Re: Refrigerator door not closing all the way
The pressure inside the box is pussing the other door open and what you need to do is tilt your refrig back until the door will close by itself and that will be as far as you need to go back with it ,,,, it's normal for it to happen and a frig should always have a little tilt / larryyb

it could be a defective damper vent door,( frozen shut from condensation) between the freezer and refrigerator,the motor that opens and closes this door,or a thermistor in the refrigerator that signals the control board in the rear of the unit to operate the damper vent door motor to open and close this door
If you close any refrig door " fast " , the other will pop open . These magnetic door gaskets , are designed for lighter holding power now , than they used to be , due to children getting caught inside . I would suggest lowering the front legs slightly , so that when you let go of the door , it will close slowly on its own .
We solved this problem by replacing the plastic parts on the top & bottom of the door that 'latch' the door closed.
On the top of each door is a white plastic 'cam' that latches into a receiver at the center point of the refrigerator chamber. One of mine was broken. Additionally, on the bottom edge of each door is a white plastic hook-shaped 'stopper' that provides spring tension. I replaced both of those and now all is happy.
Got the parts from RepairClinic.com Item #: 1266811 Description: Door hinge cam (left) Price: $2.40 Item #: 1266810 Description: Door hinge cam (right) Price: $2.40 Item #: 1267543 Description: Stopper,door Price: $2.40
check the alignment of the doors. their is an adjustment on the top hinge. also the hinges have washers on them that you can adjust the door up and down by moving washers to the hinge under or over the door.
if you already checked this and think
it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out. Mike
There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold.
The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
