SOURCE: sub-zero 500 series refrigerator door wont stay closed

If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door... If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.

Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

Door not creating suction when door closes


the door may need adjusting
cut an place a strip of paper between the seal and the fridge and close the door
if the paper pulls out easily then the seal is not touching fridge
The suction is created when the warm air from the room that gets into the fridge when the door is opened is cooled down and occupies less space hence the lower pressure and the vacuum forms

Side by side kenmore refrigerator no suction on produce side


There is no suction normally. The door has a spring type mechanism to keep it firmly closed, and the magnetic seal takes up the slack. Check the door/ hinge is straight and tight and look at the top of the hinge. There is a small cylinder about 5mm high with a number of dimples in it. One of these should have a pin in it that operates the spring mechanism; if it is missing the door will not close well.

Also make sure there is nothing in the fridge protruding, stopping the door from closing and the seal sticking!

I have problem with m refrigerator door.As soon as I open the door,after closing it,I can not open again.I have to wait 4-5 minutes to poen it again. It seams to be stiked to to the refrigerator.Please...


Is the same thing happening to the freezer? There may be a vacuum being created like a suction cup, in your fridge due to the high quality seal you have... your door becomes hard to open... maybe try closing it slower/softer or place a "small" flat fridge magnet on the TOP of the door where the seal meets it, to allow for a small amount of air to prevent the suction. Good luck!

Our side-by-side fridge has lost suction on one side. It is now to the point that the door will open on it's own.


Your fridge does not have "Suction", but has a magnetic strip in the door seal. My guess is that you may need a new seal. You can buy one from the manufacturer of your fridge. Best of luck to you and enjoy the holiday.

Freezer door pops open when the Refrigerator door is being closed


My new freezer did the same thing. I contacted the company and they went into the whole leveling thing. What it has to do with is the magnetic seal. The magnets are not strong enough to keep the freezer door from popping open when closing the big fridge door. They share the same duct. I level my doors on the fridge and freezer so they swing shut by themselves after opening. Just the force of the big door when it swung closed cracked open the freezer door about a quarter of an inch and if left unnoticed created a puddle and made the fridge run overtime. I solved the problem by placing strong magnets inside the fold of the magnetic seal at the handle end of the door. This is the flap on the outside the door seal. I used six magnets on the top and six on the bottom. The magnets were from discarded Sonicare tooth brush heads. They are very flat and super strong. You can find something on ebay. My freezer door doesn't budge problem solved. I did call the company and told them I solved the problem and they still insisted it was the leveling. Good luck, Art Knapp

Suction of freezer door


No, that perceived suction effect is the magnetic door seals 'grabbing" onto the fridge cabinet and pulling the door(s) shut firmly and securely.

Typically as the fridge gets older, you'll need to clean off both the fridge cabinet edges and the door seals to maintain a proper seal, which is essential to keeping the fridge operating properly.

Hopefully you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Side by side


Suction at door is caused by the rapid reduction in air volume after you have had a freezer door open and then close it. The refrigerator door side does not have as pronounced air reduction volume due to less temperature difference.

Test you door gasket seal by closing the door on paper (dollar bill) works fine. If you have resistance when sliding or pulling on the paper you have a good seal. No resistance means your door is not sealing properly.
