Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The door handle is loose on my Kenmore side by side refrigerator. I want to tighten it but the trim covers the screw tops and the trim piece does not appear to "pop off". How do I get to the screws to tighten them?

Just installed new gasket on older model kenmore refridgerator. The old gasket, though damaged, seemed to seel evenly on all 4 sides. After installing the new gasket, I am not getting a good seal (approx 1/8" - 1/4" gap) on the bottom left corner, opposite of the hinges. Did I torque the door when I reinstalled/tighted the gasket screws. Should I loosen the screws, shut the door, and allow it to find it's own "right place" and then re-tighten? Suggestions welcomed!

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS6R5ESBF that is 3 years old but did not get installed until 4 months ago. The freezer appears to be working fine but the refrigerator side is getting warmer by the day.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side Model 59502990. The freezer works great, but the refrigerator won't get very cold at all (maybe 55 if we are lucky). It appears that no air is getting through the vents at the top of the refrigerator in the back.

The refrigerator portion gets too cold, even after setting the temp range on the fridge down to it'sa lowest setting. Also, performance on the freezer for making ice is less than stellar. Clearly seems like the damper is malfunctioning. Can't get the diagnostics on the panel to run, only diagnostics I have are for the Monogram side by side. Also, the cold damper appears to be behind a plastic duct work assembly at the top rear of the fridge, and it is not evident how to remove that duct work

My 6 yr old Frigidaire FRS23LH5DSR refrigerator has started buzzing. When it does this it appears to go on defrost. But it gets too warm. The refrigerator side isn't too bad but the freezer side gets too warm. All my frozen food thaws out, ice cubes melt. After several hours the buzzing stops and the refrigerator starts working fine again. Freezer freezes fine after that. But, maybe a week later, it starts all over again. Buzzing sound comes from low in the back. Thanks, Roger
