    The door is not broken.

    Typically, the refrig doors usually have an adjustment on the bottom legs that force the door to close(relying on the door weight) after it has been opened. I removed the bottom panel and cannot locate such an adjustment.

    Currently, the door swings open and you need to pull the door and force it to close.

Toyota avalon 2000 front drivers side door closes but lock does not lock it to a solid shut....can still pull door open whats happening


Sounds like a badly adjusted door lock. Either the hasp on the door post is too far in, not allowing the lock to cycle to a complete lock position, or the lock is faulty. The hasp can be adjusted, so try that before looking at replacing the lock mechanism.
To check the door lock, open the door and manually turn the lock mechanism until you hear the lock click in place, then using a round object like a longish 8 mm bolt, hook it into the lock mechanism and pull real hard. It should be impossible to turn the mechanism by hand once it is locked.
It is also possible that the hasp (the bent piece of metal mounted on the door post) is too low. This will allow the lock mechanism to slip over it and not close properly.

Can not adjust closing pressure to latch storm door when main door is closed.


Good and Bad
Good, you have a great seal.
Bad, creates pressure not allowing air the escape.
Adjust with main door open and most times screen will close after a long time.

Doors where hard to close without the weather door seals. But with them on they will not close. The body plates more but not enuff on the cab? I need HELP.


Hi!!
The doors Hinges or Striker need to be adjusted to make up for the weatherstrip thickness. To do this, loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
FRONT DOORS 1kbron_78.gif
REAR DOORS
1kbron_79.gif
BEFORE YOU START:
  • Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
  • To move the door safely, use a padded pry bar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  • Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.
TO ADJUST ON A: F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator
HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ADJUSTMENT
  • Loosen the front door hinge to front door bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to front door bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm).

FRONT DOOR FORE AND AFT ADJUSTMENT Check the rear door hinge adjustment before adjusting the front door hinge.
  • Remove the front fender.
  • Loosen the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment to specification.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Install the front fender.

DOOR ADJUSTMENT The following procedure is for performing fore, aft, up, down and tilt adjustments.
  • Remove the door striker.
  • Loosen the bolts only enough to allow for slight door movement.
  • Carefully close and adjust the door until flush with the adjacent body panels.
  • Carefully open the door and tighten the bolts.
  • Re-install and adjust the door striker.
  • Check the door for proper operation and alignment.
STRIKER ADJUSTMENT Mark the position of the striker before loosening.

  • Loosen the striker retaining bolts.
  • Adjust the door striker and tighten the striker retaining bolts.

After opening, my automatic garage door creeps back down a bit


There is a sensitivity switch for both directions, open and close. If you access the garage door opener in the ceiling, you will see two adjustment screws for calibrating these. I would highly recommend following the instructions in your manual, as these are life safety adjustments! Your sensitivity for closing the door is adjusted to the positive. You just need to back it off a little. Place a 2x4 on the floor of the garage where the door comes down. and when the door hits the 2x4, it should automatically come back up. If not, you adjusted it too far. Hope this helps. and remember, check the manual for your specific adjustment procedures.

Won't Close


Remove power from the opener. Then, pull the red release rope and manually lift open the door. It should move with little effort. Next, pull the door halfway down and let go. The door should stay where you left it. If it fails either test, the door lift springs need replacement or adjustment. If it works ok, follow the proceedure in the owners manual for adjusting the up and down limit sensors, and the emergency reverse adjustment.

Air conditioner


On my 90 Aerostar 3L, I had a similar problem, in that the front vent control, or blend door was not setup correctly and had to be adjusted. Somehow the choke type cable for temperature adjust, had slipped out of its holder at the door end, and was not allowing the blend door to close properly, and the outside air was not allowed to bypass the interior heater core, even thought the cooling core was lowering the air temp, but raising it again because it had to go through the heater core. Removing the top of the dash, and looking in from outside the windshield, and having someone operate the temp control will tell you if it's working properly, or needs adjustment. Alternately, if it's the manual control type, by quickly operating the temp control, you should here the blend door "thump" as you open and close it. There should be full travel in the control range, or if limited, the above problem applies, adjust at the blend door mechanism.
