How to stop a squeek

For fixing A squeek on your fridge door/kitchen doors/stove door/microwave/or even car try this and save money.We all have cooking spray and if you don,t buy some before the hardware store sells you something that will cost A fortune.Just spray A small amount on t5he squeek and open and close it 4/5 times. If it is hard to get at use A small paint brush.This can also be used on all most anything even your car but only in the summer because it will freeze.Now the squeek is gone and you can use the rest for cooking no waist.Thank you and good luck....

Squeeks!!! When the door opens or closes it squeeks very loud. WD 40 and other similar products have nott helped.

WD 40 is a water displacement formula not a lubricating product.

Try a oil hand pump with some light engine oil on the henge directly.

After a few days this should help.

Hope this tip helps.

Sounds like drum squeeking, have to open and close front door to get even one page to print


There is also the fuser unit that need regulare servicing because the majority of the squeeking comes from the fuser unit because of the generated heat.

Good luck

Refrig door squeeks when opening & closing

is the refrigerator a top & bottom, or side by side. Never the less, you need to apply some white lithium grease to the contact points of the hinge. where thr hinge meets the door get a q-tip, and apply the grease

Door noise


Common issue with this dishwasher. Easy fix though!! KitchenAid uses a nylon string that connects the hinges to the springs located along the bottom edges of the dishwasher. I had to pull mine out to perform this service. The nylon string seems to dry out and vibrates as the door opens and closes. All that needs to be done is put some Vaseline or other appropriate lubrication all over the nylon string. Especially where it passes through the roller and stationary guide. That will take care of any squeeking or grinding when opening or closing the door. Be careful as your door will now open just like it did when it was new. Now if I can only figure out how to keep my door from popping open during wash cycles!!!
