I think there were 2 things going on. I know that the fan motor was bad. after looking at the door gasket, the lower left has a tear in it. 

 

Someone mentioned on a video about spills making the gasket stick and then tearing when the door is pulled open. I've replaced the

 

fan so, now I'll start looking for a door gasket. Thank you!

Fridge/Freezer working now. Installed new gasket a few days ago. 3 of the freezer door corners are about 3/4" from the freezer. The lower left is

 

about 1 1/16" from the freezer face.  The gasket screws are all snug. There's a little ice starting to form along the top forward section of the freezer.

 

As if moisture is getting in. I've attached photo links to show the difference in the corners.

 

3 corners, upper left & right, and the lower right of the door are are about this distance from the freezer door face.

1 corner, the lower left, is about 1 1/16" away from the freezer face and isn't sealing properly. It was further away but, sealing when installed

 

last week.

Any ideas on what would cause the door not to be square? The door gasket is new with no tears/rips. I bought it from Repairclinic.com .

loosen all the screws a little bit , not real loose but a little , this will keep the liner from cracking

 

hold the bottom of the door closed , and pull the top open a little bit until the door is correct

 

snug up each screw on each side of each corner , this is a total of 8 screws , recheck the door , if still good snug up all the rest of the screws

 

the reason i use the word "snug" is you don't crank down on these screws like you might think , as the liners age , they crack real easy , so be careful , with a light touch


SORRY ABOUT THE SPELLING , I FIX GREAT , I DON'T SPELL WELL
