You should make sure the cable is not trapped under the freezer. However, you shouldn't shorten the cable unless it is absolutely necessary to do so. If this is your only option, we would recommend using a registered electrician. This gives you the peace of mind that if something does go wrong, the work is insured and their scheme operator can help you if you are not satisfied.
