Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The fridge will close but you have to pushed

The fridge will close, but it has to be pushed firmly and then when it is closed there is not sufficient suction and can be easily opened. The seals look ok but the one across the top of the door is not as thick as the side ones. There are 4 hinges on the door, the bottom two  have a piece of plastic between the side of the hinge and door, has this any relevance to the problem

Whirlpool double door fridge. Door wont stay closed. Have to push extra hard to keep it closed


Take out the shelves and drawers. check the rear is clear of ice before putting them back in place, and ensure they are not stopping the door closing. Next check the top and bottom of the door. Is it hitting the frame when closing? If so, straighten it up by tapping the hinge side of the door to make it square to the frame.

Fridge door does not stay closed


"fridge door does not stay closed" (sic) This can happen if the door magnet has lost it's grip, this can be easily replaced, either DIY, or there are many firms that offer this service. Or the latch mechanism isn't working as it should.
if you wish to DIY then first obtain a service manual, for your exact make and model. This shows you what to do & how to do it, also more importantly it has parts numbers too.

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 :)

Door on my samsung frig' will creep open


The fridge needs to have a slight tilt back so the door will close with ease!! also check and clean the door gaskets and metal surface that the gasket touches when the door is closed because there is a magnet inside the gasket and it will make a nice tight seal if all the surfaces are clean.If the gasket is torn it should be replaced

Fridge door pops back open


The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.
