Re: french doors

The french doors on top are not closing as smoothly as when new. The alignment of the left door appears to be high and it hits middle support. George

Re: french doors

There is a drain in the bottom of the box to allow water to run out into the pan under the unit. Sounds like it is plugged up causing air pressure to be able to build when you shut either door.

The freezer door pops open when the side by side doors are closed.

I have this problem with another French Door refrigerator. We just put a stool in front of the lower drawer to prevent it from opening when the upper doors are shut.

I know this may sound kind of like a simple idea, but it works without modifying the refrigerator.

Good luck on this.

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 :)

When I shut the left door the right door pops open, it is always open.... I need it to stay shut

put some heavy stuff on the door like soda or water bottles,also wash around the frame where the door gasket touches the fridge and wash the gasket too, there are magnets inside the gasket and if there's anything on the frame it could stop the gasket from making a good seal,how old is the fridge?what shape is the gasket in?if it's torn or lost it's shape it should be replaced.most likely you might just have to get some weight on the door to stop it from popping open

French doors - when you close one side the other pops open especially when the door is closed hard

This is normal operation,the new units are very efficient and air tight so when you close one door especially hard you are forcing air into the inside that has to escape somewhere therefor it forces the door that is stationary open just enough for the air to escape,as long as the door closes back afterward you have no problem if the door opens and swings out,then you would have a leveling problem the fridge would be leaning too far to the front.

Right door pops ajar open when left side is shut

you need to replace the seal on that side of the door due to it being worn. The easiest way to replace the seal is to lift the seal up from the inside and you can see the little bolts (1/4 inch head) on the inside. These bolts run through a metal strip that in turn holds the seal down. Once you loosen (do not remove) these bolts you can pull slightly and the seal will come out from the metal flashing strip holding it down. Look at the seal and you will notice a small hump where it sat on the inside of the hump on the metal flashing when you see it you'll understand what I mean. Once the older seal is removed the new seal is ready for replacement. Hint: If you let the new seal sit out in the sun for an hour or so it will become soft and pliable and much easier to work with.
Reinstallation is just the opposite of removal.
To make sure you get the correct seal take the model and serial numbers to a appliance parts house and they should have one for replacement.

Good Luck on your repairs hope this helped

Bottom drawer does not properly close

Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).
