Lower door wont stay closed

The lower door (freezer) seems to lose it's seal and come open as the upper door is closed. It doesn't seal well. The actual door seal appears to be fine and nothing is pushing against the door. I get the impression there is some type of vent in the system that is not working properly?

    We have a top freezer. We had a power outage for about 12 hrs. and when the power returned the freezer door pops open every time the refrigerator door is shut. I've cleaned and dried where they meet but it is like there is only a little magnetic sealing. Up until that happened it was so strong if you tried to reopen the freezer you would have to pull hard.

I doubt it. The problem is probably that the unit is on an uneven or unlevel floor. Make sure all 4 corners are 'solid' and the unit is level. Is the door overloaded? Any hinge damage to either door or loose hardware?

Why Bottom freezer drawer wont stay open


Freezer and refrigerator doors aren't usually supposed to stay open. The units are usually installed so that they're slightly tilted to the back to make sure gravity will close the doors if you forget to. If you are SURE - I mean really SURE - that you want your freezer to stay open you should check the drawer rails to see if they're adjustable; if they are, trying raising the back of the rails (or lowering the front). If the rails are not adjustable, try adjusting the front feet of your fridge so that the front of the whole unit is just a tiny bit lower than it is now. Don't lower it too much! If you do, the doors won't stay closed; they'll leak cold air and you'll lose food.

Freezer door opens when fridge door is closed


that is common, your pushing air back into the other side and that pops the door. First adjust the ref so that the back sits lower than the front. It will have 2 5/16th nuts on the front behind the kickplate. going left will lower the back of the unit. After that get out some vasoline and lube up the flat sides of the door seal, this will help keep the seal moist and it wont pop open as easy

Door needs to be adjusted as it seem to be hanging lower on open


slightly loosen the bolts on the hinges enough to scoot the door into the correct position and it will stay until you tighten the bolts on the hinges. It may take a couple of tries but that is the way to do it until the door seals and closes properly =)

Freezer drawer jars open at upper right corner when refrig door is closed. Air leaks in and is forming frost on frozen food.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

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

Top freezer opens when lower door is shut


This could be the door rubbers, try boiling some water and pour it slowly over the rubber,it would turn soft and wold return to the original state.

now close the door and with a hair dryer set on hot,blow on the rubber untill it seals all over.
let the door stand close for at least 6 ours...

Let me know if it worked..

Good luck.
