HI thanks for your question if you pull the gasket back you will reveal screws, loosen the screws at the top and the sides. put your foot at the bottom of the freezer door and force the door toward the top. hold there and tighten the screws. this should solve the problem. thanks the appliance doc

SOURCE: Refrigerator Door not closing properly

Hi, No the door is not adjustable like you might think Since it is smaller than the other door any alignment problem is really visible. First do check the bracket to make sure you didn't lose a screw and that the brackets are solid and don't move. The problem is the level of either the refrigerator or the floor. If you have a 3 ft bubble level put in on the top of the refrigerator along the front, NOT on the door. There are feet on the bottom front corners of the refrigerator, you may have to remove the plastic grill to access them but depending on the model and age of your refrigerator it should be attached with clips. The feet screw in and out but with weight they won't move easily so you may have to jack the front a little, remove some stuff or try a crescent wrench. Once the front is level check the front to back, the refrigerator needs to tilt slightly to the rear so the door when partially open will close by itself. Again you didn't give a model so on some the rear feet are not adjustable and some are. I suspect you may have adjustable and the box is not squared up. If after adjusting the front and the entire refrigerator tilts like an uneven table leg then you have to adjust the feet likewise. Use your level diagonally across the top both directions, it should be exactly the same. If you have non adjustable and they are uneven it is the floor and you have to use shims under the low foot. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Bottom freezer door on our LG is out of

The easiest way to fix that is to pull the freezer door all the way out and give it a good little tug, you will see the plastic covers on the side rails there will be a little gap about one inch on each side make sure those gaps are even. Your door should be aligned

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..
Good Luck!

The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

Our side by side freezer door opens slightly


That is a common occurrance for side by side refrigerators. Closing the fresh food door is like having your car windows closed and closing the door. You can feel the air pressure on your ears. In the refrigerator, the air passes through the duct and into the freezer pushing the door open. The magnet on the door gasket should keep it closed. But it may be the freezer door needs the hinges adjusted to the door seats better when closed. Take the plastic cover off the top hinge and you can loosen the screws (don't take them out) and adjust the door slightly (so it looks even between both doors) and tighten the screws up. The top of the door should be level with the top of the unit, and the gap between the doors even the whole way down.

Top freezer door does not close tight


Sounds like the top hinge is loose. If the hinge has a cover, remove it then hold the door in the correct position and tighen the hinge screws.

Bottom freezer door moves top to bottom by moving handle in & out


Hi, most models have adjustment screws near the track connected to the door if this is a slide out door. If this is a swing out door, you might be able to twist the door back in shape.
If the gap is only in the corner of the door, try inserting a piece of paper towl rolled/folded up behind the gasket to help stretch it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
