    Good Evening SolutionGuy,
    Thanks for the prompt manner in which you responded! I did remove the cover to find two "screws" that look foreign to me in that that are not for the traditional screwdrivers. However, the devices are 'very' tight as I tried to loosen them with pliers. Perhaps I need to have a service call although the seal on the door seems to be tight.
    Thanks, Carol carollienhart.hill@gmail.com

Hi Carol,

Interestingly enough, I answered a similar question just the other day. Maybe there's an outbreak of lazy factory technicians who "forget" to tighten the hinge brackets? Hmmmm. Makes on wonder...

Anyway, it's easy... The door alignment adjustment is done at the top hinge. Pull up a step-stool, then remove the hinge cover. Under there you'll see three screws, I think they're 5/16". Loosen these (since your door has dropped, they're probably already loose), then lift up on the door handle to align it with the other door... while keeping the door aligned, tighten the hinge screws (and put alot of torque on 'em to keep 'em from loosening in the future). Now just replace the hinge cover and your done!

SG

(pssst!... don't forget to rate me, will ya? C'mon, throw me some love.)

Freezer door does'nt shut all the way


If you notice one side of your Maytag side-by-side refrigerator is significantly higher than the other, you might want to raise or lower one of the doors. The refrigerator door is configured at the factory to be slightly higher than the freezer door. The weight of items on the door shelves sometimes cause the doors to sag slightly inward. Making a small adjustment to the freezer door leveling screws will correct minor amounts of sagging.

Position the refrigerator in the place you plan to keep it, and make sure the refrigerator is level front to back and side to side with a spirit level.

  • 2 Remove the base grille, located below the doors, by pulling from the sides. The leveling screws will be visible when the grille is removed.

    Tip

    How to Reverse Your Refrigerator Door (Most units)


    1. Remove the toe grille.
    2. Remove top hinge cover if available. Trace around the hinge with a soft lead pencil. This makes the re-installation easier. Remove top hinge and lift door off the center hinge pin, and set the door aside.
    3. Unscrew the center hinge pin using an adjustable wrench and save for reassembly. Ensure that the plastic washer stays on hinge pin.
    4. Lift the refrigerator door off of the bottom hinge and set aside.
    5. Remove center hinge and shim by removing inside screw and loosening two outside screws enough to allow hinge and shim to slide out. Tighten screws.
    6. Loosen two outside screws on opposite side of refrigerator, remove inside screw and install center hinge.
    7. Remove two screws on bottom hinge with 3/8" socket wrench.
    8. Install bottom hinge on opposite side with the two screws removed from Step 7.
    9. Unscrew the bottom hinge pin using adjustable wrench. Move hinge pin to other hold in hinge and tighten with adjustable wrench.
    10. Reverse door handles.
    11. Move freezer and refrigerator door stops to opposite side. Before starting screws, use an awl to puncture the foam.
    12. Position refrigerator door onto bottom hinge pin and screw center hinge pin through center hinge into the top of the door. Close refrigerator door to help align hinge hole.
    13. Tighten center hinge pin with adjustable wrench.
    14. Remove cabinet and hinge hold plugs and move to opposite side.
    15. Lower freezer door onto center hinge pin (if you have a separate freezer door).
    16. Close freezer door. Have an assistant lift up on opposite side of the door while tightening screws to install top hinge.
    17. Flip top grille and reinstall.
    18. Plug in electrical power cord and turn refrigerator temperature control to center position. Adjust setting as needed.

    Freezer door opens when fridge door is closed


    that is common, your pushing air back into the other side and that pops the door. First adjust the ref so that the back sits lower than the front. It will have 2 5/16th nuts on the front behind the kickplate. going left will lower the back of the unit. After that get out some vasoline and lube up the flat sides of the door seal, this will help keep the seal moist and it wont pop open as easy

    Our side by side freezer door opens slightly


    That is a common occurrance for side by side refrigerators. Closing the fresh food door is like having your car windows closed and closing the door. You can feel the air pressure on your ears. In the refrigerator, the air passes through the duct and into the freezer pushing the door open. The magnet on the door gasket should keep it closed. But it may be the freezer door needs the hinges adjusted to the door seats better when closed. Take the plastic cover off the top hinge and you can loosen the screws (don't take them out) and adjust the door slightly (so it looks even between both doors) and tighten the screws up. The top of the door should be level with the top of the unit, and the gap between the doors even the whole way down.

    How do you adjust the doors to closed completely?


    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. You probably need two.

    Fridge door is lower then freezer door


    The #1 cause for this problem: The floor beneath the fridge is uneven, causing the refrigerator "box" to be out of square. Adjust the levelers on the fridge bottom to compensate for the uneven floor. That should do it.

    Leveling old refrigerator


    The refrig does not have to be level, as a matter of fact, they tend to work (doors on most refrig's) if the front is a bit higher than the back. If you pop off the lower grill, you will see that the front rollers have a bolt that runs up through the lower frame. Turning on the end of that bolt with a 3/8 inch wrench will allow adjustment of an inch or so, up or down, depending on where it is at now. Only the front rollers are adjustable this way. Back rollers would have to be shimmed to adjust. Check the door hinges to see if the hinge and corresponding hinge cam riser (WR2X4901) are worn. (these parts raise the door slightly as it is opened, and help close the door as the door drops back down when closing.)
