When i close the freezer door, the spring pulls it tightly closed. then the left side stays tight, but the right side bounces back approximately 1/4 inch, creating a leak. Why?

More then likely the hinge is sprung (opened to far).

I have kitchen aid superba the icemaker works fine, except at the door where ice is dispensed the unit freezes up the ice crusher area like there is an air leak in the door somewhere which allows warm air...


I have had this issue with my french door kitchen aid freezer drawer. I have a toddler who sometimes gets into the drawer. If it is left open just a hair, it will melt everything completely and water leaks out all over the floor.

The drain gets clogged when the door gets pushed back in for a tight seal and freezes again.

Try to focus on keeping a really tight seal every time you open and then close the freezer...its almost like you have to TRY to close it hard to ensure it is closed. Total pain, but it works. When the door is closed tight, it stays like it is supposed to .

The freezer door will not close tight


Hello, check the freezer sliding door rail. Removed everything in your freeze then gently slide out the freezer door. Check the bottom of the freezer for food items that may have dripped into the bottom of the freezer. Now, the check the roller rails along each side of the freezer there could have been widget that got smash by the roller on the freezer door, if you find this smashed widget--he not drunk--he is dead. Scrape the those roller rails and clean the and get all the globs,ice cream, widgets, pieces of other different types of freezer flub.
Next, set a level on the freezer door and see if the bubble is point forward, if not then screw up the front two leveler in the front of the freeze--one on each side in the front of the freezer/refrigerator. I hope this help you. GB...stewbsion

We have an Amana side by side. The freezer door


hi. First of all, finding the model number can be a bit of a challenge. here are the places to look:
  • Inside the refrigerator or freezer, on the upper left or right side wall
  • Behind the lower crisper drawer
  • Behind the lower toe kick-plate
  • On the face frame of the refrigerator body

    Top freezer door does not close tight


    Sounds like the top hinge is loose. If the hinge has a cover, remove it then hold the door in the correct position and tighen the hinge screws.

    My freezer is frosting...there is snow all over


    In my case with constant snow and frost build-up in my bottom drawer GE freezer, it was because the drawer never properly closed. As one user noted, "there is no adjustment." However, there are "catches" at the rear of the drawer glides and in my case one needed adjustment because it was preventing the drawer from remaining closed tightly. SEE PHOTOS. The photos show many items removed, but to make this repair, you only need a butter knife to pop out the black plastic catch mechanisms at the back end of the drawer glides, and only if you can see that the spring is not properly positioned. SEE PHOTOS

    My freezer door will not stay shut. Dometic Model RM2453. This is the model with the freezer compartment inside the unit. Springs in freezer door seem weak or broken.Can I safely remove the plastic spring...


    yes you can.remove two screws from under one side pull it away slightly and it will come away.you will then have one housing on both sides left in the fridge wall,they will have a little pressure on them from the springs. just prise them away. you will need help to replace them, as you need pressure against the spring to keep the door closed. you can buy springs and housings seperately from camec there is left and right housings.give me a call if you need to ..

    Freezer door opens just a tiny bit when i shut the fridge side anybody know how to fix this


    to be honest with you, close the door more gently. there are air vents between the frig and the freezer, when you close the frig door its forcing air into the freezer which in turn forces the door open some. the air has to get out so thats what it does. i hear this complaint alot.

    LG bottom freezer


    Sounds like the refrigerator is sitting lopsided.  Make sure that the front legs are both retracted in the up position.  If it doesn't work, then lower the front leg on the hinge side of the refrigerator.  That will cause the frame to lift the door and it should be able to close properly.

    Freezer door won't stay shut


    Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
