Question about Refrigerators
This is a new unit. At the store, the (empty) floor model refrigerator doors were not hard to open. Our unit takes a gorilla grip to open. I can see the stress this is putting on our plastic door handles. This is not right. What can I adjust? Is this a service call?
My husband, an engineer, fixed this problem after a service visit did nothing to fix the hard to open door problem. He duct taped a small section of a straw (about 4 inches) to the inside top of the door frame so that one end of the straw was inside of the fridge and the other end was on the outside. It doesn't even show. Voila! Pressure released and it's worked great ever since!!

I just talked with a refrigerator repair man. He said the super suction was a problem for 2006 to 2009 models which tried to be super energy efficient. He gets a lot of complaints. Anyway he echoed the straw advice above, except he advised taping a coin on the seal. I like the straw idea better. I will see if it works.
