Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
My new GE refrigerator (gshs5kgx) fresh food door opens 180 degrees. This causes it to swing back and hit the kitchen door behind it when open. This is a brand new refrigerator, so it is not broken. Is there a door stop already on the door that can be adjusted, or is there a part i can purchase to adjust the width of the door swing?
Have you noticed any ice built up on the rear freezer wall? it is very likely that you have a defrost problem situation,IE: Heater,Defrost Thermostat,Defrost Timer any failure in these components will cause an icing problem and therefore you will not get sufficient air flow to the Food Compartment

Most refrigerators do not have anything to prevent the door from opening all the way. To minimize this , adjust the front leveling legs up enough so the door won't stay open by itself. The refrigerator doesn't have to be level, it just should not rock. Most are adjusted this way to let the door shut itself. This should help. If this doesn't work. make a strap with small chain or seat belt type material. Attach from the bottom of the door. Make it just long enough to not let the door open past 90 degrees.

You're frozen up. Defrost completely. Then, clean your condenser. Make sure to never leave open containers in the fridge...water condenses into ice. If you still have problems, you may be low on gas.

SOURCE: problems with fresh food side
go to nearest supply house or a good hardware store buy a themometer in the domestic ref, temp range. then compare it to read out.question is you house at 77 degrees. no way will domestic side have such an instant change in reading, the walls of the ref keep a long time fix on temp change.trust the themometer.

Your fresh food lower door hinge cam assembly has failed and needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to replace, really... but you have to remove the FF door to get to it. <---which is VERY simple to do. But first thing first, right? You'll obviously need the replacement part on hand prior to the repair, so the part number is WR02X10779. You can see what it looks like here (you could also order it here if you don't have a local appliance parts retailer).
OK, now that you have the cam assy., Empty out all the goodies that you have stored in the FF door shelves. Then using a sturdy step stool, remove the upper hinge cover. Below the cover, you'll find three more screws, remove them (just so you know ahead of time... after you remove the last of the 3 screws, the door is no longer "attached" to the frame, so hold on to the door while removing the last one, OK?). Now all ya have to do is lean the door forward (from the top) and lift it off of the lower hinge/cam assembly.
Now that the door is off, all that's left to do is remove the old cam assy., install the new one and rebuild everything! Easy Breezy! You'll be in and out of this job within 20-30 minutes.
Oh yeah... one other thing. When you replace the door and are putting the top hinge back on, put all 3 screws in but don't tighten them yet. You'll need to "level" the door and THEN tighten them. Just lift the fridge door handle 'til the top of the door is level with the Freezer door, tighten the screws while holding the door in this position, deal? Cool.
Hope this helps!
