SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Refrigerator suction/vacuum noise, rear section when freezer door is closed

there is no suction system. flush your defrost drain tube with boiling water and a turkey baster. should get some pretty nasty sludge out and sound will go away.

SOURCE: WF860 Door stuck in closed position.

FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

SOURCE: R/H door swings open too easily and hits counter behind door.

Hi LC,

Your fresh food lower door hinge cam assembly has failed and needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to replace, really... but you have to remove the FF door to get to it. <---which is VERY simple to do. But first thing first, right? You'll obviously need the replacement part on hand prior to the repair, so the part number is WR02X10779. You can see what it looks like here (you could also order it here if you don't have a local appliance parts retailer).

OK, now that you have the cam assy., Empty out all the goodies that you have stored in the FF door shelves. Then using a sturdy step stool, remove the upper hinge cover. Below the cover, you'll find three more screws, remove them (just so you know ahead of time... after you remove the last of the 3 screws, the door is no longer "attached" to the frame, so hold on to the door while removing the last one, OK?). Now all ya have to do is lean the door forward (from the top) and lift it off of the lower hinge/cam assembly.

Now that the door is off, all that's left to do is remove the old cam assy., install the new one and rebuild everything! Easy Breezy! You'll be in and out of this job within 20-30 minutes.

Oh yeah... one other thing. When you replace the door and are putting the top hinge back on, put all 3 screws in but don't tighten them yet. You'll need to "level" the door and THEN tighten them. Just lift the fridge door handle 'til the top of the door is level with the Freezer door, tighten the screws while holding the door in this position, deal? Cool.

Hope this helps!

How do I reset my 601R refridge so the suction seal comes on?


I assume your unit is cooling correctly since the following explanation is predicated on a properly working refrigerator.

There is no "suction seal" that comes on with your refrigerator, rather this the effect from the closing of the door and the rapid cooling of the warmer air (that entered with the door open) which causes a contraction that is the vacuum you feel. This will only last for a short time as the built-in venting (usually via the drain) will allow the low pressure to balance so the door opens normally. If this has ceased to occur it indicates there is an air leak somewhere which prevents the vacuum from forming. Replacing door gaskets can be tricky so be certain the door closes and seals all the way around. Using a dollar bill (or similar slip of paper), insert the bill between the door and cabinet, close the door on it and then gently pull the bill out. You should feel a slight resistance and have to tug to slide the bill out. Repeat this every few inches all the way around the door to locate any spots where the contact is not as firm. Typically this can happen on the hinge side, especially near the corners.

You might have a hinge problem, a warped door or some other problem that keeps the door from closing fully.

Refrigoator door does not vacuum seal tight like it used to when new. Door barely stays closed on gasket.


What I hears sounds as if the refrigerator needs re-leveling. Here are some basic things to do as in this video. Every refrigerator is not always the same but the idea is to cause the doors to shut inward if you should be standing in the front and let both doors loose from your hands the doors should shut inward and firmly if not over adjusted in the final steps. Your model is a nice large model! Here is what one user manual mentioned below.

NOTE: Custom or full-overlay door panels must be installed

before leveling.

1. Open the door and place the level on top of the refrigerator

frame as shown. Check to see whether the refrigerator is level

from left to right.

2. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from left to right.

3. Place the level(s) on shelf or shelves. Check to see whether

the refrigerator is level from front to back.

4. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from front to back.

5. Be sure that all four leveling legs contact the floor and

support the full weight of the refrigerator.

6. Make final check to ensure the refrigerator is level.

Adjust Door Swing

1. Check that the refrigerator door can open freely. If the door

opens too wide or you are installing full-overlay custom

panels using a Trimless Trim Kit, you should adjust the door

swing.

2. Remove the door stop screw from the bottom hinge.

3. Hold the door open to a position that is less than 90°.

4. Replace the door stop screw in the bottom hinge and tighten.

NOTE: If you are using full-overlay custom panels with the

Trimless Trim Kit, the door stop should be replaced in either

the 90° or 110° position. See "Handle and Door Clearances

for Custom Panel Series."

Install Side Panel

If the built-in area depth is 25" (63.5 cm) or more, the side panels

can be installed inside the side trim or attached to the outside of

the side trim.

IMPORTANT: Thermador is not responsible for the removal or

addition of molding or decorative panels that would not allow

access to the refrigerator for service.

1. For the inside side trim piece, slide the front edge of the

routed side panel into the trim piece.

2. Nail the rear edge of the panel to the support board.

A. Level to check left to right leveling

B. Level to check front to back leveling

A. Rear leveling bolt

B. Front leveling bolt

A. Door Stop in 130° position

B. 110° position

C. 90° position

How To Level Refrigerator Doors

When we close the refrigerator door (side-by-side unit) the freezer door pops open slightly. The unit is about 14 months old and the seals look fine.


There is something not fully in place holding the door from closing completely. It doesn't take much. You should be able to feel slight resistance when opening if it is seated properly. The cavities are connected so when you close the door fast the air pressure moves from one to the other and pops the door open.

Frost inside freezer door


there is a small electric heater along the door gasket where you see the frost building up, this heater has apparently stopped working. this will also cause the door to pop open due to a poor seal. feel around where the door gasket contacts the refrigerator and it should feel a little warm. if not then a service company can replace those heaters. should not be too expensive.

look closly at bottom of door there is a metal door stop, screwed to bottom of door, that prevents door from opein too far. Well when the door is forced open too far the door stopbends sdn then actually prevents door from closing all the way, you see it hitting the hinge(if indeed this is your issue), to repair it either simply bend it back staight witha pair of pliers, or what i sometimes do is switch the refrig and freezer door stops.They are identical, but only require the use of one side, (1 stop will do either door just depends on position as to how it operates)
