Refrigerator gasket cement (what is it so I can buy it)

Been looking on sites all over, and been finding references to gasket cement to help seal the refrigerator gaskets, but can't find anything similarly named. So what material is it made of so i can find a similar generic material

thanks, in advance...

Ill assume there is a tear in the gasket? if this is the case you can mend a tear with regular clear(or white) g.e. 100%silicone. apply a little silicone n the seam where the tear is and close the door overnight allowing the silicone to set up. it will remain flexible enought to compensate for the door opening and closing

    I believe some refrigerator manufacturers specify that you apply silicone on the area before putting the new gasket in place.

Every time I open the refrigerator door, I have water in the egg baskets on the door and water dripping down from the top.

Hello David McCullough,

Welcome to FIXYA... your question is so well posed and nomenclature very complete.... Allowed me to took up your parts availability (they are available (see below))...!!

The first site I looked at also has an "instruction" video.

Keep in mind even if you buy a NEW SEAL... It will come folded up in a box... and you will have to manipulate it to assure full contact... So watch the video... see what they do... and when all is said-n-done... square, clean & true...

The important thing you need to know right now is your issue is a simple air Leak... If you have not moved the refrigerator... and no children are using it (rather than the drawer trick) to get to the counter-top (cookie jar)...

You need only CHECK the condition of your seal.

If it is clean, supple without any cracks... It probably only needs to be "ENCOURAGED" to CONTINUE it's faithful service... It has a magnetic edge that aides it to seal (weak... but there)

Be sure to check the BOTTOM of the seal first... if there is any food or fudge down there it will keep even the WELL-ALIGNED door from sealing... (or pizza box... (etc.)).

Once you are sure the seal is worth keeping: clean it with only a DAMP cloth and as much soap as you can lather on your hand from BAR SOAP... If it has kitchen grease on it use a pinch of baking dry soda and a soft toothbrush...

Also check the gasket actually touches the METAL (top) part of the refrigerator housing... a small $6 part can allow the door to drop enough to create this issue...

Finally if everything looks fine... do the "dollar-bill" test.
(brown bag paper is just as good & a lot more sanitary)...

Pull a piece of paper... the dimensions of a dollar bill by opening the door... and closing it on the "dollar"... going fully around the entire door you should feel equal pressure all around...

(all around)

Too tight means the door needs to be adjusted (refer to your owners manual"

Too loose... what you are MOST LIKELY going to find on the gasket above you "egg baskets" ...

ELSE your door has dropped...

You either need the door closer kit ($6) or to simply raise the door so the MAGNET (inside the gasket) is in contact with the METAL refrigerator case.

If it is in alignment... but loose SIMPLY CUT A SODA STRAW
(or a little wadded up SOFT plastic wrap) for the length of the looseness... pick up the INSIDE EDGE OF THE GASKET ... and train the gasket to get closer...

Remove the straw when the NATURAL MAGNETIC attraction works again (a few weeks).

Hope this helps!

Can gasket for CR09FFW be replaced?

if you are referring to the door seal ( sometimes called a gasket) yes it can be replaced by a new genuine item or in some areas there is a private operation that goes around making door seals to fit and are fitted as part of the price
look in the yellow pages (business directory ) for refrigerator repairs or refrigerator door seals
Note here - although you may contemplate doing the job your self , some old seals are glued in and need knowledge as how to remove it , and the door will some times go out of shape when the door shelves panel is removed so it is best to get in a professional to do the job

When replacing a bad gasket do you glue it on or what is the best way to adhese it to the preexisting rubber... v2240 food saver

Hi jab500...
I would recommend a good adhesive such as 3m Weatherstrip Cement or Contact Cement to glue the gasket in place. Use a small amount of cement, in case you want to replace the seal in later times.
By glueing the gasket in place with cement it will not come loose during use.

2001 Intruder VL 1500 - I have an exhaust leak on the rear cylinder between the black pipe and chrome pipe. I ordered in a new gasket (some refer to as a doughnut). When I took it apart the gasket looked...

if it's the gasket i think you mean i always use 'Maniseal' (a white exhaust cement) with these seals/gaskets as they can be notoriously fickle to seal properly & try to torque the bolts/nuts to the correct settings too-imperative !

I have a top freezer. Whenever the refrigerator door is closed, the freezer door pops open. There appears to be a good seal around each door... How do I keep the freezer door from poping open, when...

Replace the seals. It may appear to be in good shape but what is happening is the compressed air from closing the refer door is going up and releasing the seal on the freezer I would replace the freezer seal first as that should solve your problem.

I have ice forming on back wall above top drawer in refrigerator. Belive seal may need to be replaced. Any other suggestions?

The gasket would be the last thing I would suspect. Is the ice a ball to the left side or is it all the way across? Could be a sealed system issue or a bad thermistor. I would recomend calling a factory authorized servicer for proper diagnosis before putting the money into a gasket. Besides look at the gasket all the wat around for any damage and make sure the door is closeing properly. Isee units with torn gaskets all the time and it doesn't cause ice build up in th refrigerator side.

Refrig door gasket does not prevent gap when door is closed

Lift up the gasket and look for screws securing the gasket to the door.
Loosen all of these screws a few turns and twist the door in the direction needed to seal.
Hold the door in this position as you tighten the screws.
This can be tricky and sometimes requires multiple efforts.
