K4664X0GB/2 seems to have a magnetic door lock which in mine

Customer Question

K4664X0GB/2 seems to have a magnetic door lock which in mine is getting so weak that the seal pushes it open. Various parts suppliers say the seal is not magnetic (and is no longer available). How can I cure this problem?

Hi

 

That's correct the seal isn't magnetic although there is a magnet strip in there that doesn't keep the door closed.

 

If the door is popping open then its usually down to the door hinges as these are what keeps the door closed.

So from the sounds of this you have a fault with the door hinges so to cure this you need to replace them.
