Refrigerator Door Not Closing Flat
We have a 3-yr old GE Monogram bulit-in frig. The frig door does not stay totally closed - we close it, and then it gradually opens about 1" past the freezer door. We had GE service yesterday, and he replaced the door spring, wiped the gasket and lubed it with vaseline. He did not have a new gasket. It did not change the situation. He said that we probably did not need a new one and the gasket should gradually heal itself and the frig door will close all the way after 2 wks. I think this is mumbo-jumbo and that we need a new gasket.
On the other hand, the gasket is pretty intact and does not look damaged. The only thing I can see is that it does not compress down as much on the outside of the door as the inside, which could push the door open. I have read on other forums that one can reform a gasket by heating up with a heat gun. I was thinking of trying to compress the gasket with that technique. Any ideas?
One thing for sure is that GE service is horrible.
