It can be upsetting to make repairs that do not fix the issue. The model number provided is a Frigidaire dishwasher number. Your description and question both detail a refrigerator. I would recommend checking the model number on the refrigerator and replying with that information for more help.

The reason the refrigerator door may not be closing, is because of the gasket or the inner door panel needs to be adjusted. I understand you applied sealant to the gasket. Was the gasket also replaced? Is there any damage to the gasket? When the door gasket is replaced, the screws holding the inner panel have to be loosened, to get the gasket off. The inner panel is what holds the door in the proper position. What happens a lot of times is the door will bow when the panel is loosened and as a result it won't close properly. Sometimes the door can just be popped back in place but other times the screws have to be loosened again and then pop the door back in place.

Check the leveling of the refrigerator. Make sure that the refrigerator is level from side to side. It should have about a half of a bubble of back tilt from front to back so that the doors will swing gently shut on their own.

If the refrigerator is level, you may need to adjust the bottom hinge.

The instructions for leveling or removing and installing the doors are in the owners manual.
