try to adjust hinges and check the door gaskets for pinching. Also I have seen that if the fridge is slightly pitched forward and not slightly towards the back gravity sometimes this causes the problem you describe.

SOURCE: my ed25pqxfwo2 fridge door seems slightly lower

You got a worn bushing you could try and make one out of PVC. May just be a loose hinge.

SOURCE: top freezer door does not close tight

Sounds like the top hinge is loose. If the hinge has a cover, remove it then hold the door in the correct position and tighen the hinge screws.

How do I realign the fridge door with a top mount freezer


The top to bottom alignment is done by moving the hinges up/down. On many models there may also be plastic spacers on the hinge pins you can use to adjust the height.The closing of the door so it shuts properly and is flush on all 4 sides is done by adjusting the screws that hold the door gasket in place. If you've never done it before it can be a real pain to get it right. Make small adjustments to the screws and if need be grab the door at the center top and center bottom and give it a small tug in opposite directions to get it straight, if you have to. To test if its closing properly, look at the edge of the gasket all around it should be the same distance from the body of the fridge, use a mirror to see the bottom. To test if its sealing properly use a dollar bill. Close the bill in between the gasket and the door in areas all around the door, When you pull on the bill you should feel resistance, if the bill is not held in or pulls out easily the gasket is not sealing properly at that location, you need to adjust the screws to get it aligned better.

Fridge door squeaks, freezer door bumps


Slacken the three screws, align the door and tighten the screws up again. Try not to lean on the door when it's open.

My side by side fridge door does not close by itself when released


It is likely that your fridge is tilted left or right, and possibly forward at the same time. Most refrigerator doors will self-close if the fridge is slightly tilted both back and to the handle. The fridge is raised or lowered by adjusting the front feet or rollers.

The problem you'll encounter with a side-by-side fridge is that if you adjust for the right-hand door to self-close, there's a good chance that the left-hand door will want to stay or fully open; if you don't check it while making the adjustments. It can take a little extra time to make sure the adjustments make the front both perfectly level left to right, AND slightly higher in the front than the back.

Please rate this reply if you found it helpful - good luck!

Freezer door opens easily


The freezer door has a rubber gasket fitted with magnet beading. In case the gasket is torn or the magnet strip is missing due to continuous use the door does not close. Just replace the gasket and you will see that the door does not open unless you physically open it.

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.

On my GE Profile side by side the Fridge side the door will close and then pop open. The door has been making a clicking sound when opened. When it pops open it does not close again.


This can happen if the door gasket is not seating properly. If it is deformed you can correct this by pouring boiling water along the deformed area, then closing the door and keeping it closed while the gasket cools and sets. Please check first that it has been correctly installed, there are screws and a bracket behind the gasket. Another problem could be the alignment of the door. It is possible to adjust alignment on the hinges. One other thing is to raise the front "feet" so that the fridge slightly leans backwards.

Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed


This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.

Doors not sucking closed


This is not a fault but it is a design problem that cannot be resolved, the problem occurs because between the fridge and the freezer there is an air duct to allow the freezer air to be blown into the fridge however when you close the fridge door this forces the air back into the fridge, the result is that it is forced into the air duct and pressurises the freezer or visa versa and pops the door open to allow the compressed air to escape. soory no cure to this one.
