Hi,

check the door hinges a in place:
The door latch and lower hinge pin should hold your refrigerator door in place..
Uncover the door by removing the screws.Take the door off and pack bottom hinge with washers and make sure hinge brackets on cabinet are tight.
Check the seal is clean and pliable:
If seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently.
Check the refrigerator is properly leveled:
Adjust the middle hinge to straighten the lower portion of the door. Use a level to ensure the door is flush.

After fitting the door back again,check to see if the seal is touching on all sides when the door is closed. If not, you will need a new seal.Refrigerator is properly leveled.and hinges should be properly placed.

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Manually release the folding top cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Raise the folding top stowage cover.
Manually raise the folding top, holding the 5 bow up.

Manually lift front of roof off of the header and raise the #5 bow at the same time.
Manually release the Folding Top Cover latch using the emergency release cable.
Fold the roof down into the well.
Manually close and latch the folding top stowage cover.

Power Folding Top System Components
The power folding top system consists of the following components:
• Folding top control (FTC) module
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top control switch
• Serial data communication
• Folding top cover latch actuator
• Folding top cover pull down actuator
• Folding top pump motor with valve manifold
• Position switches and limit switches:
- Pin receiver switch
- Luggage barrier switch
- Folding top cover open switch
- Top open switch
- Top closed switch
- 5 bow raised switch
- 5 bow lowered switch
• Tonneau release relay
• TONNEAU PULL DOWN ACTUATOR Fuse 20 A
• TONNEAU RELEASE Fuse 10 A
• BATT 2 Fuse 40 A
• REAR FOG/ALDL TOP SW Fuse 10 A
• Folding top mechanical components:
- Folding top
- Folding top cover
- Folding top valve 1
- Folding top valve 2
- Folding top valve 3
- Hydraulic lines and cylinders

Folding Top Cover Latch Actuator
The power folding top system includes a folding top cover that is powered open and close by a hydraulic system that is controlled by the FTC module. A power unlatch motor is used to unlatch the folding top cover before the folding top control (FTC) module powers the top cover open. The folding top cover unlatching is requested by the FTC module via class 2 message, but is executed by the body control module (BCM). When requested, the BCM applies battery voltage through the folding top cover release relay control circuit to the tonneau release relay. The relay is energized and battery voltage is applied through the folding top cover release control circuit to the latch actuator. The actuator is energized and the latch releases the folding top cover.

The electronics on this are very complex ,

System Operation
Before any movement of the power folding top is allowed, the folding top control (FTC) module must be aware of the following conditions:
• Unlatch the header. The FTC module reads the pin receiver switch is Inactive.
• The windows must be normalized. Refer to Power Window Reinitialization.
• The ignition must be placed in Accessory or RUN.
• The transmission must be placed in PARK, or with manual transmission, the park brake must be applied.
• Trunk status must not be ajar.
• The luggage barrier must be in place.
• The pump motor temperature must be within the operating range.

After the last cycle of power folding top operation, allow the hydraulic system a minimum of 4 minutes to bleed down before attempting manual operation of the top.
Your best bet take and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

One of the tabs on the bottom of the drop panel (the lower metal door that folds out) is bent incorrectly. Try bending it a little which every direction is needed to close the drop panel.

Do not break it, there are no replacement parts for that brand.

How do you put the top down on a 1966mustang? It's a manual top... I think.


Down
- undo zipper on one side about 12" just to take a little tension out
- undo latches
- top down 2"
- close latches (if you do not close them you are going to rip your top)
- top down all the way, if you see a little circle and it is not folding just right, stop mid way and give it a light karate chop movement to help it fold properly
*put the boot on for long drives, it will protect the top
*store the car with the top up, it keep the material nice and properly stretched

Up
- Windows down at least 75%
- Top up and when it gets about 2" from being closed stop and open latches
- Close rest of way, match up the pins and give it a little pull and snap the latches

Fridge door not closing properly


Hello,

This section of this refrigerator door repair guide will walk you though repairing a refrigerator door on a side-by-side refrigerator. On most side-by-side refrigerators there is a cam that lifts the door up when you open the door so that the door has a tendency to fall down and back into place while it is closing. If the refrigerator has a cam and it is working properly, the refrigerator door will rise up when you open it and lower when you close it. If this cam is broken the door will not close properly. A lot of refrigerators have two cams, one screwed on the door and one on the hinge. You may have to replace the entire hinge to replace the lower cam but the cam on the door can always be replaced. You will have to order the cam by model number and can do so on this website AppliancePartsPros.com.



On side-by-side refrigerators without cams there will be a spacer on the door hinge. If this spacer is missing replace it. Note that any plastic spacer will work as long as it will go on the hinge pin and is not too thick. Never use a metal spacer because this will cause wear on the door and it will eventually squeal when closing.

As on top-freezers the door gasket may be ripped and if so refer to the bottom section that talks about door gasket replacement.

Sometimes the door can get warped out of shape. If the door is closing at the top and not at the bottom or vice versa the door may be warped out of shape. You can fix this by twisting the door back into shape. Take you foot and place it at the bottom and pull the door out at the top or place your foot inside the door at the bottom and push at the top with your hand depending on which way you need to twist the door. Note don’t over do it twist it a little and if it isn’t enough twist it a little more. If it gets worse you may need to twist the other way.


hope this helpout ......

ok wht you have to do is grab the hinge with pliers or your hand and fold the hinge to the open position,carefull this hinge has some pressure to it and you dont want to pinch your skin ,once the hinge is open,you want to take a screw or strong nail and stick it thru the hole that is between the top of the hinge and bottom in the center put the nail thru the hole and let the hinge close slow i,it will hold the hinge 3/4 open,now hook the door on it will be 3/4 open once you feel it latch on the door open the door all the way pull the nails out and close the door ,it takes a little practice but youll get it remember to use the nail to hold the hinge open,youll see the hole on the hinge
