Question about GE Profile PFIC1N Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

Oven door no longer closes

After cleaning our GE oven (~10 yrs old), we realized we could no longer close the door. We could raise the door 3/4 the way up and but then it just stops.

I slid the oven door off the hinges and pulled the hinges out. They looked fine - no sign of any breakage/damage.

Can someone tell me how I might be able to repair this?

Thanks,

Sounds as if the hinges are no longer closing properly,its the only thing gonna stop door from closing, unless you can physically see something protruding from the door that would stop it. no t totally unheard of for the hinges to fail, especially after a self clean cycle

Cannot close oven door after cleaning


Hi Pauline:
Lots of oven doors are mounted by metal tabs that slide into slots.
I'd guess that maybe while cleaning, they may have moved.
Try moving the door towards the closed position until it binds or stops. Stand facing the door, knees against it, and hold both edges of the door with your hands. Gently lift the door and then try to slide it back down toward the hinge point. If it does not want to move, use a flashlight and try to determine what is stopping it from closing.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

Frigidaire FRT17G4BW9 doors not staying closed


Adjust the front legs of your refrigerator slightly to raise the refrigerator. and and store items on the freezer door shelves to add weight. This is a problem of pneumatics and a testament to how tight newer refrigerators are. When you close the large refrigerator door it compresses the air in the refrigerator compartment. Both compartments are connected by air passages and thus the pressure change is transferred to the freezer causing the freezer door to pop open.

Raising the front of the refrigerator a tiny bit will help both doors close from the 90 degree point, which is desirable. Adding weight to the shelf will just help the process.

An additional aid in self-closure will be to use vegetable oil on a paper towel to wipe down the hinge side face of both door seals. All these maneuvers should aid in causing the door to stay closed and re-close if it should open slightly. Good Luck

I drip between the glass on my ge profile oven


The only way to clean this is to disassemble the door. Begin by opening the door about 1/3 and grabbing both sides. then pull and the entire door will come off in your hands. look for the screws that hold the door together. remove them and you can carefully separate the door and the glass to clean it.

GE fridge doors open and close


Raise the legs up on front till the machine tilts slightly towards the wall. The weight of the doors will then be shifted towards the machine instead of away from it. Only a slight adjustment is needed and should have been done by the delivery guys. A $5 tip would have gotten that done, you must be a cheapskate.

How do use self clean service?


CAUTION: SHOULD AN OVEN FIRE OCCUR,
CLOSE THE OVEN DOOR AND TURN OFF THE
OVEN. IF THE FIRE CONTINUES, USE A FIRE
EXTINGUISHER. DO NOT PUT WATER OR FLOUR
ON THE FIRE. FLOUR MAY BE EXPLOSIVE.
To set the controls for a self-clean cycle:
For satisfactory results use a 2 hour self-clean cycle for
light soils and a 3 hour cycle for average to heavy
soils.
1. Be sure the clock shows the correct time of day.
2. Press Clean. "— — —" appears in the display.
3. Press the Up Arrow until "3:00" appears in the
display for a 3 hour cycle, or press the Down Arrow
until "2:00" appears in the display for a 2 hour cycle.
4. As soon as the Up Arrow or Down Arrow is
released, "CLN" appears in the display.
5. As soon as the controls are set, the motor driven
lock will begin to close automatically and the "LOCK"
indicator light will flash. DO NOT open the door while
the light is flashing (it takes about 15 seconds for the
oven door to lock).
6. The "LOCK" light will glow until the cleaning cycle is
completed or cancelled, and the oven
temperature has cooled.
When the self-clean cycle is completed:
1. The time of day or “END” will appear in the display
window and the “Clean” and "LOCK" light will continue
to glow.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. If “END” is in the display and the “Clean” indicator
remains on, press Clear/Off. The time of day will
appear in the display.
NOTE: When the oven is cool, wipe away any residue
or powdered ash with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Stopping or interrupting a self-cleaning cycle:
If it becomes necessary to stop or interrupt a selfcleaning
cycle.
1. Press Clear/Off.
2. Once the oven has cooled down for about 1 HOUR
and the "LOCK" light has gone out, the oven door can
be opened.
3. Restart the self-clean cycle once all conditions have
been corrected.
How the ES 200 operates:
CAUTION: NEVER ATTEMPT TO REMOVE EITHER
THE BAKE OR BROIL ELEMENT WITHOUT DISCONNECTING
ELECTRICAL POWER FROM THE
RANGE. ELECTRICAL POWER IS CONNECTED
TO THE ELEMENTS WHENEVER ELECTRICAL
POWER IS CONNECTED TO THE RANGE.
The ES 200 electronic oven control system is made up
of three parts that control the bake and broil elements,
and the locking of the door in the self-clean cycle.
1. Electronic oven control.
2. Oven temperature sensor.
3. Oven door lock mechanism.

Oven door


tough but you need to open the door all the way stick a small screw in the hole on the side of the hinge that is still on then partially close the door this will alow for you to remove the door and then you can push open with your hand the other hinge and stick a screw in the hole on the side this will keep the hinge from closing on you then reinstall the door
