Freezer Door Won't Stay Shut

The freezer door won't stay completely shut. If I don't carefully and slowly push the door completely shut, it will open up a couple of millimeters. Whenever I close the refrigerator door, the jarring will cause the freezer door to open up a couple of millimeters. I have made sure than nothing is blocking the door and wiped the gasket clean. The freezer door never seems like it has closed as tightly as the refrigerator side, but not staying closed is a new problem. My best guess is the magnets in the gasket are not strong enough, but that seems a little far fetched. On the other hand, it definitely doesn't stick closed like the other door. Any ideas?

    Same problem. When we close the fridge just a bit too hard, the freezer pops open (just a bit...enough to where you barely notice it...ahh!). Any suggestions?

    The doors are like they lock open then you have to push to close all the way,, no free swinging at all.

My freezer door was left open for several days while I was out of town


YES, unplug it and open the doors, let it completely defrost (inside and out) store all your food in coolers or through it out. Then when you plug it in all SHOULD be okay again.

Doors won't stay closed!


Frost in the rear of freezer possibly caused by door staying open.  Door staying open possibly caused by frost buildup on ref door track.  Start by making sure the teeth on the freezer track are clear of ice and frost.  This should allow you to shut the freezer door.  Next check the freezer seal.  If it is not completely sealed it it will build up frost. It is also possible that the frost in the rear of the freezer is from a failure in the defrost cycle as the evap coils are at the back of the freezer. If this is the case your refrigerator is probably getting warmer.

Door on Monogram ZIR36N won't pull closed and stay shut


The spring is actually a door closure , are the wheels that the bar closure mechanism goes through and attaches to the spring moving freely? It is entirely possible that a bin in the fridge is keeping the door open.

Sub-zero 500 series refrigerator door wont stay closed


If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door... If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.

Freezer door won't stay shut


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.

Sub-zero 550 reefridgerator top freezer bottom - refridgerator door not staying closed


Just a guess, but I would check the gasket on the door. They can go bad or get distorted and bunch up and cause the door to bind and not close properly. Also check that the fridge is leveled properly. Will the door close if pushed? Will it stay closed?
