    Same problem. Had warranty person come and look at it, he said that's the way it's supposed to be. We sighed and accepted that, then years later we saw another stove without the gap and realized we'd been had.

    Same problem-Big gap at top and nice fit at bottom of the door.
    No adjustment that is visible

    Same problem, even since newly installed. Gap at top, nice fit at bottom. Repair man said we needed new hinges and gasket (about $200) but have not gotten them yet. The gasket still looks fine and has lots of "spring" in it.

My samsung freezer door does not close all the way causing frost buildup. I have replaced the gasket and leveled the fridge.


The hinges usually have some adjustment on them. Two person job, or put something under the bottom of the door to support it. Loosen the hinges a bit, pull the door forward at the hinge which should close the gap on the other side. Tighten down the hinges and check again.

The 2 doors on my Maytag SXS aren't even in the front when they close. The refig side sticks out. The doors are otherwise level and even in all respects. I adjusted top & bottom hin


Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

This was your first time setting the gap between the doors. So, I will share with you the various ways to adjust the doors gap.

1.) On the bottom of some doors there are adjustment screws for pitching the door left or right to set the gap. This was a good design idea, but there is not locking nut to hold the setting. Opening and closing the door will remove the setting. So, if you have these adjust screws, we will forget them.

2.) Lets try this: Adjust the front leveling bolts. Loosen the top of the door hinges. If the gap is smaller at the top, lower the leveling bolt up on the left hand side. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to raise. Pound on the doors to free them to adjust. If the gap is smaller on the bottom, on the right jacking screw, raise the jack bolt by turning the jack bolt clockwise. Once again, pound on the door to free for the adjustment. Then tighten to top door hinges.

3.) OK, This did not set the gap. The gap between the door is different depending on the model. Determine the gap which you would like to set. Using something solid like pieces of wood (do not use cardboard it will crush), loosen the top hinges, evenly space the wedges and tape them to the door. Now tighten the top hinges and remove the wedges.

4.) Ok, This did not set the gap. Look on the bottom of the door at the hinge. You have a matching set of grommets. These grommets interlock when the doors close to keep the doors closed. These are high wear components. The doors rest on these components. One grommet set may be more warn than the other affecting the door gap

Refrig door does not seal


First off, make sure nothing is stopping the door from closing completely. If the door is closing properly, then using a hair dryer, heat the gasket until soft and pliable. You can carefully stretch it towards the cabinet. There is a magnet in the gasket all the way around on the mating portion. While the gasket is soft, the magnet will pull the gasket until contact is made with the cabinet. Once a good seal has been accomplished, allow to door to remain closed for 30 minutes. The seal will cool down, and the new shape will be maintained. After that, close the door on a dollar bill. Gently tug the portion of the bill on the outside of the door from one corner to the other. There should be some resistance to your pulling. If the bill feels loose, apply more heat to the gasket in that area to improve the seal. DO NOT HOLD THE HAIR DRYER IN ONE PLACE TOO LONG AS IT WILL DAMAGE THE GASKET, AS WELL AS THE PLASTIC LINER.

E305075FPSA HighSpeed Eletrolux the door appears to not be closing tight.


No! this not normal, I'am concerned about microwave leakage, and a 1/8 gap is to much, should be tight against the seal "major safety factor" the door is out of alignment or the bottom latch is not secure "to much play" I recommend a pro simply because he needs test for leakage when the door is properly fixed.

Bottom freezer door on our LG is out of adjustment. One side closes tight the other has a .25" gap.


The easiest way to fix that is to pull the freezer door all the way out and give it a good little tug, you will see the plastic covers on the side rails there will be a little gap about one inch on each side make sure those gaps are even. Your door should be aligned

Door gasket gap


Hi, Try rolling up a piece of paper towel and place it behind the door gasket to stretch it. It might take a few days to stretch.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Gap between cabinet and top of microwave oven


eastlake...only if you think so. Most of these units use a submounting bracket set and then you hook your oven to it. This is a rather nasty installation...I've done several. If it's sturdy, you may just want to put in a filler piece.
