Side by Side Fridge door doesn't seal completely

We moved a side by side and the movers bent the bottom bracket on the refrigerator door - now it won't shut. We tapped the bracket straight and it helped, but it doesn't seal tightly when shut. Is there a way to increase tension?

I would clean all of the door seals with a damp rag, and all of the contact points, also you can adjust the level of the unit a little in the front

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.

Yes depending on age. once changed doors never seal properly. because cabinet warps and seals flatten on one side. suggest to sell and buy another. you will never be happy if converted.

My brother moved and the movers removed the side by side doors


The dispenser assembly comes apart from the front. It should give you access to the waterline as it comes up from the bottom.
