Question about Frigidaire FRS26KF5C Side by Side Refrigerator

Single door frig with top freezer

Doors don't shut snug.The big door doesn't close tight unless pushed, and I get a small amount of ice on the top of the freezer.
We had a repair person from Lowe's in last year and she leveled the door, but still have a little problem with it. Can I fix it myself, or do I have to get the repairlady in again?

Rather than self-closing, our refrigerator doors each stop about 4 inches short, requiring a strong push to close. Is this normal or problematic? No kidding ~ 41 views and no answer?!


it would seem as if the doors need fixing or that the icebox isnt leaned back enough to self close...but that is just my IMO sadly...

What would make our maytag side by side drip water up top near the freezer side. I just noticed today that the door on frig side doesn't seem to be closing tight. Anything we can do?


not sure what is blocking your door from closing tight. there are adjustment screws on the top of the door hinges under the plastic caps that align the doors.(they are there on my maytag side by side). the water could be from some ice buildup in side the housing at the top of the inside of your fridge where the flap opens up to send cold air from the freezer to the fridge, especially if your door has not been closing properly that will ice up trying to keep the fridge cold. remove everything from your fridge, unplug it and take a blow dryer to that housing to remove any ice buildup on the flap then plug it back in. there are also diagnostic checks you can do using the temperature control buttons to test if the flap is working properly as well. they are in your owners manual.

If your refrigerator is fairly new, the seals probably are OK. More likely, the door alignment has to be adjusted.

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is...


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. When the opposite door is closed air is trapped and forced out the other door pushing it open.
The door seals contain a magnetic strip that hold the door to the fridge, these magnetic strips have lost their strength, to test this use a shhet of paper. Open the door, place the sheet of paper across where the door closes, shut the door, then slide the paper out. If the paper comes out without any resistance then the door seal needs to be replaced.

Model gd25dfxfw00 Gold side by side; air appears to be leaking around the ice maker ejection door creating a build up of ice inside the freezer at the bottom of the icemaker ejection slot.


I had the same problem, same Whirlpool frig.

There's damper/delay arm/plunger, similar to what you see on doors, that slowly closes the ice door to allow all the ice to escape. This is stuck/broken. You can order the parts on line and replace it. I actually just removed it and the door closes nice and snug again, and no more ice build up in the chute. It occasionally traps ice in the chute, as the door shuts real quick now, before the last cube(s) can come out. I'm use to it now and am quick to open the door without sending more ice out of the maker.

The replacement kit should be : AP3595356

My refrigerator Door (Whirlpool Gold)does not close like it shoul


You need to bend the door, if the gap is at the top put your foot between the frig door and the bottom and push the door closed slightly. so you can check it and do a small amount at a time. till tou reach the point that the door closes tight. if the gap is at the bottom put a shoe or something about 4 to 5 inches wide. go for it you can fix this..... saw

Top freezer door does not close tight


Sounds like the top hinge is loose. If the hinge has a cover, remove it then hold the door in the correct position and tighen the hinge screws.

Freezer door won't stay shut


Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
