Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

How to maintain your refrigerator door gasket.

One of the most common problems with a Refrigerator is the door gasket torn and falling off.
I can't tell how many homes I have been in and seen the door Gasket on the Refrigerator falling off, especially at the bottom. Its a very simple
maintenance remedy that most do not think of or have ever done.
What happens almost always is that sticky stuff (syrup,jelly.cokes,
orange juice,etc. spill down on the lower door and gasket and then dries.
Guess what? When you open the door the gasket is stuck to the fridge
and it pulls the gasket a little each time until it pulls off.
Its very simple ,once a week or so to take a warm wet rag and clean
the gasket all the way around and also the ref base then gasket seals to.

HI what can i use to bond my refrigerator door ruber which is torn

Replace the gasket. The magnet used to seal the gasket to the refrigerator or freezer frame pulls on the gasket every time you open the door.
