Question about Refrigerators
Freezer door pops ajar when you close the refridgerator door and vice versa.
Normal operation actually, gaskets are designed to seal door closed not to hold them closed, first off check the items on the shelves make sure nothing stick to far out preventing good closing.next the refrig should be tilted slightly back. to aid in the doors swinging closed( the should close automatically form 45 degrees.)ok for them to "pop" open so long as they close back shut. this works on top freezers and bottomr freezer refigs, sidex sides use a differnet system of closing, if htats the case look into replacing door closures(cams) located under hte door assy

It almost sounds as if the magnetic gaskets aren't as they should be.
Most all combination units have a path between the two parts of them to allow circulation of air, the amount or rato of which, is controlled by an adjustment that really just makes a duct larger or smaller so temperatures can be balanced to fall within the range needed by each.
Check to see if, when closed slowly, the gasket surfaces are parallel to the steel of the housing.
If not, there is normally a little adjustment possible at the hinge mountings.
