My refrigerator door wiill not suction when it closes. What Amana part do I need.
Answer Jacquelynn, There are other possibilities, make sure the refrigerator is level in both directions, or slightly higher in front(1/8 to 1/4 inch) Is the door hard to open or close. You will want to check the center hinge and the hinge pin kit 12002311 for excessive wear and damage (plastic shavings or powder) at the bottom fresh food door hinge. Then open the refrigerator door, check the door gasket 67003557 for rolled or wrinkled or torn areas, especially on the hinge side of the door. If all's OK, wash the door gasket and the front flange of the opening with hot soapy water and rinse it off, then apply a thin coat of "Vaseline" to the flange or door gasket on the hinge side. The easiest check, make sure there are no articles in the door bins, or hanging over the shelves that may be causing the door to not seal properly.
Will part number AP4009576 help the door close by it's self?
Answer Hi Bill. You are asking about the lower door hinge operation. On your doors there is a door female insert part called a hinge bearing part # 67004977. It is a replaceable part if broken. There is a door hinge pin that it is positioned on. The center hinge pin is part # 67006744 the bottom hinge pin is part # 67007018. The hex end will inset into the hole of the lower bottom door hinge part # 10585508. There is a center lower hinge is part # 12446513. Its shim gasket is part # 10447906 and part # 10447905 that go between the outer cabinet and the door hinge.Use the plastic thick waqshers part # M0274058 and part # M0274057. They go in between the hinge pin and bottom of the door that may be stacked to squarely stack the door shut. Use Sil-Glide lubricant part # TJ17-132 on all upper and lower pivot point and the door will shut easier. Use a torpedo level on top of the unit and see if it is level front to back and side to side after parts correction to make sure there are not future issues. With the inner door shelves packed full of food, it will allow the door to sag slightly along with a bad un leveled unit. Thank You.
