GE fridge magnetic strip in right hand door needs to be re-installed, how can i do that?

The magnetic strip (very dark brown) is usually embedded inside a similar square hollow tube all the way around the door gasket. For it to have come out, there has to be a cut, slice or hole in the outer coating of the gasket. Press all the way around the gasket and you should feel the hollow spot where the gasket came out. It will feel solid where the magnetic strip is still in there.

Hotpoint quadrio fridge bulb not working

Hello Donna;

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

Ok, lets fix the problem:

1.) The light bulb is a special bulb designed to operated in cold temperatures. Some food markets carry them. They cost $10.00-$12.00 each. A normal household bulb will fail.

2.) Assuming you have the correct light bulb. With the refrigerator door open, is the light on? Push the light switch, does the light go off? Light switches either have a small whit plunger or a curved actuator.

3.) Ok, before we assume a bad switch. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the light bulb. With a flat head screw driver, lift the copper contact in the bulb socket just a little bit, to make sure the copper contact is not depressed and not making contact with the bulb. Put the bulb back in, plug your refrigerator back in. Does the bulb light?

4.) Now we have narrowed the problem down to the light switch. The light switch is normally mounted on the inside wall. It may also be part of the top door hinge assembly (Push pin). If it is in a bottom freezer it is located on the inside top liner in the middle. These switched have pop in retaining clips. With a small flat head screw drive or a peeling knife gradually pry the switch out. You will see either two or three connectors. Remove the connectors noting how the wire leads are attached, The wire leads are short. Be carful not to let they fall down into the liner wall. Lets check the switch, if you have a multi-meter, set your meter to the lowest Ohms. With one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other switch contact, you should get a reading of '0' Ohms. Anything else then the switch is bad.
Oh, you do not have a multi-meter, rest assured if you check the above you have a contact switch problem. Get the model number of your unit. Usually located on the fresh food section wall. Call you local appliance parts supplier and get a new switch.

If you have a push pin switch in the top door hinge, there are either 1 or 2 screws to be removed to remove the hinge cover access the switch.

Samsung has magnetic contact switches. In the door gasket, as with all door gaskets there is a flexible magnet strip. This strip makes contact at the top of the refrigerator front frame. In this case the magnet door gasket strip may be broken and had slipped out of position. In the case you must replace the door gasket. You can physically feel this magnet strip.

Water drops under top door always!


That is strong indication that the magnets inside of the door gasket(s) are weak and aren't holding tight to the door to seal it. The door gasket(s) need to be replaced.

Door doesn't self close on Kitchenaid Superba frig

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

The refrigerator door side does not shut tightly. The gasket seems to be ok and we leveled the unit. Still not shutting tightly like the freezer side which seems to have a magnetic pull to assist close....

Check bottom hinge cam riser located on bottom hinge the pin that goes inside the door it's plastic it's a 2 piece part 1 part goes over hinge pin and the other goes inside door hole. They get worn and break. If you replace this make sure you get both parts until you do try adj. top door hing to get the door tighter.

Door on my samsung frig' will creep open

The fridge needs to have a slight tilt back so the door will close with ease!! also check and clean the door gaskets and metal surface that the gasket touches when the door is closed because there is a magnet inside the gasket and it will make a nice tight seal if all the surfaces are clean.If the gasket is torn it should be replaced

Hi I have a GE side by side and the frig door is not closing / sealing properly. Any ideas? John

close the door and test for drag on all sides. you may need to realign the door hinge adjustment. Just check the clearence around the doors, make sure the doors don't drag. you may need to tweek the doors if they apear to be sprung. last thing is to check the magnet and make sure its strong enough to pull the door closed. I use a dollar bill and slide it up and down and all around the door seal. the westinghouse repair man showed me this and it stuck with me. well i hope i was of some help thank you sawdust46

replace the switch before the seal, nothing wrong with gasket., you may need to raise the refrig door a bit by , remove the door and install a small spacer to raise the door slightly for better contact

Gr142bp compact refrigator

Although this is unlikely not the problem, check the outlet (plug) make sure its getting good power and not fluctuating. If you are not sure, use an extension cord on a plug that you know is good. All this aside, moving the fridge can cause a problem if you layed it down on its side during transport and plugged it in immediately after turning up right. then you may have burnt out the compressor by not letting the oil drain back into the bottom of it. Basically the equivalent of the oil pan on a car. If it was transported upright and all that jazz, then check the fan in the back by the compressor. Sometimes insulation or other debris will get tangled up in the blades preventing the fan from running. If all this is good, then I will need some more info. to help you any further.
