I recently purchased a new Samsung RT49H567ESL 481 L Double Door Refrigerator.
The fridge works perfectly in all aspects except that the refrigerator door forms a very tight seal. However the freezer door opens without any hassle anytime.
The refrigerator door opens freely if I keep the freezer door open. Hence, it seems like vacuum formation inside the fridge.
However if I open any of the door and close it, the refrigerator door becomes way too tight for a few minutes. So tight that I am sure in a matter of few months, the door handle would definitely come off.
Note that all my relatives and friends who opened my fridge twice in succession asked me why the heck it is so tight. That should give you a fair idea. Its slightly tight even when I open it the first time after a few minutes.
Note that there is some water collection inside the tray on top of the compressor, however am sure the fridge isnt drawing any air from the drain when I open the refrigerator or the freezer door.
A samsung service engineer came home and just couldnt figure out what the problem was, though he agreed the door was tight. This is a nice fridge and I dont want to return it and buy from a different brand if the problem can be fixed.
Isnt there supposed to be some kind of pressure equilizing valves in an expensive fridge like this? Or did I just get a bad piece that needs fixing?
