SOURCE: how to replace the door seal on a frigidare upright freezer

most fridge door seals are attached to the door by screws. If you flap the seal up from the bottom you should see some screws. if you go to the site below it gives your guidance on replacing the seals on fridges, as all fridge seals are pretty generic you should find it useful

SOURCE: Kenmore commercial upright freezer not sealing well - thawing

If the door seal does not seal completely, replace it. This is very important for freezers.

ne of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them

WHAT IS THE PROCESS IN REPLACING THE GASKET ON MY KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER


If it is a push fit gasket it simply pulls out and the new one pushes in to the groove. Warm in hot water before fitting to ease it in. If the seal is part of the door, you have to replace the door as a complete assembly. Rare models have doors that can be taken apart and reassembled with a new gasket fitted but i don't think Kenmore is one of those.

We have a frigidaire upright (ffu17m7hwd) which formed a lot of ice and we are in the midst of defrosting and don't want to experience this again. Can you assist please? Had to throw food out due to...


Freezer burn to food is caused by air & moisture in contact with it.
There should be a tight seal by the rubber gasket along all the inside edges of the freezer door. This gasket prevents unwanted hot moisture and hot air from entering the freezer compartment and causing ice build up. You can test the integrity of the rubber gasket seal by seeing how the freezer door will pinch a slip of paper in various spots around the freezer door. If the slip of paper pulls out easily, there is not a good seal at that spot. If that's the case (which I believe it is), the door gasket needs to be replaced. By the way, ice will build up over time because you need to access the food in the freezer, hence you will introduce moist air each time you open the freezer door.

I have a Frigedaire Upright freezer, Model says


to verify what i think could be the problem i would need the complete model number so i can recheck what i am about to tell you
the freezer has a heater where the door gasket seals itself on (not on the door behind gasket but on the freezer itself) see if you can feel if it is warm where the gasket rest on the freezer this help it get that solid air tight seal. and prevent ice build up on gasket

well this maybe one possible without being there its alittle hard to tell what else hope this was alittle helpful

Our upright freezer door will not seal tight with a vacuum anymore. The freezer fills up with snow from the air drawn in. I have defrosted it and cleaned the seal. What should I do now?


That could be one of two things, one the door is not aligned properly and more important the gasket has failed and needs replacement. The snow as you call it is ice condensed from the atmospheric air that is getting by the gasket. You may want to check the door gasket and sealing surfaces especially in the area of the "snow".
Good luck,

Is it worth replacing a door gasket on a 25 year old freezer. It is a Kenmore 6. Upright. It does not seal tight anymore.


Is the door gasket torn?? if not try cleaning the rubber surface that makes contact with the metal portion of the fridge and clean the metal area also, because inside the rubber gasket is a magnet that helps the gasket seal properly.I've seen door gaskets range in price from $50.00-$100.00 so if thats the only problem it sure beats buying a new fridge for a whole lot more money.

Kenmore freezer


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.
