Question about Thermador 36'' Bottom-Mount Refrigerator for Custom Panel - KBULT 3671A/KBURT 3671A

Open Question

I have a Thermador 36" with bottom freezer door that seem to have a break along the seal in the upper right hand corner. I'm not sure whether the internal rail is bent or some screw is missing, but is this common problem? Because the gap in the seal, ice forms around opening and then melts. The water collected on the pan needs to be emptied every 2 to 3 days. How can I fix it? Thanks in advance...

I have the same problem, and thermador stated there was a recall on the hinges. They are replacing the hinges to a newer stronger hinge that will pull the refrigerator doors in tighter. It took three different service companies to find the answer to this problem because I was told Thermador does not want anyone to know about this issue they have.

SOURCE: door will not close all the way just replaced

It seems that you also a problem with the door hinges if the door seal gasket have been replaced properly. Your model have special hinges which give also a closing force which it seems that is what is missing for closing completly. The hinges have also an adjustment screws which can udjust the direction of the force and it need very carefull adjustment so the door is balanced whith frame perfectly. If the door however have big gups then the hinges or atleast one of the hinge have a problem and need to be replaced. We have here the parts diagram showing you model and the door hinges are part no 206.

If your refrigerator is fairly new, the seals probably are OK. More likely, the door alignment has to be adjusted.

Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer. eventually melting and ending with water running on the floor from both corners of freezer


Check the seal on the door and make sure it is "sound". Pay particular attention to the bottom or underside of the freezer door / drawer. Make sure nothing is preventing a seal between the fridge case and door. Misfigured, distorted or otherwise damaged seals can cause frost build up as you describe. Clear any objects / replace damaged seals found.

Good luck!

I have a kenmore upright freezer model #253.9266411 there is a gap in the upper left side does anyone know how to adjust the door? The seal is fine


I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water


If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.

Will not seal. new from sears.


The description below is for a gap at the top of the door. Adjust the procedure for gap at bottom by "twisting" the door in the opposite direction.

I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Lower door wont stay closed


I doubt it. The problem is probably that the unit is on an uneven or unlevel floor. Make sure all 4 corners are 'solid' and the unit is level. Is the door overloaded? Any hinge damage to either door or loose hardware?
