Question about LG LFC25760 French Door Refrigerator

# Refrigerator slides on floor causing door to bind

Our lg is installed in a very tight fiting space with a cabinet on one side and a wall on the other side. the problem is the frig slides back on the laminate wood floor causing the right hand door to bind on the wall. Is there an easy way to keep the frig from moving backward in the space? It has to be far enough out so the door hinges clear the wall. About once a week we have to wrestle with this frig to pull it out to clear the edge of the wall.

There should be some adjustable feet in the front that you can tighten down so that the wheels get pushed off the floor. causing the fridge not to move. if that is already tightened down another idea is to find out the distance from the back wall and get a piece of wood that length and just set it back to prevent the fridge from moving back. hope that helps

### When you measure a refrigerator for height, do you measure from the floor to the top or do you measure from the base of the refrigerator to the top..I am limited bc of a cabinet

On space: Measure from floor to the cabinet at its lowest part, usually the front face frame of cabinet is lower than bottom of cabinet. Ideally you want a little space between fridge and cabinet. Knowing the height of space, measure refrigerators that are less than that measurement when you measure them from floor to top of fridge including hinge if it is higher than top.

### Water is sitting on top of freezer compartment and leaking out on floor

Make sure that your drawer is aligned properly and that there is no ice build up anywhere. Mine built up some ice in the very back and side somehow, and caused the door not to close tightly which lead to a similar problem. Removing the ice build up cured it.

### Water runs out the frezzer side when the door is closed onto the household floor.

Look underneath the fridge and check the drain pan it's probably full. Also check your hoses when you under there. You have a line running from the wall underneath the fridge and up to the water supply system. Check for any lines that might be leaking or have come loose and causing the problem.

### 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.

### New deadbolt mechanism very hard to turn.

The deadbolt itself is binding in the door or the door jamb
you will ned to take the pressure ofF the turning mechanism by either readjusting the strike plate(area where deadbolt goes into door jamb(wall side) OR MECHANISM IN THE DOOR

FIX

First determine if the problem in the door or when the door is closed and is binding into the wall side
FIX FOR BIND WHEN DOOR IS IN CLOSED POSITION
If it binds only when door is closed you will need to adjust the strike plate up or down at the door jamb which is easy to fix

1 open door and turn lock in locked position close door up against the door jamb and mark with a pencil where bolt hits jamb

2 open door extend the marks to see where it lines up in relation to the strike plate remove strike plate and move so that the opening of strike plate is between two pencil lines
3 insert some wooden match sticks in old scres holes( jamb them in with head of hammer
4 screw strike plate in positon
5 close door and check lock
Note:
You may have to use a chisel , flat bladed screw driver or kinife to cut some of th soe out to allow bolt to slide into jamb (if it bareley drags you can take a metal file and file it also pt some wd 40 on bolt

FIX FOR PROBLEM WITH MOVEMENT IN DOOR
open the door from the inside turn the bolt in lock and unlock position if it moves hard you will need to take a phillips head screw driver and remove the plate that covers the bolt( on the side of the door where bolt slides out of door)

After you remove the plate turn the lock in lock/ unlock position

if it is still tight loosten the two screws at the deadbolt from the inside of the door do not remove completely
bolt should not be in a bind and should move freely

If it is tight at this point you wil ned to remove the assembly(continue taking 2 screws out) once you have the assembly out you will need to pull the bolt ot of the side of the door

if the dead bolt is real tight you will need to enlarge the hole it goes in by using a round rasp or file
and check the ock manually and with a key

Good luck
