Rotten gasket seal on ConServ bottom freezer refrigerator

I am looking for the gasket seal for both the freezer & fridge both. The model number is SKF375. It's an older model. The fridge seal is 38 x 23 size gasket and the freezer seal is 32X23. Any idea where I can purchase them? Will I be able to install it myself?

SOURCE: Condensation on refrigerator front btwn top freezer and refrigerator doors

I have the same problem with my frig in the basement. I get condensation and resulting mold on the top outer surface and related areas. This is from the surface being cold, with resulting outside moist air condensing on the cold surface. Best solution - spray/wipe the surface with a bleach and water solution, let it soak a few minutes, then wipe off with a rag. Add a drop of dishwasher soap to a mixture of roughly 4 parts water to one part bleach. Repeat if necessary. Do this as often as the problem seems to creep up again. Good luck!

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

The freezer will stay cold because a small amount of cold air will be forced through the frost but that will not be enough to make it up to the refrigerator portion. You can defrost the unit by removing the metal panel and allowing the frost to melt. Careful use of a hairdryer can speed up this process. This will likely be a temporary fix. The root cause of excessive frost can be caused by a bad door seal or a defective defrost circuit.

First check that the door seal is good by closing the door on a dollar bill at several points around the door, both on the freezer and refidgerator door. If you can pull the bill out with no resistance, the door is not making a good seal. Inspect the seal and make sure there isn't anything stopping the door from closing such as food, or a shelf not pushed in all the way.

If the door seal is good, the defrost system is likely defective. The defrost system has three main parts, the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. None of these parts are particularly expensive, or difficult to replace you feel comfortable with repairing it yourself. If you can troubleshoot this by manually starting the defrost cycle. Let me know if you would like this procedure.

What would cause water to run out of the bottom fridge freezer

Some older models have a catch pan that needs to be emptied. It should be behind the grate on the bottom, on the front side. This just snaps off.

If it is a newer model it may have a bad door gasket and not making a good seal. You should feel some resistance when opening the doors if the seal is good.

Instructlions edesa fridgefreezer

Since you didn\'t say, I do not know who manufactured the refrigerator/freezer of which you write. Nor do I know the model number. Fortunately, leaking freezers leave a wide evidence trail.

If the inside of a freezer door is icing up, that usually means there is an air leak to the outside of the freezer. Warmer, moist air is being sucked into the freezer, right where that moisture is freezing almost instantly, and depositing the ice right where the leak is. So, where you see the ice is pretty much where the air is coming in. That\'s where the gasket is bad.

The part that seals the door is called a gasket. It is a magnetized rubber strip that goes around the entire door, where the door contacts the main box of the freezer. As I said, this gasket is magnetic. Close the door and carefully check the entire perimeter of the door. (that means the whole rubber strip, every inch) Where the ice is on the inside, the gasket will be torn, folded over, or defective in some other way. There can even be tears in the folds of the rubber part of the gasket. Check it all, carefully. It should be readily apparent; kinked, torn, melted, yanked, out of it\'s channel, etc. The idea is to get it properly shaped so it seals to the main box of the freezer.

If you can repair it, do so. High quality silicone caulk can seal small tears in the rubber. If not, go to where you bought it, or call the 800 number and ask about a new gasket. Look for labels and/or plates, inside the door edges, on the back, anywhere. The info is there. Find it. A freezer door will not seal without a properly functioning gasket.

After the door gasket is repaired, set the freezer to maintain a constant temperature of 0\' F maximum. Get a freezer/refrigerator thermometer at K/Wal Mart or similar store and get the temps correct.

The fridge should be 40\'F MAX. 34\'F is much better. The freezer should be 0\'F max. 10\' below 0\' F is even better.

The leaking gasket on your freezer is sucking electricity and costing you money in electric bills. The sooner it\'s repaired, the quicker you will recover the money you spent on the new gasket.

If necessary.

Good luck.

Hi, I think the seal is damaged on my fridge freezer. It is a CB18m/1c/fan whirlpool fridge freezer. Where do i look for a replacement seal? Thank you

Is a package/or a shelf blocking the door? If a gasket is required & damaged it would be noticeably different than the look of the rest of the gasket. The door originally was held straight by the screws behind the gasket & a undamaged door liner(cracked with weight of packages will cause it to twist), if it is twisted than it can be realigned by twisting it straight & may have to loosen the screws a little first & then snug them back up after it has been twisted straight. Gaskets generally have a flat magnet in them to pull the door up to the body of the fridge & with a model number(or take the gasket to them is the worse scenario) can be obtained from a Major appliance store or they can order it.

Model# RT18DKXEW05 parts

Repair clinic has booth door gaskets
the refrigerator gasket is $91.60
The freezer door gasket is $72.95

If the unit is working good it might be worth it to replace the gaskets if unit is in good shape and you only need one of the 2 gaskets I would replace it. if needs both you need to see what a replacement unit costs and make a decision

The freezer gasket is no longer sealing properly allowing frost to buildup around the edges which eventually falls into the refrig area, thaws and leaves a puddle. Can we replace the gasket?

Yes, the gasket is replaceable, for modest cost and difficulty=easy.
Where to get new gasket: take exact Mfr. & model number (and serial number) of fridge
to your nearest
major appliance parts store (see yellow pages). Call them, to see if they have your replacement
gasket in stock, or may need to order it.
How to replace gasket: pull back inner edge of gasket until your see the 1/4-in hex head machine
screws attaching it to the freezer door. Using nutdriver, unscrew old gasket's screws, and
install new gasket by reversing the procedure, starting with the top middle screw, and proceeding
around the edges.
Its a "nutdriver project." If for some reason the screws are too rusted to re-use, an equivalent screw
(just match the diameter and length) is easily
(and inexpensively) obtained at your nearest hardware store - you won't even need to return to the
appliance parts store.
This procedure works for most standard freezer-over-fridge units - you can include your exact
Mfr. and model number in your next query for more precise info.

My brother has a AEG fridge freezer he thinks the part number is either R600A or 412 or KG2 we need new door seals for both doors can you advise the part numbers needed? it is a fridge at the top and a...

The R600a is the isobutane gas in the system. The 412 is probably the alternate gas to be used. The KG2 is probably the weight. You have the make & model number above. most magnetic door seals will fit you buy it in a roll and cut it to size.

Hello, Its not that hard to change a gasket..If you peel the gasket to one side underneath you should see the screws holding it in place...remove all the screws and put the new one in place...Once the new gasket is in place it's not going to seal right so here is a tip...get a heat gun or hairdryer and close the door of the freezer...warm gasket up until you see the gaps close..once you see it has a good seal you are all set. Good Luck!!! Mike
