Question about Frigidaire Door Bin 240356401
I have a frigidairewith the freezer located at the top. My refrigerator door is sagging. So the seal is not sealing. It is only sagging on the left side (the opening side). The right side, or the hinge side is fine. So when you look at the frig, the door sags downward towards the left. The bottom hinge washers look fine. Is it possible that the bottom hinge (L-bracket) is slightly bent?

EASY get a machine screw, nut with washer. I believe I used a 1/8" machine screw.....(find something small to fit in the hole on the bottom hinge.
First step, take 3 screws off bottom to expose hinge area. Have someone hold it or support it so wires to the light do not pull out,.
Pop the machine screw through the front and then with your fingers get the washer an nut and tighten down.
If you want the professsional look. Paint the machine screw white first with a enamel white paint.

Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.
