Oven door not closing properly

If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

Freezer seal

Good day,
The first step is to make sure the machine is leveled properly.
It should not be allowed to lean to the left. As well, the adjusters should be set, so there is a slight tilt to the rear, so the doors have a tendency to close on their own.

The freezer gasket should be cleaned, as well as the frame it makes contact with.
The reason this happens is a lot of air is pushed into the machine when the main door is closed. There are 2 openings between the main compartment and the freezer, so the air is forced into the freezer compartment, wanting to push it open.
If the gasket on the freezer fits well, then the problem, is the gasket's magnets have become weak.

The repair is replacing the gasket. However, many people find ways to use the machine by adjusting their habits to ensure the door closes. One example is to keep a hand on the freezer door when closing the main door, or, closing the fridge door slower.

In any case it's your decision as to what you want to do.

Right side door does not close unless you push it closed with your hand

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.

Main door doesn't close easily

You may well need to purchase those bottom end parts to correct your problem. But first.....

Spray the door gasket on the hinge side with a food compatible
silicon spray. (makes it slippery).

Remove the heavy items from the door, and loosen the screws on the top hinge and try to adjust the door for a better fit.

Right side door pops open when left door is closed

Is this a new unit? This is caused by air rushing into the other compartment through a damper control. Most mfr's. install an air check valve at the bottom of both doors that will pop up to let external in, thus alleviating door blow out.
Apply a food grade silicone to the face of the door seals to add tackiness to to the surface. Follow link to purchase. A suitable substitute would be a little Vaseline.

Freezer door opens easily

The freezer door has a rubber gasket fitted with magnet beading. In case the gasket is torn or the magnet strip is missing due to continuous use the door does not close. Just replace the gasket and you will see that the door does not open unless you physically open it.

Freezer door rubbing

take the freezer door off and put a washer or two on the bottom hinge. sometimes there are extra plastic washers on the top hinge that you can move to the bottom to lift it up.
also check if the hinge is bent or loose, as this may cause the problem.
