Fisher/p nemo dishwasher door


it is sometimes linked to the dishwasher not level or the spring tension on one side getting weak. Refer installation manual http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/c11d2c17-cb0a-489c-99bf-a61513fbf876.pdf to make sure the level is adjusted. May need to replace the door seal in case leak is too excessive.

After defrosting door will not seal well


Check there are no small vegetables stuck in the seal. Crazy, I know, but it's amazing the places frozen peas can end up.

If there's nothing caught in the seal, perhaps the seal has deformed. How did you do the defrosting? Sometimes people use knives and damage parts of their freezer. Some people use boiling water, which can cause damage to seals. If the seal has become deformed, you will most likely need a new seal.

It might also be worth checking the door hinges; if the door isn't flush with the opening, the seal won't seal properly. Defrosting shouldn't cause any problems with the door, but sometimes accidents happen.

Good luck!

Dishwasher door leaks


If the dishwasher is built-in check to make sure the door is closing all the way and not hanging up on the side cabinet near top of door. If the door is closing properly then inspect the door gasket for cracks, tears, areas that the seal needs seated back in slots, and any debris. If it is damaged in any way a new door gasket seal needs to be installed. www.selectparts.com should have the seal you need at a great price.

The left side door has dropped and the piece that closes the gap between the two doors will not operate properly. It leaves the gap open and the refrigerator looses coolness. Need to know how to realign...


Check the lower hinge of that door for a broken closer cam. The upper hinge is adjustable and adjusting the corners in the front will shift the cabinet to align the door also.

The freezer keeps on frosting up ,and ice dispenser over flows don't know if that is related or not.Have to defrost every 2 weeks. Thanks.


Check the seal on the door.. Make sure the door closes all the way. Take piece of paper and put it on the surface that touches the refere and seal and close the door and slowly drag the paper out of the machine. Note how much drag is applied to the paper. It should be equal all the way around the door seal. If it is not, then either the seal is damaged or needs to be reheated. If it is damaged, then replace it. If it is distorted, then take a hair dryer and heat the rubber seal, careful to not get it too hot, and work the rubber so it will return to its original form. Recheck with the paper drag test and you should be good to go... Lemme know how it goes... 765d50e.gif

Bosch larder fridge door pops open


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.

GE Profile freezer door problem


I wil let you know of things you can do to solve this.
This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.

Hope this helps, Thanks Sea Breeze

Doors creak loudly when closed and pushed from the outside. Don't when open.


This short solution may help solve your creaking problem. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere.

We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly. Putting vaseline insid the hinge pins too is a good idea.
Let me know if I can assist you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze
