    you didn't give me a solution...there are screwed in stops that keep the door from opening all the way.
    It's a limiter of sorts. where do i get the part to adjust the door opening. there are threads for some part to screw into which would limit the opening. one was bent or broken on the floor when I discovered this.

Hi

Yes, the door should have a door stop on it under the hinge. It screws to the door then hits the hinge when it gets to about 160-170 degrees stopping from opening more.Somtimes if a door is replaced this part is left off or yours maybe damaged. However most refrigerators do not have anything to prevent the door from opening all the way. To minimize this , adjust the front leveling legs up enough so the door won't stay open by itself. The refrigerator doesn't have to be level, it just should not rock. Most are adjusted this way to let the door shut itself. This should help. If this doesn't work make a strap with small chain or seat belt type material. Attach from the bottom of the door. Make it just long enough to not let the door open past 90 degrees.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

No door adjuster on my kitchen aid superba o move the door up and down.


Yes, there is no adjuster so you will (a)just have to be clever and use an old carpenter's trick. To raise the door you simply place washers of different thicknesses over the hole where the bottom pin of the door goes in.

They actually make a guard that acts as a height shim. You do need to remove the door to install it though. Try looking at appliance411 they usually have some insight into out of the ordinary parts. Hope this helps. Good luck.
