Re: Door not closing properly.
Take door off and pack bottom hinge with washers. make sure hingebrackets on cabinet are tight.
however, door hanging a bit should not really affect sealing. if seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently

your door motor should switch off the door sensor once it is fully closed either to door has not been set up correctly so the sensor has not been deactivated when fully closed or the door sensor has been wired up to the open switch connector in the motor. so it thinks the open switch has been activated by key or keypad when the seal sensor is pressed.
disconnecting the seal sensor will mean if anything gets in the way of the door when it is closing it will not stop so there is a danger of injury or damage to the door. i would check that the seal sensor is wired up properly or get a door specialist to check your motor is not defective.
Locate the limit switch on overhead rail. This will be little piece of metal that hangs down and has 2 wires attached. No risk of shock. Loosen the screw holding limit switch and slide bit more toward garage door opening to adjust final door position.
This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.
latch has probably broke internally if you can slam door and dosent close replace latch maybe 15 dollars from a scrap yard and takes about 25 min max tools needed star screw driver and flat blade to take door panel off
There should be a light switch inside each compartment, depress them with the door open one at a time, locate the bad switch and disconnect it. You can remove the bulbs too. Most of the problems with bottom freezer are the door, they seem to not get closed properly and they get heavily frosted, once frosted they seem not to close correctly and cause the lights to remain on.
I would look for the problem with the door closing or the door switch failing.
If it is placing a dimple in the gasket, this may be the culprit.
Try taping the switch off with duct tape and closing the door to see if it
seals properly.Also make sure you have all food items clear. this is another
factor in doors not closing, especially freezers.
It appears that one of the door operated switches is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light coming on and the beeping noise is alerting that the vehicle has a door not closed properly when the vehicle is in motion.
It could mean the door catch is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact.
slightly loosen the bolts on the hinges enough to scoot the door into the correct position and it will stay until you tighten the bolts on the hinges. It may take a couple of tries but that is the way to do it until the door seals and closes properly =)
The door closing can be a couple things. The door can be sagging. This can be fixed at the hinge pins. It can be overloaded with heavy things, causing the bottom to twist outward, this can be fixed by not storing as much weight in the door. And it could be the door seal. Replacement is required, if it doesn't have the elasticity that it should. I would try the first two things first, the door seals are not cheap. When it is fully aligned, close the door on a dollar bill. It should have a little resistance when pulling it out The more, the better.
The freezer light could just be a stuck switch in the door. Condensation can get in it and freeze when the door shuts, holding the switch in the off position.
Does it seem to hang low or does it actually hang low? Readjust
it. There is a switch that may hang high when the door closes.
You just have look at what does what and what ain' doing what it is
supposed to. first.
