Question about Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Thanks for the previous info peyton!
Try closing the freezer door VERY slowly. This seems to help.

This is a normal occurence and there is nothing that can be done to stop it from happening. what causes it is when that freezer reaches sub-freezing temps it creates a low pressure type condition that causes a vacum. this has always happend on all refrigs but older unit had so many air leaks that the pressure released very quickly and the doors werent hard to open. this vacum condition is a testament to the way the manufacturers have improved the seals and air tightness of newer units.
there are vacum breaks that can be installed on the refrig that can help a little but this also allows air to leak back into the unit and cause a loss of effciency. most times if you will wait 20-30 seconds that vacum will release and the doors will open normally.
