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.

The cradle actuator on my kenmore ice dispenser will not spring back , I do not know where the spring attaches ,


Look for your model number around the fresh food section door. It will look like this=> 321.1234567
Without your model number it will be hard to help explain or provide an example. Sea Breeze

Right side door swings open without stopping.


At the bottom of the door , there is usually a steel piece which keeps the door from opening too far . Sometimes this piece gets bent or the screw holding part of it falls out , letting it move with the door . You should check the bottom of the freezer door and compare the angle and movement to the refrig door . Also , the adjustment for the door could be too hight , causing it to miss the door stop .

My freezer door will not stay shut. Dometic Model RM2453. This is the model with the freezer compartment inside the unit. Springs in freezer door seem weak or broken.Can I safely remove the plastic spring...


yes you can.remove two screws from under one side pull it away slightly and it will come away.you will then have one housing on both sides left in the fridge wall,they will have a little pressure on them from the springs. just prise them away. you will need help to replace them, as you need pressure against the spring to keep the door closed. you can buy springs and housings seperately from camec there is left and right housings.give me a call if you need to ..

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)
