Is this a new problem? Or have the doors always been uneven?

Is your floor level? A tilting floor can make an appliance look uneven. Even if you assume your floor is level, it might be worth checking. Floors can change over time.

Is one door level but the other out of plumb? If so, the problem could be the hinges on the uneven door. This could be caused, for example, by overloading the door trays. One of the hinges could have become bent or damaged. If this is the case, it should be replaced. Check all the hinges carefully for signs of damage or wear. If both doors are out of plumb, it's possible that both doors have damaged hinges.

Another question is: just how uneven are they? Are they uneven by less than 3 millimetres? Or more than 2 centimetres? Obviously the bigger the unevenness the more likely you will need to get it fixed. But if it's tiny, it might be just cosmetic and unless it really bothers you it could be left alone.

I hope that helps a bit. Good luck!

My samsung freezer door does not close all the way causing frost buildup. I have replaced the gasket and leveled the fridge.

The hinges usually have some adjustment on them. Two person job, or put something under the bottom of the door to support it. Loosen the hinges a bit, pull the door forward at the hinge which should close the gap on the other side. Tighten down the hinges and check again.

The alarm dings. Why does the ice/water dispenser then shut off and lock?

Not sure if I'm reading this right. Is the alarm you are talking about the one that tells you the door is not closed all the way??? If that is correct, then the reason your ice/water system is not working is because the wiring system for the dispenser is fed through a switch on the freezer door which keeps the dispenser off when the door is opened. You need to correct the door problem causing the alarm to ding and that should also fix the dispenser problem. Possibly a door adjustment needed. Door top edges should be aligned and even across the top and the gap between the doors should also be the same distance top to bottom if this is a side x side.

What's causing frost across the doortop of our upright freezer?

Sometimes there is a little spacer at the hinge to guide the door. I would make sure the door is squared up properly to the inside so that the space of the seal is consistent with the non frosting side. Don't forget, that top hinge can be adjusted to angle the door for even spacing. You can even put a spacer on the bottom to raise the door if necessary. Later, remember the door should close slowly on its own.

My 2000 ford ranger pickup door latches are broken how do I open the doors. Do I have to break a window to get in?

Usually you can pry the window a little bit or pry the top corner of the door out a little.. you need a metal rod.. preferably 1/4" diameter. long enough to reach across cab to catch oposit door handle and open the door. If the truck has electric door locks. you can sometime just reach down with your rod or even a coat hanger and push the unlock button.. another is a "slimjim"tool i'm not sure if it will work on a 2000 model.. what ever you do try not to break anything or tear the seal of the door. I have done this many times for people that have left their keys in car.

How do I open the rear tailgate on my 2002 Chevy tracker? I suspect a rod is broken that operates the handle as there is only free play when you pull up on the latch. Vehicle has a plastic trunk in it and...

same problem with mine, took us awhile but we got it. you need to fold down the back seat, snap the fake truck piece on either side, pop off the door skin, starting under the convertible top bar that runs across the door, and there it is. we managed to pop off the fake trunk thingy without breaking it, it hooks on either side but you can still use it after-wards even if you do break it. good luck

How did door work when you opened manually. OK? Did you mount door opener at right height. Reinforce top of door with mending plates. Do not understand your description that you are pulling the wood frame across the top of door.
