Question about U-Line 75R Refrigerator

Open Question

ULine 1175BEV door has a weak seal, does not close easily.

We just installed a ULine 1175 BEV unit. Unless we close the door very gently and purposely, the door does not seal or pops open. Since my kids never remember to gently ease the door closed, it is usually open. Now it is flashing E5, after being open all night.

Is there a way to add a stronger magnet close, or to retrofit the door so that it seals more tightly and automatically?

    Just started to notice how easy it is to open the fridge door -- no "suction" holding it closed. Looked at it quickly and looks like the seal is very weak at the bottom of the door. What to do?

no, you will need to replace the gasket. U-line gasket is easy to install. You can visit their website and under customer service you will see parts locator. The gasket just pulls out of the track and the new one pushes back in the track. www.u-line.com

The procedure is as stated in solution 1 by expert Ironfist. The older units had a metal plate with screws that you had to loosed the screws in the retaining plate by peeling the gasket in the opposite direction without tearing it to loosen or tighten the screws on the retaining plate. Then you just lifted the gasket off. When you go to reinstall as previusly stated by the other expert... start in the top center and work to the corners. Make the coners fit before moving down either side to the bottom corners. Again make the lower corners fit and finally install the gasket across the bottom. Once installed rub the gasket mounting area smooth with one finger or thumb.

You have humbled and hornored me with your request. If there is something that your really having difficulty with once you start this gasket change just repsond here and I will get back to you ASAP but, we will complete the task!
Thanks again,
Kelly

Freezer door won't close tightly and frost builds up


This is quite often caused by several factors ...
1] Worn door seals [REPLACE them] ...
2] Rusted door PINS [in older units] and/or worn PLASTIC BUSHES that support these pins [REPAIR or REPLACE them] ...
3] MISALIGNED and/or WARPED door [mostly in older units and/or if the kids hang off the door (especially young children) over an extended time ...
MOST doors are easily removed [but some are quite heavy and/or have electrical wiring/water lines etc. inside] so be careful. Usually you will need to remove the TOP hinge [screws usually under cover-plate] and then gently raise and lift-off the door from its bottom hinge pin. If you lift up the rubber door seal edge you will usually find a series of screws underneath. Just undo these to remove the inner shelf/door lining to replace the door seals. You can buy ready-made replacement seals from most major manufacturers and DIY ... or you can get a tradesman to do this for you [companies such as "SEAL A FRIDGE" can be found in your local phone directory or on-line] ...

How do I reset my 601R refridge so the suction seal comes on?


I assume your unit is cooling correctly since the following explanation is predicated on a properly working refrigerator.

There is no "suction seal" that comes on with your refrigerator, rather this the effect from the closing of the door and the rapid cooling of the warmer air (that entered with the door open) which causes a contraction that is the vacuum you feel. This will only last for a short time as the built-in venting (usually via the drain) will allow the low pressure to balance so the door opens normally. If this has ceased to occur it indicates there is an air leak somewhere which prevents the vacuum from forming. Replacing door gaskets can be tricky so be certain the door closes and seals all the way around. Using a dollar bill (or similar slip of paper), insert the bill between the door and cabinet, close the door on it and then gently pull the bill out. You should feel a slight resistance and have to tug to slide the bill out. Repeat this every few inches all the way around the door to locate any spots where the contact is not as firm. Typically this can happen on the hinge side, especially near the corners.

You might have a hinge problem, a warped door or some other problem that keeps the door from closing fully.

Not cooling


You can ohm the compressor to see if it is shorted but if the compressor is running it cannot be the overload or relay , if not running sometimes you can pull the relay and shake it if you hear any rattling in it it is bad

Refrigerator door does not stay closed. When the freezer door is closed the refrigerator pops open.


The fridge and freezer share their airspace, so when you close one there is a slight increase in pressure in the other unit. (Much like opening a window can cause a door open/close in your house due to pressure change/air movement) The magnet in your seal of the door is weak and unable to resist the pressure change. The seal should be changed.

Could also be that the door is not shutting properly in the first place due to sagging or skewed hinges that need adjustment/replacement and while shutting just may not be getting a complete seal that it should be.

Frig door does not stay closed


When you say that it will not stay closed, what exactly do you mean? That the door seal does not meet the cabinet, that there is a gap? Is the door warped? Does it appear to be out of line with the hinges on the top and bottom? Is the space around the door when shut and looking at the front pretty much equal all the way around? I mean, when shut, does it appear that there is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the cabinet showing all around the door when shut? Has someone swung or leaned or tugged on the door, or closed the door or tried to close the door and something was keeping either the top or the bottom pushed out? There are adjustments on the hinges, at the attachment points to the cabinet and to the door itself. You may be able to adjust the hinge plates in or out and up and down to make the door seal better. And the box should be about half a bubble out of level, front to back, or with a slight angle front to back, in order to help the weight of the door seal to the cabinet of the refrigerator. If the door is warped, you may be able to determine which way it is bent, out at top, out a bottom, side to side, ect. and take it off the hinges and gently attempt to straighten this bend. If you are careful, and can determine there is warping at the top or bottom, you may be able to "straighten" the door while attached to the hinges. Gentle pressure is the procedure, GENTLE, GENTLE. Don't get the BIG HAMMER out and go to banging away. Just a push up here, and a tug down there, and you may be able to cure this fairly easy. You must first determine which way the door is warped, and then move it back the other way. It should seal the gasket to the cabinet, not so much attach the door to the cabinet edges, but a firm seal that takes a tug to open. And no air gaps. Are the products inside the refrigerator "sweating". This is the drawing of warmer room air into the cabinet and condensation forming. The door needs to seal in order to keep the cold air in, and the outside air OUT. I an extreme warping, you may have to replace the door, or use bungee straps to keep it shut. which will be a pain, removing those every time you need in it. I would try and determine where it may be bent or warped, and gently bend it back the other way a little at a time till I have the seal connecting all the way around. Once there, QUIT. No more bending. When the seal connects all the way around, you are finished. Problem solved. I wish you luck and hope that you can solve this fairly easy. Remember, be Gentle. It will warp easily. And no hanging on the door!

Door not closing properly


Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff
