Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
The refrigerator door (not the freezer door) does not stay closed. It keeps popping open just enough to cause a problem. Is there an adjustment I can make to fix the problem?
Is it closing flush when pushed up or is it not making good contact all around? 2 things can be wrong, the surround needs to be cleaned on the door and fridge and if it still doesn' stick you will need to replace. You can adjust the door slightly at the hinges but only if its loose should you need to. If its tight then it has not shifted and i would focus on the surround clening/replacing first

If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door...
If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.

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

your house may be settling and now the refrigerator needs to be tiloted back slightly. take run the adjusters on the front in a little until the doo closes by it self.
