SOURCE: changed freezer seal,bottom half of door won't close tight

tough job there , you must get a hair dryer and carefully heat gasket until it seals properly. some gaskets take hours to get to seal right.

SOURCE: I've checked door seal for leaks, etc; made sure

You can clear the drain tube by gently reaming with a wire hanger.
Blockage won't cause it to freeze up so quickly though. Check the thermostat setting? Otherwise it is very likely that the thermostat is not deactivating when it should. This would require replacement of the thermostat.

Door seal not tight on upright freezer


Check the door sits straight and square on the front. You can "adjust" with the heel of your hand to make it sit flat against the frame. Even a poor seal shouldn't make frozen food thaw - check and clean the condenser and fan

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!

The refrigerator door side does not shut tightly. The gasket seems to be ok and we leveled the unit. Still not shutting tightly like the freezer side which seems to have a magnetic pull to assist close....


Check bottom hinge cam riser located on bottom hinge the pin that goes inside the door it's plastic it's a 2 piece part 1 part goes over hinge pin and the other goes inside door hole. They get worn and break. If you replace this make sure you get both parts until you do try adj. top door hing to get the door tighter.

I have a Frigedaire Upright freezer, Model says


to verify what i think could be the problem i would need the complete model number so i can recheck what i am about to tell you
the freezer has a heater where the door gasket seals itself on (not on the door behind gasket but on the freezer itself) see if you can feel if it is warm where the gasket rest on the freezer this help it get that solid air tight seal. and prevent ice build up on gasket

well this maybe one possible without being there its alittle hard to tell what else hope this was alittle helpful

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

Freezer door won't stay shut


Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
