Not sure if you can't get around the furnace or it won't fit though the 
door.  If the latter and you only need an inch or so, consider removing 
the door AND FRAME.  The rough opening is at least two inches wider, 
probably more, than the frame opening.  Removing and rehanging a door 
isn't that difficult, probably easier than cutting up the freezer. Just 
mark where the trim goes so you can rehang the frame in the original 

Alternately you could disassemble the freezer.  Once the outer skin is 
removed it may fit through the door.
