The rubber edges on the door are suppose to get hot.
some times the fill very hot. many people don't notice this. There is a small mullion heater plased around the doors so that the gasket will not freeze and the door will stick and not open.

Tip

Removing GROMMETS safely!


Nothing worse than flapping sidecovers or loose parts on your motorcycle! Especially if you have ruined the rubber retaining grommet yourself.

Removing RUBBER grommets of any age without undue damage, can be achieved by heating the grommet from both sides (if possible).

Use a heat gun or even a handheld hairdryer with a nozzle, to heat the grommet to a temperature of about 50 degrees celsius or 125 Fahrenhiet or as hot as your fingers can hold comfortably.

Whilst hot, push BOTH edges of flange towards centre of hole until BOTH edges are clear of inner diameter of hole on the part. Push through to the clear side from this edge you have distorted inwards, working around in both directions simutaneously.

To replace them afterwards, submerge in hot water until hot and squeeze together from edges to form an oval. Insert an end into place and then feed each side in simultaneously. A light smear of liquid detergent will facilitate this, but is slippery on the fingers too. No need to use tools, they will detroy them! Cheers.

We have a frigidaire upright (ffu17m7hwd) which formed a lot of ice and we are in the midst of defrosting and don't want to experience this again. Can you assist please? Had to throw food out due to...


Freezer burn to food is caused by air & moisture in contact with it.
There should be a tight seal by the rubber gasket along all the inside edges of the freezer door. This gasket prevents unwanted hot moisture and hot air from entering the freezer compartment and causing ice build up. You can test the integrity of the rubber gasket seal by seeing how the freezer door will pinch a slip of paper in various spots around the freezer door. If the slip of paper pulls out easily, there is not a good seal at that spot. If that's the case (which I believe it is), the door gasket needs to be replaced. By the way, ice will build up over time because you need to access the food in the freezer, hence you will introduce moist air each time you open the freezer door.

I have a admiral fridge designer series # HMG 62186 that I purchased in 1997. It has always had popping sounds and sparks behind the drawer in the freezer. A repairman told me this was normal, so I...


Hello WIntersno,

I understand that your refrigerator is sparking behind the freezer drawer and you would like to know if this is a fire hazard. In my opinion it would be a fire hazard as plastic and rubber is flammable and the repairman is not true in saying that this is normal. A refrigerator should never spark as this is also an electrical hazard. I would suggest having another repaid man come out and fix the problem or purchase a new box.

How to change door rubber on miele premier 300, can the front of machine be opened allowing to change the door rubber


I'm assuming you mean the flexible rubber between the door and the drum. Can it be replaced? The short answer is no! However...
I recently repaired a door rubber with a tear that caused the water to flood onto the floor. Here's how:
Yes, you can open the front to get to the door rubber however the rubber seal is glued to both the door and the inner drum lip.
You may have to tilt the machine on it's back to remove three screws from the underside of the front lip. (I forget if you need to take the water pump cover out as well but it wouldn't hurt to do so.) This allows the front panel (including door) to drop down a quarter inch or so and be eased out a little.
This allows *better* access to the drum rubber. To repair a tear - really the only reason you would want to do this - you need glue and some tape.
The door rubber is silicone and will stick with normal 'super glue'. However, bear in mind that these machines can do a wash up to 95C, which is hot enough to soften superglue.
I found a new version of superglue called Repair Extreme by Pattex that copes with temperatures up to 120C. It sets in about 5 minutes.
The glue needs to be flexible. Do not use epoxy resin.
I gave the glue some form by sticking a 10-15cm piece of duct tape - the silver shiny plastic tape plumbers use, readily available from any hardware and most supermarkets - to the *back* of the drum rubber. It's a tight squeeze to get your hands in there but it can be done.
Take the tension off the drum rubber by moving the front panel roughly back in place.
Then squeeze a generous amount of glue along the tear (about 3cm long on the bottom edge; a typical problem) to completely whet the edges to be joined.
Apply a little pressure to the location of the tear for a few minutes to help the glue hold fast. Leave the glue to set for at least half an hour before reassembly.
If you can source a replacement drum rubber the old one can basically be removed by force. A good cleaning and then a suitable glue could stick a new unit in place. However, if this is required, seriously consider buying a new unit. It is difficult to make a good seal that will not leak and may not be worth the effort in the first place.

Leak from dishwasher door


Hi,
Usually this problem is an easy fix. Try this first.
1.) clean the rubber seal that goes around the door and the knife edge on the unit with a dish rag to remove any dirt. Also check for cracks and dents as you go. If you find a crack in the rubber ... replace .
If you find a crack in the plastic knife edge of the unit, you will have to epoxy it and sand smooth (carefully)

2.) OK, if that didn't help ...on mine, there is a steam release vent. On the outside of the door is a vent that releases steam from the hot water. On the inside of the door is a removable water trap that might be full of old gunky stuff. Clean that stuff out of there.

WHEN MY UNIT WAS LEAKING WATER IT WAS #2
Let me know if you need more help.
Best of Luck,
