Question about Refrigerators
Our Amana TX18L, serial #9812235114 refrigerator door opens on its own if it is pushed shut and also opens when you close the freezer door. I have had to put a child clip on the freezer as this was happening there too and will purchase one for the fridge although these are a pain. Do you think the seals need replacing or is it air pressure problem. There is nothing blocking/pushing on the doors at all. Thanks for any help you can give me.
There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

had same exact problem - followed advice for fixing same problem in similar refrig. took of the back panel off the freezer section - 8 hex head screws - and found the cooling fins all frosted over.

hi tanks for the question there are heaters at the spots you said were hot and those heaters are there to prevent moist air from hitting cold surface and create warer droplets from forming on those surfaces i would remove the back of the fridge and vacuum it out that should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc
