The lower section is connected to the top section through a common opening in the freezer floor. Shutting the bottom, being it is larger, will force air to open the top door. I installed a roller for a cabinet on top of my fridge to keep the door from pumping open. It is used to keep children out of cabinets. It is a roller wheel mounted on a spring loaded arm. It keeps the freezer shut until we open it. Some times the pumping action will force the door open enough it will not shut and things get soft. Hope this Helps Fix Ya up.
your damper vent door from the freezer to the refrigerator compartments is either stuck or frozen shut from moisture,sometimes they break and jam too,if this door doesnt open and close your food will get too warm or cold the door needs to move to keep the temperature correct
The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.
Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips. Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
Good day, All cooling comes from the freezer compartment. There is a supply vent connecting the top of the freezer to supply some cold air from the freezer thru the opening on the top connecting the freezer compartment to the fridge side. As well there is a second opening or return chute located in the fresh food section on the bottom lower half, that allows air to return the air back to the freezer, completing the air flow cycle.In almost all cases, the return chute going from the fresh food section to the freezer compartment has become blocked. Usually iced up. It will ned to be completely defrosted. Many times, the return chute is difficult to see and in many cases almost impossible to defrost easily. If you can see the blockage, then it can be defrosted with the gentle use of a hair dryer. However, if too difficult to access, you may need to open both doors and leave the machine unplugged for an extended period, usually 12 to 24 hours.
I know it's a pain, but sometimes necessary. Many times, rushing a refrigerator repair is impossible. The reaon it works when you open the doors is, you have given the machine a secondary source of air from the room.
Hi, this is caused sometimes by Teens and Adults holding the door open with there hand on the upper corner resting as they look for goodies, I do this. This sometimes will cause the door to loosen up and move down a wee bit. Look over the hinges on the door, they should be adjustable to see if they have moved. I am sure this is the problem. You can loosen some more, and raise or lower the door. It would be a lot better to have another set of hands to help with this.This will take care of the freezer door.Best of Luck, Sincerely, Shastalaker7
The lower hinge on each door
may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this
assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not
seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if
it rises up when opened.
Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the
door in place. Put something between the bottom of the doorand the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking
note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
Door or gasket is binding on the upper door or the door is bent. Check and loosen the mounting screws on the hinge. Realign then tighten screws. If you moved the fridge lately the door may have sprung open and is bent. Use duct tape when moving fridges to keep doors shut. The door gaskets may be out of place look on all sides top n bottom for one side making up before the other. A realignment may be all that necessary. Door gaskets warped is sometimes helped by heating it with a hair dryer. if they are coming apart its new gaskets time.
Hope this helps please rate me accordingly even if you just read this. And Good Luck.
Shirlee, you might not have the refer leveled right. The doors should close by themselves when released. Have someone bring the front levelers down so it is pitched back a little. This should eliminate the freezer door staying open. This is caused by the rush of air from the lower compartment to the upper compartment during closing.
