Door on Zanussi Fridge Freezer ZTX520w

I have a problem with the fridge door not hanging properly - it droops slightly to the left so I have to lift the handle to raise the door so it will shut properly. Otherwise it catches on the base cover. Do you have a tip on adjusting it?

Re: door on Zanussi Fridge Freezer ZTX520w

What causes this is the cabinet has moved ( twited ) from not being leveled on first install. what we do is pack the hinge up with a washer.

Both the freezer and fridge doors hinge on the right, and the left hand side has sagged a little so neither neither door is sealing properly. How do I adjust the doors to raise the left side of the...

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.

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.

How to remove doors of a whirlpool 6vmw47 top mount fridge/freezer

Hello Hicherringto,

I understand that you would like instructions on how to remove the doors on your fridge. Most common on top mount freezers/fridges you need to start at the top and work your way down.

1. Locate the freezer hinge top part where the door swings.
2. Remove the plastic cover over the henge. (top of the box if covered)
3. Remove the screws holding the henge in place.
4. Lift up on the henge
5. Open the freezer door and lift up (the door should lift off the bottom pin)
6. Open the Fridge door and remove the screws from the hinge that the freezer door sat on
7. Remove the hinge from the fridge door by lifting up
8. Open and lift up on the fridge door
9.Reinstall in reverse

That is the easiest way to remove the doors on a top mount freezer fridge. Note that when you reinstall the doors you will have to adjust the hinges so that the seals seal properly. The hinges have enough of a grove that you use them to adjust the doors.

Thank you for choosing

Replacement glass shelf required

Not too sure what your glass shelf looks like, but if you can't find replacements it might be easier to just get a sheet of plexiglass and glass cutting tool from a home depo (or the like) and cut it to the correct measurements. That's what I did for mine.

Freezer door rubbing

take the freezer door off and put a washer or two on the bottom hinge. sometimes there are extra plastic washers on the top hinge that you can move to the bottom to lift it up.
also check if the hinge is bent or loose, as this may cause the problem.
