You need to buy a bolt washer, its a little flat ring that you put in between the revolving bolt and the head of the screw. this will help rotate the screw while keeping the bolt in place therefore preventing it from always falling off whenever you open / close the door

The fridge door dropped


Probably a loose or lost bolt connected to main body with a pin that supports the door. Usually the fridge has top and bottom pin hinges for adjustment so the bottom one must the problem. Look around for bolt/screw on the ground. If can't find it you will need to buy one to match from hardware (unscrew matching bolt/screw from other side and match). You may need a short handle screwdriver if space is limited or carefully have someone tilt the fridge to get access -MUST place a wood of block under so it doesn't fall squashing your hand when working under . Use small mirror placed underneath to see where the bolt/screw goes. Replace fittings and adjust height of door so it seals.

Right side door swings open without stopping.


At the bottom of the door , there is usually a steel piece which keeps the door from opening too far . Sometimes this piece gets bent or the screw holding part of it falls out , letting it move with the door . You should check the bottom of the freezer door and compare the angle and movement to the refrig door . Also , the adjustment for the door could be too hight , causing it to miss the door stop .

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.

The right door won't stay closed


There is a recall on Viking refrigerator hinges. Check and see if your refrigerator falls under this recall. It may just require a new hinge. The recall hotline # is 888-345-2650.

You call also see if it falls in this category.
VCSB483, DDSB483, DFSB483, DTSB483 Date codes before 030104 (on serial # ). Go to this site to see if you fall under the recall.

Ice maker thru the door


usually due to rust or crud build-up. try lubricating moving parts with WD-40, or possibly removing accessible screws/bolts and manually cleaning it up.
