Door not closing properly

The door on our side by side suprra refridgerator has stopped closing easily. It often stys ajar unless I intentionally push it close. This refridgerator is 2 years old and this problem has just started happening and is slowly getting worse. We have checked all around the door for obsticales as well as dirt around the hinges, but have not been able to solve the problem.

Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff

How can i stop the door ajar alarm when door closed and 0 f


Hey friend, thank you for your post!

In order to stop the door ajar alarm from beeping when the door is closed you would need to reset the alarm. If you have done that and it continues to beep it could be an issue within the switch or panel of your Frigidaire freezer. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

Need gaskets for CSX20E Hotpoint side by side


Seals don't lose their magnetism. Check the door closes all the way round and adjust the hinges if it doesn't sit straight. Check there isn't a relief valve frozen up or blocked (it allows air to escape when the doors are closed). Check the drawers are fully pushed back in and not stopping the door closing properly

Door closed but door ajar comes on


There is a switch or sensor on the door frame either on the hinch side or on the latch side. Try to activate it with the the car on. With the door open, the door open light should light on, if it is a mechanical switch, push it in, if a sensor, touch it with a steel object, the light should turn off. This means the door switch is working ok. Now try the same again but this time push the switch slowly until the door ajar warning light turns on. This means that the switch works ok. Now, close the door from outside and check that there is no gap betwwen the body and the door line all over the perimeter of it. If there is a gap mainly at the latch side or at the hinch side, it can be your problem. If so, let me know so I can show you how to adjust the door to eliminate the gap.
If there is no gaps, your door switch is to low (too far in), let me know so I can show you how to adjust it.

look closly at bottom of door there is a metal door stop, screwed to bottom of door, that prevents door from opein too far. Well when the door is forced open too far the door stopbends sdn then actually prevents door from closing all the way, you see it hitting the hinge(if indeed this is your issue), to repair it either simply bend it back staight witha pair of pliers, or what i sometimes do is switch the refrig and freezer door stops.They are identical, but only require the use of one side, (1 stop will do either door just depends on position as to how it operates)

Freezer door pops open.


normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy

Sub-zero 550 reefridgerator top freezer bottom - refridgerator door not staying closed


Just a guess, but I would check the gasket on the door. They can go bad or get distorted and bunch up and cause the door to bind and not close properly. Also check that the fridge is leveled properly. Will the door close if pushed? Will it stay closed?
