How do I adjust the door on my fridge as it has sagged. I can't find any adjustment on the hinges and they are not very worn. I think my grandson was swinging on the door to pull it out of adjustment

Look on the top of the fridge. There should be a plastic cover over the top hinge mount plate, these usually just "pop" off. under it are the 3 screws that anchor the hinge , loosen adj and retighten.
Hope this helps

Refrigerator door sags and binds opposite hinge side. Can lower hinge be moved to raise sagging side?


Most likely cause is a worn cam in the hinge. After a while plastic cam wear out a causes doors to sag. Take your model number to Searspartsdirect.com and find the hinge cams and replace. Our went out a few years ago and our door did not shut. We came back 4 days later to a real smelly mess all over our kitchen thanks to these plastic cams. To prolong useful lifetime, try coating the cams with protroleum jelly. Doors should shut when you release the door when open 1 inch by themself. If they do not, the refrigerator feet need to adjusted so front is a little higher than back.

Prado 120 back door sagging


you can only do limited adjustments, First open the door and grab it by the back edge, see if it moves up and down, if it does the hinges are worn and need to be replaced. If no then open the front door and you will see the hinges of the back door, Loosen the bolts and have someone lift the back of the door slightly, Tighten then re-check. if needed keep trying until it sits right. You may also have to adjust the rear latch which is simply a matter of loosening the screws and adjusting as required.

Both the freezer and fridge doors hinge on the right, and the left hand side has sagged a little so neither neither door is sealing properly. How do I adjust the doors to raise the left side of the...


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.

Driver side door sags.


If your door sags it means the bushings in the door hinge are worn out, but there is a way to adjust it without replacing the hinges if they aren't too bad. If you open your door there are bolts that attach the door hinges to the A-Pillar, most of the time they are accessable from the outside. First get a car jack and position it under middle edge of the open door, put a small piece of wood on the jacking point to protect the door. Loosen the bolts to the hinges and raise the jack so it raises the door up. tighten the bolts on the hinges back up and open and close the door to determine if the door was raised enough to eliminate the sagging.

Door does not shut tight--bad latch???


usually the door latch will go bad when the door hinge bushings are very worn. Inspect the door hinge by holding the door a grab the outside door handle and the door shell firmly. Now lift the door up vertically and see if there is any play in the hinges. If the slightest movement is found replace the door hinge pins and bushings. your door latch may work great again If not replace that too

I have this fridge and the sagging door means that you are missing a plastic washer. you might have accidentally placed this washer on the top rather then on the bottom where it belongs.

Likely nothing to adjust.
With the door open, see if the door can be lifted up and down while looking at the hinges. If there is play, the door hinge pins/bushings are worn out, and on some vehicles, the hinges are not serviceable, and replacement will be needed. G/L
