I have a kitchenaid refrigerator with single door on top and pull out freezer drawer on bottom. When I open the refrigerator door it will swing all the way open and hit the counter top . How do adjust it...


It sounds like your refrigerator is out of level in the direstion of your door hinge. Under the front side, in behind the louver at the bottom will be two adjusting screws. Either raise on the hinge side or lower on the non hinge side. Or both. this should get the door to the point you should be able to let it loose and the door should, from any position, shut by itself.
Hope this helps.

The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

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

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

How do I raise the level of my refrigerator door to be even with freezer door?


Thank you for your inquiry, Leland Dodd!

I see that you are having difficulty in raising the level on your Frigidaire refrigerator, FGHC2331PF. I have reviewed your manual and there are two types of adjustment for either front rollers or lower hinge. If you are having issues with adjusting the doors or leveling your refrigerator I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly level your refrigerator. Best of luck! -Matt

I know this seems like a minor problem, but the fact that the freezer door on my Superba side-by-side is about 1/4 inch higher than the fridge door means that it constantly bumps on the cabinet door above....


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The fact of the matter of the doors being at different heights is typically an indication the unit isn't level and can be simply corrected by way of screwing the legs/wheels up or down.

If you remove the grill below the doors you should see the wheels and the adjustment screws/bolts. #2 is the wheel, # 3 & 5 are the adjustment screws to raise or lower the unit.

i.e.

macmarkus_237.jpg

They are typically a 5/16" or 3/8" hex head/slotted combination. Try adjusting one or the other with small adjustments until you notice the two doors starting to level to each other.

Let me know how you manage and I'll try to help you in any manner i can going forward. Good luck.

Thank you for choosing FixYa today.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How do you adjust the doors to closed completely?


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.

One door lower than other, how to adjust door


The door can be adjusted with shims on the hinge post or by adjusting the cabinet by raising the front corner opposite the higher door. Keep in mind the doors are not designed to be perfectly even.If the difference is the depth of a quarter or less it is good. The seals making good contact all the way around is more important. Eric

Leveling old refrigerator


The refrig does not have to be level, as a matter of fact, they tend to work (doors on most refrig's) if the front is a bit higher than the back. If you pop off the lower grill, you will see that the front rollers have a bolt that runs up through the lower frame. Turning on the end of that bolt with a 3/8 inch wrench will allow adjustment of an inch or so, up or down, depending on where it is at now. Only the front rollers are adjustable this way. Back rollers would have to be shimmed to adjust. Check the door hinges to see if the hinge and corresponding hinge cam riser (WR2X4901) are worn. (these parts raise the door slightly as it is opened, and help close the door as the door drops back down when closing.)

Check to see if refrigerator door is even with freezer door at top, or is it lower. If lower, the light switch may not be contacted fully. Remove toe plate , bottom front on fridge. Under refrigerator door bottom hinge is a threaded rod. Adjust this to raise door to make level.
