SOURCE: Light stays on when door is closed

The GE GSL22JFPH refrigerator door gets lower over time. When it gets low enough the light stays on when the door closes. There is a vertical bolt along the hinge line. Push down the hinged plastic "hinge cover" under the door right on the hinge line and you can get a wrench on the bolt to raise the door. I have to do this every 6 months/

SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

SOURCE: Refrigerator door won't stay closed

Pull on the gaskets some times they are broken and will take up moore room that when correctly aligned. especially on the side of the door where the hinges are. Inspect thehinges also see of brackets are loose. If the gasket is bunched up on the hinge side try duct taping them down and retry the door. If this corrects problem replace door gaskets. If a plastic grommet is missing in the door it will nolt align correctly and you will be able to pick up on the outer corner of the door and it will wobel and be loose on the hinge. ReplACE THE GROMETS and retest and align as nessary.

The refrigerator door does not stay closed after being shut by users!!


Hi,


here's a quick solution to this problem.
Tilt the fridge backward a little so gravity pulls the door inward.

Hope this helps,
levibit

please rate if it does.

Note: This is just a temporary fix. It could be magnetic seal related. Try cleaning the edges with a damp rag so the lip seals in place.

I have a whirlpool the refrigerator door will not stay close.


It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.

New refrigerator doors form vacuum


It's so new I would contact the manufacturer/company and ask them if this is a known issue or not? If it is a known issue then is there a fix for it? It's still under manufactures warranty right, so if there is a fix for this they should be able to fix it for free.

Last check on Whirlpool icemaker


No, when you open the freezer door the right side light will flash 2 times with a pause repeatedly. Then when you hold the left side flapper down it will stay lit. In other words, it will be on steady. You do not have to have the door switch closed. Catriver.
