Door closer pin

Each door has a round metal pin that can placed according to how quickly the door closes. It appears to be a spring loaded cylinder at the top of the door with holes in it. You turned that cyclinder and then placed the "pin" in the hole. This adjust how quickly the door closes. I have lost one pin. Door now has to be manually shut. Where can I get a pin???

Schreiber app6302 integrated fridge

Sounds like the door has twisted
a quick fix is to place an object like a soccer ball
on the floor in front of the fridge while the door is still open
Pushing the top of the door slowly try closing it against the ball to twist the door straight
this is a trial and error aproach that does need a bit of force however it does often work and saves the alternative which is dismantling the entire door

Door not closing all the way shut

top of the door hinge has a collar with holes drilled in it. there is or should be a roll pin in one of the holes which stops against a vertical pin. there is a torque rod in the door and this stop loads up like a spring as the door is opened to push the door closed. the torque rod is made to load up in either direction so they are compatible with left or right swing doors. they make a special tool for turning the collar and getting torque load but you can get it done with a small punch or two or even a couple of allen wrenches that will fit in the collar holes. you have to turn the collar to load up the torque rod and install the roll pin where it will do the most good. DO NOT put too much load on the rod it CAN and WILL break in the door. I usually open the door until I get a 3 or 4 inch gap and make sure it will close on its own from there. It usually only involves moving the collar two or three hole spots from neutral torque. If you cant get any torque or if it starts to load up and slips in the door than the rod is bad or the socket it sits in is stripped out.

Side by side kenmore refrigerator no suction on produce side

There is no suction normally. The door has a spring type mechanism to keep it firmly closed, and the magnetic seal takes up the slack. Check the door/ hinge is straight and tight and look at the top of the hinge. There is a small cylinder about 5mm high with a number of dimples in it. One of these should have a pin in it that operates the spring mechanism; if it is missing the door will not close well.

Also make sure there is nothing in the fridge protruding, stopping the door from closing and the seal sticking!

My gs6shexmb00 Whirlpool ice dispenser mechanism is loose and does not close the ice shoot 'door'. I also have a loose part, kind of like a piston (round with a stem that swivals). Trying to find out how...

I just repaired mine. There is a metal pin that acts as a hinge that slips into a hole on one side and snaps in place on the other side. All I had to do was snap it back into place. For someone that is mechanically apt, it's pretty simple to figure out once you remove the cover. To remove the cover work from the bottom with a flat head screw driver. Do not insert it too far or you'll be prying on the dispenser itself.

There's no way to know for sure that yours is exactly the same as mine. There are certainly parts that could break and cause the same problem. When I first snapped it back into place I had the black closing delay mechanism misaligned. It's a very simple piston whose cylinder needs to be perpendicular. Keep an eye on it, or you'll have to remove the cover twice like I did.

I had this problem. I reversed the decorative plastic strips, both ends of the strip have hinge pin holes, so the doors can open left or right. I put the TOP decorative plastic strip on the bottom and BOTTOM on top.

The flap on the ice despenser is not closing and water is forming in the pan below. Is there an scamatic of the door ice maker despenser?

If you can look up and see the flap is loose or sloppy, you need one of these two kits. Kit # 8201649 is the chute door, door bracket, spring, damper pot.
Kit # 8201756 contains all the above plus a metal bracket designed to replace the housing bracket, the door pivot pin and a metal brace.

Top of refrigerator just inside the fridge door has condensate collecting and eventually dripping onto the floor. I "inherited" this fridge from previous tenant who SWEARS that it is was caused by a...

If the door pops open after you close it, or the door is hard to push closed, the door closing mechanism has probably failed. Make sure you check for the obvious things, such as something sticking out of one of the shelves or orange juice cans rolling around the door shelf area causing the door to bounce back open when the door is slammed.

If you notice any unusual sounds when the door is opening and closing, such as a clicking or grinding sound, your door closer is probably worn.

There are three common types of door closers used in domestic refrigerators and freezers. We list here all three, along with how to access each component in order to change it.

The most common door closers used today are small plastic cams mounted at the bottom of the refrigerator and freezer doors. When you open the door, you cause the door to climb up onto the lower cam. When the door is released, the incline helps the door shut. To view a common door cam kit, <a href=" ">click here</a>. You can see how the upper and lower cams each have a hill and valley that work against each other to make the system work.

In order to change these, remove all food in the door, and remove the upper hinge in order to take the door off. Most hinges have a plastic cover that can be removed by prying up on it to expose the upper hinge screws. Usually, the cams mount with one screw -- one on the bottom hinge and the other on the outer door panel. On some models, the lower cam is riveted onto the lower hinge, and it's easier to purchase the lower hinge complete rather than try to drill out the old rivet.

If the cams you are replacing are for the freezer door that has a water line going through the middle of the cam, you not only have to remove the door but you must also disconnect the water line. Most water lines are fed through a channel in the door panel and clamped into place in the dispenser housing. Or, there may be a quick disconnect fitting behind the kick plate or apron on the unit. Once you've installed the new cams, you may want to put a light coating of lithium or silicone grease on the surfaces where the cams meet.

Another type of door closer is actually part of the upper hinge assembly itself. To view this style of closer <a href=" ">click here</a>.

In order to change this style, pop off the hinge cover, and remove the screws that retain the upper hinge. From there, pry up on the hinge and pull it through the hole in the outer door panel. If the spring is broken and will not come through the hole, remove the inner door panel. This is a big job so you might want to remove the door and lay it on a flat surface. Fold back the door gasket and remove all the screws around the perimeter of the door until you can separate the inner door from the outer door to gain access to the hinge assembly.

A third type of door closer commonly used is one that is internally mounted to the outer door panel, and you must separate the inner and outer door panel to gain access to the closer. To view this type of closer <a href=" ">click here</a>. In this style, the hinge pin actually goes through the closer. The hinge pin has a flat spot on each side of it that meshes with the cams on the closer. To view this style of hinge pin <a href="">click here</a>. On some Sub Zero units, this closer is mounted to the lower portion of the door and removal of the inner door panel is not necessary.

Door can't close on lg refrigerator

As you look straight at the white plastic square: Make sure the edge of the gasket is in place along the outer (in your case, left side) of the door. There is a metal spring near the white plastic square, and the end of that needs to be tucked into the groove of the door, not showing on the outside. Then, line up the white plastic square with the corresponding hole and use the palm of your hand to pop the gasket in, starting closer to the center of the door and working to the WP square area. (should only take about three hits.) Then, line up and snap on the long white plastic gasket retainer strip which runs from top to bottom along the inner edge of the gasket.
