SOURCE: How do you get the door back on

It's annoying but it just slides in from the top. You are probably doing it right but it takes a few times

SOURCE: Maytag Elevator Shelf

Let me just say, your post helped me, because I realized that I was not going crazy.  But, I was able to find the manual on this frigerator, which was key.  There was one phrase in the manual that gave me help - "when the glass shelf is pushed to the rear, it will align the rear latches.
Manual from whirlpool website:

So, the rear latches must be installed in such a way that the sliding glass shelf not only touches them, but pushes them into the correct position.
This fact helped me to try different positions, each time testing to see if the glass shelf would do anything.  Finally, I realized that there is a triangular shaped part of the rear latch.  The hypotenuse of the triangle is what comes into contact with the little nub on the underside of the glass shelf.  The nub on the glass shelf pushes the rear latch along the hypotenuse of the right triangle, and into the correct position.
Here is a picture of it installed in my frigerator,which I am sure will tell it better than any words:

SOURCE: refrigerator side not sealing tightly when shut.

Sounds like you may need a new magnetic seal. It is worth the money to fix it, saving electric and your food items.

Good Luck

Even though the belt is intact it can still be stretched and if it is it won't turn the brush roll when it's on the carpet. Here is a link to the belt you need and to a manual you can view:

SOURCE: Oven door hinge

Hi Monica. Use a flat blade screw driver to pry the hinge back into the open position. Once you have done that, I recommend that you enlist the aid of a friend to help you slide the door back on as it really is a two person job. Regards, Joe

It is a two person job unless you want to pull the whole stove out and take the cover off and then remove the springs. Put the door back on and put the springs back and the put the cover back on.

There should be adjustments in the hinge assembly. Go to Jen-Air .com, then select parts. They will have diagrams to view for repair, adjustment etc.

Check door make sure the screws are tight, clean door seal with alcohol all the way around, If all that checks out make sure the bottom shelf that your crisper drawers go into is pushed all the way back and there is not a lot of heavy objects weighing the door down make the necessary adjustments.

Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator Damper Door fell off. How do I put it back and what will happen if I cant?

Not knowing exactly how you broke it off, its hard to say just how its supposed to go back on. Since these are usually screwed into place, or in some cases its a snap tight fit, something is definitely broken, and you will likely need to replace the damper door. If you do not fix this properly, you will not be able to adjust the fresh food temperatures, and in fact you may freeze your refrigerated food, or it may be not cold enough to keep food fresh at all.

In cleaning my GE, I took the vegetable/fruit drawers out to clean and can't get them back in properly. The space is tight and there's not enough room to open the door wide enough to slide them back in. ...

You will have to pull the fridge out from the wall till you have room to open the door all the way. If it won't open, there is a stop on the bottom hinge that can be swapped or taken off to allow it to open farther.

If your are sure it's not needed you can just break the styrofoam and throw it away.

I can't get the crispers and shelf back in after cleaning.

The bar goes into slots right above the drawers and under the shelf above the drawers. It's not obvious to see at first. It's at the very front of the shelf. You have to slide one end of the bar in first then the other side. The bar sticks out a little on each side so it can sit in the groves on the side walls of the fridge. For the longest we tried to put it underneath the drawers even though we knew it wasn't right. Hope this helps. The Whirlpool website can give you a parts manual if you enter the model number.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf

You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

Whirlpool oven door

The metal bars go under the top door handle part, put them under the part you need to screw back in.
