    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
    For model number GD5SHAXNB00
    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!

    Need to re-aline my door on fridge. Not sure what parts i might need. Do not want to take door off & find out i do not have all parts i need.
    For model number KSRG25FKSS04
    Good Day Rodger. Thank you for your question in regards to your unit (Model Number KSRG25FKSS04). To realign the door, just pry off the hinge cap and loosen the hinge screws. Then align the door with the top of the refrigerator. Adjust only the top hinge to straighten refrigerator door. You may may need the Hinge Cover, Screws, Top Hinge - Right Side, We recommend referring to your Owner's Manual of your unit for further information. We hope this helps! Best Regards.

    Refrigerator door (fridge side) is not aligned. The problem stems from the top hinge. The piece of the hinge (metal post) that goes down into the top of the door is not hugged or gripped by the piece it goes down into. What is the piece the metal post goes down into? The thimble? Any help would be appreciated. The refrigerator door has to be pushed shut and is not staying shut all the time.
    For model number ED5LHAXMB10
    Hello Tara, Thank you for your inquiry. Researching the model number that you have provided, the metal post would go into the thimble at the top of the door, part# PS11739043. We hope this helps and if you need help placing an order for a part, customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!

    This seems like what is needed but is this for the top hinge? The top corner of the door has dropped and hits the freezer door. Have to lift the door a bit to close and open.
    For model number 10648212500
    Hello Betty and thanks for writing. Yes it is for the top hinge, it should fix your problem. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.
