Question about GE GSS25JFPCC / GSS25JFPWW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Door doesn't close automatically.

The fridge door doesn't close . It seems like the weight of the door is off.  I have to give it an extra push to close it . Don't know if there are springs in the door that help it or the pins need to be lubricated.

    Similar problem. I can 'feel' the resistance in closing the door. If I hold the handle and lift as I close the door it closes properly. Those cam/hinges are nothing like mine. It's like a hole in the top and bottom of the door with rods going into them.

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.door doesn't close automatically. - 2fe6866.jpg

Whirlpool double door fridge. Door wont stay closed. Have to push extra hard to keep it closed


Take out the shelves and drawers. check the rear is clear of ice before putting them back in place, and ensure they are not stopping the door closing. Next check the top and bottom of the door. Is it hitting the frame when closing? If so, straighten it up by tapping the hinge side of the door to make it square to the frame.

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!

Maytag fridge right door won't stay closed


it may be necessary to reset the hinge adjustment to move the door further across the opening giving the magnets a better area to hold on to . there is a slight amount of adjustment in the mounting points of the hinges. You may have to replace the door gaskets as they become hard over time and the magnets cannot work properly in the hard plastic

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

Doors not closing all the way


check level from back to front on fridge if good than check the amount of food that is stored on the door if u have a lot of bulk, weighty stuff they may be acting as a counter balance on the door when u close the left side the air that is trapped usually disperses into the unit and is not forceful enough to push open the door but if their is a lot of additional weight on door it makes the door easier to open and swing on hinge

Whirlpool gd5thgxks01 door does not auto close


You need to level the refrigerator slightly backwards so the weight of the door closes it automatically. The front legs are adjustable, so just turn them until the door closes on its own.

Doors don't swing shut automatically


The GE side by side refrigerator has 2 cams on the bottom hinge that helps shut the door. If the cam wears out then the door will not close properly. One of the cams is riveted to the hinge assembly and an extra cam is shipped with it. The cam assemblies can easily be replaced by using the information on the Partselect.com website that refers to the GE TFX22R refrigerator.

Re-level your unit and tilt it just a little toward the back. When you close the refrigerator door you in effect cause a compression affect which pushes the freezer door momentarily open. If it is leveled so that it is tilted toward the back the door would re-close under its own weight.
