Built-In French Door Flipper Seal Does Not Close Properly

Core Issue:

  • Built-In (BI) French door not closing properly
  • French door flipper seal preventing door from closing properly
  • How to adjust the door to prevent issues with French door flapper seal gasket

Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. Ensure food or containers inside the unit do not prevent the doors from closing properly.
  2. Close French doors in either order, right or left first. They should close normally regardless of which side is closed first.
  3. Opening the door slowly may result in the flipper not opening all the way. This can cause the flippers to hit the right-hand door when closing if the right-hand door is closed.


If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. A door adjustment may be needed to resolve the issue. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
