How do I realign the fridge door with a top mount freezer


The top to bottom alignment is done by moving the hinges up/down. On many models there may also be plastic spacers on the hinge pins you can use to adjust the height.The closing of the door so it shuts properly and is flush on all 4 sides is done by adjusting the screws that hold the door gasket in place. If you've never done it before it can be a real pain to get it right. Make small adjustments to the screws and if need be grab the door at the center top and center bottom and give it a small tug in opposite directions to get it straight, if you have to. To test if its closing properly, look at the edge of the gasket all around it should be the same distance from the body of the fridge, use a mirror to see the bottom. To test if its sealing properly use a dollar bill. Close the bill in between the gasket and the door in areas all around the door, When you pull on the bill you should feel resistance, if the bill is not held in or pulls out easily the gasket is not sealing properly at that location, you need to adjust the screws to get it aligned better.

How do I raise the level of my refrigerator door to be even with freezer door?


Thank you for your inquiry, Leland Dodd!

I see that you are having difficulty in raising the level on your Frigidaire refrigerator, FGHC2331PF. I have reviewed your manual and there are two types of adjustment for either front rollers or lower hinge. If you are having issues with adjusting the doors or leveling your refrigerator I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly level your refrigerator. Best of luck! -Matt

The left side door has dropped and the piece that closes the gap between the two doors will not operate properly. It leaves the gap open and the refrigerator looses coolness. Need to know how to realign...


Check the lower hinge of that door for a broken closer cam. The upper hinge is adjustable and adjusting the corners in the front will shift the cabinet to align the door also.

Adjustment of the fresh food door.


Normal for freezer door to be slightly higher, The upper hinges can be adjusted to make minor changes and raising the front roller under the rlower door will(or lower the higher side) help align them. It is a trial and error adjustment that takes time to get the best compromise of door alignment to cabinet setting.

The fridge is unlevel front to back. The front is relatively too high. How do I level the beast?


The front should be a "little" higher than the back, in order that the doors will close softly when pushed past a certain point, and to assist in sealing the door to the cabinet. There is a levelling mechanism on the front rollers, turning a screw or bolt head clockwise will raise the rollers and counterclockwise will lower the rollers. If no rollers, then post type feet that screw in and out for height. Most have rollers in front and these can be adjusted with the screw or bolt that you can see in the front behind the lower cabinet cover. It should lift and pull straight out to remove, and you will then see the adjustment bolts or screws. You should be about half a bubble out of true level for the doors to seal well and close softly.

Side by side doors uneven at top


Hi Carol,

Interestingly enough, I answered a similar question just the other day. Maybe there's an outbreak of lazy factory technicians who "forget" to tighten the hinge brackets? Hmmmm. Makes on wonder...

Anyway, it's easy... The door alignment adjustment is done at the top hinge. Pull up a step-stool, then remove the hinge cover. Under there you'll see three screws, I think they're 5/16". Loosen these (since your door has dropped, they're probably already loose), then lift up on the door handle to align it with the other door... while keeping the door aligned, tighten the hinge screws (and put alot of torque on 'em to keep 'em from loosening in the future). Now just replace the hinge cover and your done!
