LG Side by Side freezer door popping open

I have an LG Side by Side and the freezer door will open when the refrigerator door is closed. Any ideas?

That's actually a very common problem on most fridges. Since they use a combined cold air supply system there is an air channel open between the fridge and freezer.

You can do one of two things or both. Make sure the fridge is tipped slightly back. This way if the door does pop slightly it will re-close by itself.

The other thing is to apply a very thin coating of Vaseline on the door gaskets. This will keep the gasket a little softer and offer a better seal. You could try just the freezer door first.
