Question about Frigidaire FRT15B3A Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer loosing its seal.

I have a side by side fridge/freezer. For no apparent reason the seal on the freezer side is not sealing properly. IF I close the fridge side firmly there appears to be a piston effect or “something” that causes the side to loose it seal. I have checked the obvious possibilities; something interfering with the seal, freezer too full, Ice maker out of place. I am at a loss. I need recommendations.

Clean the door frame and the seal well. Put some DRY silicon or car wax where the seal touches, especially at the hinge edge. This is where the most friction is.

Replaced freezer gaskets now not sealing well


Jay, Check to see if hinge can be adjusted so door closes tighter, may be a faulty door seal, or maybe it needs manipulated to soften, shape, stretch it to seal better. You can try the dollar bill trick between the seal and fridge to locate the problem/leaking spots. The bill should not pull out with out there being a little force, no force means seal is not proper in that area. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

Freezer working fine the fridge is not


The motor running constantly means the fridge is not sealed properly so that it is losing cold to outside. Check if the door of the fridge seals properly.

Suction of freezer door


No, that perceived suction effect is the magnetic door seals 'grabbing" onto the fridge cabinet and pulling the door(s) shut firmly and securely.

Typically as the fridge gets older, you'll need to clean off both the fridge cabinet edges and the door seals to maintain a proper seal, which is essential to keeping the fridge operating properly.

Hopefully you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
