Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Why is my True GDM-47PE57112 door not closing all the way? and sometimes it sticks and is impossible to slide open or closed?

We have had this fridge for a while and it was used when we got it... so it's been around the block. Recently i went to close the door and it bounced back open, about an inch... No big deal, but then it continued to do this so I had to keep pulling it closed. Then one day it was impossible to close and open, it was like I was lifting the entire door to get it opened and closed. How can I fix this? I thought it was the cable, because it has a little slack it it but now im not so sure... If it is the cable how do I replace it?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed

This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

SOURCE: freezer door wont seal and stay closed

Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

SOURCE: sliding door won't close. 2004 nissa quest

Mine was doing the same thing. I took it in and watched them fix it and first they steam cleaned the area under the floor where the rollers are. Then they took a spray and lubricated the rollers and the track where the rollers are. then they cleaned the brass connectors on the side of the door where the safety pins touch. I could have saved ALOT of money doing this myself. I hope this helps!

Fisher and paykel fridge is making a whining noise only when door is closed. Thanks in advance.


If this is a large cabinet or larder fridge the cabinet is not rigid enough to maintain it's shape unless it rigidly stands level and square. It can take a deal of time and effort to adjust the front feet in order to level and square the cabinet on a relatively flat floor and sometimes it is impossible without first preparing the floor.

It is important for them to stand level and square and at the same time stand firmly on all the feet. If they are allowed to operate out of plumb for any length of time the motor/compressor unit can soon become noisy. Often this is only noticed when the door is closed or open. The door is a major part of the rigidity of the modern fridge and if the fridge is not properly levelled the shape of the cabinet will change as the door is opened and closed causing any compressor noise to be transmitted differently.

The gas charge of the modern fridge can also make weird noises as it is being pumped around the circuit. Ours sometimes sounds like the wind blowing across an open chimney and sometimes like the sea breaking on to a pebble beach and sometimes like something sprung a leak. All this is fairly normal after the fridge has lost it's youthfulness.

Refrigerator door not sealing tightly


First things first - let's get the gasket sealing properly. If it is like most, there's a magnetic strip inside that sticks to the fridge case when the door is closed.

Is anything on the case or stuck to the door that interferes with the magnet seal? Clear it & try again.

How about the drawers / inside of the fridge? Sometimes, piling stuff up on shelves and in drawers that prevents closing fully can hit items on the door - making closing of the door fully impossible. Look at the stuff you have on the door while closing it - does it look like it strikes anything inside the fridge? Rearrange it and try again.

Is the seal misshapen-ed? Loosening fasteners that hold it in position and adjust the seal so it fits better and re-secure the fasteners. Test the seal again.

If all that checks out - open the door and inspect the gasket. Is it compressed / stiff / damaged? Replace it.

One of these fixes should solve your problem. The water issue may be related to this.. check after you're happy with the seal. Good luck!

The pulleys or copper tubing can be accessed by removing the aluminum siding located inside cabinet on either side. The left side contains the pulley and weightfs or left and center door, the right for right door (each held on by 4 1/4 screws) . To make the door close, simply make sure string is attached to weight, running though pulley, and attached to top of door.

I have TRUE freezer model number GDM-49F. the compressor start but the evaporator fan wont start what culd be the problem


Could be a number of things. It has a thermistor that sits on the evaporator to keep the fan off until it gets cold. It also has a switch above the door that switches the fan on when the door's closed. It could be a loose connection in the wiring, or, lastly, it could be a seized fan

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is...


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. When the opposite door is closed air is trapped and forced out the other door pushing it open.
The door seals contain a magnetic strip that hold the door to the fridge, these magnetic strips have lost their strength, to test this use a shhet of paper. Open the door, place the sheet of paper across where the door closes, shut the door, then slide the paper out. If the paper comes out without any resistance then the door seal needs to be replaced.

The doors stick when they close. how do I lube the pullies


Your door rollers are probably worn off.
To access these carefully lift the door off the rail, pull it out bottom first then unhook the string attached to the counter weight from the top part of the door .Tip the door upside down and you should be able to see 2 or 3 rollers spaced on the bottom track (or what is left of it
