SOURCE: Refrigerator door stays open.
Sears came out and repaired my door with this same problem. It was a pretty easy fix. There is a small black part that the door rests on. It just was worn out. The repairman simply unscrewed the door from the top of the refrigerator. He lift the door off. The door normally rest on a black round circular plastic part about 1 in in diameter. It has a small plastic piece sticking up about 1/2 inch that the door rests on. This piece was worn on bottom. I have the Sears invoice and I bought a replacement bin for the door and I don't know which item is for the black plastic piece. Here are both part numbers so call Sears and order the correct part
CAM-DOOR 46 106 4318165 1 or $14.83
SUB TRIM-DOO 46 106 2156022K 1 $12.48
It took the Sear's guy about 10 minutes to repair. So save yourself $200 and do it yourself.
There is a picture of the part in the Whirlpool Manual, under Door Removal, look at the bottom hinge.
Email me if you need another picture.

The GE GSL22JFPH refrigerator door gets lower over time. When it gets low enough the light stays on when the door closes. There is a vertical bolt along the hinge line. Push down the hinged plastic "hinge cover" under the door right on the hinge line and you can get a wrench on the bolt to raise the door. I have to do this every 6 months/

Try to raise by adjust the 2 front footing slightly higher than the back, this will tilt the unit slightly backwards. That will help the door to close back by itself.

It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.

The lower hinge on each door
may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this
assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not
seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if
it rises up when opened.
To replace it Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
