Customer Question

siemans KG44U193GB fridge freezer. The door seems to have dropped and caused the catch to brake. So when closing the fridge we have to lift it to colse, but then after 10 seconds or more the fridge alarm goes off.
I have found the new parts for the catch, but if the door still drops slightly then its going to do the same thing?
