SOURCE: Really Up Sh/t Creek With Fridge Door Hinge (broken bolt)

Put 2 lock washers under the remaining 2 screws and dont over tighten.
This should hold the door fine just do not over load the door.
Go to the hardware store and get 2 new hardened screws if you think you damaged the remaining 2 screws.

If they dont have any that will fit try an auto parts store.

SOURCE: Both the freezer and fridge

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.

You might have a missing bushing on the door hinge. If the refrigerator is still under warranty which should be 1 year. I would call 1-800-726-7864.

Item comes with right hinged door...I need left hinged door.


On some models you can move the hinges and door pull to the opposite side. On the side without a hinge, you would see plugged holes (plastic plugs covering the holes). You may have to move the top right hinge to the bottom left and bottom right to the top left (opposite of this for a left-hinged refrigerator/freezer).

You may need help to do this, and be careful.

How to Reverse Your Refrigerator Door (Most units)


1. Remove the toe grille.
2. Remove top hinge cover if available. Trace around the hinge with a soft lead pencil. This makes the re-installation easier. Remove top hinge and lift door off the center hinge pin, and set the door aside.
3. Unscrew the center hinge pin using an adjustable wrench and save for reassembly. Ensure that the plastic washer stays on hinge pin.
4. Lift the refrigerator door off of the bottom hinge and set aside.
5. Remove center hinge and shim by removing inside screw and loosening two outside screws enough to allow hinge and shim to slide out. Tighten screws.
6. Loosen two outside screws on opposite side of refrigerator, remove inside screw and install center hinge.
7. Remove two screws on bottom hinge with 3/8" socket wrench.
8. Install bottom hinge on opposite side with the two screws removed from Step 7.
9. Unscrew the bottom hinge pin using adjustable wrench. Move hinge pin to other hold in hinge and tighten with adjustable wrench.
10. Reverse door handles.
11. Move freezer and refrigerator door stops to opposite side. Before starting screws, use an awl to puncture the foam.
12. Position refrigerator door onto bottom hinge pin and screw center hinge pin through center hinge into the top of the door. Close refrigerator door to help align hinge hole.
13. Tighten center hinge pin with adjustable wrench.
14. Remove cabinet and hinge hold plugs and move to opposite side.
15. Lower freezer door onto center hinge pin (if you have a separate freezer door).
16. Close freezer door. Have an assistant lift up on opposite side of the door while tightening screws to install top hinge.
17. Flip top grille and reinstall.
18. Plug in electrical power cord and turn refrigerator temperature control to center position. Adjust setting as needed.

The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

  1. Anytime you move a fridge there is a chance that the doors will slide of balance so to speak, the simple fix is usually to readjust them by tightening/loosening the screws on the mount at the top of the door(usually under a cap that is the same color as your fridge). You want the door open when you adjust the level of the door and depending on your model the bottom may need to be adjusted as well. It should be pretty simple just open the door and hold it up a bit to about where you want it to sit and tighten your screws on the hinge, hopefully that helps.

There are adjustment screws or bolts on the hinge attachments to the oven. Loosen them and adjust the door using wedges to hold the door in place.

Do the door hinges ever wear out


I did my own search for the same problem and saw Dougs question and lack of a solution. I have the same sagging door problem and was looking for a fix.
First, when I removed the weight of the items from inside the door, the door closes properly. This means that the door is not very sturdy and cannot hold the weight of items placed on door shelving. There are NO adjustment mechanisms on the door hinges either. Bad on Amana. The GOOD NEWS is that I fixed the problem.
Take out all items from the door shelves. I removed the top hinge with the door closed to keep it from falling. I took the door off and placed it on the floor. The lower hinge has a plastic pivot over a steel pin - remove that for a moment. Place steel washers over the steel pin - about .080" or so thickness. Replace the plastic pivot. Replace the door. Add the normal weight of items back on the door shelves. The door closes perfectly. At least until the door sags again and I'll need to add another shim.

Our French doors aren't shutting right. You have to close the left one first, and then the right one. Even if you don't need to open the right one. It didn't used to do this.


It appears that your door hinges are loose. Open each door, take a close look at hinges at the top and bottom. You may be able to see an outline of where the hinge was and needs to be. Raise / Lower Door by hand until hinge is back in place, and tighten with a screwdriver. Pretty common.

When you shut the ref. doors the right one stays open. there is nothing in the way. you have to go back and shut it.


First I would look on the inside bottom of the refrigerator, where the door closes into and see if you can see any scrap or drag marks on the plastic. some doors will drop just enough to grab the plastic right befor the door closes.

your hinge could be bent causing this.

take a look at the top of the doors when their closed, and see if the right door is a little lower.

some of the doors can be adjusted at the top hinge moving the door to the right lifting it in the center.

GE side by side doors are not alligned


here is a diagram of the doors and the hinge area. Without seeing myself I can only gusess.

you box could be twiked or not level. The hinge at the bottom could be bent. There top hinge sometimes can have an ajustment that moves the top of the door left and right wich will raise the door a littel. to see if this has an ajustment you will need to remove the top cover of the top hinge and loosen the bolts a little and move the door left and right, if it does have someone hold the door where you want and tighten.
