Question about Hotpoint 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side No-Frost Refrigerator with Dispenser CSX22GRBWW

1 Answer

When door is slammed shut it no longer closes and stands slightly ajar until it is carefully pushed all the way shut.

Normally we just gave the door a push and it closed - it no longer does that but stops just before closing.  Is this the seal or what?  Model is CSX20E 19.7 cu ft.

Greetings,
there should be a way to shut it off totally...check to see if any water is frozen in the icemaker fill tube coming into the icemaker..if so, use a hair drier to melt ice for temp service. if there is ice build up in tube...you will need a new solenoid....be careful, it may not be solenoid...sometimes its the icemaker itself...

My LG refrigerator (LRTN 19320WW) top freezer door ajar when the bottom cooler door closes. I think there is a connecting air tunnel between the freezer and cooler section that when the cooler is shut,...


The doors have tabs that push on the switches that turn the light off when the doors are closed. These doors have not been installed properly. I fixed the problem by shimming the bottom door up using washer at the lower hinge rod. Or yo can tape a bit of plastic to the tab on your door so that it makes good contact with the light swutch.

My freezer door pops open when i shut the fridge door


make sure the fridge is tilted back a little so doors close with a little push by raising the front legs,also put some weight on the door, fill a bottle with water or any kind of heavy thing you want,this will hold the freezer door in place when you shut the fridge door

Whirlpool gd5thgxks01 door does not auto close


You need to level the refrigerator slightly backwards so the weight of the door closes it automatically. The front legs are adjustable, so just turn them until the door closes on its own.

Freezer door won't stay shut


This indicates that you do not have good airflow and return airflow between your freezer and refrigerator sections. That is why the pressure from closing one door is causing the other one to pop open.

Check the drain tube on the back of the machine to make sure it is not clogged or blocked with frozen water inside. Also check any return air flow vents inside the unit for clear ice.

Bottom drawer does not properly close


Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).

Freezer door pops open.


normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy

im not sure about the alarm but im going to assume its a door ajar alarm tilt the fridge back using the adjusters on the front wheels till you can open the doors about 1/4 let them go and it will close its self fridges are air tight and some times when you shut one door the air it pushes will slightly open the other the installation inst say level the unit but its better to have them leaned back the lights probably turn of auto if a door is ajar give that a try and let me know please

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.
