The title of your question is cut off so I am guessing you are wanting tips on how to make the job easier.

First hold up the new one to make sure it is the right gasket. (there is nothing worse than taking it apart and finding the part is wrong.

The best way to replace a gasket is to soak the new one in warm water prior to the installation. This will soften it up and make it more flexible and forming.

Remove only part of the old gasket before putting the new one on, for example take the screws out from the top row and a few down each side of the freezer liner that holds the old gasket on. Carefully peel the old gasket off leaving it hang.

Start the new gasket in the center of the top and work your way to the corners. Work your way down to the bottom, tightening along the way.

I hope this helps

How do i install a new door gasket/seal on my Frigidaire upright freezer model # LFFH21F7HWA ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to install a new door gasket on your Frigidaire freezer, model# LFFH21F7HWA. Typically this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals that will tell you how to do this. I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. The technician has been trained on your specific appliance, and should be able to replace the new gasket with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How difficult is it to replace a Door Gasket - True TS-49F Freezer


The old gasket just pulls directly out from its slot in the door. Start about 3" away from a corner, then pull the corner out; the rest is easy. Soak the new gasket in warm water before fitting; it softens the edge and makes it easier to push in.

How tight should the suction be on the door of chest freezer


Hello dotty26 - The door gasket should be securely closing with no resistance. You may try lubricating the door gasket with petroleum jelly to make it easier to open as well.

Ice forming on "ceiling" of freezer, on hinge side.


Yes it is and its typically quite easy to do.


First you will need to determine what type of gasket is in the unit. Typically its just a push in style gasket that is held in place by a dart style backing that holds it into place.


A tip to use is to soak the new gasket in screaming hot water for about 5 minutes before installation. The install it right away. The hot water will make the gasket easier to handle and it will slide into place easily. The just leave the door closed for about an hour to allow the new gasket to form up and hold into place.

Good luck

Stand up freezer builds up frost quickly


It sounds like you may be on the right track here. If the gasket is old, hard, and brittle, it will allow moisture to be administered into the freezer, causing frost buildup. Not to mention, that old door gasket is leaking out a lot of cold air. Your best bet is to provide the model number (as you've shown here) and the serial number to an appliance parts store or authorized GE appliance parts outlet. They should be able to provide you with a brand new gasket. Removal and re-installation of the new gasket is fairly simple and you'll notice a big difference, not only in the lack of frost buildup on the inside of the freezer (especially in the summer) but you may even see a noted improvement on your electric bill as well!

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

How do I change the door seal on a gibson UR freezer?


The most important thing is to make sure the new seal is warmed up to room temperature so it is soft and workable. Since the seal on mine is attached to the top door there is nothing to gain by leaving the door attached. Working upside down would leave the door open longer than just taking it off.

If you still have food in the freezer just put blankets over the top until the door is back on. If you have screws holding the seal it will go much easier. Mine has plastic pins that break easily pulling them out.

Get the edges as straight as possible to avoid leaks.

Freezer Door


Defrost to get rid of icicles (temporarily). shut the door on a piece of paper , and try to pull it out . The gasket should be tight enough with the door closed that the paper will resist being pulled out, or not come out at all. Check all around the door, it might be bad in just a small area. A bad gasket means warm air enters, cold are exits, and where the two meet, condensation forms, which inside become stalagtites (I mean icicles). The service guy should have checked it, but hey, who would expect a new appliance not to work properly? If the gasket checks out ok, maybe insulation was not installed properly in the door, which would cause temp variation. countrycurt0
