I’m Having Issues with My Refrigerator Doors

It’s not too uncommon to have small issues with a refrigerator door or the levelness of your fridge in general. If this all of a sudden is happening to you, don’t panic, below are a couple of troubleshooting tips and pointers to try before calling in the experts.

My Fridge Doors are Difficult to Open

  • Your refrigerator gaskets are probably just gunked up. Simply clean your fridge gaskets with warm water and mild soap. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth.

My Fridge Door Won’t Shut All the Way*

  • *How do you know if your doors haven’t shut all the way?
    • Check out your fresh food section in the refrigerator. If it’s all wet, most likely, your refrigerator door wasn’t shut properly.
    • If there’s frost in your freezer, specifically on the sides or the top of your freezer, your door isn’t shutting correctly.
  • Move your food packages back and out of the way.
  • Double check that both your drawers and your shelves are in their proper positions.
  • If this is a new refrigerator, make sure that all of the packaging materials have been removed.

  • Your doors need to be realigned or your refrigerator needs to be leveled. Refer to your Use and Care Guide.
