Hello my swan retro top fridge freezer fridge door seal is not catching to close

Remove the defective gasket from the refrigerator. The removal method may differ depending on the properties or materials that hold the gasket in place on your refrigerator.
  • Examine the gasket on your refrigerator to determine how it is held in place. The gasket may have adhesive strips, screws, or clips that fasten it to the refrigerator door panel.
  • Use the appropriate tools or methods to remove the defective gasket. For example, if the gasket is held in place by screws, use a screwdriver to remove the screws. If adhesive strips are in place, use a putty knife to pry the gasket away from the refrigerator door panel.
  • Pull the gasket away from the door panel one side at a time. This will allow you to verify that all fastening components have been completely removed, preventing pieces of the gasket from breaking off and being left on the door panel otherwise.

I have my selection lever set at filter and I have water comoin out of the return line and the waste line, what will cause this to happen?

There is a "spider" gasket that seperates the different ports inside the multi-port valve. When this gasket starts to get worn, it either comes loose and bunches up, or just plain loses its sealing capabilities. It is easy to fix.
Just remove the pin in the handle. Remove the through bolts holding the lid on the valve, and you will have access to this gasket. You then need to scrape the gasket "seat" clean of debris and old adhesive.

Then, you need to determine the model of the valve you have, and purchase a new gasket, and a new tube of underwater adhesive .

If you need help determining the part number of your valve gasket, please e-mail me the complete model number of the valve to and I would be happy to help you further once I have more information.

To affix new gasket simply put a light amount of adhesive on the gasket seat, then plave gasket in the seat and press firmly around in an even circle. Remove any extra adhesive the oozes out, then put the lid back on and replace the through bolts. Tighten the through bolts down and let it sit for 5-6 hours at least to cure the adhesive.

Then remove the lid again and check to make sure no adhesive has locked anything up, if so clean it off.

Now you are ready to put it all back together and test it out!

Door will open will not close


The door on a refrigerator is an important component to the over all functionality of the refrigerator. A simple refrigerator door repair can potentially save hundreds of dollars in energy every year.
Check the Hinges
A misaligned door hinge can release cold air from inside the refrigerator, causing it to run less efficiently. If the door doesn't shut evenly it could be a problem with a hinge. The easiest repair for this is to simply tighten the screws that hold the hinges. If this doesn't solve the problem try to see if the hinges are level. You may need to replace the hinges all together.
The Door Gasket
The rubber piece that circles the entire door serves a purpose more than just helping the door close quietly. It should form a seal that maintains the temperature inside the refrigerator. If the gasket is cracked or warped you will need to replace this. Find the model number for your refrigerator and you can find the right gasket. Some gaskets are simply put on with adhesives, others require clamps or screws.
The Light
If you have a faulty door switch, the light may stay on in your refrigerator. This wastes valuable energy. To check this simply find the switch and press on it with the door open. Sometimes a thorough cleaning of the switch can fix the problem.

By maintaining your refrigerator door and making the necessary repairs you can save yourself a lot of money in lost energy costs.

I hope this help in solving the problem....

I turn the dishwaser on and assoon as it begins to was water comes out from the bottom of the door. What could cause this?

It sounds like a bad gasket or seal around the door. These are usually inexpensive and fairly easy to install, but I wouldn't run the dishwasher until you've had a chance to fix it. When you buy the gasket/seal, ask if you need a special type of adhesive to install it. You didn't mention the model, so I can't tell if you will or not.

Kenmore Super Capacity 3.5 Front Load Washer leaves dark lines on light-coloured items and light lines on dark-coloured items! I've cleaned the rubber gasket (? where the door fits into the drum) and there...

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher number is 665.17539202. This unit seems to be leaking at the bottom right hand side. Now over time have noticed rubber coming away from the seal in the whole unit....

If the gasket is deteriating, that is DEFINATELY your culprit! You can get a replacement gasket through Sears (for being a kenmore) through or 1-800-4-my home


To replace a gasket can be extremely tedious if you're new to the job! Also, you would need a water resistant adhesive to fasten the gasket to the inner door. But to be safe with that, you'd be best to contact Sears (unfortunately). Judging by that model number...that unit appears to be made by G.E (may God Bless your home).
