    Have you tried removing all of the food from the front of every shelf and door bins? Even remove the door bins from the door? I would bet that the inside of the door or something in the door is hitting something on one of the shelfs... Hope that helps, Brian

Make sure the gasket on the door is clean. This gasket has a magnet inside that must make good contact with the metal area on the Ref.

Also, sometimes this gasket will lose its shape. A little heat from a hair dryer while working it back into shape with your hand will help.

Rust appearing on 10 month old refridgerator doors


How can I put this nicely.
TAKE IT BACK!!!!!! First moisture is forming where it shouldn't, air leak/door gasket not sealing, and second stainless doesn't rust. If rust is forming than it's of poor quality. More iron in it than steel. Isn't there atleast a one year warranty? Don't wait! Till it's too late. Complain NOW!!!

Can't open the driver door from the outside, only the inside. Problem started very intermittently about a year ago...mostly when the weather was below freezing. Now it's an every day thing....what to do?


You will need to take the door apart, some times it's just a spring poped out of place, sometimes a little plastic piece broke, no telling till you get it apart!

I have a top freezer. Whenever the refrigerator door is closed, the freezer door pops open. There appears to be a good seal around each door... How do I keep the freezer door from poping open, when...


Replace the seals. It may appear to be in good shape but what is happening is the compressed air from closing the refer door is going up and releasing the seal on the freezer I would replace the freezer seal first as that should solve your problem.

Door hard to close have starts to close stops and starts to open again have to keep stopping and reversing door mult times to get closed


There should be two small white adjustment knobs on the side of the unit that you turn with a small flathead screwdriver. These are the load / limit adjusters.

What it happening is it think there is something stuck under the door (like a car hood, etc)

These adjustments are VERY sensitive, so be patient while adjusting them.
