My husband was putting refrigerator lock on the freezer door and when he went to put the screw in a bunch of air starting escaping.The door opens on the right side. Its a magic chef refrigerator with the freezer on top. The fan seems to still be working but we have no idea what it was escaping from the side of the freezer or if it can be fixed. I hope you can help us and any information you can offer would be greatly appreciated. We have 2 Autistic children and we have to keep the freezer and refrigerator locked. Thanks for your time and help if you can.

With the door closed. Remove the cover over the bottom door hinge by removing the two screws holding it in place. This also allows the door closing mechanism to be removed. Rotate the door closer away from the refrigerator and slide straight down. Now open the freezer door. Take a pencil and mark around the hinge on top of the freezer door so you will know where to put the hinge back in place later. Remove the three large hinge screws and two small shipping screws. This will release the door on the top. Rotate the door away to get free from the hinge and pull the entire door straight up.
IS THE FANS WORKING? DEFROST IT GOOD WITH A FAN BLOWING IN THE FREEZER SIDE FOR A HOUR, IF YOU SEE A BUNCH OF WATER ON FREEZER SIDE BOTTOM , YOU KNOW IT WAS THE PROB. LISTEN CLOSE FOR FAN WHEN YOU OPEN FRIDGE SIDE DOOR.. #2 DEFROST TIMER
Put 2 lock washers under the remaining 2 screws and dont over tighten.
This should hold the door fine just do not over load the door.
Go to the hardware store and get 2 new hardened screws if you think you damaged the remaining 2 screws.
If they dont have any that will fit try an auto parts store.
The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.
you do have a switch at the top door hinge . make the phillip screw are tight at the top of the door . if they are loose the door will not align in order make contact with that switch. or you may have a faulty light switch
Hi , let the freezer incline put pieces of thick cartoon on front legs of the freezer so that the door will shut , the door contact magnet are weak. check also the screw and bolts of the door might lose.
