Sea Breeze, why do you tell everyone to go to this website? Is this your website and are you advertising for it on fix ya? Sounds like you are directing traffic rather than solving problems. Are you really an expert?

Water drops under top door always!


Hello,

That is strong indication that the magnets inside of the door gasket(s) are weak and aren't holding tight to the door to seal it. The door gasket(s) need to be replaced.

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is...


There is an air duct that connects the fridge to the freezer. When the opposite door is closed air is trapped and forced out the other door pushing it open.
The door seals contain a magnetic strip that hold the door to the fridge, these magnetic strips have lost their strength, to test this use a shhet of paper. Open the door, place the sheet of paper across where the door closes, shut the door, then slide the paper out. If the paper comes out without any resistance then the door seal needs to be replaced.

Freezer door pops open when the Refrigerator door is being closed


My new freezer did the same thing. I contacted the company and they went into the whole leveling thing. What it has to do with is the magnetic seal. The magnets are not strong enough to keep the freezer door from popping open when closing the big fridge door. They share the same duct. I level my doors on the fridge and freezer so they swing shut by themselves after opening. Just the force of the big door when it swung closed cracked open the freezer door about a quarter of an inch and if left unnoticed created a puddle and made the fridge run overtime. I solved the problem by placing strong magnets inside the fold of the magnetic seal at the handle end of the door. This is the flap on the outside the door seal. I used six magnets on the top and six on the bottom. The magnets were from discarded Sonicare tooth brush heads. They are very flat and super strong. You can find something on ebay. My freezer door doesn't budge problem solved. I did call the company and told them I solved the problem and they still insisted it was the leveling. Good luck, Art Knapp

Every time the refrigerator door is closed, the freezer door pops open. How can we better secure the seals?

Refrigerator door does not stay closed. When the freezer door is closed the refrigerator pops open.


The fridge and freezer share their airspace, so when you close one there is a slight increase in pressure in the other unit. (Much like opening a window can cause a door open/close in your house due to pressure change/air movement) The magnet in your seal of the door is weak and unable to resist the pressure change. The seal should be changed.

Could also be that the door is not shutting properly in the first place due to sagging or skewed hinges that need adjustment/replacement and while shutting just may not be getting a complete seal that it should be.

Intergrated fridge door no longer shtting tightly


some refrierators have magnets at the bottom of the door. some times the magnets get moved out of place and the door no longer makes contact with them. try looking for the magnets with a steel screwdriver and inspect to see if they are in the correct place.

Fridge Door not shutting/sticking


the fridge door stays shut only by strip magnets inside the door seal. cause is possibly that the hinges are out of line or the cabinet distorted. try levelling the fridge and tilt slightly backwards

Freezer door won't stay shut


Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
