There is a long strip of metal being held on by several 1/4 head screws these screws are under the exsisting gasket you have to pull the gasket back to find them. the new gasket fits under the lip of this metal strip that is what holds the gasket on no adhesive. Also a hint;
If you place the new gasket out in the sunlight for a while to warm the gasket it installs much easier. Also dont stretch the gasket let it lay flat it should mount easily.

Normal fitting for a door gasket is plastic pop buttons which go through the edge of the liner then through the gasket and into pre-drilled holes in the fridge door.

Some older uinit has stainless steel self tappers doing the same job.

You will probably find that if you place a normal dinner knife under the current gasket between it and the door you will be able to prise the thing off

Make sure that you are not too heavy handed about it in case you snap the buttons off

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio dryer. The door gasket is partially coming off. Can I use any adhesive to "glue" it back on? I am concerned about toxins being emitted from the heat. Thank you.


No most glues are flammable try some duct tape, small piece or you can get the tape they use on heating vents it looks like aluminum foil and is very sticky

Trying to install glass cover over hole at bottom of headlight, but glue seems only option as there is no apparent clips or gaskets for two prongs. Do I glue this in place?


The dealer will have a clear adhesive they recommend and sell over their parts counter. If they do not, ask the person behind the counter, and quite often they will have a recommendation. I might use clear silicone, but I'd prefer the recommended adhesive. Good luck and let us know your outcome so others may share.

Seal came apart on side marker light assembly


Should be able to use clear silicone sealer for the light, you may need to take the bulb out first to vent the air inside for a good seal.
People use yellow weatherstrip adhesive for door gaskets, but the snaps help keep it in place - so the adhesive may not last long.
You might check with an auto parts store or someone who supplies body shops for a replacement strip. Most of that kind of thing is made by aftermarket suppliers.

When replacing a bad gasket do you glue it on or what is the best way to adhese it to the preexisting rubber... v2240 food saver


Hi jab500...
I would recommend a good adhesive such as 3m Weatherstrip Cement or Contact Cement to glue the gasket in place. Use a small amount of cement, in case you want to replace the seal in later times.
By glueing the gasket in place with cement it will not come loose during use.
Please take time to rate me

Replace glass on front of oven


Hi You need a high temperature silicone adhesive designed for this purpose. There are a number of companies that make a suitable glue. There is also a company, http://ovendoorglue.co.uk that make a small kit specifically for the purpose of fixing your oven door. Do not use normal adhesive, as the correct adhesive not only is heat proof to 300 degrees centigrade, but also remains flexible when cured. This ensures that as the oven heats up, and the metal and glass expand, the flexibility in the glue prevents stress in the glass. Dow Corning make a glue that can be used, but be aware that it is red, and so may show. Other glues are black. Indeed the black glues tend to be slightly thicker on application and dry quicker.

Replace felt seal on gas dryer door


Yuck, nothing like replacing the felt, removers will only give you brain damage.I would find something hard plastic to scrap it off to prevent scraping of the finish. Dont give up a burn it off, I know from experience. Try the red plastic scrapers from Ace Hardware, there cheap by a dozen just in case the person who installed the felt had a seizure with the glue!

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 16939


I have the same model dishwasher with same problem. The gasket first came loose just after my warranty expired. The stainless steel and heat don't make for a good combination with the glue that holds the gasket in. My husband works with caulk and the like. He found a clear gel of some sort to get everything to adhere. It's had to be reapplied. I just make a habit of making sure the gasket is seated in its track and watching if dishes on top rack catch the gasket when I pull rack out.

See www.repairclinic.com, item #1065754, White silicone adhesive, specially formulated for use in the dishwasher to adhere tine tips & door gaskets. It's an accessory for this dishwasher. I don't know if Sears Parts Direct offers it. Sometimes their price is lower.

From above website it costs $14.55
