bill test" miserably.

Searching the internet hasn't revealed any magic for aligning this freezer drawer. Got any magic?

I had to replace my freezer drawer facing. It comes off as one piece. So I would open drawer about 8” and do a line of sight to see if the facing is bent, which I doubt, or are the rails somehow out of alignment. You may have to remove the drawer facing which is attached by either 2 or 3 screws each side. Before you start this elimination process you need to empty the freezer. You need to be sure no frozen food is lodged in the wrong place causing the problem. When you open the drawer about 8” you should be able to pull the top drawer so it contacts the inside of the facing. If it does not then there is problem.

Hope this helps to get you started.

Did some checking, and determined I was leaking along the right side on the top freezer drawer gasket. The rest passed the dollar bill test.

I cut thin strips of business vcarf, folded them in half, and put them behind the gasket. Three did the trick. No more frost, hard ice cream, probably a lot less power used.
Problem solved.
