Hi, The freezer door on my Electrolux side by side refrigerator

Resolved Question:

Hi, The freezer door on my Electrolux side by side refrigerator does not shut without pushing it all the way closed and pops open almost every time I shut the fridge. It's a 5 year old refrigerator and I only noticed this problem in the past week. I've cleaned the seal with soap and water and lifted the front probably 1/4-1/2 inch. Same problem. It seems like the hinge is too close to the frame but I don't see a way to adjust that. Thanks!

PS - while I'm at it the ice dispenser on the freezer door has been a problem ever since I got the fridge. When you press the lever the ice pours out and keeps pouring a bit after you let the lever go. You have to have a good quick touch (and some luck) or ice ends up on the floor.
