Samsung side by side door flap now drifts flat with left…

Customer Question
Samsung side by side...

Samsung side by side door flap now drifts flat with left door open so cannot close by itself, must open right door. Took flap off and disconnected the wire. Is there a spring or motor that keeps the flap on edge when the door is open. Is there an easy fix or do I need a new flap?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 3 and half years...were is model listed?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Manual says RF261B....RF260B....RF26H

Yes this spring here does that, but often the plastic breaks so you most likely need a whole new center flap assembly...CLICK HERE SPRING the model is on the walll liner with the refrigerator door open.
