Pull the door seal back and look behind it. if you see 1/4 inch screws every 6-8 inches then you can re-straighten the door.

  • take the door off of the refrigerator and remove the handles
  • lay it down on a flat surface, like a large table or hard floor (not carpet)
  • loosen (dont take out) all of those screws behind the door seal. this should relax the metal part of the door so you can twist it and make it flat against the floor. 
  • once it is completely flat on the floor on all corners then tighten all the screws, starting with the center of each side and work towards the corners.
  • when you reinstall the door make sure you line up the door correctly before tightening the hinge bolts.

Electrolux Built in freezer door not closing.


I'm suspecting the door also because of the lack of suction power. you have to check the gasket more. Frost around the door is a great indication of where warm moist air is coming into it.

Condensation inside refrigerator


check the doors to make sure that they are level and that there are no spaces in between the gasket and the body of the machine. Also check the door seals themselves. Your getting condensation because you have warm air getting in somehow and clashing with the freezer air and causing the water to form inside

Frig door does not stay closed


When you say that it will not stay closed, what exactly do you mean? That the door seal does not meet the cabinet, that there is a gap? Is the door warped? Does it appear to be out of line with the hinges on the top and bottom? Is the space around the door when shut and looking at the front pretty much equal all the way around? I mean, when shut, does it appear that there is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the cabinet showing all around the door when shut? Has someone swung or leaned or tugged on the door, or closed the door or tried to close the door and something was keeping either the top or the bottom pushed out? There are adjustments on the hinges, at the attachment points to the cabinet and to the door itself. You may be able to adjust the hinge plates in or out and up and down to make the door seal better. And the box should be about half a bubble out of level, front to back, or with a slight angle front to back, in order to help the weight of the door seal to the cabinet of the refrigerator. If the door is warped, you may be able to determine which way it is bent, out at top, out a bottom, side to side, ect. and take it off the hinges and gently attempt to straighten this bend. If you are careful, and can determine there is warping at the top or bottom, you may be able to "straighten" the door while attached to the hinges. Gentle pressure is the procedure, GENTLE, GENTLE. Don't get the BIG HAMMER out and go to banging away. Just a push up here, and a tug down there, and you may be able to cure this fairly easy. You must first determine which way the door is warped, and then move it back the other way. It should seal the gasket to the cabinet, not so much attach the door to the cabinet edges, but a firm seal that takes a tug to open. And no air gaps. Are the products inside the refrigerator "sweating". This is the drawing of warmer room air into the cabinet and condensation forming. The door needs to seal in order to keep the cold air in, and the outside air OUT. I an extreme warping, you may have to replace the door, or use bungee straps to keep it shut. which will be a pain, removing those every time you need in it. I would try and determine where it may be bent or warped, and gently bend it back the other way a little at a time till I have the seal connecting all the way around. Once there, QUIT. No more bending. When the seal connects all the way around, you are finished. Problem solved. I wish you luck and hope that you can solve this fairly easy. Remember, be Gentle. It will warp easily. And no hanging on the door!

Fridge Condensation


Check the seal of the rubber gasket, if there are improper seal of the magnet, pour hot water along it to soften the rubber. (be careful when handling hot water). When the rubber is soften, try to stretch it a little by pulling it. close the door and the magnet will keep the seal in place.

Condensation inside top near the center


Check your owners manual to see if your model has an "energy saver" switch somewhere. That switch turns on or off the heating around the doors to prevent moisture/condensation, etc. If it does, take it off the energy savings mode and put it in the other mode (energy savings means the heater is off to save a tiny bit of electricity over the years time). Also use a dollar bill and close the door on it to see if you can pull it out with the door closed, it should be a slight pull to remove it if the gasket is sealing right. Do this around the whole door a couple inches at a time and see if you have the same friction on pulling the bill out the sealed door.
