Door is difficult to Open - Undercounter Refrigerator

Possible Solutions

Do the door gasket(s) seem dirty or sticky?

The gasket(s) needs to be cleaned  in order for the lid or door to open and close properly. Dirt and other particles can build up on the gasket surface and can cause resistance. Check the lid gasket regularly to ensure it is clean and free from food particles.

Is the refrigerator level?

Your refrigerator has four leveling legs. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you want the door to close more easily, adjust the refrigerator's tilt by following the instructions in your "Owner's Manual". 

If the Refrigerator is not level, it could have the following problems:

  • Door not properly closing
  • Door not properly sealing (moisture build up)
