Undo the bolt at the bottom of the fridge side and have someone hold the door level, this happened to mine over time and the doors had just became uneven. Level up both doors by refixing the bolts and see if that helps. It did for me.

Re: GE TFX22R side by side door problem
Check your product storage in the door and on the shelves. When you first close the door a negative pressure forms from the contraction of the air. When the pressure equalizes something is causing the door to push open.

this is very normal this means that you have an extremly good seal .. causing air to push threw duct work when closing door .... try changing the levelnes of refrigerator so when door does pop open it falls back closed meaning tilt fridge front higher than back of fridge
Is there any frost build up on the freezer panel? If not, this could be a damper door issue. Check to see if air is coming from the damper, this is the vent inside the back left-corner of the fresh food side, assuming the evap fan is running. If you feel nothing, it more than likely is your damper door.
If you have frost build up, we're talking about a defrost issue then. Let me know!
The GE side by side refrigerator has 2 cams on the bottom hinge that helps shut the door. If the cam wears out then the door will not close properly. One of the cams is riveted to the hinge assembly and an extra cam is shipped with it. The cam assemblies can easily be replaced by using the information on the Partselect.com website that refers to the GE TFX22R refrigerator.
no promblem when you shut one door it forces air to the other side remove the kick plate at the bottom adjust the rollers till the fridge leans back i set them so when you turn loose of the door slightly past the halfway position it shuts its self that way when it pops open it shuts its self
The refrig does not have to be level, as a matter of fact, they tend to work (doors on most refrig's) if the front is a bit higher than the back. If you pop off the lower grill, you will see that the front rollers have a bolt that runs up through the lower frame. Turning on the end of that bolt with a 3/8 inch wrench will allow adjustment of an inch or so, up or down, depending on where it is at now. Only the front rollers are adjustable this way. Back rollers would have to be shimmed to adjust. Check the door hinges to see if the hinge and corresponding hinge cam riser (WR2X4901) are worn. (these parts raise the door slightly as it is opened, and help close the door as the door drops back down when closing.)
Mine has been doing this for over a month. Then on Friday it started making a clicking sound a CONSTANT clicking sound. I get home from a marriage retreat for families getting ready to be deployed and gee ALL my food in the fridge is BAD!!!!
