Dometic Fridge hard to close

Suddenly my dometic fridge gets too hard to close when it's almost closed. After reviewing the way the freezer closes it's apparent that the fridge is supposed to slide/lift upward when close to closing, then lock into place. It doesn't move lift/ move upward and then gets difficult to close at the end. I now have to bend down and lift the door up and into place to close. Not a big deal, but very annoying . Anyone have this issue before? I did try a search before posting but didn't see anything here about it.
Thanks in advance!

Well, I think the fridge has more or less cured itself.
~ that and removing heavy items from the door.

The hinges can be a little out of adjustment. usually a single small washer under the bottom one's pin will boost the door up just enough to close easily, and you can put heavy things back in the door. I have had to do that on several of the RV refrig's I have had over the years.
