You're going to need to adjust the hinges on your frig and/or freezer doors. Your cost: $zero. There's one hinge at the top of each door & one at the bottom. The hinges at the top are covered by a triangular shaped piece of plastic that pries up easily with a screwdriver or tack puller - remember to put down a thin piece of cardboard (as from a cereal box) to protect the finish on the appliance. These screws take a 5/16ths inch socket. Check the screws holding the top hinges first, since they're easier to get to. If the hinges on either door are loose, you've found the problem - align the doors so the frig door doesn't also pop open the freezer door and you're done. If the hinges at the top of the doors are secure, then your problem is with one (or both) of the hinges at the bottom - probably best to adjust them after emptying the door(s). These hinges also take a 5/16-in tool, but it'll have to be a combination wrench with a flashlight, and you'll have to lay down on the floor to adjust these hinges.
a couple of problems can cause door problems first open door and check seal for damage [popped off trac or rip-tears]other is hinges worn- bent-loose --if seal is good at top and bottom of door are hinges check for loose if loose tighten -if bushing lookes like a little round washer type is broken or missing replace --needs realignment loosen top hinge and close door and adjust till door is straight and stays closed tighten door hinge done good luck
the door pops open because freezer and frig. are connected together via duct. air pressure builds when you swing ref door closed. apply a small amount of vasoline to the surface of the hinge side of both gaskets. this will aid in door closure. also the unit may be not level
I think I can help. Usuly the doors have been swapped around in this case. look closely at the freezer door on hinge side. there should be a small metal piece that covers the hinge to prevent anything from jamming hinge. this shield also serves as a spacer. this is what sets the door at the correct height. if the piece is missing you can have your local appliance dealer order one for you. it only takes a few minutes ts to install. you will need to remove the freezer door to do this. Hope this helps and good luck.
try to adjust hinges and check the door gaskets for pinching. Also I have seen that if the fridge is slightly pitched forward and not slightly towards the back gravity sometimes this causes the problem you describe.
The top hinge of my Neff integrated fridge freezer has broken so the door won't open and shut properly. As a temporary repair I intend to swop the hinges around -replacing the top hinge with the middle one but can't see how to remove the hinges. Can anyone help?
to be honest with you, close the door more gently. there are air vents between the frig and the freezer, when you close the frig door its forcing air into the freezer which in turn forces the door open some. the air has to get out so thats what it does. i hear this complaint alot.
