We bought used fridge Inglis/Niagara Model ICT85000 Mfg06/93 when we close fridge door freezer door opens. When we close freeze door fridge door opens. This is a top freezer. Is there a repair


Inglis are a budget make. The cold for the fridge comes from a vent from the freezer. Don't let the door slam. You must close them gently.

Left hand door not closing easily anymore. lubricate the hinge?


It could be the fridge is tilting forward.
Up turn the two front screw beside the door to make the fridge tilt backwards, or lower down the two back screw to allow the fridge to tilt backwards.

Then the door will automatically close by the weight of the door itself!

Fridge door does not close on it's own. possibly missing spring.


There are no springs to assist refrigerator doors to close.

The fridge doors can be made to close themselves by adjusting the height of the feet of the fridge. "Pitching" the fridge slightly away from the hinge will accomplish this. If the foot on the hinge side of the fridge door is slightly higher than the foot on the handle side of the door, the door will usually want to close by itself. If the fridge is a side-by-side type and this is done, one door will close by itself and the other will want to remain open (or open fully). In this case, it's best to have the fridge as close to level as possible.

I hope this was helpful.

Suddenly our GE side-by-side fridge door doesn't shut


Check the bottom of the freezer door at the hinge to see how it is suppose to look and work, assuming the freezer door still works right. Then look at the ref. door and compare.

Sounds like something is broken or damaged. Usually there is a white tefflon washer which is beveled to allow the weight of the door to help it close. Check with an appliance parts store, you may be able to buy just the washer or the whole hinge assembly may come in a package.

Door doesn't close automatically.


it sounds like you need a new set of door cams. they should look something like this. they mount on the bottom hinge and use the weight of the door to close it.2fe6866.jpg
