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

Getting error code 36 hour duration


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code of 36 hours. Normally it will display that once power has been restored, it is indicating that the freezer has been without power for 36 hours. Hold the "alarm reset" for 3 seconds and that should help clear out the code. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I own a liebherr GNP2076 frost free upright frrezer


freezers do not normally go wrong too often so your going south is unusual.liebherr have given you a very good responce that some makers would not even dream of,i would recomend that you take up their offer as the chances of another problem are slim to zero...(in european law, it is you that has to prove that an appliance has a "inbuilt fault"to get anywhere.)

Buzzing noise -Kyoto KU 9577 Freezer


you may have a bad compressor or a bad compressor relay. The buzzing noise sounds like the compressor trying to start but can't. Unplug the unit and pull the relay off the compressor. If it rattles like gravel in side it replace the relay. If it doesn't then you may need to call a repairman to check the compressor. Hope this helps.
