If the model # is correct, I don't think there is much if any adjustment on the spring tension. I would double check to make sure the door is properly installed on the unit. The door is removeable and if it is not reinsalled properly or never was it will not shut right. Check your manual if you have one. Other common causes are the door gasket may be binding the door, check the gasket to make sure it isn't folded over or torn etc.. the most common thing I have seen is when the door was open someone or something put some weight on the door and the door may actually be warped. For a tech this is a lot of fun trying to figure out which part is warped.

Why Bottom freezer drawer wont stay open

Freezer and refrigerator doors aren't usually supposed to stay open. The units are usually installed so that they're slightly tilted to the back to make sure gravity will close the doors if you forget to. If you are SURE - I mean really SURE - that you want your freezer to stay open you should check the drawer rails to see if they're adjustable; if they are, trying raising the back of the rails (or lowering the front). If the rails are not adjustable, try adjusting the front feet of your fridge so that the front of the whole unit is just a tiny bit lower than it is now. Don't lower it too much! If you do, the doors won't stay closed; they'll leak cold air and you'll lose food.

My garage door is a chamberlain lift master. We had to pull the latch and manually close it last week. When I opened it, my super-strength:) threw it open too fast and I think I threw off the main drive...

No need to - the unit has adjustments to control where the door stops on closing. You need to back off a tad on the closing setting so that the door stays closed.

After a car accident the front passenger door on a 1996 Ford Taurus will not shut and will only stay "closed" when tied or bungied. I need to know if the entire door needs to be replaced or if it can be...

if there is damage to the door, I would go ahead and replace it, because it could either be the latch broke, or the door needs to be adjusted. If the latch is broken then it has to be replaced, if it just needs adjustment, then you could do that without replacing the door, although if you are going to go through the trouble you might as well replace it anyway.

Door opens after closing

If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem but if the door is hitting the floor and reversing and the main light is not flashing then the door is closing too far and the safety thinks it has hit something. On the side of the motor unit you will find 2 controls. One of these is the 'down limit'. Turn this in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover until the door closes but does not reverse.

Garage door won't close by remote in cold weather

There are ususally two adjustments on garage door openers...
One is for the pressure and the other is for the travel. Assuming that the travel adjustment is properly adjusted...

On a cold day things are a little tighter and it "wants" a little more downwards pressure to complete its cycle. Sorta like me in the morning -- I need a little coffee to get going on a cold morning.

Adjust the down pressure/force just enough to make the unit close properly. Do not over adjust the down pressure or you will find it won't stay closed. Sometimes the manufacturer doesn't make it too clear where this adjustment is, but you should be able to find it if you look around.

I have seen units that were installed for years all of a sudden need a little tweak of this adjustment.

Good luck

Refrigerator Door not staying closed

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.
