Question about Jenn-Air JFC2089HE French Door Refrigerator
Hi, you need to replace the seal on that side of the door due to it being worn. The easiest way to replace the seal is to lift the seal up from the inside and you can see the little bolts (1/4 inch head) on the inside. These bolts run through a metal strip that in turn holds the seal down. Once you loosen (do not remove) these bolts you can pull slightly and the seal will come out from the metal flashing strip holding it down. Look at the seal and you will notice a small hump where it sat on the inside of the hump on the metal flashing when you see it you'll understand what I mean. Once the older seal is removed the new seal is ready for replacement. Hint: If you let the new seal sit out in the sun for an hour or so it will become soft and pliable and much easier to work with.
Reinstallation is just the opposite of removal.
To make sure you get the correct seal take the model and serial numbers to a appliance parts house and they should have one for replacement.

A main problem with refrigerator doors is a simple fix, and it's in the leveling of the unit. Make sure the fridge is level first off.
Another problem I've seen is that when the doors are closed fast, the air is forced through the damper to the refrigerator side, and that pressure can jar the right door open.
Another tech said (in this site's answers) that a lot of heavy food items in the door can effect the balance, and allow the door to open too easily, so that may be part of the problem.
I couldn't find any information on the magnetic door latches, but they might be fixed, or adjustible, so you might check into that.
Aside from these things, not sure what else it could be, unless the unit has weak magnetic latches.
Good luck to you, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
