Question about Sub-Zero 700TC Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our Subzero 736TC has a slight gap at the top where the refrigerator door gasket is supposed to hit the frame. We replaced the gasket and used a hair dryer to close the gap -- maybe, an 1/8 - 1/16 of an inch along 6 inches. No luck. I'm thinking of building up the frame side with tape or some other substance where the gap is so that the door with seal. Any ideas?
Please check the magnetic strip polarity.
I spend hours and hours of try to adjust the my Zub-zero 650 door hinges after I put on the new gasket I bought from Internet - "7010575 Refrigerator Gasket Replacement for Sub Zero" . No matter how perfect I aligned the door, it always ended up with some gaps. Finally I realized the polarity on the gasket might be wrong. I tested it with old magnetic strip to see if that strip stick flat to the surface or stick stand up on the edge. You would want the magnet stick to the flat side from end to end of the strip. That should the right polarity on the gasket. For some reason that part I receive is on the wrong direction. I carefully cut out the for corner with 45 degree angles joints and push out the strip and swap left to right and top to bottom. Now my door is seal much better. BTW, I just realized that my fridge was not cool enough might not because of my my gasket leaks. The symptom was the frost only build up portion of the top evaporator. From reading some of the other FixYa answers, they suggest it is due to low freon condition that might cause the freon leaking etc, etc.

Apply a small strip of soft foam weatherstripping tape to the frame in the area of the gap. You may have to taper the ends slightly to match the gasket profile or the foam tape will force the gasket open for a greater length.
