Side by side freezer door not closing right
« on: October 10, 2011, 10:29:13 PM »

Maytag (Plus Side by side freezer with ice/water dispenser) freezer door clicks and does not close properly.  It seems like a spring inside the door is trying to keep it open.  Any advice for repair?

If the cam risers are fine you may want to raise the front legs up a little to shift the weight of the doors towards the rear of the box. This will make the door close tighter.
