Can't open bedroom door

Hi All,

We can't seem to open one of the bedroom doors (house is about 2 years old). This problem seems to only happen when the heat is on in the house. The problem goes away when the heat is off.

    Thanks for the help.



    The problem only appears with the heat on - there's no lock on the door it's a bedroom door.

Check to see if the wood or the lock is binding. Try this:

Leave door open and turn on heat. After a few hours, try to close door and see if it's catching on the frame. If it is, plane the door where it is binding. You can check for binding by using chalk on the door and after closing it, see where the scrub marks are.

If it's the lock, take out the striker plate and using a chisel, make the cut out deeper. Install the striker plate and test it again.

Bad smell from fridge (not mouldy food)?


There is no danger if there is a leak, but the refrigerator will quit cooling. I suspect perhaps you have a dead something underneath or behind the refrigerator. I hope this helps... but I also suspect you have cleared the problem by now.

Frigidaire upright--"Hi temp" warning light on door. Don't know why freezer temperatures are so high (into 30s), food is thawing. Electrical seems to be fine. Have not noticed problems with door. New...


2 months old should still be under warenty.

Check the freezer fan by opening the freezer door and pressing the door switch and listing for the freezer fan sound. If no sound then the fan motor could be bad.

Look at the back wall too see if you have frost build up. If you do then you have a defrost problem.

If thees are not your problem you could have a seal system problem. (( freon leak ))

Top coil in upright freezer icing up


its a manual defrost freezer, it is normal to ice up, if it is unusually more than you have noticed over the past 40 years, see if the door liner is cracked around the screws under the gasket, if so put some washers there to reseal the door liner

My Maytag side by side fridge freezer is leaking at the bottom and ice is collecting at the bottom of the freezer. I cannot find any model number but think it's about 6 years old


The drain is clogged behind the wall in the freezer you can do one of three things take the back wall inside the freezer off and thaw the drain in the bottom and clear it out,Pay someone else to do this,or you can mover your food for a day unplug the unit open the freezer door and leave it off for 24 hours allowing the ice to clear from the drain,seems to happen about every five or six years with Maytags..

Upright freezer


sounds like your freezer isn't maintaining a constant (cold) temp. A variation from cold to warm would cause your problems. Normal opening the door and looking for the ice cream over and over would cause a gradual increase in glacier activity in the freezer. I don't know of any quick easy fix-but wait, how about checking the door gasket? Get a piece of paper, close the door on it, move the paper all around the door, testing to see if you can pull it out easily (bad gasket), or does the paper not want to come out?(good gasket) If the gasket seems ok, it may be time to retire the global ice cream warming freezer countrycurt0

Did you install the doors or a contractor? Sounds like the doors are not fitting the opening properly
