QUESTION:  When I open the refrigerator door and close it the other side door pops open very briefly

then shuts itself. Is this normal?


ANSWER:     According to laws of physics, when opening one of the French door refrigerator door then

closing it, the movement in pushing it closed draws ambient air inside creating pressure. As the inside

cabinet is not expandable the extra pressured air must be expelled. Since the door just being opened

and closed is being pushed inward and nothing is holding back the other door the extra pressured air is

just enough to push the other door open very briefly the time for the air to escape. It is normal and you

should not be alarmed.
