Some door seals are held on by screws others slip around a lip depends on the model. If you gently pull the old one away and it comes off then you have a lip if not you should see the screws. You can heat the new seal in warm water or use a blow dryer be careful not to melt it, heat just enough to make it supple it'll be easier to work with. It can be a bit of a tedious job. Good luck.

Why is there water on the floor under the left side of the freezer door of my GE GSS25QTGA CC refrigerater/freezer


You may have door seal leaking forcing the system not only to work overtime, but to be extracting a lot of moisture from that intruding air.

GE French Door PFS22MIS Door seals are torn at top of both doors. How difficult to replace?


use your model # to order new seals. they are easy to replace. Just grab an edge with your fingers and pull and the door seals will pull out of the groove they are in. to replace, start at the bottom center of each door pressing the seal into the groove. don't stretch the seal as you replace and it will fit perfectly.

I have a ge gss22kgpacc side by side, the freezer is working, lights, etc. all working, but the refrigeratoe side is not working, any insight? thanks, mike


on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hope this helps good luck ron

Frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser


you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

Dishwasher door leaks heavily. this is a new problem today. The leak is from the lower right corner of the door.


It could need a good cleaning. Residue from soap and food tend to build up in that area all along the bottom of the door and seal. The other issue could be the seal itself, check the rubber seal at the bottom of the door and make sure it is not torn or damaged.
Unless the water level is getting to high, it should be one of these two.
Let me know. If you can provide me with the model number, I might be able to get a little closer.
Regards,

I have a GE front loader that leaks from the bottom, any ideas what it is from?


Is it coming from the front? You can take the bottom panel off and look inside. If the middle is not wet, it may be from a torn door gasket. Pull back the rubber seal on the machine (not the door) and you may see a big tear. That's what happened to ours. We ordered a new one on ebay and we are installing it now.

Door seal on GE Adora Washing Machine


After going through 2 different places that sent me the wrong part, I finally got the right boot seal today from Home Depot Appliances. I just gave them my model number and they overnighted the new boot seal to me, and for only $100. To call a GE repairman, it was going to cost $70 in the trip and $170 for the seal. Rip Off. We did it ourselves. Saved a lot of time and waiting.

Torn Door Boot


the way to replace it is you undo seal from front which might be a thin spring clamp behind the lip of the door seal it will be metal undo your lid look down the front of your washer to see the inside of the back of your door seal it will either be another bigger spring clamp or a screw clamp undo door seal will pullout replace backwards to how youve undone m8
