SUB ZERO 550, FF DOOR SWINGS OPEN TOO FAR

MY FRIEND HAS A SUB ZERO 550, THIS IS A BOTTOM FREEZER, SINGLE DOOR ON TOP, LH HINGES. THE FRIG DOOR SWINGS OPEN. THE WHITE DOOR CAMS WERE BROKEN TOO, I TOOK THE DOOR OFF AND REPLACED THEM BUT THAT DIDN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM. I CALLED SUB ZERO PARTS LINE AND ORDERED A DS90 DOOR STOP KIT ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THIS KIT IS FOR A DIFFERENT TYPE OF HINGE, ONE THAT HAS STIFFENER PLATE AND OTHER PARTS. MY FRIEND'S FRIG BOTTOM HINGE HAS ONLY ONE PIECE OF METAL ATTACHED TO THE CABINET, WITH DOOR CAM ON IT, AND ONE METAL PIECE ATTACHED TO THE DOOR WITH DOOR CAM ON IT. THE TWO CAMS HAVE GROOVES IN THEM THAT ASSIST IN CLOSING THE DOOR, BUT THEY DON'T STOP IT FROM SWINGING. MY FRIEND SAYS THE DOOR DIDN'T USE TO SWING OPEN ALL THE WAY, BUT HE NEVER FOUND ANY BROKEN PIECES ON THE FLOOR OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO MAKE THIS DOOR STOP PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.

Best way to take care of that problem is tilt ,,,, the frig needs to have a little tilt to the back so when door is open and you turn it loose it will close by it self ,,,,, if you open the door and it swings open it is tilted to much to the front so raise front legs with door slitey open till door close on its own / larry

Sub zero refrigerators 632 door won't stay closed


Thee is a plastic cam at the bottom hinge of the door. Mine cracked and I bought a new one online for like $30 (for a piece of plastic). Got a strong friend to lift the door off the hinges while I replaced it. make sure you get the right one for left or right doors.

Sub Zero - 700 TCI 2 :Water is forming on bottom of Frig.


Most refrigerator doors are adjustable. You may find that adjusting the door so that there is a proper seal eliminates the water collection problem

The freezer door pops open when the refrigerator door is closed.


You're going to need to adjust the hinges on your frig and/or freezer doors.
Your cost: $zero.
There's one hinge at the top of each door & one at the bottom. The hinges at the top are
covered by a triangular shaped piece of plastic that pries up easily with a screwdriver or tack
puller - remember to put down a thin piece of cardboard (as from a cereal box) to protect the
finish on the appliance.
These screws take a 5/16ths inch socket.
Check the screws holding the top hinges first, since they're easier to get to. If the hinges on
either door are loose, you've found the problem - align the doors so the frig door doesn't also
pop open the freezer door and you're done.
If the hinges at the top of the doors are secure, then your problem is with one (or both) of the
hinges at the bottom - probably best to adjust them after emptying the door(s).
These hinges also take a 5/16-in tool, but it'll have to be a combination wrench with a flashlight,
and you'll have to lay down on the floor to adjust these hinges.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.
Regards, Tony

i coud not see the model # of your sub zero . some models like th 550 / 650 use 2 compresors . freezer system maybe ok when fresh food is not . . first thing to do is ck the cond coil up on top and clean it and mk cure the fan is cooling the coil . you moy have a cold control failure . and the fresh food comp may be low on gas . these are the most common cause for your problem .. mm feed back pls ..

Bottom freezer door opens when top door is open and then closed


the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level

Installing cams to sub zero 550


http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=Zip%20Code is the locator area parts distributors. Once you get the parts in, remove everything from the door, food, shelves.... Then with the door closed remove the upper hinge. If you have a left hinge unit you can bend the shroud out of the way and bend it back when you are done. The door can be quite heavy if you have wood panels on it so you may need help. Open the door 90 degrees and lift up and over the bottom hinge. Remove the cam from the door using a phillips head screw. Then replace the hinge cam that is on the hinge that is still attached to the body. Now you will need help, lift the door up and have some one set it into the lower hinge pin. Close the door and have some one hold it closed while you climb up and reinstall the hinge. You may have to adjust the door by sliding it forward and back left and right until you get your sight line just right.

Sub-zero 500 series refrigerator door wont stay closed


If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door... If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.
