You may have enough "play" in the adjustment to pull the door in tighter but sometimes you have to file longer slots in the screw holes. The top hinge cover comes off and there should be 3 screws there, loosen them and see if you can push the door tighter and while holding it there tighten them up. Also make sure you nylon bearings on the pivot points (usually the lower one) are all there and working OK. It is not too unusual to have them break and not notice the little plastic pieces fall out then the door sags and doesn't seal good.

What would make our maytag side by side drip water up top near the freezer side. I just noticed today that the door on frig side doesn't seem to be closing tight. Anything we can do?


not sure what is blocking your door from closing tight. there are adjustment screws on the top of the door hinges under the plastic caps that align the doors.(they are there on my maytag side by side). the water could be from some ice buildup in side the housing at the top of the inside of your fridge where the flap opens up to send cold air from the freezer to the fridge, especially if your door has not been closing properly that will ice up trying to keep the fridge cold. remove everything from your fridge, unplug it and take a blow dryer to that housing to remove any ice buildup on the flap then plug it back in. there are also diagnostic checks you can do using the temperature control buttons to test if the flap is working properly as well. they are in your owners manual.

If your refrigerator is fairly new, the seals probably are OK. More likely, the door alignment has to be adjusted.

Side by Side refrigerator will not dispense water or ice unless you push the door to the freezer in very tight. Does the door need adjusting?


I would certainly say it does sound like a door adjustment issue. Get a volunteer to help you in this simple test..
Open the freezer door, locate and press in the light switch. Have your helper press the dispenser button and see if it works.
You will most likely find that the door is not hitting the light witch enough to allow the dispenser to work.
The important thing to check is that the freezer light is shutting off when the door is closed! This could create major issues having the light acting as a heater in the freezer.
If you find the door sitting low, check the spacers at the bottom of the door to be sure they are in tact and the alignment of the door in relation to the fridge door.
The top hinge is usually adjustable left to right to even up the spacing, but if your spacers are worn at the bottom you will need to get some new ones.
Good luck!!

The refrigerator door side does not shut tightly. The gasket seems to be ok and we leveled the unit. Still not shutting tightly like the freezer side which seems to have a magnetic pull to assist close....


Check bottom hinge cam riser located on bottom hinge the pin that goes inside the door it's plastic it's a 2 piece part 1 part goes over hinge pin and the other goes inside door hole. They get worn and break. If you replace this make sure you get both parts until you do try adj. top door hing to get the door tighter.

Refridgerator door sags


Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
Good Luck!
