I wouldn't worry about vacuum seal. door gaskets contain a low powered magnet around the entire face for "contact" seal, id look into perhaps something placed on one of the shelves or door blocking the door from closing as tightly as you remembered. if you have a problem with that gasket. it would have to be physically ripped and where it didn't make contact you would have an influx of warm air resulting in ice balls forming inside door liner adjacent to seal

Can I replace insulation in door only?


Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. 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 nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

Why is water leaking from door seals


the seal itself may be bad. coat the seal lightly with lipstick (your choice of color) close door GENTLY then open and check coverage and evenness of lipstick. any gaps will show lack of seal.

Door will not stay shut, nothing is blocking it, no suction sound when it closes


1. Check entire condition of seal, even the bottom section and make sure it is not damaged.
2.Check the seal on the side of the door the hinges are on, they may be catching on the cabinet when closing, if so, use petrolium gel and rub it on the face of the seal, this will allow lubrication of the seal.
3.Also check that the seal has not swelled , if so, you can rectify this by using a hair dryer and starting on the sides the hinges are on, carefully heat the outside of the entire seal on that side, then close the door and hold firmly closed till cool, then move to the other side, top, then bottom doing the same process each time, this usually works a treat.

I hope that has been of some help for you and it works.

check gromets on hinges for wear. check weight on doors is it causing the door to droop? are the gaskets cracked? more information is needed if possible.

My fridge door doesn't seem to close completely - No suction?


if you peel back the seal from inside out you should find some screws. losen the screws and replace the part that came out. to set the seal just heat it with a hair dryer with the door closed and hold the seal with a putty knife until it cools

Try cleaning along seal and seal itself. If it does not work get new seal. The seal do go bad after a while.. If under warranty call dealer you purchased from for them to replace.

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water


If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.
