Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

1 Answer

I need the spring loaded door close mechanism for my Kitchenaid freezer on bottom model: KBFS20EVMS8. Actually, I just need the small white cam/latch that is driven by the spring. From what I can tell, I need to purchase the entire door rail assembly.

SOURCE: Loose freezer door handle

Maytag uses two types of door handle mounts. first look at the bottom side of door handle to see if there are tiny set screws. If there is you might just have to tighten them with an allen wrench. If it doesn't you need to grasp the handle firmly and pull it towards your left, sometimes they can be a little stubburn and require a light wrap with a rubber mallet. This will remove the handle. In this case there will be a clip inside the handle end, check to see if it is bent or if the handle itself is cracked, although I have seen some where the handle mount has become loose and that can be tighted by turning clockwise.

SOURCE: freezer working fine but fridge isn't

Either the damper that the air flows up through is closed or the return air flow vents are blocked with clear ice.

Do you feel the air come out all the way at the top of the duct assembly when the freezer door is opened (but it then stops when the door is closed)?

If so, then it sounds like your return air flow vents are clogged. These are located to the left and right of the duct assembly in the rear/bottom of the refrigerator section. Sometimes you may have to slowly pour hot water into these vents to get the clear ice to thaw. The water should go down into the freezer section behind the evaporator and then out the drain in the back.

If you do not get the air to flow out the top of the duct assembly then the damper is staying shut. This could be either a bad damper in the duct assembly or the main board my not be sending voltage to the damper. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed

This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

How do I get it to close and latch again?


Look at the bottom latch The inside catch is a white nylon cam in a slot at the bottom.If it is there and working you can push it and feel a spring action. It's possible a drop of mineral oil or vegetable oil will revive it if it's still there.( It's not wise to use petroleum based oil on non metalac parts)

Why do no panel lights turn on when my Kenmore Model 587.1625 is latched and ready


The door latch in Kenmore and Kitchenaid isn't of the best design.The spring steel latching tab is needs to push down the black plastic slide mechanism when the door in closed. That slide pushes down on a micro switch which interrupts the cycle when you open the door when the dish washer is running. Take the latch assembly back out. You can insert two compression springs inside the slide on each side of the latch. They are approx 3/16 Dia x 3/4 to 1 inch long. In the hardware dept at Home Depot or Lowe's..The springs will push the slide down hard enough to activate the switch. Right now your dish washer thinks the door is open.

It won't close, so it won't start, the latch doesn't click shut.


Seems to be a mechanical fault as only if the door closes the safety switch will latch on which will initiate the program to move forward.
What is require is to push the release many times , use a de-greasing spray into the door latch mechanism. if this wont work you might need to reassemble the door latch mechanism.- if mechanically minded.

We broke the door handle on our Malber 1000 Can we order a new one and can we fix it ourselves?


Mike, in Washington D.C., again. Of course you can do it yourself. First call Joel (Malber in NY) at 800-600-8913 or 516-294-6660 . Tell him which model machine you need a door latch for (if you aren't sure, check label in rear). Once you've received your new latch assy (about $20): Open door, and notice white plastic "ring" around glass is actually 2 pieces (front and rear) snapped together - with a seam around periphery. Unsnap (separate) them by either getting your fingernails into the seam and pulling them apart - or prying them open with a spackle knife or thin screwdriver blade. Once it starts coming apart, just work the opening all the way around. Remove front "ring" and set aside. Using a 1.5mm Torx screwdriver, remove 2 small screws holding broken latch assy. Note the way the ends of the spring go under the 2 screws. That's the way it has to go back. Slip new latch assy into place, pressing vertical "hinge pin" and ends of spring into slots (near screw holes). Replace 2 screws. Test latch with door open - is it working? Try closing door. All good? Replace front "ring": Open door and, while pulling out on latch handle, slip the ring over the latch handle and get it into approximate position. Let go of latch (it snaps into "closed" position) and adjust ring so it doesn't bind the latch handle (meaning it's free to move). Now, beginning anywhere on outside edge, begin snapping rings together - and continue all the way around. Test that door latch still operates smoothly and that door latches shut properly. FYI: There is no adjustment for this latch assy - it just fits precisely where it's supposed to. Good luck and God Bless ...

I need to replace the detergent dispenser latch on


To replace the parts you have to buy a whole dispenser assemble for $100 to $200. To buy some time ... Get a heavy gage sewing needle - hold it with pliers and heat it red hot. Stick the hot end into the plastic door at the area where the plastic latch is (where it will line up with the far end of the latch mechanism). when it cools cut off most of the needle leaving one eight to one sixteenth (more or less) protruding. Use a drill and small bit to remove some plastic (or drill a small hole) on the spring latch mechanism. push the remaining part of the needle in or out to engage the hole in the latch.. this will hold awhile.

Our French Door model after almost 2 yrs pops open the one door after closing the other, and it doesn't set off the door alarm because it doesn't pop it open far enough to trigger the alarm. This causes...


We solved this problem by replacing the plastic parts on the top & bottom of the door that 'latch' the door closed.

On the top of each door is a white plastic 'cam' that latches into a receiver at the center point of the refrigerator chamber. One of mine was broken.
Additionally, on the bottom edge of each door is a white plastic hook-shaped 'stopper' that provides spring tension. I replaced both of those and now all is happy.

The door on my dishwasher will not close


There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

NEFF H5470NOGB Microwave door latch fault


theres a small plastic hook inside the door which holds a tension spring this will have snapped off stopping the latch from entering the lock its actually quite easy to fix the inner plastic frame can be unclipped with a small flat blade screwdriver exposing the hook mechanism and the spring will be lying in the bottom of the door frame you can reconnect it to the metal inner frame it stretches the spring a little more but it will never snap again ive done this loads of times with no probs otherwise you will have to replace the outer door to reinstate the broken hook.
