Hello- I have one of these, a KSSS48 model, and the upper portion of the freezer door is sticking out 1/4-1/2 inch further than the fridge door when closed.
The door is not sealing and there is ice buildup in the freezer around the door opening.
It is difficult to even push it fully closed.
There are no obstructions in the way.

Is there a way to adjust the door to kick the top in further to get it to seal?

Thanks!

I don't see any adjustments on the hinge components. Has anyone inspected the upper door hinge to see if it might be worn or come loose?

Thanks. The repairman that worked on it didn't put the icemaker drawer in correctly, and it was blocking the door.
DOH!!
