GE refrigerator door problem (model TBX25PAYARWW)

The door is hinged on the right and when I close it, the left side droops and I can see the light still on above the door seal. Pulling up on the handle seals the door tighter and the light goes out. How do I fix the problem?

Is sounds like you will have a broken or worn out or bent hinge. It may be a combination of the 3.

Item comes with right hinged door...I need left hinged door.

On some models you can move the hinges and door pull to the opposite side. On the side without a hinge, you would see plugged holes (plastic plugs covering the holes). You may have to move the top right hinge to the bottom left and bottom right to the top left (opposite of this for a left-hinged refrigerator/freezer).

You may need help to do this, and be careful.

Gr Side-by-side refrigerator freezer makes noise when door close

It is possible that the hinges of your freezer has moved and shifted the alignment. So first of all use a WD40 cleaner to spray into the hinges and the areas around it. Now move the hinges violently for some time and check if has lessened. If so repeat the spraying. See if here is dirt accumulated along the hinges if the door is not moving parallel just push the end up a little . You must be able to get the hinge to shut properly by this correction. Hope you try . Good day

GE side by side doors are not alligned

here is a diagram of the doors and the hinge area. Without seeing myself I can only gusess.

you box could be twiked or not level. The hinge at the bottom could be bent. There top hinge sometimes can have an ajustment that moves the top of the door left and right wich will raise the door a littel. to see if this has an ajustment you will need to remove the top cover of the top hinge and loosen the bolts a little and move the door left and right, if it does have someone hold the door where you want and tighten.

Our side by side freezer door opens slightly

That is a common occurrance for side by side refrigerators. Closing the fresh food door is like having your car windows closed and closing the door. You can feel the air pressure on your ears. In the refrigerator, the air passes through the duct and into the freezer pushing the door open. The magnet on the door gasket should keep it closed. But it may be the freezer door needs the hinges adjusted to the door seats better when closed. Take the plastic cover off the top hinge and you can loosen the screws (don't take them out) and adjust the door slightly (so it looks even between both doors) and tighten the screws up. The top of the door should be level with the top of the unit, and the gap between the doors even the whole way down.

How do you adjust the doors to closed completely?

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.

Same problem but part is not on schematics for my model.

that is what helps your door close..if the cams are broken the door will drop down and may drag..if that is your situation then yes, get that kit.

Doors need adjustment

You should be able to take the top trim caps off the door hinges, loosen the hinge screws a little, and move the door(s) away from the center of the refrig, then re-tighten the hinge screws to get the doors to stop hitting each other. You may want to check the bottom hinge(s) for the hight. The bottom hinges and the bottom of the doors have matching plastic "ramped" washers, which raise the door as it is opened, which help them to self close. If one of those is broken, the hight will be off.

Suddenly our GE side-by-side fridge door doesn't shut

Check the bottom of the freezer door at the hinge to see how it is suppose to look and work, assuming the freezer door still works right. Then look at the ref. door and compare.

Sounds like something is broken or damaged. Usually there is a white tefflon washer which is beveled to allow the weight of the door to help it close. Check with an appliance parts store, you may be able to buy just the washer or the whole hinge assembly may come in a package.
