Greetings,

I have a GE TFX25PRYA and in the last couple of weeks the fridge door started to 'Pop' after it is opened past 90-degrees.

I can see that the door is turning on some type of 'screw' in the top and bottom hinges and the door always 'Pops' at the same point.

Also, once the door 'Pops' after crossing the 90-degree threshhold, it 'Pops' again when it is almost completely closed at about 10 or 20 degrees.

How can I correct this?

Sounds like you need to replace the cam risers under the door that goes on the hinges.  Will need to order them by the modle number.  This is what holds your doors open and closes them.

From what I have seen, I take it that those are the light gray plastic parts I see between the bottom of the fridge door and the polished steel hinge?

Are these plastic parts prone to failure? Are there more durable replacements, considering how much the door weighs in conjunction with the bottles and jars usually stored in the door?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Hummmmmmm, the ones we have seen are black but I suppose they could be any color.  May have to order the hinge and the riser, some are different. Only thing to make them last longer is not to put too much stuff in the doors, making them too heavy.

Helo, my popping friend. I concur with Pegi that you need to replace the door hinge and cam assembly.

Allahu Akbar!

    Moostafa my friend,  Truly you are at one with the force.  As one who routinely repairs refrigerators manufactured by the Great Satan of appliance manufacturers, GE, I agree the part you link to will solve this grasshopper's popping problem.  It is best to correct this now while it is only an annoyance.  When one of those cams breaks in half it could present a door closing problem.  It wouldn't hurt to inspect the door stop before ordering the hinge and cam kit.

"It wouldn't hurt to inspect the door stop before ordering the hinge and cam kit."

Jedi Master,

Can you describe how/where the door stop can be inspected?

Also, thank you all yet again for trouble-shooting this for me.

I made the mistake of calling the "Customer Service" line of the Great Satan of appliance manufacturers and they were very polite and utterly useless.

This is your door stop. It's #12 in Pegi's 1st drawing. It's probably OK, but seeing how you're going to remove it to replace your door cam anyway if it's bent or cracked replace it.
