My Frigidaire refrigerator will...

My Frigidaire refrigerator will not stop beeping. The door ajar light is on but the door is closed. The seal inside the door is bent but hasn't caused this beeping in the past. I've reset it, tried duct taping the seal straight and nothing has helped. Please help.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Where can I find the model number?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It is probably 7-8 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It is a stand alone fridge and freezer with the trim kit to look like one unit.

So first, close the door and peel back the door seal to see if the light is on inside. If it's not, then you just have a bad door switch or control board because the light cuts off which means that the door switch is being triggered. You'll need to test the door switch to make sure it's functioning properly and if not, replace it. If it checks good, then you need a new control board.

Now, if you peel back the door seal and the light is still on, then you either have a bad door switch or the door isn't pushing on the switch. Push the door switch by hand and see if the light goes out. If not, replace the door switch. If the light does go out, heat up the door seal with a hair dryer for 30 minutes or so. That will allow the rubber to reform when you close the door so it's definitely not affecting the way the door shuts anymore.
