1st ckeck that nothing is sticking out just far enough to pop the door open.if not that, than the gaskets can were out on frig doors , you can order it on line from all appliances, get the model # from inside the frig , be patient installing it , its tricky, but it can be done by Harry homeowner. good luck.
You're going to need to adjust the hinges on your frig and/or freezer doors. Your cost: $zero. There's one hinge at the top of each door & one at the bottom. The hinges at the top are covered by a triangular shaped piece of plastic that pries up easily with a screwdriver or tack puller - remember to put down a thin piece of cardboard (as from a cereal box) to protect the finish on the appliance. These screws take a 5/16ths inch socket. Check the screws holding the top hinges first, since they're easier to get to. If the hinges on either door are loose, you've found the problem - align the doors so the frig door doesn't also pop open the freezer door and you're done. If the hinges at the top of the doors are secure, then your problem is with one (or both) of the hinges at the bottom - probably best to adjust them after emptying the door(s). These hinges also take a 5/16-in tool, but it'll have to be a combination wrench with a flashlight, and you'll have to lay down on the floor to adjust these hinges.
the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level
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
I have the exact same problem - very annoying. The only thing I found to work was to purchase one of those child safety locks. I bought the Kidco Appliance Fridge Lock S330 because it was the only one I could find that automatically relocks after you shut the door. Buy two (or more) at a time because the arm will eventually wear out and break (after several months depending on how often you use it). You can check out the product's details on eBay - that's where I purchased mine. Hope that helps.
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!!!!
My model number is ssh25kfrfww Please give yours. Also my door NEVER locked from day one. As my children are older I didnt think it was a big issue till today.
