May tag plus madel MBB2256GEW has condensation between the closed refrigerated and bottom freezer door . We already replaced the seal on the frig. but no luck, I open the frig door and it drips .

This is likely condensation that occurs when the surface of the door frame (the part the gaskets close against) drops below dew point. Dew point is the temperature at which moisture condenses and varies from day to day depending on temperature and humidity. Refrigerators have a "dew point compensator" that is either an electric mullion heater or a "Yoder" loop made up of a part of the condensor coil. Both supply a small amount of heat that keeps the surfaces above dew point. Be certain your box doesn't have a switch for "Energy Saver". If it does, then turn off the energy saver. This switch controls the mullion heater. Turning the energy saver off - and the mullion heater on - will prevent more moisture from forming. It will NOT remove moisture already there, just wipe that off first. Other external causes could be a HVAC duct blowing cold air on the refrigerator, a refrigerator/freezer door left slightly ajar or (the worst case) a separated heater inside the case. (On a foamed in place cabinet this is not repairable.)

Seal needs to be replaced around door. Make sure magnetic strip is tight against sides of refrigerator, even if you have to cut the outside so it lays flat against the sides.

Door hot

Totally normal. The condenser sends hot gas through the frame to stop the freezer door freezing to the frame. Check to see if you have a fan behind the condenser grill and make sure its running and clean

Need help with passenger window not aligned and not closing inside weatherstrip. How can I fix?

depending on what type of vehicle you have this could be an easy fix.
if your vehicle has a frame around the window, then the frame may be
sprung. roll the window all the way down, open the door, let the bottom inside of the door rest against your leg, then grab the frame at the top and pull it inward toward the vehicle. this will spring the frame back inward and help seal it against the weatherstripping. hope this helps....

Door seal not tight on upright freezer

Check the door sits straight and square on the front. You can "adjust" with the heel of your hand to make it sit flat against the frame. Even a poor seal shouldn't make frozen food thaw - check and clean the condenser and fan

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water

If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.

Refrigerator door warped? condensation inside

pull the door seal back and look behind it. if you see 1/4 inch screws every 6-8 inches then you can re-straighten the door.
  • take the door off of the refrigerator and remove the handles
  • lay it down on a flat surface, like a large table or hard floor (not carpet)
  • loosen (dont take out) all of those screws behind the door seal. this should relax the metal part of the door so you can twist it and make it flat against the floor. 
  • once it is completely flat on the floor on all corners then tighten all the screws, starting with the center of each side and work towards the corners.
  • when you reinstall the door make sure you line up the door correctly before tightening the hinge bolts.

Kenmoore refridgator side by side rubber gets hot

If you have a model with an energy saver switch turn the switch on. This reduces the heat to the mullion heater built into the door frame.
The door frame heater is used to prevent moisture from condensing on the seal surface around the door and acts as a thermal break between the outside and temperature inside the refrigerator.
