Heat the seals with a hair dryer and then pull it tight - strap it tightly shut - you can also use some super glue to keep it in place while it dries.

Refrig door does not seal


First off, make sure nothing is stopping the door from closing completely. If the door is closing properly, then using a hair dryer, heat the gasket until soft and pliable. You can carefully stretch it towards the cabinet. There is a magnet in the gasket all the way around on the mating portion. While the gasket is soft, the magnet will pull the gasket until contact is made with the cabinet. Once a good seal has been accomplished, allow to door to remain closed for 30 minutes. The seal will cool down, and the new shape will be maintained. After that, close the door on a dollar bill. Gently tug the portion of the bill on the outside of the door from one corner to the other. There should be some resistance to your pulling. If the bill feels loose, apply more heat to the gasket in that area to improve the seal. DO NOT HOLD THE HAIR DRYER IN ONE PLACE TOO LONG AS IT WILL DAMAGE THE GASKET, AS WELL AS THE PLASTIC LINER.

HAVE A ED5FHEXT REFRIGERATOR MAKES A POPPING NOISE ON BOTTOM OF DOOR EVERY TIME YOU OPEN.


there is a magnetic vinyl covered seal glued all around the door frame to seal the refridgerator from escaping cold. If this seal has come loose, it will adhear to the door frame a little after opening and then be pulled back and make a slapping sound. Check this seal to be sure it is not torn loose.

Exterior panel between freezer and refridgerator that magnetic strip sticks to is very hot.


Have seen it many times before especially on Whirlpool fridges before. It is not detrimental to the running of the fridge but has the tendency to warp the door fridge seals. In my opinion, when the fridge was piped up, instead of running the high side (hot pipe from the compressor), through the radiator first and then to the fridge body, they have done it in the opposite way. As a result, All the heat from the compressor is going firstly into the fridge frame to eventually exiting and then going to the radiator.(Thats why it is so hot between the doors). To rectify this, you need a technician to swap the pipes over at the back as already discussed, then regass..

Freezer working but refridgerator at room temp. Door seal hot.


either the evaporator coil is iced up which means the defrost heater is bad,the defrost control is bad or the damper vent door which throttles cold air in isn't opening fully from the freezer to refrige,the evaporator fan isn't running or if electronically operated the main board behind the unit can be bad on these as this board controls all electrical issues

My refrig door wont seal tight can you buy


if you are having frost buil up on the model and it appears to be a freezer the seal may not be bad but you can not buy new magnets.the seal comes as one piece.you can do it your self.but try sealing the air flow vents in the bottom of the door with tape or silicone.the the diffuse plate in the back if it has slotted holes in it they can be covered with some aluminum tape.if you change the door seal the insultaion in the door panel should be change as well it more than likely has some ice build up in there

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!

Door not closing properly


Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff

Freezer door does not seal all the way


Air intake has water in it (vapour) better if you higher altitude away from sea level.as the freezer gets cold it sucjks in warm air as a thermodynamic equilibrium mechanism. Only fix...get NEW seals or new door with new seals. Try thick silicone grease in a tube for cheap messy fix and rub it over the magnetic seals. dont use vasaaline, thats for gays.
