Open Question

Hinged seal not fully retracting

One month old unit. the central hinged seal on the left door is not fully retracting, and if the right door is closed first or not opened at all, when the left door swings closed, the hinged seal smacks into the right door. Unit is level (+/- 1/64th of an inch) with a Bosch laser level, "split the line" horizontally and vertically. And verified with a Stabila spirit level ( aka "the trusty bubble stick") Contacted KitchenAid and they offered to dispatch a Service Tech, but I declined for now. Just wanted to ask here if there was a known issue/solution before I went exploring with my screwdriver.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Door won't stay closed

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Part 12 on this diagram is your cam. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=KSRB27FHSS02&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0593&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=REFRIGERATOR%20DOOR&documentId=O2030395&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Try to re-adjust the appliance so it is level and tips backwards slightly. You'll have gravity on your side to help keep the door closed. You will need help tipping the unit while adjusting the levelers underneath.

Also make sure the appliance is sitting on a solid surface and isn't somehow twisted, which will place stress on the box and possibly cause the issue you describe.

Make sure the unit is not overloaded and that the gasket surfaces are clean. After only 5 years, the magnetic gaskets should not be worn out.

SOURCE: when i close the left door the right door pops

I had the exact same problem with my Kitchen Aid French door refrigerator...... I had my appliance repair man come twice and we finally found the problem........... the LOWER DOOR HINGE was broken on the inside. you can only tell when you go to remove the hinge from the inside of the door. he replaced it and it works beautifully. I read how many people have had this problem and have replaced the gasket on the door but it didn't solve the problem. that's because it's not the gasket it's the lower hinge in the actual door. good luck

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.

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ΒΌ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

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.

Dhow do i remove stoves efa600H oven door hinges?


1. Open the oven door and remove the 2 screws at the side of the inner glass window 11cm above the hinges and lift off the door. Place it somewhere safe!
2. Remove the 4 screws that you can see nearest to the left and right edges of the oven with the door removed. These secure the oven to the kitchen unit.
3. Slide the oven forwards about 20cm out of the unit, being careful not to pull on the cable.
4. Each hinge is held in place by 2 screws at the side of the unit now exposed, about 18cm apart. Remove them and slide out the hinges. Reassembly is the reverse of the above.
5. Note that the hinges have no means of adjustment. If not working properly, renew them.

There is a hole in the hinge, for placing a pin, to hold fully open. Two man job. One forces the hinge into the fully open position; the second inserts the pin (nail) into the hole.

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!
