Question about GE Refrigerators
I replaced the door gasket on a GE TBX20 fridge, but now the door will not close at the bottom. It is as if the lower part of the door is warped.
The gasket was not properly replace. Here is a simple way to fix it. You can do this yourself very easily.
When installing a new gasket, push the gasket bead under the gasket retainer with your fingers. Refrigerator doors tend to warp when the gasket retainer screws are loosened. To correct this, realign the door by hand after installing the new gasket. To straighten a warped door, pull at the bottom and push at the top, or pushing at the bottom and pulling at the top should fix this problem. Close the door to check the alignment.
Repeat as often as necessary, then tighten the gasket screws.
To remove the gasket, loosen all retainer screws and pull it out from behind the gasket retainer. Do not remove all the screws. If the new gasket is crimped from being packaged, place it in warm water until it regains it's original shape. It should lie flat around the door when applied and tightened. If it doesn't, remove the gasket and start over.
Gaskets are inexpensive and it's a good idea to check your refrigerator gasket after several years of ownership. If it is cracked, gets mildew constantly, replace it.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
