Yes you can.remove two screws from under one side pull it away slightly and it will come away.you will then have one housing on both sides left in the fridge wall,they will have a little pressure on them from the springs. just prise them away. you will need help to replace them, as you need pressure against the spring to keep the door closed. you can buy springs and housings seperately from camec there is left and right housings.give me a call if you need to ..

On some models you don't have to pry the door in any way. Look up under the closed door on the right side and you will see a small hole there. Put an eighth inch diameter nail through the hole and push until you feel the spring compress into the hinge housing. The door will release from the hinge and come out towards you. Then lift the left side out. You can get the hinge housings on Ebay. That is usually what breaks. Look for upgraded parts.

How energy-efficient is a 1999 Kenmore 59569990 side-by-side refrigerator?


Check that model number again. It should be posted in the refrigerator section or the freezer section.To get the true capacity, open the compartment door and measure the depth, width, and height inside the compartment. Do this for both the fresh food compartment, and for the freezer. Multiply the dimensions together (D x W x H) in feet. The result will be cubic feet for that compartment. The sum of them both will be the total capacity for the unit.

Have a GE Model #GSL22JFPHBS side-by-side refrigerator that the freezer is staying cold but the refrigerator part is not get cold.


its either the defrost heater or defrost thermostat or the defrost timer has gone bad and the evaporator is iced over,HINT: (you will see the inside rear panel in the freezer has frost on it) and the evaporator fan cannot blow cold air over the iced up coils in which case soon the freezer will start to seem warm too,if this isnt the case then its the damper vent door located between the freezer and fridge compartment that opens and closes to throttle cold air into the fridge from the freezer,sometimes they freeze shut from condensation or the door hinge breaks and it can jam shut,also if theres excessive water dripping into the fridge from the top it can be a plugged drain hole and water blocks cold air flow,also make sure the evaporator fan beneath the evaporator coil in the freezer is operating when the units running or cold air wont be pushed into the fridge either

Freezer won't stay shut


If you want a part number for the replacement door gasket please provide a complete model number here so I can give that to you or you can look it up yourself at www.searsdirect.com You must have your model number. (sample 110.XXXXX etc)

The magnet is inside the door seal itself. If the seal is damaged replacement is your only option.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My Dometic trailer refridgerator is warm but freezer is freezing.


Brandi4723,

Unfortunately, you have a bad cooling unit in your refrigerator. Then ammonia smell means that you have a leak in the unit. TURN THE FRIDGE OFF!!! Do not use the fridge on AC or Gas until you have the cooling unit replaced or buy a new fridge. Depending on the model number and serial number of the fridge, it may be under recall by dometic and you might be able to have it repaired for free. If you will provide me with the model number, serial number and the serial number of the cooling unit (found on the outside of the unit in the fridge compartment, lower tank of cooling unit), I can then tell you the pricing of the repairs or whether it is under recall.

Again, TURN THE FRIDGE OFF and do not use it...RISK OF FIRE!!!!

Hope this helps,

Jeff
