When I close my freezer door, the refrigerator door pops open.


That's normal due to the pressure created when you close one door it forces the other one open. Mine does that but only if I close the door a little harder than usual.
If it does it all the time when you close the door easily, then maybe the door magnets need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

Our side by side freezer door opens slightly


That is a common occurrance for side by side refrigerators. Closing the fresh food door is like having your car windows closed and closing the door. You can feel the air pressure on your ears. In the refrigerator, the air passes through the duct and into the freezer pushing the door open. The magnet on the door gasket should keep it closed. But it may be the freezer door needs the hinges adjusted to the door seats better when closed. Take the plastic cover off the top hinge and you can loosen the screws (don't take them out) and adjust the door slightly (so it looks even between both doors) and tighten the screws up. The top of the door should be level with the top of the unit, and the gap between the doors even the whole way down.

Frezer door opens when you close refrigerator door


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.

Best option is a silicone lubricant spray from Radio Shack or Maplins depending which country you are in

My subzero side by freezer/fridge has a horrid squeek


Try putting some Vaseline onto the door cams, it is probably just the plastic cams rubbing, they may need to be replaced but the Vaseline trick is free. You will need someone to open the door and lift it a little to make some space between the two cams, put the Vaseline on with a Q-Tip onto the two mating surfaces of the cams.

Freezer door opens When you close refir. door


The freezer door is relatively light weight, and when the fresh foods door closes, the air has to go somewhere and the easiest escape route is to momentarily pop the freezer door open. The door should close again quickly. If is does not, make sure the freezer door liner is not touching the top or bottom, causing dragging resistance, and make sure that the front leveling legs are raised up so the door closes by it's self when released from a 45 degree opening. Sometimes the hinge side gasket rubs and holds things up also, especially if that area was cleaned. If that is the case, rub a film of wax on the hinge side gasket to lubricate it. Additional weight in the freezer door will also help.
