MaytagMFD2561HES french door slams open

I have a MaytagMFD2561HES french door unit - and the right-side door when opened always slams all the way open if you don't hold it. With kids going in and out of it all day this becomes not only highly annoying but at some point I think the doort will just break off. We've had a repair man in to look at it - he adjusted level - took door off, etc., and finally gave up - said he'd never seen it before and doesn't know why it's happening.  Any suggestions to stop the slamming?

Freezer drower adustment?


The one time I had this problem, a warranty technician (on site for the icemaker again) opened the freezer drawer about half way and, I sh*t you not, slammed it shut and it was fixed. Somehow, this realigns the plastic parts on the two side tracks. Anyway, it made sense and it quit frosting up. Don't slam it too hard though, probably best to let the wife do it..

there should be two set screws in the front of the refrigerator behind the long vent cover remove it and the screws should be in each corner. take a socket that's the right side and turn them and it should level the frige.

GE French door fridge problem. When you close one door the other door pops open alittle most of the time. Is this normal on french door fridges?


Hello, In a word, Yes. It is totally normal, when you close a door it pushes air into the unit and depending on how it is closed the other door will "pop" open slightly from the "push" of air. Thanks for coming to fixya. macmarkus :)

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.

Maytag Fridge French Door hinge discrepancy - hard swing


Vhotho, Maytag put out a service bullitin regarding this problem. This of course is for the model that is posted. The fix is to install a new right side center hinge and door stop limiting the opening to 135 degrees. They must of redesigned it. I can give you the part numbers. Black and stainless the hinge is 67006443 and the stop is 67006276. For white the hinge is 67006379 and the stop is 67006278. This bullitin came out in Feb of 2006. TDR-0057a-b. Catriver..post back.
