It almost sounds as if the magnetic gaskets aren't as they should be.

Most all combination units have a path between the two parts of them to allow circulation of air, the amount or rato of which, is controlled by an adjustment that really just makes a duct larger or smaller so temperatures can be balanced to fall within the range needed by each.

Check to see if, when closed slowly, the gasket surfaces are parallel to the steel of the housing.
If not, there is normally a little adjustment possible at the hinge mountings.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Door on Monogram ZIR36N won't pull closed and stay shut

The spring is actually a door closure , are the wheels that the bar closure mechanism goes through and attaches to the spring moving freely? It is entirely possible that a bin in the fridge is keeping the door open.

Freezer Door


There is usually some adjustment on the hinges. Your is termed buttbound, the door at the hinges is too close so it makes the door pop open. Take everything out of the inside door shelves if there are any. Slacken the mounting screws a little and pull the door away from the frame, make sure it sites square and tight, and then tighten up the mounting screws. With a freezer, i would also suggest fully defrosting it first.

Refrigerator door does not stay closed. When the freezer door is closed the refrigerator pops open.


The fridge and freezer share their airspace, so when you close one there is a slight increase in pressure in the other unit. (Much like opening a window can cause a door open/close in your house due to pressure change/air movement) The magnet in your seal of the door is weak and unable to resist the pressure change. The seal should be changed.

Could also be that the door is not shutting properly in the first place due to sagging or skewed hinges that need adjustment/replacement and while shutting just may not be getting a complete seal that it should be.

GE French door fridge problem. When you close one door the other door pops open alittle most of the time. Is this normal on french door fridges?


Hello, In a word, Yes. It is totally normal, when you close a door it pushes air into the unit and depending on how it is closed the other door will "pop" open slightly from the "push" of air. Thanks for coming to fixya. macmarkus :)

When we close the refrigerator door (side-by-side unit) the freezer door pops open slightly. The unit is about 14 months old and the seals look fine.


There is something not fully in place holding the door from closing completely. It doesn't take much. You should be able to feel slight resistance when opening if it is seated properly. The cavities are connected so when you close the door fast the air pressure moves from one to the other and pops the door open.

Fridge door pops back open


The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.

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.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or
for more help go to live chat.Thanks

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.
