SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE DOORS VERY HARD TO OPEN

The doors on my new Whirlpool side by side are so hard to open that today (we just got it yesterday) the handle broke when I tried to open the freezer. It isn't hard to open every time, just some times. What gives????

Its because the door seals are new and are working correctly. The pressure difference between the warm outside and the cold inside cause a sort of vaccum and so makes it hard to open. It is usually only after the door has been closed a while that it will be hard to open. put your finger around the edge of the door and shift the seal slightly, this will release the vaccum and let the door open normally. It will get better after a few weeks. I have had 2 whirlpools also and this has been the same on both of mine.

The hot temperature that occurs in the fridge body is normal and you have nothing to worry. It is the result of the heat pumps during a normal operation. Once the fridges reaches the normal temperature it will automatically shuts off and the hotness of the body will disappear.

Good day,
There is a complete warranty on the machine and cabinet for the first 12 months. The selling dealer should supply you with a free warranty service call.
There are variences allowed for such things by the manufacturer, but they should make you whole.
Contact the dealer first.
