Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
Fridgidaire Side by Side model: FPCE24VFW (15+ yrs age)
The freezer door will stay closed, but
Freezer Door Pops open when the Fridge door is opened then closed.
There is nothing inside that would prevent the door from closing.
I have cleaned the magnetic seal and door facing where the seal meets the cabinet with soap and water.
There are no "gaps" or wrinkles between the seal and cabinet.
I have confirmed that the unit is level front to back and side to side.
This problem has occcured overnight.
Should I replace the door seal or is there something else i should do (short of buying a new one)?
your house may be settling and now the refrigerator needs to be tiloted back slightly. take run the adjusters on the front in a little until the doo closes by it self.

Adjust the front legs of your refrigerator slightly to raise the refrigerator. and and store items on the freezer door shelves to add weight. This is a problem of pneumatics and a testament to how tight newer refrigerators are. When you close the large refrigerator door it compresses the air in the refrigerator compartment. Both compartments are connected by air passages and thus the pressure change is transferred to the freezer causing the freezer door to pop open.
Raising the front of the refrigerator a tiny bit will help both doors close from the 90 degree point, which is desirable. Adding weight to the shelf will just help the process.
An additional aid in self-closure will be to use vegetable oil on a paper towel to wipe down the hinge side face of both door seals. All these maneuvers should aid in causing the door to stay closed and re-close if it should open slightly. Good Luck
