Refrigerator door gasket pulls down and brakes off on top corner

As you use the refrigirator door, the gasket slip down and streches at the inside side of the door and finally tears apart and keeps sliding down. The technician replaced it about 3 months ago and we got back the same problem.

Look it over and see how it is held in place. A stripped screw or bent clamp depending on what holds it in place is the most likely suspect.

A stripped screw get a slightly bigger one or shrink the hole with tooth pics or match stick.

Bent metal strip remove and straighten possibly bending a little more in the opposite direction. And sometime 1 metal strip may be put on upside down or turned around backwards and not holding. look for similarity in the way these type of bracket/strips attach.

If this helps please rate me as high as possible.Thank you for using fixya.

The top door is frosting on the inside, changed the gasket same problem. It seems the door is sagging down a bit.


You might try loosening the screws on the hinge on top of your refrigerator and then lift up on the corner of the door away from the hinges and then re-tighten the screws. That will help put your door back in alignment and hopefully end your frosting. Hope this helps!

Procedure to Replace the Gasket on a Refrigerator Door?


The procedure is as follows:--
1)You can start from the top outside corner of the door. 2) Then carefully fold/pry the old gasket back by partly loosening the screws along half of the top and side of refrigerator.
3) Take care you don't loosen the screws all the way or remove then completely out.
4) Then you can slowly pull the old gasket out.
5) The old gasket is out now.you can now take the new gasket and fit the new gasket by pushing it beneath the metal retainer and re-tightening the screws .
6) Reverse the procedure by re-fitting all the parts which were removed while removing the old gasket .

This will help.Good Luck.

Replace seal on Liebherr french door


Are you talking about the center door gaskets? If so, Purchase new gaskets Left and Right (2 different part numbers) from Adco Service of Scottsdale AZ. The gaskets pull out from the two grooves and put liquid soap in the new gasket channel that holds the heater wire. Observe the channel where the wire came from.. Insert the heater wire slowly until it is at the end. Starting at the top, insert the gasket tongue that is towards the inside if the refrigerator first all the way down, then insert the side at the edge of the door. Be sure to firmly seat the gasket

Hello,
I suggest you get a handful of charcoal and place it on a small bowl, then put it inside your refrigirator. The charcoals will absorb the smell from your refrigirator. It is more effective than baking soda and coffee. :)

How to replace door gasket 60462-6 and where is the lowest priced garyr4059@yahoo.com


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Just a note on your part number:
(The manufacturer has replaced part number 604626 with this item, part number 70048-3.)

You can do a net search for the part above but these 2 sources seem to be the best price:

$51.78
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch.aspx?pn_=60462-6

$46.56

http://www.shop.com/maytag+refrigerator+gasket-70048!3-Home+Store-++2?g=5&k=30

I checked e-bay here but did not investigate the sellers:

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m570&_nkw=70048-3

I trust the first 2 links.

As far as how to change it... You roll back the gasket from the inside toward the outside and losen NOT remove the screws then pull the gasket outward. When you have the replacement gasket in hand you install it by pushing the flat protion under the mounting plate and re-tightening the screws. The most difficult part is making sure the corners line up and fold into place correctly. Sometimes you have to stretch the longer runs to get the corners to fit right. I do this by tightening ONE bottom or side corner screw so it does not slip then align the gasket. You tighten the gasket one screw at a time working from the first screw you tightened to the next corner. It is best to start at the top and work down..... doing the intial install so the gasket does not fold over itself while you installing it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Whirlpool refrigirator with top freezer


run your hand around bottom door seal see if you can feel a warm spot, if you do check that area for contamanation ie;particals of food etc if not pull the seal in that area back slightly see if seal is split.if all seems ok look at the drain hole at the back of your fridge inside it often clogs up with small particals of food if this is the problem use a pipe cleaner to clean it.if its cloged water will be seen lying at the bottom of your fridge ;if any of the above do not cure your problem turn down your fridge a little this will not affect your freezer.hope this helps you.adrian

A4 96' back window slipped down


Removal is actually very easy and only requires a philips screwdriver and about five minutes. Open the door and look at the top of the door panel at each end - there is a screw at each top corner - one that screws in at the front, pointing toward the rear of the car, one screws in at the back pointing toward the front. Remove those. Then, inside the handle that is used to pull the door shut, there's one screw there, at the back of the inside of the handle. Remove that. That frees up the trim piece that forms the inside of the pull handle. Slide it down and pull it out (it's kind of tough to do, so if it's not coming right off, don't worry, just pull down harder and it will). When you remove that, it exposes a fourth screw that anchors the door panel to the door frame. Take that out, and then the door panel lifts up and off the door. Be sure that you push the door lock down before lifting the door panel off, so that it's easier to remove the panel. When you start to reinstall it, pull the lock shaft up so that it's easier to align it with the hole in the top of the door panel, and reinstall the four screws you removed.

A4 96' back window slipped down


Open the door. At the top corners of the door panel, on the sides (the faces of the door panel that mate to the car's body when the door is shut), there is a screw on each end. Remove those. Next, in the door pull handle, there is a screw inside the pull with the head facing toward the front of the car. Take that out. You'll see that the inside area of the pull handle is a separate piece. Push hard to slide that downward and expose the final screw. Take out the last screw, hidden by the pull handle after you take it off, and then lift the door panel off the door. Be careful not to yank it too hard and damage the wiring.
