SOURCE: Bottom hinge on fridge door broken

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.

SOURCE: Refrigerator is freezing food AND broken ice container part.

Just lower it one number at a time , wait 24 hrs each time you re set it until you reach the right temp. 34-40 deg.

Your filter light has not came on most likely because it has not had the time to. You do not need to replace your filter every six months. This is a safe guesstamate from the manufacture , it depends on water quality and use of water , some filters will go years and years , the filter indicator does not even know if the filter is bad.
When you notice water pressure slowing when dispensing from the door you know the filter needs replaced.
Hope this gets you out of that service fee. This should FIX IT!
If you have any questions let me know.

SOURCE: Refrigerator door fell off.

Should be able to just replace the pin if the door didn't get damaged. If you go to, put in the model number and you can get a parts breakdown and order the parts yourself and save some money.

SOURCE: My refrigerator door on my side by side will not

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.

My refrigerator door does not come up high enough to push in the button when it closes, so the alarm keeps beeping to signal that the door is not shut. I thought if I removed everything from the door,...

You may have one of two problems, you either have too many spacers on the top hinge or not enough spacers on the bottom hinge. With the door on, measure the amout of of distance the door has to come up in order to close properly, say it's 1/4". That being the case, remove door from fridge and install a 1/4" plastic washer over the bottom hinge pin which holds the door in place. It may be necessary to remove a spacer from the top hinge in order for the door to close properly after installing the new bottom spacer, or you may get lucky enough to just take one from the top hinge and put in to the existing hinge spacers on the bottom. Reinstall door and check for proper closure and allignment. Hope this solves the problem.

How do i fit the door on the other side

If you look at the opposite side of your refrigerator, you'll find one or more plastic covers which can be removed to expose mounting holes. You have to remove the doors from the current mounting position, remove the hinges and transfer them to the other side, install the doors and you're done

I have a sears kenmore elite refrigerator. It is a side by side. The doors don't line up when closed. The freezer side is about 1/4" higher. It looks funny when closed.

there are plastic spacers located at the hinge on the bottom of these units, and they break after wear and tear , they are also beveled so they help the door close,, check to see if yours are in good order, if not you'll have to replace them,, to do this you remove the top hinge,, its just a couple of screws that hold the hinge on under the plastic deco cap ,, once you've done that Lift the door off the lower hinge,, install the spacers, and place the top hinge back once the door is reset

Fridge door not closing properly


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

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 ......

Door not closing as it has dropped down slightly

Refrigerator Door alignment has long been the bane of homeowners worldwide, so you're not alone.
Any time you remove a door on a refrigerator you take it out of alignment. The best solution for reattaching the doors is from the bottom to the top. This way you will have access to all the screws as you assemble. First set the primary bottom pin, be careful to remember adding the non friction white plastic washer on this pin/hinge. How ever many washers you took off, you will have to replace. Also remember that all of the weight of both doors finally rest on this one main pin so it's alignment is most critical. Once this pin has been screwed into place (loosely) you may close the door and concentrate on manually adjusting the door until it is square and aligned with the body. Take special note of the gasket on the hinge side only and be sure that it isn't squashed bent curled or severely mashed as this will defeat proper sealing of the door.
IF the gasket is compressed to far you can add spacers to the facing of the bottom and middle hinge to bring it away from the main body of the box itself.
If you have lost your spacers you can make new ones easily from coffee can lids.
Once the bottom pin is aligned you can loosely attach the middle pin/hinge which controls movement of both the refrigerator door and the freezer door. Now you should be able to open the Fridge door without it binding on the bottom. If so, you should now close the door, realign to the body and tighten these screws. Check once again for free door movement. Now proceed to the freezer and repeat the above procedure, making sure to add the non-friction washers.Align to the box and make sure the gaskets close and float easily then tighten the screws and Viollah!
You're done!.

Hinge holding large bottom door has come off and door came off

Good day,
You will have to remove the freezer door first. Save all bushings and spacers as you go along.
Remove the top hinge first, then lift the freezer door off.
Next remove the center hinge.
You will need to determine what happened to the bottom hinge.
It is usually bolted on with either 2 or 3 bolts. As well it has a pin inserted into it that points up.
After the bottom bracket is bolted into place properly, with the pin sticking up, you place the main door on the pin,and close the door.
The next step is installing the center pin, which is held in with screws as well. Make sure the door is aligned, then....
re-install the freezer door.

I have a Dometic rm2652 refrigerator the door hinge broke

the hinge is not plastic, only the insert sleeve that goes into the hole atop the door is plastic. If the actual hinge (metal arm) is broke, then you need to order a new part (not difficult if frig is 20 years or less). If you cannot find the part, go to a metal shop and show them the broken part, they usually can repair it or remake a new piece.
If the hole in the door went bad (that is: if the hole tore open and cannot hold the hinge pin) you need to have a metal repair brace added to the door. This will involve the metal shop or a good mechanic that can come to you and do the neccessary repair at the house; otherwise you need to bring the door to the metal shop. macgivor

Hing and plug fell out and now Ice maker door stays open

It just un-snaps. Pry gently along the top or bottom edge and work it off with a plastic putty knife. Snaps pretty good and sounds like it is breaking.
