Hello,
Check to be sure the frig is sitting level. You should have leveling adjustment on each side below the doors and behind the grille. Also, on the bottom door hinge (usually fridge side) should be an adjustment to raise or lower the door to align the doors. After that if you simply have a deformed seal you can try carefully heating the seal with a hair dryer to soften it and should smooth out the wrinkles. Be careful not to over heat the seal. Good Luck

The freezer door opens if the refrigerator door is closed hard


this is quite normal on a lot of fridges ! if it isnt closing again by its self you need to re-level the fridge and have it very slightly backwards . alternatively the fridge is not level side to side !. open the main door a third to halfway open and let it go, it should close under its own weight, if not adjust up on the hinged side leg or down on the opposite side , if the front legs are not not adjustable pull it out and adjust the back legs , a quick fix, is to chock up the front leg and all will be ok ,regards terry ps, clean the seals and the fridge where the seals make contact the seals probably do not need replacing unless the fridge is very very old. a lot of people replace seals when its not needed. regs terry

The refridgerator door is not sealing properly and the magnetic seal between the refrig door and the freexer door is hot.


Heat the seals with a hair dryer and then pull it tight - strap it tightly shut - you can also use some super glue to keep it in place while it dries.

The freezer is freezing but the refrigerator is not getting cold why?


check the damper door vent located between the refrige and freezer for being iced up and stuck shut,if cold air from freezer can't get past thid door the refrige will warm up,if this isnt the problem,adjust the refrige temp control and watch and see if this makes this door open and close as you adjust the temp of the refrige compartment

Older model fridge freezes on the refrig. side


check the damper door and see if its iced up this is between the refrige and freezer compartments and lets cold into refrige from freezer,if it ices up in the open condition the refrige control cant change the temp,defrost the door and then see if the control moves the door,if so also check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good so as not to let warm air in that can condense and freeze things like the damper door

My refrig door wont seal tight can you buy


if you are having frost buil up on the model and it appears to be a freezer the seal may not be bad but you can not buy new magnets.the seal comes as one piece.you can do it your self.but try sealing the air flow vents in the bottom of the door with tape or silicone.the the diffuse plate in the back if it has slotted holes in it they can be covered with some aluminum tape.if you change the door seal the insultaion in the door panel should be change as well it more than likely has some ice build up in there

Maytag side by side fridge door vacuum lock


This is actually not a bad situation, it is a good thing that the vacuum is tight. it provides a greater level of freshness when keeping the contents cool of frozen. you can ease the tension by applying a gel solution or 3 in 1 oil but, i wouldn't recommend this.

This tight seal will save you on the electric bill as well. keeps the fridge from cycling to much.


A good tight seal is a good thing not a bad thing.

Temperature 94 in refrig. normal in freezer


Check to see if refrigerator door is lower than freezer door. If so remove toe panel, (bottom front). Under refrigerator door hinge at bottom right is adjuster for door. Adjust upward so door is even. On some models when door is too low it causes light to stay on some times, raising ref. temps.
