The doors Hinges or Striker need to be adjusted to make up for the weatherstrip thickness. To do this, loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
BEFORE YOU START:
Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
To move the door safely, use a padded pry bar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.
TO ADJUST ON A:
F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator
HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ADJUSTMENT
Loosen the front door hinge to front door bolts.
Adjust the front door alignment.
Tighten the front door hinge to front door bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm).
FRONT DOOR FORE AND AFT ADJUSTMENT
Check the rear door hinge adjustment before adjusting the front door hinge.
Remove the front fender.
Loosen the front door hinge to body bolts.
Adjust the front door alignment to specification.
Tighten the front door hinge to body bolts.
Install the front fender.

The following procedure is for performing fore, aft, up, down and tilt adjustments.
Remove the door striker.
Loosen the bolts only enough to allow for slight door movement.
Carefully close and adjust the door until flush with the adjacent body panels.
Carefully open the door and tighten the bolts.
Re-install and adjust the door striker.
Check the door for proper operation and alignment.
Mark the position of the striker before loosening.
Loosen the striker retaining bolts.
Adjust the door striker and tighten the striker retaining bolts.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.
have you ajusted the door catch pin to the corect position and does the door line up you might have to ajust the hinges to level the door properly
check the door lines make sure it hits the pin in the right spot if not grab the pin and loosen it with a pair of vise grips and ajust up down or in and out if required
if it is the hinges loosen the botom and top and slide th hinges eithor way remember to ajust 1 hinge at a time onlt loosen 1 hinge at a time if door needs to go up loosen the botom hinge slightly and pull up on back of door when it's almost closed then open door and tighten botom hinge
if too high try loosening it then push down on the back of door
open the door loosen the striker on the door jam and adjust it by slidding it back and forth, also if the door has drooped a little loosen the lower hinge and put a 3/8 shim between the hinge and door!!!
Look at the door hinges;you should see some flat washers on the bottom of hinge.(maybe on top also).They are made with hard plastic or fiber,and are different thickness.You could probably use metal washers that you may have laying around.Loosen bottom hinge and pick up on bottom of door and hinge,and retighten hinge,someetimes this will solve problem.Other wise,may have to remove top hinge and lift door off and add washers till the door closes properly.When refrigerators are properly leveled,when you let go of the door,it should have a tenedency to close.Hope this helps Gregg
Easy... The door alignment adjustment is done at the top hinge. Pull up a step-stool, then remove the hinge cover. Under there you'll see three screws, I think they're 5/16". Loosen these (since your door has dropped, they're probably already loose), then lift up on the door handle to align it with the other door... while keeping the door aligned, tighten the hinge screws (and put alot of torque on 'em to keep 'em from loosening in the future). Now just replace the hinge cover and your done!
OK LOOSEN THE HINGE THAT SUPPORTS THE FREEZER DOOR.IT'S ON TOP AND HAS 3 SCREWS .JUST LOOSEN AND NOT REMOVE THEM.NOW LIFT UP THE DOOR UNTIL IT LINES UP EVEN WITH THE OTHER DOOR.AT THE SAME TIME TIGHTEN ALL 3 SCREWS. YOUR DONE!!! PLEASE RATE THIS. THANX!!
