Question and Answers

Q:

How do I fix a refrigerator door that rubs?

A:

That black dust does sound like some kind of shaving within that hinge. The bottom hinge may take most of the weight of the door. But if you replace one hinge, you might replace both. Visit Sears Parts Direct.com if you haven't already done so. It's an effective site for locating parts and getting information. You will be hearing from an expert within the next two business days. Have a pleasant morning.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the fridge door. There is a washer # 215003200 that fits under the door that will raise it. It has apparently deteriorated and could be causing the dust but there is also a bearing # 5303289320 that could be the problem. Both of these parts are available at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-FRS26ZGHW2/1428/0165000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=FRS26ZGHW2&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . Also leveling the cabinet will help to align the doors properly. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your help. That sounds like it might be the problem but I have a question. Does the bearing go into the bottom or top of the door? If the bottom, what is the plastic part at the top of the door that is broken. It has a little arm on the top that is broken off.The metal hinge fits into a hole in the door and the plastic part is the insert in the door.It doesn't look like the picture of the bearing - no arm. Is the part important and should it be replaced at the same time? I don't want to have to keep taking the door down to replace one part at a time. The noise sounds like it is coming from the upper hinge but that might be because that is the one I'm closer to. All of this is on the refrigerator side, not the freezer side. I ' m assuming that they are the same but just in case. Thank you for any suggestions you may have.

Sherry, the bearing listed will fit into the bottom of the door. Now, this latest information indicates a problem with the top hinge, which also has the closer built into it. I would recommend replacing the top hinge # 218215247 in addition and it will probably stop the noise. Be careful, this is a spring loaded hinge. I hope this will help you.

I felt like something was going on with the top hinge, and since it wont close unless you manually close it all the way, that makes sense. Your comment about being careful the hinge is spring loaded made me think I needed to find out how difficult this job will be. I think I can handle the washer and the bearing because they sound like simple fixes. I'm assuming the bearing fits into a hole in the bottom of the door. Could you please explain in a little more detail what is involved in replacing the top hinge. I am trying to decide whether to try to fix it myself or maybe I should call in a repair person. Again thank you for your help in solving this problem.

Sherry, it's really not difficult but can be a little tricky. The hinge will fit back down in the door slot. When the hinge is positioned in the slot, and then pulled back, to line up with the screw holes in the top of the cabinet, it should put pressure on the door to close. I hope this will help you.

Q:

refrigerator will not defrost

A:

When an appliance goes out we usually see money going out the window, either in repair cost, or replacement. Managemylife.com can take the mystery out of the repair and an expert can tell you if its time for a replacement if you ask him. I did some research for you at this web page and found an expert answer to a similar question which may shed some light on the problem. If you want to have a qualified technician to assist you I have attached the link to searshomeservices.com. I hope this information will be useful until your expert can respond.

The link for a previous answer that James R. provided in the first response gives the normal troubleshooting for this problem on a similar model of refrigerator.

This model of refrigerator has the defrost timer located in the bottom left front corner. It is shown as Key 23 in the first image below. I recommend that you manually advance the timer with the compressor running. Advance the timer until the compressor shuts off. At that point, the circuit traced in red in the second image should be energized so that the defrost heater is on. The defrost heater is shown in the third image. If the defrost heater works and properly defrosts the evaporator, then your likely failure is the timer since it is probably not advancing properly. You could also have a wiring failure that would prevent the timer from advancing.

If the heater does not work in the defrost mode, then you could have a bad timer (failed contact), a wiring failure, an open defrost thermostat (shown in the 4th image) or a bad defrost heater. Unplug the refrigerator and check the wiring. Examine the heater for damage. Measure the resistance through the defrost thermostat as described in the 4th image.

If you find a failed component, you can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

You seem to be fairly advanced in technical knowledge since you have been manually defrosting the evaporator. This information should help you determine the cause of your defrost problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Hello Bill. I based my answer on the model number FRS26ZGHW2 that was provided. I recommend that you recheck that model number if that refrigerator does not have a defrost timer as shown in that parts diagram for that model that is shown in the image I provided in the above response. For that model FRS26ZGHW2, the defrost heater is part 218169802. I provided a picture of that part in the image below along with a direct link for that defrost heater. If you have a different model, then you may need a different heater. That heater can normally be replaced without having to replace the entire evaporator. If you do need to replace the entire evaporator in your refrigerator then a service technician will need to complete that type of repair since it would involve the recovery and recharging of the sealed refrigerant system. Reply with an updated model number and more details if you need more help with this problem.

Hello Bill. Thanks for providing that model number on this thread. You may have supplied us with that model number on a different thread that I did not see. That evaporator heater on your model RB195BSBB/XAA is a part of the evaporator assembly and does not come separately. The evaporator will need to be replaced to fix that type of problem. A service technician will need to perform that type of repair since it will involve the recovery and recharge of the refrigerant system. You can schedule service using the link that I provided below this response. If you need more help, let us know.
