Freezer door opens when fridge door is shut

We have a two door LG refrigerator, Model No GN422FW. When we shut the fridge door the freezer door opens up. We have had the refrigerator for 2 years and it has only just started doing this. Any ideas? we have an extended warranty but have been told that if it's a design flaw then we will have to pay an $80 service charge + $90 per hour service + parts.

This is a typical occurance with these unit it has alot lot do do with the the air volume in the fridge and some times how fast the doors are being closed there is no place for the air to escape so it is pushed throught the freezer compartment.
you can try and clean out your drain holes to your drain pan this will give the air a place to go.even if it a design flaw it sould not cost you any money,because it would be a factory defect and the manufacture would replace the unit.this is something that may go away all by itself

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.

freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hopr this helps good luck ron

LG fridge/freezer rumbling/vibrating sound


Check your defrost components. The fan is hitting the frost buildup and will shut off when the door is opened so as to not circulate the warm air. The heater or the timer is not doing a proper defrost cycle.
