My GE Monogram Frig door will not stay shut, it's lost its vacuum seal!

Check the fridge for out of level. Magnets on the weather-stripping hold the door closed. If there is something stuck on the seal, or too much weight in the door in an un-level fridge it will not make good contact. Try cleaning the rubber, and removing everything from the door after leveling. A good seal will stay closed even if the fridge is off.

Jenn-Air side by side refrigerator, Model JRSD2490. Not staying cold enough

Larger=colder. Make sure that 1) your magnetic strip around the fridge door is sealing well. Even a small leaking area could make it difficult to keep cold, especially in warmer areas. Also, make sure there is nothing obstructing the door from closing completely and sealing properly. I had this same issue where one of the door shelves was unlatched a little and the door would close but not seal. Beyond that could be motor or more likely compressor or coolant leak. Good luck.

My Neff fridge (K4316X1/GB) door does not close tightly on it's own and so does not seal properly unless I press it home

Try the following:
  1. Make sure there is nothing sticking out the fridge what could keep the door from shutting;
  2. Take a good look at the hinges and perhaps clean them or lubricate them (using Teflon spray);
  3. There is a white rubber strip all around containing the magnet with which the door should seal itself. Clean this rubber strip and the surface of the fridge it lands on;
  4. Make sure the fridge is level.

Doors won't close independantly. Magnetic "strips " hit and freezer or frige stays open slightly

Has the unit recently been moved or the doors removed at any time? Either the door are not aligned or they are damaged around the hinges some how. I would adjust doors from the top of the unit, assure not product (food) could obstruct the door from closing. Lastly double check closer at the bottom, this is a two piece system and I had seen this come apart recently.
I hope this helps

Hi, the freezer door will not stay closed. need to push the last 1/2 inch, sometimes it pops out again that 1/2 inch. nothing in freezer to stop it closing. Door need adjusting?? Greg


If the refrigerator is not properly leveled the doors will not close easily, the front side should be a little bit higher than the rear side. If that's how it is, then the issue is with the hinge lever that seems to have gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

You should level your door first This is probably the problem. There should be a cosmetic plastic cover over your top hinge remove it by prying it off then there should be 3 10mm or 5/16 screws that hold the door hinge on loosen them slightly and move the door to level it may help to have someone help you hold the door but normally the magnetic strip in the door seal will hold it. When its level across the top retighten the screws. If I need to clarify something just let me know good luck

Check for a door gasket leak. If you put a single sheet of paper between the gasket and door it should stay in place without any assistance when the door is closed. Use a strip about 3 x 3 inches and work your way around the gasket.
Good Luck,

Door will not stay closed

Try tilting the fridge slightly back, or use a spirit level or plumbob at back, non-curved vertical case of fridge to align.
The base should have adjustable feet for levelling.
If tilting forward, even a fraction, gravity will open it.

use a hair dryer to heat the gasket up and gently pull all the bends and wrinkles outs. this takes a tremindous amount of patients even with us techs, so work slowly. once you have that done and the gasket shift to form the door seal put a light coat of vasaline all the way aroung the gasket then push the door shut making sure you gasket is touching the door seal all the way around it mat take going over it again with the hair dryer with the door closed to get it to form correctly, once formed don't open the door for a min. of 4 to 8hrs if it can be avoided and after that make sure you close the door and it seals for the next week to 2 weeks which is about the time it take for it to cure properly
