Question about Amana Refrigerators
Buy a gasket that fits your door exactly.
Soak the new gasket in hot water in the sink to make it pliable.
Make sure the refrigerator is level.
Find a nut driver that will fit the screws holding the old gasket in place and lay out your tools where you'll be able to reach them.
Start at the top outside corner of the door and fold the old gasket back as you partly loosen the screws along half of the top and side. Don't loosen them all the way.
Pull the old gasket out.
Attach the new gasket by pushing it beneath the metal retainer and tightening the screws as you go.
Replace each section the same way.
Shut the door and check for gaps. The seal should lie straight and smooth all the way around the door.
Notice if there are gaps between the gasket and the frame - this may indicate that the door has warped. (Fix it by loosening the screws and twisting the door a little. You may have to do this a few times before you get the door straight.)
Put a flashlight in the freezer pointed toward the opening and shut the door. Turn off the lights. You shouldn't see any light leaking through.
Good luck and hope this helps............
