If you're loading up the door with a large amount heavy items such as gallons of milk, water, juices, etc. - the door may be sagging on its hinges.

Typically, there are several screws that hold the top and bottom hinges to the fridge frame. While supporting the weight of the open door with blocks or books, check to see of the screws have loosened up or if the hinge has slipped on the fridge cabinet. It may be helpful to partially / fully unload groceries / liquids from the door.

You may be able to detect that something has happened if there is space between the top hinge and door. This suggests that the door has slipped slightly and may be rubbing on something. Look for scrapes, scratches and filings in the area of the bottom hinge. These are a tip off that something has changed. Try lifting the door up. Is there "play" between the hinges that allows the door to slide up and down? A little bit is normal, but too much indicates a sagging or bent (not common) hinge. You may have to lift and support the door to take up the "play"; then loosen the bottom hinge's screws and slide the hinge up until it is snug against the bottom of the door. Tighten the screws firmly to hold the hinge in place. This should lift the door back to where it was (or close to it) and prevent any rubbing or scraping that may have been happening before.

Lastly, make sure that the doors seals haven't shifted or become damaged in such a way as to interfere with the door closing completely. Good luck!

Sounds like a door problem not an opener problem. Pull the emergency release on the opener and make sure the door itself is operating correctly. Soulds like the assist on the door needs adjusted.

The door no longer automaticly closes.


Hi,

It is usually the cable that breaks. The cable attaches the door to the spring. But unfortunately the dishwasher would need to come out at least a few inches to get to the cable and springs. I have put together some instructions that might help describe what needs to be done, if you want to take a look at the link and let me know what you think I can try and help you with it.

My freezer door pops open everytime i shut my refrigerator door


Good day,
First, make sure the gasket including the bottom is clean, as well as the mating surface of the machine itself.
The machine itself should be checked for being level. Side to side, if it's a top freezer model, the hinge side cannot be lower than the other side.
As well, front to back it should be leveled but with a slight tilt to the rear to assist in closing.
If none of this helps, then the magnets in the gasket itself have gotten weak and the gasket needs replaced.

Notes: Heavier items keeped in the freezer door will help to a degree. Closing the door slower as well.

The reason this happens, is that with the main door open, then closed, a large volume of air is forced into the fresh food compartment. There are vents that are open between the freezer section and fresh food compartment. This large volume of air when closing the main door is compressed into a smaller area, causing the problem.

Fridge door does not close on it's own. possibly missing spring.


There are no springs to assist refrigerator doors to close.

The fridge doors can be made to close themselves by adjusting the height of the feet of the fridge. "Pitching" the fridge slightly away from the hinge will accomplish this. If the foot on the hinge side of the fridge door is slightly higher than the foot on the handle side of the door, the door will usually want to close by itself. If the fridge is a side-by-side type and this is done, one door will close by itself and the other will want to remain open (or open fully). In this case, it's best to have the fridge as close to level as possible.

I hope this was helpful.

I have a 1999 Mercedes S320, Do you know how the trunk and doors will automatically compress when you close them. For example when I close my trunk it is suppose to compress tightly once I manually close...


There are 2 pneumatic pumps in your vehicle. one is vacuum and is for your central locking, located under your rear seat bench. The other is pressure and is called your closing assist pump. It is in the trunk behind the rear liner. It also operates you reverse antennas(optional). Your doors and trunk lid are closed by pressure valves that work like little teeter totters. There is an updated relay called a convenience relay located in the right side of the trunk. It stores all the window paramers(for express up and down) as well as your closing assist parameters. In the right side of the trunk there is a fuse box. If you remove the closing assist fuse( I beleive it is # 15) for 15 seconds and then reinstall it, the parameters for your closing assist will be reset. It is possible that your vehicle already has the updated relay(called a relay but actually a microprocessor) and there is a leak in the system. After reinstalling the fuse you can see what doesn't work( one of the doors or trunk,reverse antenna) and isolate the faulty component. If everything works o.k. let it be because they have always been problematic and when they happen to fail just reset it. hopefully I have been helpful.

Liftmaster 1/2 - Will not close


What usually happens is a sensor gets bumped so that they no longer are pointed at one another. They must be for the light on the second sensor to come on. Tweak them and see if you can get the light to come on. If you can't you either have bad wiring going to that sensor or the sensor itself has quit working.

I have a whirlpool the refrigerator door will not stay close.


It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.

Try to raise by adjust the 2 front footing slightly higher than the back, this will tilt the unit slightly backwards. That will help the door to close back by itself.

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.
