I have a two year old Sears refrigerator with a freezer compartment on
the bottom. In the past couple of weeks the magnets holding the
freezer door closed are not longer effective; every time the
refrigerator door above it is shut the freezer swings open.

Don't shut it so hard and fast. There s a duct carrying cold air from
the freezer section to the refrigerator section. When you close the
door hard, a pressure wave travels through that duct and opens the door
