Some refrierators have magnets at the bottom of the door. some times the magnets get moved out of place and the door no longer makes contact with them. try looking for the magnets with a steel screwdriver and inspect to see if they are in the correct place.

Side by side kenmore refrigerator no suction on produce side


There is no suction normally. The door has a spring type mechanism to keep it firmly closed, and the magnetic seal takes up the slack. Check the door/ hinge is straight and tight and look at the top of the hinge. There is a small cylinder about 5mm high with a number of dimples in it. One of these should have a pin in it that operates the spring mechanism; if it is missing the door will not close well.

Also make sure there is nothing in the fridge protruding, stopping the door from closing and the seal sticking!

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is...


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. When the opposite door is closed air is trapped and forced out the other door pushing it open.
The door seals contain a magnetic strip that hold the door to the fridge, these magnetic strips have lost their strength, to test this use a shhet of paper. Open the door, place the sheet of paper across where the door closes, shut the door, then slide the paper out. If the paper comes out without any resistance then the door seal needs to be replaced.

LEC L6046W FRIDGE - ICE/FROST INSIDE THE BACK WALL. MOTOR IS RUNNING CONSTANTLY.CLEANED ALL THE ICE OFF BUT WHEN SWITCHING BACK ON, WITHIN 10MINS THE ICE,FROST IS BACK?


1.I think you might have a thermostat problem it is over cooling the system and doesn't shut off when it is suppose to. Replace the thermostat
2.If the door seal is broken or the door is not closed shut with the seal magnet nice and tight against the fridge it will form ice inside the fridge as well. Replace the door seal. (this is very common with old fridges)

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

Fridge Door not shutting/sticking


the fridge door stays shut only by strip magnets inside the door seal. cause is possibly that the hinges are out of line or the cabinet distorted. try levelling the fridge and tilt slightly backwards

GE Profile PSW26P Freezer door adjustment


You may have enough "play" in the adjustment to pull the door in tighter but sometimes you have to file longer slots in the screw holes. The top hinge cover comes off and there should be 3 screws there, loosen them and see if you can push the door tighter and while holding it there tighten them up. Also make sure you nylon bearings on the pivot points (usually the lower one) are all there and working OK. It is not too unusual to have them break and not notice the little plastic pieces fall out then the door sags and doesn't seal good.
