The freezer door pops open when the refrigerator door is closed.


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.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.
Regards, Tony

Bottom freezer door opens when top door is open and then closed


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

Refrigerator top freezer door slightly rubs to inside freezer bottom while closing the door that opens on right side. Due to this after closing the freezer door, the door opens less than a mm near the left...


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.

Top freezer door pops slightly open when frig door is closed


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.

Freezer door opens just a tiny bit when i shut the fridge side anybody know how to fix this


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.
