I would advise to apply a skim of vaseline to door hinge side only. Onto the ref itself from top to bottom if that does not help than i'd replace the door gasket

Left hand door not closing easily anymore. lubricate the hinge?


It could be the fridge is tilting forward.
Up turn the two front screw beside the door to make the fridge tilt backwards, or lower down the two back screw to allow the fridge to tilt backwards.

Then the door will automatically close by the weight of the door itself!

I have had this issue with my french door kitchen aid freezer drawer. I have a toddler who sometimes gets into the drawer. If it is left open just a hair, it will melt everything completely and water leaks out all over the floor.

The drain gets clogged when the door gets pushed back in for a tight seal and freezes again.

Try to focus on keeping a really tight seal every time you open and then close the freezer...its almost like you have to TRY to close it hard to ensure it is closed. Total pain, but it works. When the door is closed tight, it stays like it is supposed to .

it may be necessary to reset the hinge adjustment to move the door further across the opening giving the magnets a better area to hold on to . there is a slight amount of adjustment in the mounting points of the hinges. You may have to replace the door gaskets as they become hard over time and the magnets cannot work properly in the hard plastic

Freezer defrost all. RS2556


The most likely is that the door was not closed properly, this is very common on this model, what happens is that the door closes against the freezer contens and therefore appears closed, this allows warm air into the unit which starts to melt the ice, if this should happen again it is a good idea to completely defrost overnight with the doors open and then re start the next morning as ice often builds up behind the rear panel.
