Identifying a problem with your refrigerator’s door may sound like common sense, but it can present a real problem to the efficiency and performance of your appliance. If your refrigerator door does not close properly the cold air will seep out. This of course leads to warm items in your fridge, but can also do serious damage to your compressor as it works harder and harder to maintain proper temperature.

As soon as you notice that your refrigerator door is not closing all the way, that it bounces back when shut, or a loosening of the seal around the door frame it is time to have the door serviced. Here are some other warning signs to watch out for:

  • A compressor that won’t stop running
  • Inadequate cooling/warm items coming from fridge
  • Beading or condensation on the outer surfaces of your fridge
  • Freezing or iced over evaporator coils
  • Increased frost or presence of ice within your freezer

There is no guarantee that a door in need of service is responsible for any of these refrigerator symptoms, but it is possible and usually easy to repair. Most times a new seal around the door or a replacement hinge will take care of the problem. The only way to be sure of what is causing your door to malfunction is to have a professional Washington DC refrigerator repair technician exam it. Don’t be fooled into thinking that an improperly working door is not a problem. The door’s gasket could have failed, a spacer could have broken off, or you may even require a new door due to warping.
