That's not uncommon, but the door should swing back shut. The fridge should be level side to side, but tipped back just a little. This will help the doors close. Also some fridges have door closers on the door hinges. They are usually plastic or nylon and can wear flat. If your fridge has these, the doors will lift just a little (maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch) when it's opened. Usually the fresh food door is bigger and heavier and will wear out closers faster than the freezer door.

Doors not closing all the way


check level from back to front on fridge if good than check the amount of food that is stored on the door if u have a lot of bulk, weighty stuff they may be acting as a counter balance on the door when u close the left side the air that is trapped usually disperses into the unit and is not forceful enough to push open the door but if their is a lot of additional weight on door it makes the door easier to open and swing on hinge

JENN AIRE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR IS NOT COOLING ON THE REFRIGERTOR SIDE


this is a thermocouple failure I would think and they will need replacing. it could also be the damper valve that lets cool air into the fridge, I would think this is working and the fan that blows air in is failing because of the thermocouples, thermocouples are quite cheap.

Side by side freezer door pops open


This is a problem inherent with lots of refrigerators. Side by side or top freezer. The rush of air pops the doors. You might want to adjust the pitch of the box by adjusting the front wheels to a higher level.

Ice Dispenser "Flapper" is loose--How does it reattach?


the plastic arms that move the flapper door open and closed are broken. I had this happen to me some months back. You will need to buy a repair kit from your local dealer. Explain what is broken and they can look up their part/kit number. You can't buy just the plastic door. Mine cost about $30 but was worth the price of getting my ice maker dispenser operating again. Very minor mechanics required to open this portion of the mechanism. Mostly some removal of screws and a spring or two. Good luck.

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.
