Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kelvinator fridge/freezer N410H-*8 , and both the doors seem to have dropped in alignment, with the lower door the most. Is it just a matter of replacing the hinges, or can a spacer be fitted to raise the alignment ?

Kelvinator Cyclic 330 not getting cold enough


Empty the refigerator and freezer, unplug it for about 8 hours, leave freezer door open so it will completely defrost. Plug it back in for 4 hours and close doors before you fill it back up with food. If you have a thermometer, check the interior temperatures before you fill it back up. Refigerator should be around 42 degrees F.

first look for an air vent in the bottom of the fridge(a small grill on the inside wall) & make sure nothing is blocking it, like bread eg: if there isn't then unplug your fridge & let it defrost, check the drain outlet in the back of the freezer, sometimes a small item like a frozen pea gets into the drain & the water freezes around it causing the air not to return to the freezer from the fridge, to push air into the fridge you must be able to get air out or it presurises,

I have a Kelvinator KC1 37A fridge freezer and the freezer section keeps icing up far too much. After defrosting within 3 days it has iced so much that the door won't shut. It only seems to have one dial...


A couple of things can cause this problem.

First - has the one temperature control you mentioned been accidentally changes to a lower temperature? If so, turn it down a notch or two.

Second - Is the door's rubber gasket worn, out of place or needs cleaning and not sealing properly?
If this is the case, it's letting warm air in and causing it to liquefy and for frost/ice in the freezer compartment. Open the Freezer compartment door and carefully inspect the gasket. If it has moved and out of place anywhere on the door frame, put it back in place. Is the door gasket dirty? If so, clean it with mild soap and water. Dry it and close the door.

To check to see if the door gasket is sealing tight, open the door and stick an unfolded dollar bill between the gasket and the freezer compartment opening. Close the door and try to pull the bill out. Do this in several places all around the door. If the bill pulls out easily, then the door gasket needs to be replaced. You can probably replace it yourself, if you can find a supplier for the gasket.

I suggest you try the following link, as they stock a lot of parts for Kelvinator appliances

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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.

Kelvinator Opal CS 390 F door has dropped down on handle side.


My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).
