How do a fix a Westinghouse fridge door that has dropped slightly


Hinge screws probably loose. Refrigerator doors have hinges screwed on the outside. The hinges allow for you to move door to be level, loosen screws, move door level and hold it there till you tighten screws. Sometimes the hinges are covered with a plastic piece that you pry gently up on to remove.

Refrigerator door sags and binds opposite hinge side. Can lower hinge be moved to raise sagging side?


Most likely cause is a worn cam in the hinge. After a while plastic cam wear out a causes doors to sag. Take your model number to Searspartsdirect.com and find the hinge cams and replace. Our went out a few years ago and our door did not shut. We came back 4 days later to a real smelly mess all over our kitchen thanks to these plastic cams. To prolong useful lifetime, try coating the cams with protroleum jelly. Doors should shut when you release the door when open 1 inch by themself. If they do not, the refrigerator feet need to adjusted so front is a little higher than back.

Freezer door does'nt shut all the way


If you notice one side of your Maytag side-by-side refrigerator is significantly higher than the other, you might want to raise or lower one of the doors. The refrigerator door is configured at the factory to be slightly higher than the freezer door. The weight of items on the door shelves sometimes cause the doors to sag slightly inward. Making a small adjustment to the freezer door leveling screws will correct minor amounts of sagging.

Position the refrigerator in the place you plan to keep it, and make sure the refrigerator is level front to back and side to side with a spirit level.

  • 2 Remove the base grille, located below the doors, by pulling from the sides. The leveling screws will be visible when the grille is removed.

    The fridge door will not stay closed. I changed the gasket, tightened the door screws, cleaned the contact area and it still pops open.


    After all the good ideas you've already tried, the next things on your list could be:
    (a) level the floor under the fridge - they often sag under the heavy weight of a loaded fridge due to moisture/rot.
    (b) level the fridge itself - using the leveling legs. If the fridge continues to have a problem with
    the door poping open, try raising up the front of the fridge above level.
    (c) unload the door pockets - making the doors lighter may help solve the problem.

    Both the freezer and fridge doors hinge on the right, and the left hand side has sagged a little so neither neither door is sealing properly. How do I adjust the doors to raise the left side of the...


    The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

    Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
    Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

    REFRIG. DOOR SAGS SO THERE IS A GAP FOR COLD AIR TO ESCASPE


    If you have a 5/16th nut driver pop the top hinge cover and remove the 3 screws then take the top door off. Back off the middle hinge and reposition it do the door no longer sags. Tighten them screws and put the top back on using the same procedure. Hold the door in the correct position you want whist tightening down them screws on top. Snap the cover back on. Raise the front egs a hair to throw the weight of them doors towards the rear of the ice box and take some the work off them hinges. Then Party on!

    Driver side door sags.


    If your door sags it means the bushings in the door hinge are worn out, but there is a way to adjust it without replacing the hinges if they aren't too bad. If you open your door there are bolts that attach the door hinges to the A-Pillar, most of the time they are accessable from the outside. First get a car jack and position it under middle edge of the open door, put a small piece of wood on the jacking point to protect the door. Loosen the bolts to the hinges and raise the jack so it raises the door up. tighten the bolts on the hinges back up and open and close the door to determine if the door was raised enough to eliminate the sagging.

    Refridgerator door sags


    Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
    Good Luck!
