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.
That is normal.
When we let warmer room air in and this air meets the cold air a vacuum is created and sucks the door closed. Once the warmer air cools down the less suction we get.

Thanks.
It's strange we've never noticed it before, with any fridge. It seems to be less so when you pull out the freezer drawer but that door is smaller than the upper fridge door.
