SOURCE: A creaking noise when the freezer is opened & then closed

In some freezers they build up excessive vacuum which pulls the plastic housing away from the internal polyurethane insulation, hence the creaking sound. You can make a vacuum breaker by attaching a small stick or similar to the bottom of the door gasket, this will break the vacuum without losing temperature.

To my knowledge there are no closure caps for your tub; you can however purchase new jets with new seals if the tub is leaking through the jets.

SOURCE: my soft close lid does not soft close any longer.

No there is no fix, these things rely on friction for the soft close. You will need to replace it.

My vitra soft close toilet seat doesn't soft close anymore?


Chances are that the friction washers that control the closure rate are worn out. Most of these are not replaceable so you will need to get a new one. Thanks

Doors creak loudly when closed and pushed from the outside. Don't when open.


This short solution may help solve your creaking problem. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly. Putting vaseline insid the hinge pins too is a good idea.
Let me know if I can assist you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The Frigidaire Professional Series Dishwasher is leaking dishwasher detergent ( during the wash ) all over my tile floor and staining my grout. It seems like the door will not shut all the way. If I push...


Hi linsley.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Is there a way to adjust the closure to close the door more?

First lets back up a little . You say it's leaking dishwasher detergent ( during the wash ). Before you do anything else take a look at the type and/or amount of soap you're useing. Have you recently made a change? I have found that the problem is in this somewhere. If you don't find a solution there then consider a local pro. Unless it's old the problem isn't the gasket and the door closure is factory set. If it's still under warranty then it might be time to make a call.

Feel free contact me again!
