Door doesn't seal
I live in an apartment and had my refrigerator looked at recently. My problem is that the refrigerator door has to be forced closed to seal, even then the bottom part of the seal doesn't stay tight. The apartment repair guy said that I can't put many items in my door (too much weight) or the door weighs down and won't make a proper seal. I don't put an inordinate amount of weight, but do use it for sodas, water, milk and juice.
If I can't use the door that really cuts down on the space available to use. I decided to come on here and see if there is another solution. The fridge is from 2006. My serial number is: BA62433763 if that will help.

It's an easy fix. Remove the top freezer hinge. Remove the freezer door and set it aside. Unscrew the post in the center hinge and remove it. Pull the top of the fresh food door forward and lift it off. The spacer on the lower hinge is worn out. Add a couple flat washers for shims or replace the spacer:
