Default Whirlpool Side by Side Refrig
Model Number: ED5FHEXNS01   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The freezer door of my refrigerator is not shutting tightly as it once did. It does not have the same pull when opening as does the refrigerator door. We cleaned the gasket but it has not improved; is there r a tightening screw on the hinge or something else that we could try before calling a repairman?

Thanks

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for Whirlpool ED5FHEXNS01 REFRIGERATOR | AppliancePartsPros.com

Check the cams. Item 12 in Section 5 for the door. I cannot see the one that is on the lower hinge, it may be the same as the one on the fridge side. You would have to check with the parts people.
The door actually rides up and down on the cams so when the door is closed it is on the down side and gravity helps keep the door closed.

Check that the seal on the hinge side is closing smoothly, not grabbing and twisting.
If it is grabbing a light coating og white lithium grease or vaseline should eliminate this.

Check that the unit is level side to side.
Also front to back aor leaning slightly to the back.
