Refrigerator Squeaking Door Hinge or Drawer

The quickest and cleanest way to eliminate the squeaking of a refrigerator door is to lubricate the top and bottom hinges with the below recommended oils, then work the door back and forth until the noise goes away.

  • Paraffin wax (not candle wax) - can also be used on the door gaskets
  • Petroleum jelly - recommended for hinges, door gaskets and Fresh Food drawers/bins (including rollers)
  • Mineral oil - general use anywhere, can be washed off
