Question about GE Profile Arctica Stainless Steel Top Freezer Refrigerator
The best way to fix this is to run the front leveling legs down more. You want the Ref to lean backward some so the doors close when this happens. What is going on is that when you close one door the air is pushed back into the other compartment and pops the door, this will happen less with time but for now have some one lean the unit back a bit, run the legs down untill it leans back. A good way to test is hold the door open at a 90 degree angle and just let go. if it shuts on its own it is good to go, if not run the front legs down a little more. Good luck

In all honesty, this is not necessarily a FIX, but will at least help you identify which parts of your refrigerator may be malfunctioning and causing this problem.
You may have frost build-up on the evaporator coils. If this is the case, the unit's fan is not going to be able to circulate air effectively through the unit. These coils are usually located in the back of the freezer and may be accessed through a removable panel if you have an older machine. In newer machines, the coils are located underneath with another removable panel.
If these panels are covered in ice, you will want to remove as much food as you can from the refrigerator / freeze and leave it open. This will allow the unit to thoroughly defrost. To speed up the process, you might put steaming pots of water on the shelves. Once all the ice has melted away, turn your refrigerator's thermostat back to a normal setting. If your refrigerator regains its ability to cool, this will indicate that the unit's timer, heater, or thermostat has failed.
At least this step will narrow down what it is we're looking for.
