Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
The refrigerator side door of this model is not closing properly, causing it to fill with ice and persperation. Can't figure out why.
I have a GE Profile Stainless Steel side by side. I also noticed that the refrigerator side door was not sealing like it had previously. There was no "suction" when opening. I started inspecting the gasket around the door to see if this needed replaced, as I had read that may be the problem from this forum. My particular model has the grill / vent at the bottom of the door, in the front, which just pops off. I found that down by the grill my model has magnets there that match up with magnets on the bottom of the doors. I inspected this and found a foreign object had attached itself to this magnet. I removed this object and waaahlaaah the door now has suction! I was relieved to find that I didn't need to replace the gasket. Worth a try. Hope this helps.

there is no suction system. flush your defrost drain tube with boiling water and a turkey baster. should get some pretty nasty sludge out and sound will go away.

You can usually take off the top cover of the upper hinges, loosen the hinges with a 5/16 socket and move the door around that way. If this doesn't work then the door may need to be removed and have new door cams installed on the bottom hinges.
Another way to make the door shut better is to lower the front wheels or legs so that it will tilt back slightly.
Hopefully this helps.

Hi, No the door is not adjustable like you might think Since it is smaller than the other door any alignment problem is really visible. First do check the bracket to make sure you didn't lose a screw and that the brackets are solid and don't move. The problem is the level of either the refrigerator or the floor. If you have a 3 ft bubble level put in on the top of the refrigerator along the front, NOT on the door. There are feet on the bottom front corners of the refrigerator, you may have to remove the plastic grill to access them but depending on the model and age of your refrigerator it should be attached with clips. The feet screw in and out but with weight they won't move easily so you may have to jack the front a little, remove some stuff or try a crescent wrench. Once the front is level check the front to back, the refrigerator needs to tilt slightly to the rear so the door when partially open will close by itself. Again you didn't give a model so on some the rear feet are not adjustable and some are. I suspect you may have adjustable and the box is not squared up. If after adjusting the front and the entire refrigerator tilts like an uneven table leg then you have to adjust the feet likewise. Use your level diagonally across the top both directions, it should be exactly the same. If you have non adjustable and they are uneven it is the floor and you have to use shims under the low foot. Good Luck!

If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door...
If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.

Lift up the gasket and look for screws securing the gasket to the door.
Loosen all of these screws a few turns and twist the door in the direction needed to seal.
Hold the door in this position as you tighten the screws.
This can be tricky and sometimes requires multiple efforts.
