Instructlions edesa fridgefreezer


Since you didn\'t say, I do not know who manufactured the refrigerator/freezer of which you write. Nor do I know the model number. Fortunately, leaking freezers leave a wide evidence trail.

If the inside of a freezer door is icing up, that usually means there is an air leak to the outside of the freezer. Warmer, moist air is being sucked into the freezer, right where that moisture is freezing almost instantly, and depositing the ice right where the leak is. So, where you see the ice is pretty much where the air is coming in. That\'s where the gasket is bad.

The part that seals the door is called a gasket. It is a magnetized rubber strip that goes around the entire door, where the door contacts the main box of the freezer. As I said, this gasket is magnetic. Close the door and carefully check the entire perimeter of the door. (that means the whole rubber strip, every inch) Where the ice is on the inside, the gasket will be torn, folded over, or defective in some other way. There can even be tears in the folds of the rubber part of the gasket. Check it all, carefully. It should be readily apparent; kinked, torn, melted, yanked, out of it\'s channel, etc. The idea is to get it properly shaped so it seals to the main box of the freezer.

If you can repair it, do so. High quality silicone caulk can seal small tears in the rubber. If not, go to where you bought it, or call the 800 number and ask about a new gasket. Look for labels and/or plates, inside the door edges, on the back, anywhere. The info is there. Find it. A freezer door will not seal without a properly functioning gasket.

After the door gasket is repaired, set the freezer to maintain a constant temperature of 0\' F maximum. Get a freezer/refrigerator thermometer at K/Wal Mart or similar store and get the temps correct.

The fridge should be 40\'F MAX. 34\'F is much better. The freezer should be 0\'F max. 10\' below 0\' F is even better.

The leaking gasket on your freezer is sucking electricity and costing you money in electric bills. The sooner it\'s repaired, the quicker you will recover the money you spent on the new gasket.

If necessary.

Good luck.

When you run a wash there is some water on the tile floor. I found the rubber gasket inside the door is torn.


If the tear is small, try using silicon glue to repair it--clean the surface of the boot and apply the glue. Let dry for 24 hours before using the machine. If the tear is large, the boot must be replaced. It can be done from the front without removing the cabinet, but it's tricky. These tears usually occur when trying to remove jeans and a metal button catches the rubber.

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.

Leak from Bottom of door


Yes. It will get worst. However if it does not leak while you are doing your wash, then you are gravy for a while. However a replacement "bellow" is about $100 dollars.
