Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Door seal comes loose, shut the freezer door and the fridge door opens. What is a possible problem?


Answers :

Most likely the seal is worn, however have you wiped all the build up of any mold and debris from the seal and frige frame that seal closes to?
Sometimes just a good cleaning with hot water and mild (not harsh sprays) soap like dish soap can bring the cling back.
Otherwise its replace the seal.
If your broke you can latch the door shut by making a Velcro handle on the outside.

We have a Samsung Fridge, Model SRS 598 NSS, side by side fridge and freezer. The fridge started making a loud noise when the door was opened as if the fan was coming to a halt. We had someone come out and he said it could possibly be the fan motor or a loose connection. So he defrosted the bottom of the fridge as it had frozen up, said there was a loose connection, fixed that and said it should be fine. That was 2 days ago and $300.00 later. Now it is making the same noise and the fridge i

I have a kitchenaid superba KssC4201kS02 The freezer temp is always going up way above the set temp. Yesterday it completley shut off and I had a service rep come out and he changed the fridge compressor. $463.00 later this did not fix the problem the freezer is still going up in temp. Every time you open the door the freezer temp will go up. I hit the max cool sometimes this helps. Any suggestions on what the problem is?

I have a PFSS5PJXCSS French door with bottom freezer GE Profile refrigerator. Was making an awful noise and both fridge and freezer were warm. I opened back panel of freezer to find ice everywhere, defrosted with hair dryer, then realized the damper kept shutting on fridge. I unplugged damper and opened it. Actual temp in the fridge now is around 47, but my digital temp gauge on the door says it's 61. So, that's one problem, but won't get colder than 47 either.


Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replac ...

Hotpoint CSX22BC Fridge leaking water from the freezer door. Water isn't coming from inside the freezer - its coming from the door itself. If you open the door you can see drops of water coming from the hinge and also the seal that is on the corner of the door. The ice dispenser in the door seems to have gotten frozen up and won't dispense ice - but it has been that way for years.

Hi. I have an Electrolux EI27BS16JS french-door fridge. The ice bin can overfill, dropping cubes behind the lower basket, preventing full closure. Recently, while I was away on vacation, it seems one of the kids or the sitter had this problem, and forced the freezer closed. But it would not fully seal; the left side was open by several millimeters. After removing the food, and the baskets, I was fiddling and wrestling, and a part popped loose. At the back of each drawer slider is a cogged wh

Our KENMORE Top Mount Refrigerator Model 68202891, Type C22TFA96, Serial no. EJ2921566 has a warm spot on the horizontal separation of fridge/freezer.. I noticed the heat by opening the fridge door as the upper rubber seals or by opening the freezer door the lower rubber seal is warm. Is this a normal condition and what is behind this separation. A friend told me, that we might have running problems with the refrigerator/freezer in the future. Thank you for any advice Fredi Morel, Albuquer

We have had a repairman come in 2 times now and the problem still seems unresolved. The freezer wan't defrosting so the fridge was not cold enough(mid 50s temperature on a laser thermometer. First visit the connection between the freezer and the fridge was blocked with ice (he claimed we must have left the door open). This last visit the whole back of the freezer was frozen over. This time he replaced the defrost board. The fridge is not cooling down.

I have a sub-zero fridge/freezer model #550. I inherited this unit when I recently purchased my home. The problem I have is that water dripds in the freezer area on the right hand side opposite from the ice maker. If I defrost the freezer and let it sit with the power off and the door open for about 5 hours the problem is solved for about a month. Then it starts to leak again. I have used silicone to seal the edge wher it comes in bu only puts a bandaid on the problem. Any suggestions.

I have an older Amana Top Freezer unit.(About 12 yrs old. It seems to cool well, still. The freezer still works great. My problem is that I'm getting a huge amount of condensation on the top of the inside of the fridge. Enough to short one of the lights. The back wall is getting ice on it, and of course the drawers at the bottom are getting full of water from the condensate. The gasket seems to seal but needs a little "extra push" to shut the door. Will replacing the gasket solve the problem, or
