Fridge Door not shutting/sticking

Hello, The fridge door on our Zanussi Fridge/freezer has just stopped sticking altogether. I have cleaned the seal, and taken all the food out of the door and it still does not stick any longer - can you suggest a reason for this? The door is not damaged in any way and still sticks right etc. Thank-you for any suggestions.

Re: Fridge Door not shutting/sticking

The fridge door stays shut only by strip magnets inside the door seal. cause is possibly that the hinges are out of line or the cabinet distorted. try levelling the fridge and tilt slightly backwards

Re: Fridge Door not shutting/sticking

Fridges should be placed level, not tilted. You can hold a small, light piece of iron against the seal to see if it stays put (meaning the seal is still magnetic). If not, it has become demagnetized. The vibrations of slamming the refrigerator door may induce the magnetic dipoles to randomize and thus lose magnetization. Heating or an electric current may also be the cause.

GE Profile Arctica PSS26MG freezer thawed fridge not cold sounds like running rubber on fridge door hot as where it closes between freezer & fridge

The door frame has a heater in it to stop condensation and the freezer door sticking shut with ice.

As both freezer and fridge have failed, you need to call a refrigeration engineer, as it either needs more refrigerant gas or a new thermostat, or (hopefully not), a new compressor.

My Neff fridge (K4316X1/GB) door does not close tightly on it's own and so does not seal properly unless I press it home

Try the following:
  1. Make sure there is nothing sticking out the fridge what could keep the door from shutting;
  2. Take a good look at the hinges and perhaps clean them or lubricate them (using Teflon spray);
  3. There is a white rubber strip all around containing the magnet with which the door should seal itself. Clean this rubber strip and the surface of the fridge it lands on;
  4. Make sure the fridge is level.

GE refrigerator model #LTC19340ST freezer door not sealing

That is a common problem with over-under units. You can clean or replace the door seal or, tilt the unit back a TINY bit. The door pops open because there is a common airway from the freezer to the fridge. When the fridge door shuts too fast, it pushes a lot of air into the unit. It needs to go somewhere so, it pops the freezer door open. If you shut the freezer hard enough, you will be able to pop the fridge door open.

Fridge is out of gas in fridge compartment. Freezer compartment is in order

if the freezer is operating ok,then the refrige side isnt out of gas,its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige thats not opening to let cold air into fridge from freezer,sometimes they stick shut due to ice from condensation on this door,remove grille cover on damper door and check this,if iced up defrost it with a hair dryer,then change temp selector and make sure door then moves with temp change
