it could be a defective damper vent door,( frozen shut from condensation) between the freezer and refrigerator,the motor that opens and closes this door,or a thermistor in the refrigerator that signals the control board in the rear of the unit to operate the damper vent door motor to open and close this door
Adjust the front legs of your refrigerator slightly to raise the
refrigerator. and and store items on the freezer door shelves to add
weight. This is a problem of pneumatics and a testament to how tight
newer refrigerators are. When you close the large refrigerator door it
compresses the air in the refrigerator compartment. Both compartments
are connected by air passages and thus the pressure change is
transferred to the freezer causing the freezer door to pop open.
the front of the refrigerator a tiny bit will help both doors close
from the 90 degree point, which is desirable. Adding weight to the
shelf will just help the process.
An additional aid in
self-closure will be to use vegetable oil on a paper towel to wipe down
the hinge side face of both door seals. All these maneuvers should aid
in causing the door to stay closed and re-close if it should open
slightly. Good Luck
Your pushing air from the fridge part over to the freezer door when you clos it,the only thing i can suggest is make sure that the seal (which is magnetic) is clean and not falling apart,inspect it all around the door,and when closing the door i would close it gently.
Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or for more help go to live chat.Thanks Len West
1. Door seal which should be magnetic is faulty.
2. Ice maker caddy (container) has not socketed properly into ice maker rear drive tang.
3. Door stay closed plastic hing pieces are damaged. These are tapered pieces that fit in hinge area that allow door weight to help close and hold door. Some are black in color and some are white. As far as I know they are interchangeable.
If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.
Before adjusting hinges you need to take a good look across the door from the side to make sure the door is not warped rather than the hinge misaligned. Cannot give much info on hinges but most do not give much adjustment and most can be accessed it is possible that one of the fixings is loose. The other possibility is that the seal is preventing the door from closing, although it does sound as though it is the top hinge not pulled towards the cabinet properly. Sorry to be vague. Hope this is of some help.
