Question about Kenmore 62832 / 62834 / 62839 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore - over under

Model: 795.75019401

Serial #: 409MRVB00095

When I close the (top) refrigerator door, the (bottom) freezer door pops open. The bottom door may close or it may stay open.

Inside the freezer, on the back wall, behind the ice cube maker, ice has built up. Perhaps one inch thick. Might it block an air vent ? Would a simple defrosting resove this problem ? Please advise. Thank you.

Adjust the feet to raise the front of the frige, which should be higher than the back. Therefore the weight of the door will keep it shut or at least cause it to shut itself if it pops open.

The bottom freezer door on my Kenmore refrigerator 795.7900 pops open each time I close the top door. I have tried adjusting the leveling screws and it hasn't helped. Any suggestions?


Glen you keep adjusting but before that try to find this unusual problem. On its own, doesthe freezer door close witha thud? If not it needs adjustment otherwise other problems could surface.

If your refrigerator is fairly new, the seals probably are OK. More likely, the door alignment has to be adjusted.

GE refrigerator model #LTC19340ST freezer door not sealing


That is a common problem with over-under units. You can clean or replace the door seal or, tilt the unit back a TINY bit. The door pops open because there is a common airway from the freezer to the fridge. When the fridge door shuts too fast, it pushes a lot of air into the unit. It needs to go somewhere so, it pops the freezer door open. If you shut the freezer hard enough, you will be able to pop the fridge door open.

I don't have the exact model number of my refrigerator before me, but whenever I close the refrigerator door, the freezer door pops open.


That's normal. Don't shut it so hard. The only thing you can do to remedy this, is to replace the doorseals but, that's a pain, especially if they aren't very worn.

Bottom freezer popping open on its own


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.
