I have a Samsung refrigerator with large (French doors) on the top. In order to seal properly, this small spring causes the left hand door to close in the proper manner. The original spring, which is quite small, failed, and the door would not close properly without some manipulation by the user. I guess I never realized how often I opened the fridge until I had to fiddle with it to keep it from making that chirping sound that means, ""Hey, my doors are not properly closed."" Anyway, hubby said calling a repairman for a tiny spring would be crazy, so I did some research and found that this spring would do the trick. I ordered it, and within a couple of days, we had the solution to an annoying problem. Great little replacement part!
