Re: Sagging door on 1 year old Hotpoint with top frezzer.
One year old is under warranty and service will come out and take care of the adjustment free!. Do not wait a minute because you only have a one year warranty on a brand new appliance today! That running is costing you alot of money cause the cold air is leaking out! bless you, ngafm please give me a good rating before you sign off, Thank you!

You might try loosening the screws on the hinge on top of your refrigerator and then lift up on the corner of the door away from the hinges and then re-tighten the screws. That will help put your door back in alignment and hopefully end your frosting. Hope this helps!
Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

i had the problem my self :) you need to take the freezer door out then the fridg door and add small ring like 1mm to the hinges of the fridg door poot all back and see if it rais the door a bit.... what i did is on the top of the freezer there is option to move the door from side to side ...the plastic that go into the freezer body its a ring with long tube.. i cut the tube and use that plastic :) good luck
Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
on the door thats sagging on top of the of the door is a cap some have a screw holding it....if not use a screwdriver at the back of the cover and pop it up then you have small bolts some have 2 but most have 3 just loosen up but no need to remove then pull towards the hinge to see it move again move to the to where level you can place something in the gap between the door or have someone hold the door in place then reverse order to complete
Step 1: If the door won't shut tightly, tip the refrigerator slightly backward by propping up the front of the unit or unscrewing the front leveling legs two complete turns. Experiment with this adjustment until the door stays closed, but don't tip the unit very far out of front-to-back level.
Step 2: If leveling doesn't work, tighten the hinge screws. You may have to open the door (especially the freezer door) to turn these screws. On some units, you may have to remove a hinge cap or trim to reach the screws; pry off the cap or trim with a screwdriver. Sagging and looseness can be corrected by shimming the door hinges. Loosen the hinge and place a hinge-shaped cardboard shim between the hinge and the door. Then tighten the hinge again. Sagging may also be caused by a wrongly placed shim. In this case, you can correct the problem by removing the shim. Experiment with the shims; you may be able to eliminate the sagging.
Step 3: If the door is warped, tighten the screws that hold the inner door shell to the outer door shell. You may have to change or adjust the door gasket after making this adjustment.
Step 4: Check the catch. Newer units have a magnetic catch on the door. If the door doesn't latch properly, remove the magnetic strike from the inner door shell and shim it slightly with a piece of thin cardboard. You may have to adjust the gasket to conform with the new shim.
