Question:

The door on the refrigerator side doesn't seem to have enough pressure to stay close when you close the freezer door it cause the fridge to open slightly. Could this be the hinge the thimble or something else causing this problem? Thanks for your help

PAUL for model number GD5SHAXNB00
Answer:

Hi Paul, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking to see if the door is sitting level first. If the door is not level it can prevent it from staying closed. If the door is level then I suggest replacing the door gasket as it may have lost the magnetism used to keep a tight seal. Hope this helps!

Refrigerator door failing to close without being pushed shut

Replaced upper cam piece on bottom hinge and also replaced pivot thimble on upper hinge.
No problems, except pivot thimble glued in place. Had to cut up and pull out with pliers. Everything works like new now.
