Question about GE ZICS360NMRH Monogram® 36" Built-In Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator (ZICS-360NMRH, ZICS 360NMRH)

1 Answer

Door on Monogram ZIR36N won't pull closed and stay shut

Does pull with authority as if grabbed by a magnet. When push totally closed it will back off and stay open about 1/2 inch.

Noticed under the bottom door hinge that there is a bar with a spring, but I don't think that plays a role in holding the door shut

The spring is actually a door closure , are the wheels that the bar closure mechanism goes through and attaches to the spring moving freely? It is entirely possible that a bin in the fridge is keeping the door open.

My GE Monogram Frig door will not stay shut, it's lost its vacuum seal!


Check the fridge for out of level. Magnets on the weather-stripping hold the door closed. If there is something stuck on the seal, or too much weight in the door in an un-level fridge it will not make good contact. Try cleaning the rubber, and removing everything from the door after leveling. A good seal will stay closed even if the fridge is off.

Side by side door not shutting properly


There are magnets inside the seal this is what keeps it closed. Either the seal is damaged or the magnets are worn out. They do wear out but usually not for at least 10 years depending on the usage.You can go to www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagraam or illustration of your specific model. The parts also come with installation instructions.

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.

Freezer door won't stay shut


This indicates that you do not have good airflow and return airflow between your freezer and refrigerator sections. That is why the pressure from closing one door is causing the other one to pop open.

Check the drain tube on the back of the machine to make sure it is not clogged or blocked with frozen water inside. Also check any return air flow vents inside the unit for clear ice.

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.

Freezer door won't stay shut


I have the exact same problem - very annoying. The only thing I found to work was to purchase one of those child safety locks. I bought the Kidco Appliance Fridge Lock S330 because it was the only one I could find that automatically relocks after you shut the door. Buy two (or more) at a time because the arm will eventually wear out and break (after several months depending on how often you use it). You can check out the product's details on eBay - that's where I purchased mine. Hope that helps.
