How do I raise the level of my refrigerator door to be even with freezer door?


Thank you for your inquiry, Leland Dodd!

I see that you are having difficulty in raising the level on your Frigidaire refrigerator, FGHC2331PF. I have reviewed your manual and there are two types of adjustment for either front rollers or lower hinge. If you are having issues with adjusting the doors or leveling your refrigerator I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly level your refrigerator. Best of luck! -Matt

How can I adjust an upright freezer door ?


Hello there,
It is always the feet and their adjustment and floor must be level
From the user guide it says

;The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on
a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded freezer.
NOTE:It is VERY MPORTANT for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
To level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, half a bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. ;

Leveling a refridgerator


if not level you need to tip it back and unscrew or screw in the feet on it. use a 2ft level on top to be sure which way to go. if just the door, open door and there is a bracket in between the freezer and fridge and it should be adjustable a little bit. unscrew til lose adjust door to right spot and hold while tightening bolts. that should work. if the fridge door is on top and freezer is on bottom then adjust bracket screws on top of fridge.

How do i adjust the doors so they dont touch each other when the doors are closed.i.e. sideways adjust ment,not up and down,i can see how that is done


It is a leveling problem, not a side to side adjustment normally. If you have a titt - left to right or right to left - then the door are thrown out of alignment.

So if you put a level at the top and adjust the up and down until it is level side to side.

Refrigoator door does not vacuum seal tight like it used to when new. Door barely stays closed on gasket.


What I hears sounds as if the refrigerator needs re-leveling. Here are some basic things to do as in this video. Every refrigerator is not always the same but the idea is to cause the doors to shut inward if you should be standing in the front and let both doors loose from your hands the doors should shut inward and firmly if not over adjusted in the final steps. Your model is a nice large model! Here is what one user manual mentioned below.

NOTE: Custom or full-overlay door panels must be installed

before leveling.

1. Open the door and place the level on top of the refrigerator

frame as shown. Check to see whether the refrigerator is level

from left to right.

2. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from left to right.

3. Place the level(s) on shelf or shelves. Check to see whether

the refrigerator is level from front to back.

4. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from front to back.

5. Be sure that all four leveling legs contact the floor and

support the full weight of the refrigerator.

6. Make final check to ensure the refrigerator is level.

Adjust Door Swing

1. Check that the refrigerator door can open freely. If the door

opens too wide or you are installing full-overlay custom

panels using a Trimless Trim Kit, you should adjust the door

swing.

2. Remove the door stop screw from the bottom hinge.

3. Hold the door open to a position that is less than 90°.

4. Replace the door stop screw in the bottom hinge and tighten.

NOTE: If you are using full-overlay custom panels with the

Trimless Trim Kit, the door stop should be replaced in either

the 90° or 110° position. See "Handle and Door Clearances

for Custom Panel Series."

Install Side Panel

If the built-in area depth is 25" (63.5 cm) or more, the side panels

can be installed inside the side trim or attached to the outside of

the side trim.

IMPORTANT: Thermador is not responsible for the removal or

addition of molding or decorative panels that would not allow

access to the refrigerator for service.

1. For the inside side trim piece, slide the front edge of the

routed side panel into the trim piece.

2. Nail the rear edge of the panel to the support board.

A. Level to check left to right leveling

B. Level to check front to back leveling

A. Rear leveling bolt

B. Front leveling bolt

A. Door Stop in 130° position

B. 110° position

C. 90° position

Freezer is level but door is not. matching frig. is level and door is level doors then do not match across both doors. is there an adjustment on freezer door that can be done?


Please check the doors hinges/supports. Loosen the bolts of abnormal level door, adjust the level and tighten the bolts. If it is not work put a metal sleeve on support shaft ( It may wear down already)
I think that all you can do to re-level the door.

I have a Miele W404SB WPS washing machine. Water leaks out of the door during the washing cycle. Do you have any suggestions how I can stop this. Regards, Teresa Rooney


1. Make sure the washer is level first, with a small torpedo level at the top center edge of the washer ,check at the front and one side. If its not, adjust the 2 front level foot adjusters (at the front of the unit where they touch the floor) to level the washer.
2. If level is ok, check the door seal and replace if cracked or torn or old and hardened.
3. If ok, look at the latch on the door and the washer. Some have an adjustment for how far the door closes to latch. There will be 2 screws or small bolts you will loosen to slide the lever or the latch plate to adjust so the door closes tighter.
4. If ok, then the water level sensor will have to be replaced by a qualified tech.

Dishwasher leaks water as it fills


  • Step 1 Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
  • Step 2 Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
  • Step 3 Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
  • Step 4 Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
  • Step 5 Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
  • Step 6 Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.
    Fixing a leaking door
  • Step 1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
  • Step 2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
  • Step 3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
  • Step 4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
  • Step 5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
