There are several type of attachments, so pick the one best suited to you....
1. (most likely) With the door open, pull on the plastic panel. If it is held on by clips, it will pull straight off. Look carefully at the clips on the panel. Usually, they bend out of position after being forced back on. Adjust the clips, and gently press back into place. If they are damaged, the clips can be reattached with a 2 part epoxy. I prefer JB weld epoxy.
2. Locate the screws that holds the plastic piece on, and loosen them. Adjust the piece. Tighten the screws.

Frezzer keeps icein over


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several things to check:

1.) Door Gasket -Take a piece of paper. With the freezer door closed run the paper around the gasket. If you can do that, then you are not getting a good seal.
Repair: Clean the freezer door gasket with soap and water. While still wet, take a hair dryer and a spatula, going around the gasket, heat the gasket while pulling the gasket out to expand it.
Note: This only solves the problem if there is frost in the front area of your freezer.

2.) Freezer fan not working - In some cases, The freezer fan helps to prevent warm air from getting into the freezer.

3.) Food Storage - Make sure you do not overload the freezer, and that the food product is inside the bounds of the racks.

4.) Fresh Food Section Air Vent Wide Open - This is your probable cause: Heat goes to Cold like a magnet. When you open your fresh food section door and then close it you are forcing warm air up the vent that goes to the freezer. You probably have a broken air vent assembly.

Why is there Water on floor under my freezer


Hello C. Richard Robinson - Is the door being kept open too long or frequently? If so, try removing the items needed from freezer ahead of time so the door is not open as much. However, main possibly could be a poor door seal. Try checking this by placing a dollar between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door then the gasket will need replacing and adjusting by a professional.

Door on new Kenmore freezer hard to open ... could this be a leveling problem? I wouldn't think it is an ice build-up problem since the freezer was only installed last Friday (9/24) and the ice maker is...


Check thoroughly for any obstructions, shipping tape, remaining pieces of plastic, in and around the doors, door frame, cabinet frame that the door contacts when closed, and around the upper and lower hinges. Do you hear any noises when opening or closing the door? Do you see the door rubbing on the inside liner as you open or close the door? Were the doors removed and replaced in moving? This last one, if it is the case, check the alignment at the upper hinges, loosen but dont remove the screws, and adjust the door away from center.

Re: danby upright freezer 20.1 cubic ft., model #


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.
