French door on right keeps swinging open

Hi, our french door refrigerator is great, but when we open the door on the right it swings quickly to the right. The other door will stay where we put it. It is frustrating. Can this be adjusted so the door doesn't swing so hard when we open it?

How to install spring on french door flapper/divider for Samsung RF266


On mine one end of the spring broke off in the hole on the door. It was on top of the hinge so it looked like a pivot pin. I found that this was the second hole for the spring. I pushed the end of the new spring up under the hinge and popped the broke piece of old spring out. Now I could see the 2 holes. You then need to put the spring into each hole. The hole on the flap also needs a white plastic sleeve if that is missing. that goes on the end of the spring and fits into the flap hole. Then the trick part is understanding how the spring works? If you put both ends of the spring in the holes and shut the flap, it now stays in position to close and be flipped open by the guide that swings it open to seal.

Good Luck.

French doors - when you close one side the other pops open especially when the door is closed hard


This is normal operation,the new units are very efficient and air tight so when you close one door especially hard you are forcing air into the inside that has to escape somewhere therefor it forces the door that is stationary open just enough for the air to escape,as long as the door closes back afterward you have no problem if the door opens and swings out,then you would have a leveling problem the fridge would be leaning too far to the front.

Right side door keeps on swinging open


Does it have a magnetic gasket? If that has cracked and failed, it's not too hard to replace. If the door is warped out of shape, just push it back.
