Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Maytag Side by Side Model RSD 2200. Problem with closure of refrigerator door. Unlike the Freezer Door which closes without effort and operates as if "spring loaded" over the last few inches of travel, the refrigerator door must be pushed all the way to the full closed position. Nothing appears to be damaged or interfering with the door. can you help? Greg

 SxS refrigerators have what are called ride-ups. One half of this assembly is riveted to the door hinge the other half is screwed to the bottom of the door. It is usually best to replace both parts at the same time. Both fridge and freezer doors have this type of a ride-up.
Remove power, remove the upper hinge cover. Remove the upper hinge screws ( if the freezer door - disconnect the water line ), lift the door off the lower hinge and lay it down on the floor. The parts can be easily replaced now. See the picture below to see what the parts look like ( freezer hinge shown in the picture )....

hi. First of all, finding the model number can be a bit of a challenge. here are the places to look:
  • Inside the refrigerator or freezer, on the upper left or right side wall
  • Behind the lower crisper drawer

  • On the face frame of the refrigerator body

    Right side door does not close unless you push it closed with your hand


    The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

    Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
    Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on.

    Bottom freezer door opens when top door is open and then closed


    the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level
