My fridge/freezer is frosting cos the rubbers shot x local repairman says he will not fix as "it never works"x can I replace them myself? difficult? x leroy


most places have a " seal-a fridge " type business that comes to your place and makes and fits door seals to fridges and freezers
check in the trade pages of the phone directory or go google and type in--- fridge door seals and repairs -- to see if there is a business close to you
the only problem that you may have is , if the door and seal edge area is badly rusted
if you can get a seal from a service agent spares and you have some ability you may be able to fit the new seal your self

Hi Vince,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please repair the Freezer door as it is not sealing, due to which cooling is affected. If it is under warranty then contact to the manufacturer as soon as possible.


Regards
ELLIN

Looking for a replacement seal measures 1040mm x 600mm


probably the best idea is to contact a local fridge/ freezer person that replaces seals on the doors of fridges and freezers (yellow pages for a start-fridge repairers)
they have an assortment of seal profiles on board and they make the seal to suit the door on site
The cost is about 75% of new price
ask the service agent spares for a seal, because although the freezer may be old , seals didn't change all that much and you may still get a seal from them
From the size I am guessing that it is a chest freezer probably an electrolux/email product and you may be lucky if it is

Can I replace insulation in door only?


Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

MY FREEZER DOOR IS FROZEN SHUT HOW CAN I GET IT OPENING


I'm no expert refrigerator guy but I'm going to guess the rubber seal on the freezer door leaks moisture which freezes the door shut. I would turn it off briefly until the seal thaws enough to allow the door to open. I'm sure you can find a replacement seal and replace it yourself. And just think, this repair pays for itself in time..

I have a Frigidaire freezer that is about 5 years old. I get ice build up inside the top of the door. The door appears to be closed.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

1.) Due you have the freezer in your garage? Freezers and refrigerators are not designed for the drastic temperature change through the seasons. If you had a service contract, your contract would be canceled.

2.) If you can run a piece of paper between the top door gasket and the freezer body you do not have a tight seal. Repair - Recondition the gasket. Wet the door gasket with water, with a hairy dryer heat the gasket while genteelly pulling the gasket out to expand with a spatula.

3.) If the gasket is good, then you are getting moisture either thru the top front of the unit or the top of the door.
a.) Inspect the liner where the ice build-up is. Are there cracks? Repair - Seal cracks with a good silicone adhesive.
b.) Inspect the upper door section and the front top of the freezer for possible leaks in the joints. Here again seal with adhesive.
c.) If the top of the door is expanded, then you have moisture in the door and need to replace the door. You will never get the moisture out of the insulating material.

ICE DOOR SEAL IS LOOSE AND NOT SEALING CAUSING FROST BUILDUP


Hello,

This is the step you will use to repair your ice door seal that is loose.

There are screws under the fold of the freezer door gasket that holds the brace for the gasket in place. Lift the rubber gasket to expose the screw head, one section at a time. Just loosen the screw, and do not take it completely out.

As you loosen the screws, one section at a time, carefully remove the old gasket. At the same time, fit the new gasket into the groove. Make sure your new gasket is lined up properly.

Continue around the freezer door, unloosening the screw, taking out the old gasket and fitting the new one in.

Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.

Check the seal by closing the door. You should have a nice, tight seal.

Good luck.



  • Step 4 Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.
