Can gasket for CR09FFW be replaced?

if you are referring to the door seal ( sometimes called a gasket) yes it can be replaced by a new genuine item or in some areas there is a private operation that goes around making door seals to fit and are fitted as part of the price
look in the yellow pages (business directory ) for refrigerator repairs or refrigerator door seals
Note here - although you may contemplate doing the job your self , some old seals are glued in and need knowledge as how to remove it , and the door will some times go out of shape when the door shelves panel is removed so it is best to get in a professional to do the job

Kenmore 253.64802400 this fridge keeps running all the time and at long periods of times. Food is kept cold but it keeps running. How long is the average run cycle in a fridge. I've seen times the fridge...

Hello James;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Good for you. You purchased a simple unit that does not have all of the buzzers and fancy controls that can go wrong.

The normal cycle of your unit is the temperature will rise to 20 degrees above set temperature and then shut down, until you reach 20 degrees below set temperature.

Your problem is you have a bad door seal. Your compressor is running trying to maintain the set temperature.

Ok, lets fix this problem:

1.) There are two screws in the bottom front of your refrigerator.
You want to turn these screws clockwise to raise the front of the refrigerator so it is pitched slightly back. This will assist in maintaining a good seal.
2.) Wet the door gaskets. With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the door gaskets up pulling them out with the spatula trying to expand the crushed gasket.

If you have a bad gasket. It is easily replaced , a grooved slot. Pull out the old gasket and insert the new one.
Heat the new gasket in hot water for 30 minutes. Form and expand it with your hair dryer and spatula.

Inspect the door gasket, are there cracks and worn sections? With a hair dryer and spatula, heat the gasket while using the spatula to expand

Crosley upright freezer fan blows - but doesn't get cold anymore

Hello burnelltolbe - If your refrigerator is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system that only a professional can help with. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evaporator fan, coil or coolant lines. I suggest cleaning the unit out including the coils you can reach, and make sure no food items are blocking any vents in the unit. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If any suggestion proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Crosley side by side freezer and fridge have ice in bottom

Hello - A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Another possibility is an air leak and the cool air is causing the frost buildup. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and have them check the coolant system.

Model #79575543401 KENMORE ELITE Refrigerator The left side double door leaks at the bottom into the interior of the fridge. There is a panel on the inside of the bottom of the door, but not sure how...

. Using a good light , flashlight , etc. check your refrigerator and freezer door seals . This is the gasket that seals the door shut when closed . Look for cracks, tears, and possibly bumps in the gasket material. If you notice any of these , replace the door seal gasket . Furthermore , it is always best to replace both door gaskets at same time .

Crosley fridge will not stop running?

Check the seal (gasket) around the door. If the seal is not sealing properly the compressor has to keep running all the time.
