SOURCE: freezer door won't stay shut

This indicates that you do not have good airflow and return airflow between your freezer and refrigerator sections. That is why the pressure from closing one door is causing the other one to pop open.

Check the drain tube on the back of the machine to make sure it is not clogged or blocked with frozen water inside. Also check any return air flow vents inside the unit for clear ice.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

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.

SOURCE: freezer door wont seal and stay closed

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.

Door won t stay shut


Hate to say it, but that could be anything. I would start by emptying the fridge, shelves, drawers and all and seeing if it closes. 9 times out of 10 I see something obstructing it. If that doesn't doo it, then the door closer may be bad. They have 2 styles on this unit depending on age. either 2 white plastic cams that can break and "squish" out from between the 2 halves of the bottom hinge, or a closer arm that has lost it's tension and needs to be replaced. That would be rare, but it can happen. I have also seen one instance where the pair of switches at the bottom of the door have gotten so hard to push in, that they hold the door open. push those in by hand and make sure they don't resist too much. The other thing that can cause this is a sagging door. the lower hinge can bend or sag and the whole door droops then doesn't allow it to line up correctly with the box. look for signs of that too. Hope this helps.

Door springs


If the door won't stay shut the issue is with the door catch not the door springs, But if you want to know where the door springs are you need to remove the outer cabinet of the dishwasher and you will see them on the lower sides.

Door won't close


Check to see if anything is restricting it from closing inside of the crevice where the wheel travels and locks. Sometimes debris from trees, dirt or rocks can clog it up.

If the door handles feel like they have resistance but don't open the door I would suspect a seized door latch.

My GE TFX22Z has served me well over the years. Recently, I noticed that the refrigerator side door has lowered about 3/4 of an inch when compared to the freezer side door. In other words, they no longer...


from the description given I came up with;
possibly the screws are lose on the top door hinge, the top or bottom hinge is worn, the door is warped or damaged.

HAVE A KENMORE REFRIGERATOR - MODEL # 253.60734407 - HAVING PROBLEM WITH THE MAIN DOOR STAYING CLOSED. IF I PLACE 2 LITES OF SODA ON THE DOOR. THE DOOR WON'T STAY SHUT. HAVE THERE BEEN ANY OTHER...


The main thing that makes a fridge door shut is that it falls shut because it is set at a slight angle with the front of the machine higher than the back. You may find the solution is as simple as making the fridge tip back a tiny bit more by turning the front feet clockwise to screw them out of the chassis and make them longer, causing the fridge to tip back a little and the door to fall shut as it should.
