I have the same problem, but so far, I have no resolution to the problem. My model however; is MCUF88W. There is a 1-888-775-0202 telephone number, but when I called, there is a busy tone. I need a solution to the problem.
The freezer is only two years for crying out loud. No solution here, SORRY. HELP!!!!!!!!

Has this happened suddenly? Look at the shelves to see if there is a frost line. If the shelves that also carry the Freon appear to have a frost line your freezer may have a Freon leak. If there is a Freon leak it will be better to begin looking for a replacement freezer. Let me know what you see, Thanks Sea Breeze

Bought the same freezer from Home Depot, door would not open did find with a bit of detective work that if you place your fingers between the door gasket and the shell of the freezer you can break the glue type seal then door works fine. You must go across top and down both sides.

If You run Your finger in between the rubber seal that is resting on the freezer and the frame of the door , the rubber seal will break lose. When you open the door the seal is attache to the door.
Just had the same problem after unboxing.
Simple, just be sure to do the entire door.
