Check the hinges on the bottom of the doors. they support the entire weight of the door, and after some time the will bend which causes the door to sit lower so that the seal dose not lineup with the mating surface. i just took mine off and hit them with a hammer to bend them bake into shape

How to turn off the doorajar beeping on a Kenmore Freeze and what is causing the moisture buildup inside freezer.


Check that the door gasket is not perished or damaged causing the door not to close properly. Also check nothing is hitting or obstructing the door from pushing the door open switch closed. Some fridges have a lever or button sticking up out of the door which pushes the switch off. Check if you have one and see if its broken or missing the switch. Perhaps the door has dropped and not touching the switch? The moisture in the fridge indicates that air is getting into the compartment during cooling cycle. This is common if the door isn't closing properly or the gasket has failed.

Freezer door doesn't close all the way on one side,


Make sure that there is nothing blocking the drawer on that side. If there is nothing there carefully inspect the drawer closure. There should be a little catch point when closing the drawer that makes it pull closed on it's own. If you are still having an issue you will want to replace the rail/slide assembly.
Good luck!

Food freezes in the refrigator


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up and you need to see if the defrost section is working correctly,then as for the warm refrige side,it sound as if the vent damper door is frozen shut or the cold control in the refrige isn't opening it to let cold air into the refrige from the freezer,if its frozen take a hand held hair dryer and remove the vent grille over it and defrost it and then check to make sure the control opens and closes it as you adjust its control in the refrige

Bubbling sound coming from the bottom of my freezer


There is a vacuum build up in the freezer compartment when you close the door. This can make the door difficult to open. You can overcome this by sticking a small lollipop stick to the bottom part of the door gasket. This will act as a vacuum breaker.

Freezer door rubbing


take the freezer door off and put a washer or two on the bottom hinge. sometimes there are extra plastic washers on the top hinge that you can move to the bottom to lift it up.
also check if the hinge is bent or loose, as this may cause the problem.

Freezer door pops open.


normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy
