Hi,

This is caused by an overheating condenser. The coils below the refrigerator are either dusty and dirty or the fan down there has stopped running. See the link below for more details on this and how to check the fan. Let me know if it was helpful.

Why the freezer door opens when the refrigerator is closed?


I have a refrigerator with a top freezer that was constantly popping open, just enough to let the heat in and melt anything inside. This can also cause heavy frost build up from condensing humidity in the air. The frost can build up on the front face of the fridge where it meets the magnetic gasket on the door making it even harder to keep the freezer closed.
The cause in my case was that slamming the refrigerator door sent a puff of air through the ductwork to the freezer above. The sudden pressure increase popped the freezer door open and the door wasn't heavy enough to close on its own. Since this is a beer fridge in my garage I fixed it by putting a stick on childproof latch from H-D on the freezer door. :-)
If this was our main fridge indoors, I would first check to see how much force it takes to open the freezer vs. the refrigerator section. It should be about the same. If not, check the freezer door gasket to be sure no food or ice is built up on it and that the mating surface is clean. Check that the door is closing parallel to the mating surface. A misalignment would make it hard for the gasket to seal or stay sealed. Adjust hinges if necessary. If all seems ok, check to see if the fridge is level or possibly needs to be adjusted so it tilts back just a bit to make the doors self closing and not fighting gravity to stay closed. If all else fails, inspect the door gasket to be sure it isn't broken or stiffened with age. Inspect the bottom of the door gasket with a mirror. I once had a side by side with what looked like a good gasket until I felt around the bottom of the door. Replace if necessary.

Candy fridge freezer the fridge part keeps icing up on the back of thr compartment why is this


Sounds to me like the door gasket is faulty and letting moisture into the fridge section,the ice is the moisture freezing once it gets inside and it will accumulate in the coldest part of the fridge(probably the back of the fridge)cause thats where the freezer air inters the fridge section, change the door gasket and it should be fine.

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.

Fridge not cold


I think that I have a solution. Refridgerator side not cooling.
I read in the blogs that holding down the top two bottons(power cool & fridge) at the same time resets the refridgerator control panel.

I may have caused the problem by leaving the door open. If my above solution does not work, then I will defrost the frefrigerator just in case the coils are froze up. It works with my air conditioner.

Frost inside freezer door


there is a small electric heater along the door gasket where you see the frost building up, this heater has apparently stopped working. this will also cause the door to pop open due to a poor seal. feel around where the door gasket contacts the refrigerator and it should feel a little warm. if not then a service company can replace those heaters. should not be too expensive.

Possibly something was spilled and it got to the door gasket. Clean the door gasket area with warm soapy water. In the door there is nothing critical to the system operation that should cause the condition you have.

Concaved out freezer door


If concave is severe you will have to replace door. You can try to alleviate a slight gap by using a hairdryer and blowing hot air on the gasket in the area of the gap....move the dryer in up and down motions and the gasket will expand! Just make sure that there is no ice pressing against the door inner first! Oshie
