LG Refrigerator

7 posts in this topic

I have LG refrigerator M# LFC25760ST has freezer on bottom. Doors for fresh food section will not shut on thier own. You have to make sure you push doors closed. Gaskets on both doors are torn on the side and corner at the very top and seem to almost be touching or dragging at the top corner. I am not sure if this is causing all of the problem not allowing the doors not to snap closed. Can anyone help me? I have not worked on many LG refrigerators.

 

Thanks

Aside from the gaskets rubbing at corner, how's the upper mullion catch look?  Does in line up properly with the channel at the top/center of liner?  Since there are no closer cams on the bottom of these doors you may be able to install nylon washer shims on the bottom hinge pins to raise and align both f/f doors.

If you remove the door. Some of those have an assembly in the hinge you can pull out and adjust the tension on the closer. Probably wouldn't hurt to replace the torn seals. Maybe adjust the leveling feet to help them close by gravity. I don't think they all have the closer assembly to make them close though.

In accordance with the 8th law of the Prophecy, you have to fix the obvious problems first.  In this case, you can't even fully evaluate the door closing with torn gaskets.  Plus they need to be replaced regardless of whatever else may be going on.  Door gaskets:  http://www.repairclinic.com/LG-Refrigerator-Model-LFC25760ST-ID-684370-Gasket-Seal-Parts

I only did it once. The bottom hinge piece actually slid out once I removed the hardware holding it in. Then it had an arrow telling you to turn one to speed up or slow down. It's been awhile so I don't know the details. It may have had an allen screw. They don't all have that door closer built in though. I tried it on a few other doors and they did not have it. Which means you tell the customer the doors closing automatically isn't a feature. Then try to adjust the front legs to tilt the fridge more and gravity might make them close automatically.
