I had that same issue - a little tricky to describe the fix, but here goes (very non-technical terms used here):

1) take the freezer door off if it hasn't already fallen off
2) unscrew the single screw that holds the plate (that the freezer door attaches to), onto the interior side wall of the fridge.
3) gentle ease the plate away from the fridge wall. It has some plugs that expand to keep in snug to the wall. Now that the plate is off you can work more easily with the spring and door.
4) The spring has 3 parts, the hockey stick end, the spring tube in the middle, and the u-shaped end. The door has a longer top guide (male) and a lower, shorter guide (male), and a tiny hole about 1/2 inch from the top guide. The plate has a bottom bracket (female), a top hole (female), and the top ledge that contains the top hole.
5) insert the hockey stick end of the spring into the tiny hole of the door while fitting the spring tube over the doors top male guide.
6) (this is the tricky part) - force the u-shaped end of the spring so it straddles the top ledge of the plate so that one part of the wire is above the plate and one part of the wire in below the plate.
7) while doing #6, the top male guide of the door should be inserted into the top female hole of the plate
8) snap the lower male guide of the door onto the female guide of the plate
9) you now have the door assembly intact. gently push the plugs of the plate back into the side of the fridge and screw the screw in.

It took me awhile to figure out, and the above instructions are from memory so if I got it a little wrong, you'll hopefully be able to figure it out. The keys were understanding where the spring fit and taking the plate off the fridge. Good luck.

Re~attaching spring on Maytag Dryer PYE2300AYW While replacing the belt the spring slipped off and I don't know where to attach it to, one end is on the idler, where does the other end go?


Hi,
If I am not mistaken, your spring called a Idler spring should mount to the motor mount and the other end to the idler arm. But if you do not remove the drum from the dryer it will be hard to see how to re-install the spring. Remove the drum to make your task easier for your self.

Good Luck

When pushing the soap dispenser drawer it does not spring open any longer. Is there a way to fix this?


Re: Soap dispenser door not opening properly...(in case you still need to know)

You might want to use a small mirror (and flashlight) to see where the the spring assembly fits. Turn the rod facing towards you with the flat side up. It attaches at the rear, top left corner, near a small opening on the back wall (shaped liked the assembly). Fits into the "grooves". Apply enough pressure and you will feel it snap into place.

Door on Monogram ZIR36N won't pull closed and stay shut


The spring is actually a door closure , are the wheels that the bar closure mechanism goes through and attaches to the spring moving freely? It is entirely possible that a bin in the fridge is keeping the door open.

Chefmate RS-06DR mini Fridge (1.6 Cubic Feet)


My chefmate is **** because the internal fan is garbage, its cheap, it doesn't work or give enough flow, try a higher flow unit. You can get the 12v at tigerdirect.com with some high flow (AND LIGHTS :) ) for a few bucks to save your 100 dollar investment. The removal of the orig fan is easy. The evap is a good setup, but the cooling setup for it seems to be sh*t. Cheap fans = cheap setup and this is why everyone hates these units cause it can't pump the goods.

For the record my fan died, so my evap and fan froze over completely and spoiled my food and burned out the fan completely and probably helped to short it. I can get it going if I flicker the fan with my finger but she is dead and can't catch naturally. You could replace the chefmate fan with most computer fans too... fyi if you got a junk tower laying around.

While your at it clean the fans on the back and take off the back panel which kicks out the hot air from the hot flow. It helps if your unit is older (a year plus+ in a dorm is like 4 in a clean house lol)

Sir if you know how to fix your device then the only thing to do is to buy that missing spring. i dont know if that spring is available on some electronic shop but if you cant find one then let the technician help you for they have tools and spare parts. hope that helps sir!

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Normally the problem is a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
