Tips for fridge doors that wont stay shut


  1. Check for any items inside the fridge that may be blocking the door from closing fully.

  2. Clean the rubber gasket around the door with a damp cloth to remove any debris or food particles that may be interfering with the seal.

  3. Ensure that the fridge is level and adjust the feet if necessary to make it sit evenly on the floor.

  4. Check that the door hinges are not loose or damaged and tighten any screws that may be loose.

  5. If the fridge is overpacked, consider removing some items to reduce the weight and pressure on the door.

  6. If the problem persists, it may be a sign that the door seal is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Signs your Fridge door was left open:


  1. The temperature inside the fridge is warmer than usual.

  2. The food items inside the fridge feel warmer or are not as cold as they should be.

  3. Condensation or frost has formed on the shelves or food items.

  4. The fridge is making a louder humming or buzzing sound than usual.

  5. The door gasket or seal is moist or wet to the touch.

  6. The fridge has an unpleasant odor or smells spoiled.

  7. The ice maker or freezer section is not working properly.

  8. The electricity bill for the month is higher than usual due to the fridge working harder to compensate for the warmer temperature.

It's important to note that leaving the fridge door open for extended periods of time can cause food to spoil and lead to potential health hazards. If you suspect that your fridge door was left open, it's a good idea to check the food items and discard any that may have gone bad.
