Have a look at the door gasket. It may have perished or stretched causing the door to be forced open. especially around the bottom door hinge area. If its stretched, try and pull or slide the gasket back to its proper position. try a very little smear of rubber lube grease down the gasket on the hinge side of the door, it helps the gasket slide past the door frame when you close the door.

The bottom freezer door on my Kenmore refrigerator 795.7900 pops open each time I close the top door. I have tried adjusting the leveling screws and it hasn't helped. Any suggestions?


Glen you keep adjusting but before that try to find this unusual problem. On its own, doesthe freezer door close witha thud? If not it needs adjustment otherwise other problems could surface.

Freezer Door


There is usually some adjustment on the hinges. Your is termed buttbound, the door at the hinges is too close so it makes the door pop open. Take everything out of the inside door shelves if there are any. Slacken the mounting screws a little and pull the door away from the frame, make sure it sites square and tight, and then tighten up the mounting screws. With a freezer, i would also suggest fully defrosting it first.

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.

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.

    Freezer door has a gap in the middle. Seal doesn't


    Put a long straight edge on the door to verify a warp. A 4 foot level is good for this test.
    If the door is in fact warped. You should pull back on the seal,loosen the screws behind the seal holding the door liner in place,adjust the door to the straight edge and re-tighten the screws.
    If the straight edge does not show a warped door,take a hair dryer and heat the seal where it is off the frame. Do this with the door closed and you will see the seal relax and touch the frame. Let it cool in this position before opening the door again.
    If neither of these is the cause,loosen the door hinge and re-adjust the door position,then re-tighten the hinge screws.

    Our GE upright freezer door keeps opening on its own! Our food is starting to melt and the manual only talks about tightening the refrigerator door. What should i do?


    Your refrigerator is leaning forward to far and you need to adjust the front legs so that it is slightly leaning back. This is why the doors are opening as they work by gravity. On the bottom left and right front corners of your refrigerator you should round pads with threaded legs screwed it the bottom of your refrigerator. You need to lean the unit back and adjust these out to raise the front of your refrigerator until the doors when opened will slowly shut on its own. A level comes in handy for leveling also.

    hi Step 1: If the door won't shut tightly, tip the refrigerator slightly backward by propping up the front of the unit or unscrewing the front leveling legs two complete turns. Experiment with this adjustment until the door stays closed, but don't tip the unit very far out of front-to-back level.

    Step 2: If leveling doesn't work, tighten the hinge screws. You may have to open the door (especially the freezer door) to turn these screws. On some units, you may have to remove a hinge cap or trim to reach the screws; pry off the cap or trim with a screwdriver. Sagging and looseness can be corrected by shimming the door hinges. Loosen the hinge and place a hinge-shaped cardboard shim between the hinge and the door. Then tighten the hinge again. Sagging may also be caused by a wrongly placed shim. In this case, you can correct the problem by removing the shim. Experiment with the shims; you may be able to eliminate the sagging.

    Step 3: If the door is warped, tighten the screws that hold the inner door shell to the outer door shell. You may have to change or adjust the door gasket after making this adjustment.

    Step 4: Check the catch. Newer units have a magnetic catch on the door. If the door doesn't latch properly, remove the magnetic strike from the inner door shell and shim it slightly with a piece of thin cardboard. You may have to adjust the gasket to conform with the new shim.
