There is often adjustment on the hinges. Loosen them and see if your can nudge it in, then re-tighten the screws.

Sometimes they are buttbound, the hinge side is too tight, which pushes out the opening edge.

SOURCE: Side by side GE profile freezer door pops open

It almost sounds as if the magnetic gaskets aren't as they should be.

Most all combination units have a path between the two parts of them to allow circulation of air, the amount or rato of which, is controlled by an adjustment that really just makes a duct larger or smaller so temperatures can be balanced to fall within the range needed by each.

Check to see if, when closed slowly, the gasket surfaces are parallel to the steel of the housing.
If not, there is normally a little adjustment possible at the hinge mountings.

SOURCE: freezer door wont seal and stay closed

Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

SOURCE: side by side freezer door pops open

This is a problem inherent with lots of refrigerators. Side by side or top freezer. The rush of air pops the doors. You might want to adjust the pitch of the box by adjusting the front wheels to a higher level.

Frigidaire freezer is cooling properly, the fridge part is warm


Hello Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand the freezer of your Frigidaire refrigerator is properly cooling but the refrigerator side is warm. May I have your model number please? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is normally located inside the cabinet, on the left/right side wall. With this information I can better determine the underlying cause.

In the meantime, I suggest checking that the door gasket is properly sealing. Place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing.

Thank you! - Z

Freezer Door


There is usually some adjustment on the hinges. Your is termed buttbound, the door at the hinges is too close so it makes the door pop open. Take everything out of the inside door shelves if there are any. Slacken the mounting screws a little and pull the door away from the frame, make sure it sites square and tight, and then tighten up the mounting screws. With a freezer, i would also suggest fully defrosting it first.

When I close my side x side frig the freezer door pops open


This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.

My freezer has condensation inside


Hi - From what you have described it sounds like the freezer has a poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit.

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 :)

I think I can help. Usuly the doors have been swapped around in this case. look closely at the freezer door on hinge side. there should be a small metal piece that covers the hinge to prevent anything from jamming hinge. this shield also serves as a spacer. this is what sets the door at the correct height. if the piece is missing you can have your local appliance dealer order one for you. it only takes a few minutes ts to install. you will need to remove the freezer door to do this. Hope this helps and good luck.

Freezer door wont stay closed.


If you can pull the freezer drawer out, check to see if there is anything on the floor of the freezer. You can also try reinstalling the drawer. When you take the drawer out make sure that the spring loaded door catches on the sides are facing towards you. That is if it has any.

Neff side by side


Someone left the door slightly open. Cold weather has nothing to do with it. To check the seal take a dollar bill and place it in the jam hanging onto part of it close the door on the bill and then pull it. It should be tightly fit when you pull on the bill. Is the unit a refer or freezer? Is it inside or out.
