'Nother problem, same fridge
if you close the door, after two or three seconds there is a slight vacuum in the fridge that lasts about 15 seconds. With a steady pull on the door handle the vacuum releases and then the door is easily opened, as expected. Or if you open it again immediately there is no resistance.
Is there a vacuum release valve somewhere that's bad?
We've never had a fridge like this and I can't remember if it did this from day one.
I can't imagine why, firstly, there is a vacuum, and then why it releases. Something is equalizing the outside and inside pressure but what would it be?
With a door area of two or three sq ft. this doesn't have to be much of a pressure difference.
