I just moved into a home with this refrigerator in the basement. Would really like to be able to use it so I greatly appreciate your help. It is currently unplugged and empty so no ice or anything is impeding it from closing. The gasket seal appears to be on properly, it just isn't touching at the top half of the body of the refrigerator when it's closed. All drawers are removed and there is no ice maker or anything in the freezer. It closes to the point right around where the light is on half the time and on the other half when I close it. First time posting, please let me know if you need anymore information or pictures and thanks in advance for any help.IMG_20170920_074546.jpgIMG_20170920_074616.jpgIMG_20170920_074557.jpgIMG_20170920_074436.jpgIMG_20170920_074508.jpg

Make sure there's nothing caught in the rails like plastic. Loosen the four screws holding the rails to the door then push the top of the freezer door in and tighten one screw on each side and see if the door closes properly then tighten the rest checking as you go. Make sure none of the screws are missing.

It was as simple as that. Thank you very much for your help...idk how or why those screws would go missing but glad it's running again.
