Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

When Closing either the freezer door or the refrigerator door it seem the air pressure causes the opposite door to open slightly; however, the door is forced open enough to cause the unit to gain temperature (become warmer)and if unnoticed will cause frozen food to defrost and/or food to spoil on the refrigerator side.

Hello Frank:
What i would suggest that you do first is to make sure that the door seals are in good working order. If the seals feel stiff this is a sign that they are worn out and need replacement. a good door seal will be fairly flexiable and not hard ok
If they are dirty or If there is any oil residue on either surfcace this will cause the doors not to stay shut so look at this too
Also make sure that the door is closing properly and is not binding up on anything make any adjustments that you feel is nessasary
And finaly make sure that the refrigerator is level ok
I hope that this has been very helpful for you ok

This is normal operation on many new systems as they are very efficient and air tight so when you close one door especially hard you are forcing air into the inside that has to escape somewhere therefore it forces the door that is already closed to open just enough for the air to escape and the pressure is equalised As long as the door closes back correctly afterwards there will not be a problem. If the door opens and remains open however then the compartment will warm up and the door alarm should be triggered. To solve this you will need to adjust the levelling of the unit by raising up the front of the unit or lowering the back of the unit until the doors close by themselves.

Our French Door model after almost 2 yrs pops open the one door after closing the other, and it doesn't set off the door alarm because it doesn't pop it open far enough to trigger the alarm. This causes the temp to rise when we don't realize when we closed the one door the other opened on it's own.


We solved this problem by replacing the plastic parts on the top & bottom of the door that 'latch' the door closed. On the top of each door is a white plastic 'cam' that latches into a receiver at the center point of the refrigerator ... LG LRFD25850 French Door Refrigerator

At first we though the freezer or refrigerator door had been left open. Ice was melting and dripping in freezer, food was thawed out, but the temperature in the freezer still indicated it was zero +/- 2 degrees F. We set the door alarm to see if we could determine when it was being left open. We dumped the ice and initiated quick ice function. Good ice was made and temp in the freezer returned to normal for a few days, then the ice began to melt again. We pulled the refrigerator away from the wa

I have an Estate refrigerator by whirlpool Corporation, model # TT18DKXRQ01 with a 12-07 mfg. date. When you open the refrigerator door, as it closes, the freezer door always opens and closes. Apparently the magnetic gasket is not strong enough to keep the door from opening. I had to throw away 3-4 garbage bags of food due to the freezer defrosting overnight. We think due to the freezer door opening so easily that something that was stored in the door of the freezer fell down when we opened the

I have a LBC22518ST refrig. The prob is that the seal on the freezer door has stopped being very effective. When closing the top portion, it causes the freezer door to lose its seal and open open slightly. I hadn't noticed until I found freezer items unfrozen. The door doesn't pop open enough to cause the alarm to sound. I bought it 2 years ago.

I have LG Bottom Freezer Refrigerator for 5 years. I noticed that yesterday that a funny motor sound came from the back of the refrigerator. When I open the refrigerator or freezer door, the sound would stop, but whenever I open either door, the sound would resume. I even vacuumed the bottom of the refrigerator in case the dust is causing the problem, but the same sound persists. What is wrong with my refrigerator? What can I do to fix it?

I have an LG GR T452ZV refrigerator (top freezer). Its also called Express Cool Turbo. Yesterday, we accidentally left the main fridge door open for more than 8 hours. after we realise it, we found the refrigerator no longer cold. Could it be co-incedental that the gas had run out or could it be caused by the door being opened? The door has been closed for more than 8 hours now but the fridge is still not cold.

Hi,I bought a fisher and paykel refrigerator E450r model for over 2 yrs now. Once you open the door, you can hear a beep sound. You can also hear this sound while the door is open and even when the door is closed. The number of beeps is around 19 from opening door till the door is closed. I think this is a fault alarm problem as per the manual. Is this really needs to be fixed asap? Thanks. Mrs Lubid.
