    It sounds like something isn't aligned properly; perhaps your hinges, perhaps your question.

Too bad that the censor on this website won't allow the word "but" with the second "t"!  Assuming that you've really got "rising ****", and not plain "lift-off" hinges, you've probably got hinges with the wrong "handedness".  Rising **** hinges come in left- and right- handed versions (for left- and right- hinged doors): fit the wrong one and the door won't rise! Whichever hand you've got, try fitting the other hand and your problem should be solved.
Good luck! If this has been helpful, please remember to rate my response.

My storefront aluminum glass door needs to be raised so the bottom of the door does not bush the theshold. There is a noticeable gap at the top


The quickest and easiest way is to get a flush mounted low rise threshold. Note the Length of the lower door frame to lower door frame. Measure the gap you need and subtract that from the height of the current threshold. That will tell you what rise you need. Go to Lowes, The Home Depot or even ACE. Tell a clerk exactly what you want. Let them show you what meets your needs. Keep your reciept and don't settle for a product that is just ok.

Aside from that, you will need to mark the current door hinge screw pattern in relation to the door. Removing the door side hinge screws, set the door in place, shim the door to increasing elevation. Check the level of the door. Mark the new position of the door mount hinge side. Drill holes in the door where the new hinge screws will go. Open the door and attatch the hinge to the door. You will also need to move the door lock orifice. That should do it. Good luck!

Hi. I have a 4 panel door 2.2 by 4.5 meters. The lift unit is a merlin 2600P. What is the correct door "float" requirement when fully down.Should it want to rise of its own accord or should it...


You do not want the door to start to rise on its own. If you manually raise the door at some point between belt and shoulder high it should stay there. If it does it is properly balanced. If it starts to rise or fall it needs adjusting or maybe new springs.

Door wont close right on my side by side


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.

COLD GARAGE
Not all refrigerators are insulated the same and not all condensers are in the same place. Your cold control is monitoring the temperature of the refrigerator section and is designed to turn off the compressor to keep things from freezing in that section. If it stays cold long enough outside in your garage the cold control thinks its cold enough and won't turn the compressor on. A makeshift closet to hold a little heat the unit generates will probably help.

Censor isn't working; temperature rising in frig (freezer ok)


Hi, do you think you could provide a model number. Some of those Samsung fridges have bad control boards at the back which could cause that problem OR the other possible fault could be the cabinet light sensor by the door hinge.( I'm going to assume it is this type based on the symptom you've described)Sooo...If you remove the hinge cover at the top you may find the receiving part of the sensor is misaligned or out of place completely which will prevent the semsor from detecting the door is closed, hence the interior light remains on and the temp rises and all sort's of unwanted side affect's. That is where I would start looking, but I don't even know if your unit has a push button door switch or the sensor style without a model number. However, based on several service calls for this exact problem in the past I'd say the chances are good it's the door close sensor if that applies to your model fridge. Hope that help's, let me know. Thanks for visiting fixya today. Good luck macmarkus :)

97 dodge dakota driver door sag, repair.


Likely nothing to adjust.
With the door open, see if the door can be lifted up and down while looking at the hinges. If there is play, the door hinge pins/bushings are worn out, and on some vehicles, the hinges are not serviceable, and replacement will be needed. G/L

The freezer door won't stay shut, thanks for any help


Look to see if the fridge side door rises up about a quarter of an inch when you open it. If it does see if the freezer side does. If it don't you may have a door closing cam which has broken. It's on the bottom hinge, is black plastic and can be replaced without removing the door.
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.
