GE refrigerator model #LTC19340ST freezer door not sealing


That is a common problem with over-under units. You can clean or replace the door seal or, tilt the unit back a TINY bit. The door pops open because there is a common airway from the freezer to the fridge. When the fridge door shuts too fast, it pushes a lot of air into the unit. It needs to go somewhere so, it pops the freezer door open. If you shut the freezer hard enough, you will be able to pop the fridge door open.

I have an Estate refrigerator by whirlpool Corporation, model # TT18DKXRQ01 with a 12-07 mfg. date. When you open the refrigerator door, as it closes, the freezer door always opens and closes. Apparently...


I also own a model # TT18DKXRQ01 Estate refrigerator and my freezer door pops open when I close the refrigerator. As you stated, this is caused by the magnet in the freezer gasket not being strong enough to hold. As far as I know, they do not make a stronger freezer gasket but even if they did, it would probably be too costly considering that a standard gasket replacement costs $80.

My solution was to install an adhesive child safety lock on the top of the freezer near the door handle. I purchased the 'Safety 1st Lock Release Fridge Latch' model # HS038 from my local Walmart store for around $5.

You may find this solution to be slightly inconvenient at first but you will get used to it. It sure beats losing food because the freezer door was accidently popped open.

Freezer won't stay shut


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.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Side by side freezer door pops open


This is a problem inherent with lots of refrigerators. Side by side or top freezer. The rush of air pops the doors. You might want to adjust the pitch of the box by adjusting the front wheels to a higher level.

Kenmore - over under


Adjust the feet to raise the front of the frige, which should be higher than the back. Therefore the weight of the door will keep it shut or at least cause it to shut itself if it pops open.

Freezer Door Popping Open


Look at the bottom of the freezer door, there is a little plastic stopper there. It may be worn out or broken. When you close the door this is what holds it there. Start there first.
