Fridge door does not

OUr fridge door (Kitchenaid KSSS42QJXOO) does not have a tight seal. If you push it shut it pops open a hair. If you push shut the freezer door, it causes the fridge door to pop open a hair? I have cleaned the gasket around the door -- any other ideas?? Maybe double side sticky tape??(just kidding)

    The fridge door, does not shut...when you close the freezer the fridger door will pop open about 1/4 of an inch. If you don't physically make sure you close the door and press hard, it will open about 11/4 inch. Any help as to what I need to replace or tricks to try would be helpful. Freezer is on top...kenmore

GE refrigerator model #LTC19340ST freezer door not sealing


That is a common problem with over-under units. You can clean or replace the door seal or, tilt the unit back a TINY bit. The door pops open because there is a common airway from the freezer to the fridge. When the fridge door shuts too fast, it pushes a lot of air into the unit. It needs to go somewhere so, it pops the freezer door open. If you shut the freezer hard enough, you will be able to pop the fridge door open.

Door not closing properly


Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff

Fridge door pops back open


The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.

Freezer door won't stay shut


I have the exact same problem - very annoying. The only thing I found to work was to purchase one of those child safety locks. I bought the Kidco Appliance Fridge Lock S330 because it was the only one I could find that automatically relocks after you shut the door. Buy two (or more) at a time because the arm will eventually wear out and break (after several months depending on how often you use it). You can check out the product's details on eBay - that's where I purchased mine. Hope that helps.

Doors not sucking closed


This is not a fault but it is a design problem that cannot be resolved, the problem occurs because between the fridge and the freezer there is an air duct to allow the freezer air to be blown into the fridge however when you close the fridge door this forces the air back into the fridge, the result is that it is forced into the air duct and pressurises the freezer or visa versa and pops the door open to allow the compressed air to escape. soory no cure to this one.

Freezer door won't stay shut


Could be the air pressure created from shutting the refer door is popping open the other one. There are are channels between the two so cool air from the freezer gets to the refer compartment. Try this as a test... s l o w l y close the refer door and see if that keeps the other door from popping open. If that works then it's likely an air channel is frozen up somewhere and you may need to turn the unit off for a day or so to let it thaw out. Moisture from leaking door seals, or doors that were left slightly open overnight can be sucked in and freeze up the air channels. I don't know if you are sort of slamming the door shut or not but the doors need to be shut slowly due to how air tight the new refers are.
