Counter depth refrigerator

My counter depth refrigerator hits the corner of the countertop when the door swings all the way open, marking up the stainless steel door. Do you have any suggestions for preventing this? Maybe a creative way to stop the door from opening all the way? I thought about putting something on the edge of the countertop, but even rubber could cause denting.

    My refrigerator door swings past 180 degrees. I don't think that it has always done that so I'm guessing that the door stop is broken.
    Can you give me an idea of what is involved in replacing the stop? I don't want to get into something that incapacitates the refrigerator while I go searching for a second or third part :-).

Just to make sure , it is when the door is open to 180 degrees?

the door should have a door stop on it under the hinge.

is screws to the door then hits the hinge when it gets to about 160-170 degrees stopping from opening more

somtimes if a door is replaced this part is left off or yours maybe damaged

give me a model number i can tell you more

Do you have room to pull the fridge out from the wall, maybe just a couple inches? Pulling it out from the wall should give you more door swing without hitting the counter.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks,
Bill

No, the door is foamed together.
Remove small drip catch at bottom of dispenser area. Use silicone to seal recess along front edge and the two front corners. That should prevent water from getting under the door trim.

Home Depot lists a depth dimension for a GE refrigerator. Is the handle included in the depth dimension?


no. depth is measured from the back of the box to the front of the box but does not include the handles. The depth of the cabinet is used to determine if the doors will open sufficiently to clear countertops and half walls or appliances. Also helps determine if enough space will be available to open doors in small kitchens such as "c" shape, "L" shape or narrow galley kitchens. for small kitchens, the best frig is a side by side. The doors are smaller and less swing space is needed. A 25 cubic foot side by side uses less swing space then a 15 cubic foot single door. If you are worried about depth, you can also get a counter depth frig which will stick out past your countertops by about 2 inches rather then 8-10 inches with a standard frig. standard depth is about 28-36 inches from the back wall when plugged in. Handles get in the way most often in width measurements because they prevent the doors from swinging past 90 degrees if located next to a wall.

Pull it out from the wall. Remove the cover, most covers are card board, and check the fan blade to see if it is hitting something.

Refrigerator not cooling


if your talking about the damper vent door motor,it is behind the vent grille where the damper vent is and is controlled by the refrigerator temp adjustment control,sometimes these doors freeze open or shut from condensation,if this is the case take a hand held hair dryer and thaw and dry out door and hinges and then try adjusting temp asnd see if the door opens and closes now
