My LG refrigerator is model LFC25760SW, double door, bottom freezer. When you close one door the other door opens slightly. I think the top latch has weakened. How can I repair this? Are new latches available?

I'd look into the original owners manual that shows how to align the French doors when first purchased. Sounds like heavy usage, or it was improperly put on when you first got it. Try that first, re-align, and tighten the bolts. Last resort is replacing the latches, call the LG customer service center at 1 800 243-0000 for details.

    150.00 to replace the latch which will break again in a few weeks. So, $150.00 per month to keep it or just buy another brand. I would go for another brand!

I have an Estate refrigerator by whirlpool Corporation, model # TT18DKXRQ01 with a 12-07 mfg. date. When you open the refrigerator door, as it closes, the freezer door always opens and closes. Apparently...


I also own a model # TT18DKXRQ01 Estate refrigerator and my freezer door pops open when I close the refrigerator. As you stated, this is caused by the magnet in the freezer gasket not being strong enough to hold. As far as I know, they do not make a stronger freezer gasket but even if they did, it would probably be too costly considering that a standard gasket replacement costs $80.

My solution was to install an adhesive child safety lock on the top of the freezer near the door handle. I purchased the 'Safety 1st Lock Release Fridge Latch' model # HS038 from my local Walmart store for around $5.

You may find this solution to be slightly inconvenient at first but you will get used to it. It sure beats losing food because the freezer door was accidently popped open.

The doors have tabs that push on the switches that turn the light off when the doors are closed. These doors have not been installed properly. I fixed the problem by shimming the bottom door up using washer at the lower hinge rod. Or yo can tape a bit of plastic to the tab on your door so that it makes good contact with the light swutch.

We have a Lg LFC25760SW fridge and the lights stay on in side the fridge


LG had a circuit board malfunction with many french door models with fridge lights staying on with the door closed. the bulb lens usually overheats; deforms; and falls off. the plastic frame surround is warped too. the bulb sockets are darkened too. if this is the case, call LG and they will usually repair this overheating issue for free. you can just unscrew the bulbs for the meantime.

Our side by side freezer door opens slightly


That is a common occurrance for side by side refrigerators. Closing the fresh food door is like having your car windows closed and closing the door. You can feel the air pressure on your ears. In the refrigerator, the air passes through the duct and into the freezer pushing the door open. The magnet on the door gasket should keep it closed. But it may be the freezer door needs the hinges adjusted to the door seats better when closed. Take the plastic cover off the top hinge and you can loosen the screws (don't take them out) and adjust the door slightly (so it looks even between both doors) and tighten the screws up. The top of the door should be level with the top of the unit, and the gap between the doors even the whole way down.

Bottom freezer door opens when top door is open and then closed


the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level

I think I can help. Usuly the doors have been swapped around in this case. look closely at the freezer door on hinge side. there should be a small metal piece that covers the hinge to prevent anything from jamming hinge. this shield also serves as a spacer. this is what sets the door at the correct height. if the piece is missing you can have your local appliance dealer order one for you. it only takes a few minutes ts to install. you will need to remove the freezer door to do this. Hope this helps and good luck.

Top freezer door pops slightly open when frig door is closed


try to adjust hinges and check the door gaskets for pinching. Also I have seen that if the fridge is slightly pitched forward and not slightly towards the back gravity sometimes this causes the problem you describe.

You may have a door alignment problem and requires a qualified LG technician to find the problem.
