Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Maytag Side by Side Model RSD 2200. Problem with closure of refrigerator door. Unlike the Freezer Door which closes without effort and operates as if "spring loaded" over the last few inches of travel, the refrigerator door must be pushed all the way to the full closed position. Nothing appears to be damaged or interfering with the door. can you help? Greg


Answers :

 SxS refrigerators have what are called ride-ups. One half of this assembly is riveted to the door hinge the other half is screwed to the bottom of the door. It is usually best to replace both parts at the same time. Both fridge and freezer doors have this type of a ride-up.
Remove power, remove the upper hinge cover. Remove the upper hinge screws ( if the freezer door - disconnect the water line ), lift the door off the lower hinge and lay it down on the floor. The parts can be easily replaced now. See the picture below to see what the parts look like ( freezer hinge shown in the picture )....

I have a kenmore top freezer refrigerator model 253 about 1 1/2 years old. The fridge door sticks at the bottom of the door and the bottom of the fridge inside. There are scratches on the fridge bottom from the door rubbing on it. The door must be pushed shut every time. The fridge levelers have been adjusted to allow the door to swing closed on its own but will not shut completely because the door bottom contacts the fridge inside bottom. Is there some way to adjust the door? I do not see

I have a new Dacor 36 inch counter depth french door refrigerator. We love everything about it except the operation of the right door. The door does not stay open in any postion. It either wants to immediately shut or swing all the way open. The door must be constantly held in place. The left door operates perfectly. Dacor sent people out and they claim the door operates properly. The unit is perfectly level. Has anyone heard of a similar issue? Is this common with French door models?

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. When we push the door switch we don't feel any change in air movement coming out of the vents in the back/top of the refrigerator. Does this model have a damper on the door switch?

I've got a GE side by side refrigerator that's approx.7 years old. This past weekend, I resolved the problem of not getting water out of the cold water dispenser. After replacing the two-way water solenoid valve, I realized that the downstream water line inside the freezer door upstream of the dispenser was also plugged with ice. After shutting down the refrigerator for some time and warming up the door, the water pressure was able to blow out the ice plug. I restarted the refrigerator and was a

The freezer door of our side-by-side Maytag makes a loud, metallic clunk when open about half way. It will no longer swing closed on its own and sometimes closing the refrigerator door will cause the freezer door to open slightly.

We have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer must have started defrosting today. Everything inside is soaked, the ice maker quit producing ice and the ice was melting. The blower fan is running continuously but not blowing any cold air. We did have the freezer packed pretty full but not much more than usual. It seems like the refrigerator is now starting to warm up. We have turned off the freezer side to see if it makes any difference. What else should we do?

I have a side by side model GSS25KSTA SS refrigerator that came with a house that I purchase. The ice maker works but when you push a glass into the dispenser the door never opens and the ice fills up in the freezer door and either dumps out into freezer or freezes up. I can reach up into the dispense and manually open the door, but that is neither hygienic or practical. Can I fix it.

Have a GE GSS25SGMB BS side by side refrigerator. From what I can tell, the flap on the ice & water dispenser does not close all the way. It then builds up frost on the back of door and then in the ice dispenser itself. So, no ice or water dispensing. Called a GE service center and was told I needed a solenoid and that it was an easy install. Have the part but do not know the best way to access. From the front or from the back? and how exactly without damaging any other parts????


The front dispenser panel where the selections are will pop off. Being careful use a flat blade at the bottom edge of the panel and pry softly. The control will pop out at the bottom and you will be able to pull it out and disconnect the wires going ... GE GSS25SGMBS Side by Side Refrigerator
