Right Hand door swings open too fast

If I have the right hand door beyonf the "half-way" point it will open all of the way with a "crash" The left hand door seems to be "dampered" in some way. The level side-to-side and front-to-back seem ok.

Re: Right Hand door swings open too fast

On the bottom of the door there is a part called a door closure kit.It operates like a cam. There are high and low points on the part that aid in the opening and closing of the doors. Do-it yourselfer project.

The refrigerator right side door swings all the way around when you open it (180 degrees). Shouldn't it stop half way? How can this be corrected?

Your frig should be properly leveled left to right and front to back when it was installed. If it is done correctly, when you open the door it should stop where-ever you stop it and it should stay there until you close it. If it swings either closed or open when you let go of the handle, it's not level. The door stop is there to keep the door from opening too far.

How do I change the door from left hand to right hand opening

on the top right hand side of the refrigerator you should see little screw cover caps,, also on the door and on the bottom of the door. remove these caps -- now remove the screws that hold the hinges for the door and just switch everything over to the other side. everything is a mirror image of the other side --- where there is a screw that holds the hinge on one side -- there will be a screw hole on the other side that is covered by a finish cap,,, same thing with the hinge pin hole. tighten everything up and use the finish caps to plug up the now exposed holes and there you go -- right hand opening door.
if you have any troubles -- just write me back here and I will do my best to walk you through it.

Door swings open too fast

Good day,
First check to see if the machine is leveled.
Make sure it is if anything not tilted forward. Very slight to the rear is ok.
As well ( if we are talking about the fresh food door), make sure the machine is not tilted to the right.

If the leveling is ok, then check the bottom hinge on the door to see if the cam which aids in helping the door close on it's own is not broke. If that is the area where the problem is, with a complete model number from the machine in hand, go to any appliance parts house that carries GE parts.
They should show you a exploded view of the components and what components you need.

Maytag Fridge French Door hinge discrepancy - hard swing

Vhotho, Maytag put out a service bullitin regarding this problem. This of course is for the model that is posted. The fix is to install a new right side center hinge and door stop limiting the opening to 135 degrees. They must of redesigned it. I can give you the part numbers. Black and stainless the hinge is 67006443 and the stop is 67006276. For white the hinge is 67006379 and the stop is 67006278. This bullitin came out in Feb of 2006. TDR-0057a-b. back.
