The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

Water leak in front left corner of unit. Rusty leveler near strainer.


Is the leak on the same side as the hinges? If yes I'm guessing someone overstressed the hinge when opening the door too widely or by leaning on the open door and the seal is just barely tight enough now. Crack the door open half an inch and eyeball the door gap from top to bottom on the open side to see if the door is unevenly hinged - you can use a ruler to help measure but you need to keep the door immobile while comparing top and bottom gap widths. Tape a hard wedge in place in the doorframe to help with that. Fix for that? Pressure on the door in the right direction to straighten the hinge mount.

Freezer door not sealing - ice build up


The door is misaligned, a condition that should have been obvious to the GS tech who replaced the door deal.

My new side by side refrigerator doors are to far apart. The gap between the doors is wider towards the top then the bottom. How wide should the gap really be and can I adjust the doors so they are...


If you loosen the bolts that hold the hinges on, there should be a small amount of play that will allow you to square up the doors. The gap between the doors should be just wider than your fingers, so they don't get pinched.

Trying to replace the inside door handle of a 1997 gmc suburban


The door is installed by holding it at a 45 degree angle and lowering the top edge until it meets the window gap. It is snapped down then simply swings into place. Then it is pressed together until the plastic clips sap closed. After that the pieces like door handle, arm rest and speaker and grill cover are installed using screws. This is for both hard plastic and soft door panels. Just reverse this process.
Start by checking the arm rest. There should be several screws that attach it to the steel inner door panel. Depending on the door handle and if equipped, the speaker and cover.
Once your sure all that you have checked for all mounting screws then the next step it to pop the door panel off. The panels are attached using plastic clips that are attached to the panel. These clips will have a male type prong that snaps into a female receptacle on the steel inner door panel. Starting at the bottom place a wedge (like a scraper or wonderbar) between the gap of the panel and inner steel door and pry it apart. The best place to start is at the lower outside corner. Once you have a couple popped apart you can use your hand and pop the rest. Do this at the bottom and work your way across and up because the top lip where the panel and window gap meet are held differently. That section needs to be forced up.
Hope this helps

I have a Frigidaire smooth top oven. Oven door will not close completely and the oven light is on 24/7. Any suggestions?


Check the gap on the side of the door. Most likely the top will be wider than the bottom. There is a bulliten for several models. Call a service/parts dealer. Give them your model and serial number they can check the bulliten and order the correct hinge kit. The hinges and receivers will need to be replaced. Both must be replaced to correct problem. Not a difficult repair. If no one will hepl you, respond back and I can check the bulliten and get you a part number. And can order and ship you a part if necessary.

Oven door will not seal at top.


The same thing with mine. I took apart the door today and found the hinges a little bent. I think it should be ok to bent them the opposite way a little with some mole grips......and then I must remember not to move the stove out for cleaning by the oven door handle again (oops).
Door comes off (unlock hinges and lift up). undo 4 screws on the bottom edge and then two on the inside of the door handle then it comes apart - beware as it's heavy. The hinges themselves come off with two screw each.
