Refrigerator door sagging

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?

If the door seal is damaged or out of alignment, there is a chance of leakage, which can cause burns, damage to the oven or even a fire hazard.

SOURCE: My frigidaire microwave door is sagging and is about to fall off

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.

SOURCE: frigidaire gallery microwave door sags

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.

I have an Amana ABB2527DES and the bottom freezer door is not closing tight. Any suggestions?


Inspect door seals for shifting, bunching, and tears and adjust or replace them. Inspect shelving in compartment to make sure of proper positioning. Inspect door baskets for item protruding over the top and holding door back. Inspect door for loose hinges allowing doors to sag.

Replaced freezer gaskets now not sealing well


Jay, Check to see if hinge can be adjusted so door closes tighter, may be a faulty door seal, or maybe it needs manipulated to soften, shape, stretch it to seal better. You can try the dollar bill trick between the seal and fridge to locate the problem/leaking spots. The bill should not pull out with out there being a little force, no force means seal is not proper in that area. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does my freezer located on the top of the gallery refrigerator have frost in it?


Check the freezer door gasket! Frost build up along the front edge of the freezer indicates a poor or broken seal. It could also be packaging or plastic bags on top of the freezer getting into the door opening and allowing moist room air into the freezer--make sure nothing on top of the refrigerator is getting into the door or jamming it open.

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.

Refridgerator door sags


Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
Good Luck!

The freezer will not get cold, i replaced the defrost timer and the t-stat inside the freezer, and it keeps icing up, the heating element does work, the unit is only 2 years old


Turning it down a 1/2 to 1 knotch id try, the Whirlpool recommended is 0-5 degrees in freezer, im sure you have already cleaned coils.

So my last recommendation is the door. Ensure is closing and sealing. Sometimes the hinges wear out and the door sags, seals but sags causing humidity to get in and freeze up.

Try slipping a piece of paper between seal and door, if it goes right in its sagging, just make sure you check the whole area this way.
