If there is one common issue with appliances, it is fridge doors not closing properly. The seal around your fridge door is what keeps the cold in. If the door stays open, this seal is broken and warm air will creep in and slowly spoil your food. Your fridge then goes into overdrive to try to keep temperatures down, making it noisy and raising the temperature even further. The overall result? Warm food and a loud, whirring appliance.
If you are having issues with your fridge door staying shut, don’t worry. The technicians at Express Repair GTA are here to offer expert advice and repairs on all refrigerator models so that your food stays fresh.
Broken rubber seals around fridge doors can prevent the doors from closing properly. Start by checking that the gasket is attached to your refrigerator and that it is smooth all the way around. Any bumps or twists could be the issue. Also, try cleaning your gasket with warm soapy water, being sure to clean inside the folds.
If this doesn’t work, your gasket may have become de-magnetized. The magnetization is what helps hold the fridge door shut. If this is the issue, you will either need to re-magnetize your gasket or look at purchasing a new one.
Another common issue that can result in fridge doors not closing properly is if your refrigerator is unlevel. To test this, use a spirit level. If your fridge is on a slant, you’ll need to adjust the feet of your refrigerator to fix the problem.
To expose the feet, pull out the grill from the base of your fridge. The feet can then be adjusted using pliers. Depending on the model, your fridge may have leveling screws on the front feet. To adjust these you’ll need to use a screwdriver to turn the screws clockwise or anticlockwise to lift and lower the fridge as needed.
