Top hinges can swing right to left slightly when all 3 screws are loosened under removable cover. Use a 5/16 nut driver. Hinge cover may be phillips, 1/4" or 5/16".However, fridge case must be level left and right first. Level fridge with adjusters behind toe kick cover. Once level, you can adjust gap between doors with top hinge movement. Keep in mind that this is a man-made product and you may not get the doors exactly straight due to lose manufacturing tolerances.

1. You should be able to loosen the bolts that hold the door hinges(loosen only enough to be able to move the hinge) and move the door to the stright position. Retighten the bolts. 2. Check for obstructions that may keep the door open. If none, simply adjust the front of the frig upward to help keep the door closed. Usually the front adjustment screws are behind the toe kick panel on the front of the frig. 3. I advise that you also check the condition of the magnetic door weatherstrip.

If light stays on will refridg over heat?


The answer to your question is no,your refridgerator will not over heat. If you don't want to replace door switch you should be able to remove bulbs to shut off lights. I would try working door switch several times to see if it's just not closing all the way. Hope this helps. Thanks

REFRIDG DOOR OPENS A LITTLE WHEN I CLOSE THE FREEZER


Yes I think it's the door closing cam broken and worn away.To replace, 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.

Evaporator is probably overiced as a result od door not being completly closed at some time recently, turn off and defrost overnight with the doors open, turn on the next day and it should work ok within 24hrs. Regards Advisor
