Question about Refrigerators
Fresh Food door does not seal on bottom handle side. Gap between closed door and refrig is 5/16 inch greater at bottom than at top on handle side (1+5/16 on bottom vs 1 on top). On hinge side gap is 1/4 inch greater at bottom than at top (1 on bottom vs 3/4 on top). I have leveled refrig side to side and front is 1/2 inch higher than back. Refrig is just a couple years old and gasket appears to be in good shape.

Lift up the gasket and look for screws securing the gasket to the door.
Loosen all of these screws a few turns and twist the door in the direction needed to seal.
Hold the door in this position as you tighten the screws.
This can be tricky and sometimes requires multiple efforts.

Apply a small strip of soft foam weatherstripping tape to the frame in the area of the gap. You may have to taper the ends slightly to match the gasket profile or the foam tape will force the gasket open for a greater length.

look at bottom of door. there is a metal bracket called your door stopper. this only allows door to open so far. if pushed open to far then you bent this bracket. bent back to normal position. your door will close

Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..

check the door hinge brackets there are plastic bushing they may be damaged causing the door to have slack in it open the door and take the handle and pull it towards you there should be no slack if there is it could be a bushing or just a loose hinge
