Good day,
The cam assembly on the bottom of the door has broken.
Common problem. With the complete make, and model number, go to any appliance parts house that sells parts for your brand. They'll know what you need.
To replace, remove all food from the door. Remove the top bracket of the door, and lift the door off. Replace defective parts, and re-assemble.

The refrigerator door on the right hand side is making a noise everytime you open it. What do I do to fix the problem?

The hinge on the door has nylon cam inserts that "lift" the door as you open it. One of these cams is worn or broken.

Try defrosting it for a day or 2, could be ice build up on the coils, just empty it, unplug and leave the door open, have something handy to wipe the water up with as it thaws out.

Right Door is making loud popping noise

After reading these posts, I fixed my refrigerator door in less than 5 minutes. The little black plastic cam on the bottom hinge was loose. To fix it, take the hinge cover off of the top with an 8mm socket, and remove the three 8mm screws holding the top hinge on. Remove the door by lifting up off of the bottom hinge and set it aside. On the bottom hinge is a black plastic cam held on by an 8mm screw. The screw on mine was really loose. Tightening it and putting the door back on made it work like new. You probably don't have a bad cam, just a loose one.

Bottom hinge on fridge door broken

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.
