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.

Try to raise by adjust the 2 front footing slightly higher than the back, this will tilt the unit slightly backwards. That will help the door to close back by itself.

Either the door gasket has worn out and it should be replaced with a new one

or there is something that is pushing on the door frame or the shelves that is preventing the door from closing. If you are sure that nothing inside the fridge is badly seated then the problem must be on the inside of the door frame - humidity has got in and has made the insulation swell and buckle the internal panel. To fix that the entire fridge will have to be dismantled, the insulation dried and packed back in its place - a job for a pro, you will have to call one.

The door flap on my KitchenAid French Door fridge isn't springing completely back into place, and it's catching on the other door.


Locate and adjust the spring responsible for getting that flap into proper place and all will be resolved.

Doors not closing all the way


check level from back to front on fridge if good than check the amount of food that is stored on the door if u have a lot of bulk, weighty stuff they may be acting as a counter balance on the door when u close the left side the air that is trapped usually disperses into the unit and is not forceful enough to push open the door but if their is a lot of additional weight on door it makes the door easier to open and swing on hinge

Right door opens when I close left door


This happens because the two sides are ducted together and when you close one hard enough the air is one chamber is pushed int the other and it forces the door open, All you can do is be sure the gaskets are clean and seating firmly on the frame and adjust the front slightly higher so the doors re-close.

Bottom drawer does not properly close


Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).
