Question about U-Line 75R Refrigerator
We just installed a ULine 1175 BEV unit. Unless we close the door very gently and purposely, the door does not seal or pops open. Since my kids never remember to gently ease the door closed, it is usually open. Now it is flashing E5, after being open all night.
Is there a way to add a stronger magnet close, or to retrofit the door so that it seals more tightly and automatically?
no, you will need to replace the gasket. U-line gasket is easy to install. You can visit their website and under customer service you will see parts locator. The gasket just pulls out of the track and the new one pushes back in the track. www.u-line.com

Service and parts manual is here.
The procedure is as stated in solution 1 by expert Ironfist. The older units had a metal plate with screws that you had to loosed the screws in the retaining plate by peeling the gasket in the opposite direction without tearing it to loosen or tighten the screws on the retaining plate. Then you just lifted the gasket off. When you go to reinstall as previusly stated by the other expert... start in the top center and work to the corners. Make the coners fit before moving down either side to the bottom corners. Again make the lower corners fit and finally install the gasket across the bottom. Once installed rub the gasket mounting area smooth with one finger or thumb.
You have humbled and hornored me with your request. If there is something that your really having difficulty with once you start this gasket change just repsond here and I will get back to you ASAP but, we will complete the task!
