A lot of the sub-zero doors are good and heavy duty, but the plastic shim under the hinge wears and can drag when you go to close door, usually a simply repair to find a washer for the door hinge.

My amana bottom freeze refridgerator door in opening a little when the top door is closed. do i need to adjust the screws or is it something with the seal?


raise the front legs so the machine is tilted back a little,this will help the top door close easier,also most likely you have nothing heavy on the door itself,all a fridge does is move air,the evaporator coil gets cold and the evap. fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge side and the air keeps circulating,when you shut the top door it's pushing the air down into the freezer and popping the door open,like i said raise the front legs a little and put stuff on the freezer door so it has some wieght to it and it won't pop open.hope this helps salde

My door won't stay shut. How can I adjust the door or is it a problem with the gasket?


First of all is this top freezer/refridgerator new or has the consumer had it for awhile? If not new, could have frozen food, piece of ice, etc obstructing the door. If you have frost(ice build-up) you could probably turn down the temp adjustment, might not need to be quite so cold, just a suggestion. Open the door and check the seal for damage, there is a magnetic strip in the seal that sticks to the body of the fridge keeping it shut along with vacuum etc. Check seal before calling service (800) # for further advice/ servicing. Good luck, best regards.

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.

The refridgerator door is not sealing properly and the magnetic seal between the refrig door and the freexer door is hot.


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.

Door keeps popping open


You don't say what kind of refrigerator you have, so this will be a generic answer. You need to replace the door closing cams, which are located at the bottom hinges.

The cams provide a sloping surface or v-shaped notch to lift the door slightly as you open it. The cam's sloping surface causes the door's own weight to hold it closed. If the cam has broken, it can fall out or turn with the door, allowing the door to come open.

The magnetic gasket is only supposed to ensure a good seal, not hold the door closed. You don't need to replace it.

Freezer door wont seal and stay closed


Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

Freezer door pops open.


normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy

Freezer door won't stay shut


Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
