My counter depth refrigerator hits the corner of the countertop when the door swings all the way open, marking up the stainless steel door. Do you have any suggestions for preventing this? Maybe a creative way to stop the door from opening all the way? I thought about putting something on the edge of the countertop, but even rubber could cause denting.

No, the door is foamed together.
Remove small drip catch at bottom of dispenser area. Use silicone to seal recess along front edge and the two front corners. That should prevent water from getting under the door trim.
no. depth is measured from the back of the box to the front of the box but does not include the handles. The depth of the cabinet is used to determine if the doors will open sufficiently to clear countertops and half walls or appliances. Also helps determine if enough space will be available to open doors in small kitchens such as "c" shape, "L" shape or narrow galley kitchens. for small kitchens, the best frig is a side by side. The doors are smaller and less swing space is needed. A 25 cubic foot side by side uses less swing space then a 15 cubic foot single door. If you are worried about depth, you can also get a counter depth frig which will stick out past your countertops by about 2 inches rather then 8-10 inches with a standard frig. standard depth is about 28-36 inches from the back wall when plugged in. Handles get in the way most often in width measurements because they prevent the doors from swinging past 90 degrees if located next to a wall.
if your talking about the damper vent door motor,it is behind the vent grille where the damper vent is and is controlled by the refrigerator temp adjustment control,sometimes these doors freeze open or shut from condensation,if this is the case take a hand held hair dryer and thaw and dry out door and hinges and then try adjusting temp asnd see if the door opens and closes now
