    When I close the left door the right side pops open on my Jenn Air JFC2089HES. The fridge is level, the doors are properly aligned, the gaskets are clean and appear to look good.

    Air pressure, when left door is closed fast, is definitely hat causes the right door to open. Is it possible the damper isn't operating properly? Where is it located?

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.

Jenn-air model # JFC2089HES...the freezer door will not open at all..please help


Shut the unit off or unplug it. There's probably ice formed inside preventing the door from opening. Is it frozen shut or can you open it a little? If you can open it a little something may have shifted, if so you may need an expert to come out and take a look

Doors not closing all the way


check level from back to front on fridge if good than check the amount of food that is stored on the door if u have a lot of bulk, weighty stuff they may be acting as a counter balance on the door when u close the left side the air that is trapped usually disperses into the unit and is not forceful enough to push open the door but if their is a lot of additional weight on door it makes the door easier to open and swing on hinge

Side by side jenn aire refrigertor. After six months of use, the right door blows open when closing the left door. I have re leveled to no avail. Any suggestions on the problems


That's not uncommon, but the door should swing back shut. The fridge should be level side to side, but tipped back just a little. This will help the doors close. Also some fridges have door closers on the door hinges. They are usually plastic or nylon and can wear flat. If your fridge has these, the doors will lift just a little (maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch) when it's opened. Usually the fresh food door is bigger and heavier and will wear out closers faster than the freezer door.
