Q:

Kitchenaid refrigerator door not flushed

A:

The refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in our home & when you have two different problems it could be frustrating. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day!

A:

Thank you for your question. Adjusting the door can be a challenge sometimes. If the top is not sealing good but the bottom is, it indicates the door has gotten bowed out of shape. Sometimes the door can be flexed back in position by pushing in on the top while keeping the bottom in place. This can be a little tricky. If the door will not flex back, then the screws under the gasket all around the door will need to be loosened but not removed. Now, close the door and flex it until it makes a good fit. Carefully open the door and retighten the screws to hold the door in place.

If the door was not making a good seal, it can allow warm air to enter the cabinet and it can cause the return air vent to freeze up. When this happens the air flow will be reduced and the fridge will not cool properly. A good check for this will be to feel the air flow and then open the freezer door. If the air flow increases, with the freezer door open, it indicates the return vent is frozen. To clear the vent, turn the unit off for 24 hours to allow it time to thaw out. I hope this will help you.
