Sears came out and repaired my door with this same problem. It was a pretty easy fix. There is a small black part that the door rests on. It just was worn out. The repairman simply unscrewed the door from the top of the refrigerator. He lift the door off. The door normally rest on a black round circular plastic part about 1 in in diameter. It has a small plastic piece sticking up about 1/2 inch that the door rests on. This piece was worn on bottom. I have the Sears invoice and I bought a replacement bin for the door and I don't know which item is for the black plastic piece. Here are both part numbers so call Sears and order the correct part
CAM-DOOR 46 106 4318165 1 or $14.83
SUB TRIM-DOO 46 106 2156022K 1 $12.48
It took the Sear's guy about 10 minutes to repair. So save yourself $200 and do it yourself.

There is a picture of the part in the Whirlpool Manual, under Door Removal, look at the bottom hinge.

Email me if you need another picture.

Why won't door on Samsung side-by-side refrigerator stay closed? Pops open after closing, like the seal isn't working.


The door isn't lining up right when it's closed. I suspect you have been putting heavy stuff on the door racks, like several 2 liter soda bottles or gallon jugs of milk. Over time the door will sag from the weight until it won't stay closed.

When I close my side x side frig the freezer door pops open


This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.

Door will open will not close


Hello,

The door on a refrigerator is an important component to the over all functionality of the refrigerator. A simple refrigerator door repair can potentially save hundreds of dollars in energy every year.
Check the Hinges
A misaligned door hinge can release cold air from inside the refrigerator, causing it to run less efficiently. If the door doesn't shut evenly it could be a problem with a hinge. The easiest repair for this is to simply tighten the screws that hold the hinges. If this doesn't solve the problem try to see if the hinges are level. You may need to replace the hinges all together.
The Door Gasket
The rubber piece that circles the entire door serves a purpose more than just helping the door close quietly. It should form a seal that maintains the temperature inside the refrigerator. If the gasket is cracked or warped you will need to replace this. Find the model number for your refrigerator and you can find the right gasket. Some gaskets are simply put on with adhesives, others require clamps or screws.
The Light
If you have a faulty door switch, the light may stay on in your refrigerator. This wastes valuable energy. To check this simply find the switch and press on it with the door open. Sometimes a thorough cleaning of the switch can fix the problem.

By maintaining your refrigerator door and making the necessary repairs you can save yourself a lot of money in lost energy costs.


I hope this help in solving the problem....

The refrigerator door (not the freezer door) does not close.


Is it closing flush when pushed up or is it not making good contact all around? 2 things can be wrong, the surround needs to be cleaned on the door and fridge and if it still doesn' stick you will need to replace. You can adjust the door slightly at the hinges but only if its loose should you need to. If its tight then it has not shifted and i would focus on the surround clening/replacing first

Refrigerator door will not stay closed


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.

My refrigerator door on my side by side will not stay closed. Does not rotate up the post like the freezer door does. Is there any repair for this?

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.

I have a whirlpool the refrigerator door will not stay close.


It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.
