SOURCE: Doors creak loudly when closed and pushed from the outside. Don't when open.

This short solution may help solve your creaking problem. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly. Putting vaseline insid the hinge pins too is a good idea.
Let me know if I can assist you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrig door does not seal


First off, make sure nothing is stopping the door from closing completely. If the door is closing properly, then using a hair dryer, heat the gasket until soft and pliable. You can carefully stretch it towards the cabinet. There is a magnet in the gasket all the way around on the mating portion. While the gasket is soft, the magnet will pull the gasket until contact is made with the cabinet. Once a good seal has been accomplished, allow to door to remain closed for 30 minutes. The seal will cool down, and the new shape will be maintained. After that, close the door on a dollar bill. Gently tug the portion of the bill on the outside of the door from one corner to the other. There should be some resistance to your pulling. If the bill feels loose, apply more heat to the gasket in that area to improve the seal. DO NOT HOLD THE HAIR DRYER IN ONE PLACE TOO LONG AS IT WILL DAMAGE THE GASKET, AS WELL AS THE PLASTIC LINER.

It is a side-by-side, and difficult to open the doors, esp. the refrig. side after having opened and closed the freezer door.


Hi, this problem are what we called, vacuum (air) lock, it's not a problem, it means that your door are sealing properly, you should wait 2-4 mins, before opening, doors will open normally, if you give it 2-4 mins, if you try to open door immediately after closing, you will get that sort of vacuum lock, what you could do when it's lock, push something flat between door gasket and ref. body, try not to break gasket, you will hear air releasing, wait few seconds and door will open easily. it.s quite normally for ref. door to air lock, especially when you try to re-enter ref. immediately after closing. it will go away after a while, good luck.

Dometic RV refrig light will not go out


Open up the door to the freezer, you will see two black switches upper right just above where the door would be when closed. Flip the first switch, then push the switch on the light in the fridge compartment and the light should go out. Thinking that switch is there to help reduce moisture inside fridge, just got pushed by mistake and light remains on. Hope this helps.

replace the switch before the seal, nothing wrong with gasket., you may need to raise the refrig door a bit by , remove the door and install a small spacer to raise the door slightly for better contact
