GE Side by Side Fridge Door Adjustment

I have a GE Profile side by side. When the fridge door swings opens more than 90 degrees, it flies open to a full 180 degrees and crashes into the counter to the right of the fridge. My kids do this all day long and I'm sure its neither good for the fridge or the counter, much less my nerves.

My guess is there is an adjustment to the door that would prevent this, however I cannot find any information on adjusting the door swing in the manual.

Thanks,

Most refrigerators do not have anything to prevent the door from opening all the way. To minimize this , adjust the front leveling legs up enough so the door won't stay open by itself. The refrigerator doesn't have to be level, it just should not rock. Most are adjusted this way to let the door shut itself. This should help. If this doesn't work. make a strap with small chain or seat belt type material. Attach from the bottom of the door. Make it just long enough to not let the door open past 90 degrees.

Check if it is still under warranty - I think that it is usually 2 years.

When in this condition, was the compressor still running ?
There was one issue that occurred occasionally on some models - the fridge door has a height adjustment so you can level the 2 doors up. Sometimes, it drops a bit too much, and on models with the fridge door light switch on the top (not the side), it meant that it wasn't turning off the light. Some have 2 lamps (commonly 40W or more each), so you effectively have 80Watts or more of heating running constantly. If your (exact) model has the door switch on the side, this is Unlikely to be the issue.

If the compressor was not running, I could say something like "it might have got stuck in a defrost cycle", but this DOESN'T really fit with the operation of these fridges (no defrost elements in the fridge side).
Does this help in any way ??

My GE profile side by side refrigerator's temperature is not staying where I put it. It keeps popping to 31 degrees when I set it for 37 degrees. My food is freezing !!


It may need to defrost. Shut it off for 4-5 hours to let any accumulated ice to defrost and see what happens.

There also is a control that directs more cooling to the refridgerator or the freezer compartment. It may need to be readjusted. It will take 24 hours to stabilize.

GE Side by Side Frig Door Flies Open to Far


Look under the front of the fridge, should be some adjustments to raise and lower the wheels or feet for leveling. Level it with a level on the top, should help keep the doors from swinging.

Help! My GE Profile Arctica runs 24 hours a day...sounds like a fan. It stops when either door is opened, then starts as soon as the door closes. The temps on either side are higher than what they are set...


It is normal operation for ARTICA fans to run continuosly except when the door is open. If the door remains open for 3 minutes the fans will run anyway.
The temperature will vary about 6 -8 degrees from the selected temperature. The temperature will increase during a defrost cycle.
I do not believe you have a problem.

On my GE Profile side by side the Fridge side the door will close and then pop open. The door has been making a clicking sound when opened. When it pops open it does not close again.


This can happen if the door gasket is not seating properly. If it is deformed you can correct this by pouring boiling water along the deformed area, then closing the door and keeping it closed while the gasket cools and sets. Please check first that it has been correctly installed, there are screws and a bracket behind the gasket. Another problem could be the alignment of the door. It is possible to adjust alignment on the hinges. One other thing is to raise the front "feet" so that the fridge slightly leans backwards.

There is an internal door between the fridge and freezer section that allows the freezer air to enter the fridge side to keep the fridge cold. Sounds like the internal door is stuck open. Steve
