This sounds like an alignment problem. Loosen the hinges slightly and place the door in the closed position and duck tape it in place. Tighten the hinges and check it for seal. Door is heavy by itself so empty it first and work with some help.
that is common, your pushing air back into the other side and that pops the door. First adjust the ref so that the back sits lower than the front. It will have 2 5/16th nuts on the front behind the kickplate. going left will lower the back of the unit. After that get out some vasoline and lube up the flat sides of the door seal, this will help keep the seal moist and it wont pop open as easy
If you want a part number for the replacement door gasket please provide a complete model number here so I can give that to you or you can look it up yourself at www.searsdirect.com You must have your model number. (sample 110.XXXXX etc)
The magnet is inside the door seal itself. If the seal is damaged replacement is your only option.
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.
