Question about Refrigerators
The top of the freezer door on my model BB120TPE is rubbing on the hinge bracket enough to create metal shavings. How can I adjust the door alignment to prevent this? Thanks in advance. Don in OH.

I think I can help. Usuly the doors have been swapped around in this case. look closely at the freezer door on hinge side. there should be a small metal piece that covers the hinge to prevent anything from jamming hinge. this shield also serves as a spacer. this is what sets the door at the correct height. if the piece is missing you can have your local appliance dealer order one for you. it only takes a few minutes ts to install. you will need to remove the freezer door to do this. Hope this helps and good luck.

If you need to lift the main door, first remove all product from both doors. Shut off the machine. Too much stress on the compressor running with no doors.
Remove top cabinet bracket for the freezer door and lift freezer door off.
Remove center bracket, and lift main door off. Keep track of all shims and spacers.
You wil need additional spacers between the bottom bracket and the main door.
However, sometimes the door pin opening on the bottom of the main door has deteriorated and cannot be repaired. Check visually as to it's condition.
If it is beyond repair, then one solution is to reverse the doors to make use of the other side of the main door. Parts may be necessary from your local appliance parts house.

Check with your owners manual, that will show you how to re-align the doors. Or, worse case scenario, the internal rail is bent and needs to be replaced. Do a visual check on that.
