Freezer door opens


This sounds like an alignment problem. Loosen the hinges slightly and place the door in the closed position and duck tape it in place. Tighten the hinges and check it for seal. Door is heavy by itself so empty it first and work with some help.

SAFELY REMOVING DOORS FOR SHIPPING


Good Morning Jill,

I see that you are trying to remove the doors on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23R4A, for shipping purposes. Below are the instructions you will need to follow for both the refrigerator and freezer doors.


DOOR REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS:
If it is necessary to move the refrigerator through narrow doorways, follow these steps to remove the doors.
IMPORTANT: Before you begin, turn your freezer and fresh food controls to "O" and remove electrical power cord from the wall outlet. Remove any food from the door shelves.

1. Disconnect electrical supply.
2. Open both doors, then remove toe grille.
3. Close doors.

To Remove Refrigerator Door:

1. Remove top hinge cover screw on refrigerator door and remove cover.
2. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
3. Remove top hinge and lift refrigerator door off bottom hinge pin. Set door aside.
4. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
5. Reverse this procedure to reinstall refrigerator door.

To Remove Freezer Door:

1. Disconnect water line coming from lower hinge of freezer door at connection located under front of freezer: Press outer ring against face of fitting, then pull to remove tube.
2. Remove top hinge cover screw on freezer door and remove cover.
3. Disconnect wiring harness connector plug at top hinge: place your thumbs on flat sides of each connector and bend both parts back and forth, then with firm grasp, pull both pieces apart.
4. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
5. Remove top hinge, allowing wiring harness to pull through hinge and lift freezer door off of bottom hinge pin. Lay door down flat to avoid kinking water line.
6. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
7. Reverse this procedure to reinstall freezer door.

When both doors have been reinstalled, connect water line by inserting tube and push until mark touches face of fitting, replace toe grille and plug in electrical power cord. Turn both temperature controls to center position. Adjust settings as necessary. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Side by side kenmore refrigerator no suction on produce side


There is no suction normally. The door has a spring type mechanism to keep it firmly closed, and the magnetic seal takes up the slack. Check the door/ hinge is straight and tight and look at the top of the hinge. There is a small cylinder about 5mm high with a number of dimples in it. One of these should have a pin in it that operates the spring mechanism; if it is missing the door will not close well.

Also make sure there is nothing in the fridge protruding, stopping the door from closing and the seal sticking!

Refrigerator door will not shut. Seal is clean and free of debris. 2 joints at top and bottom also seem fine, but pops open the minute it's closed. Any ideas?


At the top or bottom,one of the hinges is spring loaded.It varies from brand to brand.Try removing the door from it`s hinges.Then manually move the hinges to the closed position.Replace the door,that should work.

Crosley side by side. freezer/refrigerator. Has ice maker/water. Question is why is the fridge side freezing things. Its on lowest setting? I tried cleaning out the coils that were under the fridge.


there is a damper control on the top left of the fridge compartment that may be stuck in the open positin open the fridge door and turn off the unit completely you should be able to here the damper door close. if you do not it may need to be replaced,and or your thermostat for the fridge needs to be replaced.

Changing the opening side of the door


You will need to reverse the hinges, it should be the top for the freezer, and the one in the middle support, both the freezer and the large door, you will not only move this to the other side but you may have to turn it over, and the bottom hinge just move it to the other side. You will need to start with the large door, because the hinge support the bottom and top door, the bottom first, next the middle hinge, place the freezer door on the middle hinge and the top hinge to sesure the freezer door, move the handles, the holes for the screws will be on the other side with a little cover that you will have to remove just have to pull them out.

Refrigerator top freezer door slightly rubs to inside freezer bottom while closing the door that opens on right side. Due to this after closing the freezer door, the door opens less than a mm near the left...


I think I can help. Usuly the doors have been swapped around in this case. look closely at the freezer door on hinge side. there should be a small metal piece that covers the hinge to prevent anything from jamming hinge. this shield also serves as a spacer. this is what sets the door at the correct height. if the piece is missing you can have your local appliance dealer order one for you. it only takes a few minutes ts to install. you will need to remove the freezer door to do this. Hope this helps and good luck.

Freezer door opens When you close refir. door


The freezer door is relatively light weight, and when the fresh foods door closes, the air has to go somewhere and the easiest escape route is to momentarily pop the freezer door open. The door should close again quickly. If is does not, make sure the freezer door liner is not touching the top or bottom, causing dragging resistance, and make sure that the front leveling legs are raised up so the door closes by it's self when released from a 45 degree opening. Sometimes the hinge side gasket rubs and holds things up also, especially if that area was cleaned. If that is the case, rub a film of wax on the hinge side gasket to lubricate it. Additional weight in the freezer door will also help.

Freezer door opens just a tiny bit when i shut the fridge side anybody know how to fix this


to be honest with you, close the door more gently. there are air vents between the frig and the freezer, when you close the frig door its forcing air into the freezer which in turn forces the door open some. the air has to get out so thats what it does. i hear this complaint alot.
