Goofy door seals
Posted 16 May 2005 - 12:18 PM
Kenmore side by side, 106.8590581. Twice in the past month I've come home to find the door open about 2", and the inside temp just a bit below room temp. Yeah! I love throwing food away .. . NOT.
Anyway, I don't understand what could be causing this. I've inspected the door seals, and they seem to be ok... there is small spot on the lower left of the fridge door where the vinyl is missing (about 1" long); exposing what appears to me to be magnetic strips built into the seal.
Which makes sense to me, as the last time I paid attention and/or noticed, it seemed sort of difficult to open the doors - it took a fairly good pull to get the door to open.
I've cleaned both the seals and the face of the fridge; no improvement.
The fridge hasn't been moved since the last time the doors sealed properly, which I don't know for sure when this was, but I do remember having company about 6 months ago and they commented on how tight the doors sealed. (Beer drinkers notice these things).
I thought I would ask here before replacing the seals - do they go out this suddenly, or is there something else I should look at first?

The other problem could be that the front levelling adjusters need to be raised a bit so the fridge tips back ever so slightly.
