Hard shutting door - will come open easy

Feels like something is in the way ? looked carefully and the door is clear of anything- not on the freezer side-it is fine?

    We removed the door / found that something "inside the door"

    had broken- a spring hidden - no way to get inside to fix it or to repair it. the shaft going into the spring inside the door has two blade type things that held onto the door closer-I went to my bench grinder and removed those "blades" making the shaft round so that it would not hold onto the broken part deep inside-then I put a little faucet grease on - it works fine now, it will not have that litte "pull"

    to help close the door - we are used to remembering to make sure it is closed. Saved me $ at least for now-maybe if the economy gets better we can get it replaced-good luck to everyone.

Check on the hinge side of the door, often the gasket does not fit properly if the door is not correctly aligned and the gasket ends up bending and preventing the door from closing.

Freezer cools fine but will not shut off till I open door


Running all the time means you either have to clear/clean your condenser... Check for good tight door seals... and make sure the doors/vents are not blocked by any contents...

Free flowing cold dry air inside... sealed compartments is ideal.

Dollar Pull test:
Use the dollar bill pull test all round your doors...
(brown paper sack is cleaner & nicer):

You can take the paper...
close the door on it..
Pulling it out you should feel mild but constant pressure around the full perimeter of each door (or drawer).

If you do NOT feel it the door/drawer needs to be checked for gasket integrity... and the door may need to be adjusted.

New door gaskets are not terribly expensive
(but most issues are caused by spilled food, cleaning
or door adjustments = easy).

(FULLY covered in every owners manual I've read).

Consider purchasing 2 TAYLOR BRAND refrigerator
thermometer & turning the freezer to the ZERO Fahrenheit
area and the refrigerator to 33 or 34 degrees above zero
(32 degrees Fahrenheit... being frozen eggs & milk (too cold)).

Else... comment me back...

We can take this all the way into refrigerant level check if you find NOTHING ELSE WRONG

((HIGHLY IMPROBABLE... but do-able)).

You gasket is showing as no longer
available... at appliancepartspros.com...

So be gentle!!!

When i close the freezer or refrigerator doors the refrigerator makes a strange noise. like something is working hard to create a vacuum in order to shut tight???


could be just vacuum caused by temp diference if you shut hear noise then try to open quickly but is stuck shut try pushing seal so it breaks from surface. if door opens easy then this is normal on some makes. also be aware if frot free when you close door fan comes on. May be getting noisy bearings.

Freezer door won't stay shut


I have the exact same problem - very annoying. The only thing I found to work was to purchase one of those child safety locks. I bought the Kidco Appliance Fridge Lock S330 because it was the only one I could find that automatically relocks after you shut the door. Buy two (or more) at a time because the arm will eventually wear out and break (after several months depending on how often you use it). You can check out the product's details on eBay - that's where I purchased mine. Hope that helps.

trying to open door?? does it feel as if top wants to open ad bottom of door is being stuck shut? or mabye a package of frozen food has shifted of a shelf and is holding the door shut, if so brute force will solve that one.if it feels like held at bottom sounds as if youmight have a clogged defrost drain tube.drain water backing up onto freezer plor and holding door shut. even then forcing door open is only way then removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over.

Freezer door won't open


There is no lock. More than likely the Door is off track and needs to be reset or ice has set up in the track ceaseing the rails up. In any case this isn't easy you need to get your bottommount freezer door pulled open you may have to use some force and be very careful not to brake it there is alot of plastic. Once you get the door completely out of freezer unclip the rails from the plastice rails and reset the two gears (evenly) to make door shut right. Push metal rails all the way back to you hear a click. Then reverse steps to install freezer door.

Freezer doesn't freeze


it could be that something in the defrost system is faulty. in the compressor area find your defrost timer, using a flat tip screwdriver advance the timer until you hear aloud audible click and the freezer shuts off. now wait a minute or two and feel for heat at the heater (careful it gets red hot) if the heater is on the timer is bad, if no heat you will need to check for continuity on the def thermostat and defrost heater to determine which is bad (most likely it will be the thermostat.)

i found this parts breakdown http://www.stokes-aus.com.au/StokesAP/Manufacturer_Info/FP/FRIDGES/517704%20Series%20R%20VERTICAL%20FREEZER%20N388.pdf

that should help.

the def thermostat is item #11 on the evaporator and components page 9 and 10

good luck

The most common problem is the evaporator fan motor which is located behind the back panel of the freezer and it moves cold air up to the fridge.  You will be able to hear it when you open the freezer door.  May have to hold the light switch in the freezer shut for it to come on.  If the fan is running feel for air flow out of the vent in the top middle of the fridge section.  If you don't feel air and the fan is running then the damper motor behind that vent is bad.  All of this is assuming that there is no frost buildup on the back panel of the freezer.  If there is frost buildup then it is a defrost problem.  Let me know what you find.
