if the gasket isn't torn and the gap isn't caused by a door hinge problem you might try putting some vaseline on the door seal. If that doesn't help you may have to replace the seal.

I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

To replace your seal you'll have to remove the screws around the perimeter of the door's inner panel. Once all the screws are off separate the inner panel from the old seal and peel the seal away. It should peel away easily- if not use a Putty Knife to remove it.

Now take your new seal and "soften" it up a little by placing it in hot water for 10 minutes or so. It'll make it easier to place back in the correct position around the door since the seal was probably all twisted up and sharply folded doing shipping/storage.

Now simply lay it back in the same position the old seal was making sure there are no folds, creases or cuts in the seal. It must lay flat or it will leak all over again. Note: there is a sealant that you may want to get that's specially made for these seals to guaranty the seal gaps are filled and the seal stays in place. I use "Kitchen and Tub" Caulk when I don't have any refrigerator caulk available.

Now reassemble the door inner panel, your new seal, and the outer door all together with the screws you previously removed and you're all done.

If you need more info an excellent source is "Appliance Parts Pro".

Click on your Seal (item #1) and see the comments below that other customers asked.

Hope this helps.

Seal door twisted

Take the SEAL and put it in a BATHTUB with HOT HOT WATER.... It is become very flexible. Dry it off well and attach it. You may need to use a hair dryer to deal with small defects in the seal, but patience will pay off well in this repair.

Freezer door does not make vac sound

Might need a new seal.
A better test than sound is the put a dollar bill in sealing area and close door. Check how hard it is to pull dollar out (check tightness).
Do this all around the door in various spots.

After defrosting door will not seal well

Check there are no small vegetables stuck in the seal. Crazy, I know, but it's amazing the places frozen peas can end up.

If there's nothing caught in the seal, perhaps the seal has deformed. How did you do the defrosting? Sometimes people use knives and damage parts of their freezer. Some people use boiling water, which can cause damage to seals. If the seal has become deformed, you will most likely need a new seal.

It might also be worth checking the door hinges; if the door isn't flush with the opening, the seal won't seal properly. Defrosting shouldn't cause any problems with the door, but sometimes accidents happen.

Good luck!

Try cleaning along seal and seal itself. If it does not work get new seal. The seal do go bad after a while.. If under warranty call dealer you purchased from for them to replace.

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water

If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.

Door not sealing

After putting a new gasket on you will usually need to form it. You can use a hair dryer to heat the gasket and flat screw driver to form it.
