How can I keep my refridgerator door shut?
The appliance is quite old but is in an integrated unit so would be hard to change. We replaced the seal last year. Now the door keeps opening itself, just a centimeter or so,even when we close it carefully. Any advice would be great!
Try applying petroleum jelly along the face of the seals. Just a thin smear should do the trick.
In college, the fridge door would remain open so I dragged a chair over and leaned the back against the door. No more cold air escaping.
It might be because your appliance is leaning. If you prop the front feet up just a tiny amount it should lean it back enough to let gravity keep it closed.
Thanks for the answers here. I don't usually answer my own question, but there's a first time for everything. The petroleum jelly worked for a couple of days, but sadly the magic wore off. Our fridge seemed to be on a level. Then my husband thought of buying a safety lock from a children and baby store. Bingo! For very little money, the lock keeps the door tightly closed. It's a minor nuisance, but risking food poisoning is a major nuisance, so I'm pleased with the result.

If someone believed in a creator, after some visceral meditation - as in, all text aside towards the same belief a primitive human could accept after seeing some natural disaster - is acceptance of this creator coupled with entitled gratitude? This can be exemplified by replacing humans with a...
