You might want to check the bottom of the door and see if its dragging and make adjustments if it is. Also there are plastic cams at the door hinge pin area that are supposed to help the door close. They get worn and may need to be replaced. You can lift the door off of the hinge pins and inspect them. hope this helps and good luck.

Can I replace insulation in door only?


Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

Kenmore freezer too warm


Are you referring to the internal temperature of the freezer? If so
have you checked that the door is closing ok and that the door seals are meeting the door frame all round?
It might be that the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. If this is the case a serviceman will need to drain the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.
If you are referring to the outside cabinet temperature then it's probably ok and there is no fault. You would expect the outside panels of a freezer to be around room temperature or warmer as the freezer removes heat from inside the cabinet and expels it outside.

I have a frigidaire stand up freezer model #lffh21f7hw, and the door isn't vacumn sealing the door, why?


If you have too much weight in the door or someone pulled down in the door, it gets twisted. Try lifting up on the bottom outside corner of the door to straighten it up. You might have to loosen the top hinge to reseat it.

My freezer has condensation inside


Hi - From what you have described it sounds like the freezer has a poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit.

Gasket seal is not good


Check the door is aligned properly and meets all the way round If not, grasp the door firmly at the top and push it closed while placing the head of a mallett or similar item between the bottom of the door and the body of the fridge. This will straighten the door and the seal will fit again

Door will not stay shut, nothing is blocking it, no suction sound when it closes


1. Check entire condition of seal, even the bottom section and make sure it is not damaged.
2.Check the seal on the side of the door the hinges are on, they may be catching on the cabinet when closing, if so, use petrolium gel and rub it on the face of the seal, this will allow lubrication of the seal.
3.Also check that the seal has not swelled , if so, you can rectify this by using a hair dryer and starting on the sides the hinges are on, carefully heat the outside of the entire seal on that side, then close the door and hold firmly closed till cool, then move to the other side, top, then bottom doing the same process each time, this usually works a treat.

I hope that has been of some help for you and it works.

Refrigerator inside light will not go out when door closes


This can be due to one of two things, either the door is not hitting the light switch when it closes or the light switch is bad.

Locate the switch, it is usually on the top of the cabinet inside the refrigerator, push the switch, if the light does not go out then the switch is bad, if the light goes out the door needs adjusted so it will hit the switch when it closes. Typically this can be done by loosening the hinges and holding the door in place while someone tightens the hinges back up.
