Hi there,

Well you may follow the steps given below -
1. There are screws under the fold of the freezer door gasket that holds the brace for the gasket in place. Lift the rubber gasket to expose the screw head, one section at a time. Just loosen the screw, and do not take it completely out.
2. As you loosen the screws, one section at a time, carefully remove the old gasket. At the same time, fit the new gasket into the groove. Make sure your new gasket is lined up properly.
3. Continue around the freezer door, unloosening the screw, taking out the old gasket and fitting the new one in.
4. Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place. Check the seal by closing the door.
You can please post the model number of your Refrigerator for further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

    The refrigerator is only two years old so the gasket should not need to be replaces. It is an LG. I thought there might be an adjustment on the drawer assembaly.

SOURCE: refrigerator side not sealing tightly when shut.

Sounds like you may need a new magnetic seal. It is worth the money to fix it, saving electric and your food items.

Sounds like the sealed system is leaking freon. If the appliance still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Good luck!

My ice drawer will not come out it is stuck


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I see this problem all of the time. That is why I recommend either a top freezer or side x side.

1.) You have guide rails on drawer type freezers. These become iced up to the point you can not open the door. If you try to force the door you may damage it.

2.) If the door is dot tightly sealed, condensate will get in the freezer. Hot goes to cold like a magnet. Hot air and cold air equals condensate.

3.) How do you fix the problem? Unfortunately, you can not get to the door guide rails to clean the ice of from them. You are going to have to unplug your unit to let the rails defrost to the point where you can pull the drawer. This can take up to 24 hours depending how badly the guide rails are iced up.

I have kitchen aid superba the icemaker works fine, except at the door where ice is dispensed the unit freezes up the ice crusher area like there is an air leak in the door somewhere which allows warm air...


I have had this issue with my french door kitchen aid freezer drawer. I have a toddler who sometimes gets into the drawer. If it is left open just a hair, it will melt everything completely and water leaks out all over the floor.

The drain gets clogged when the door gets pushed back in for a tight seal and freezes again.

Try to focus on keeping a really tight seal every time you open and then close the freezer...its almost like you have to TRY to close it hard to ensure it is closed. Total pain, but it works. When the door is closed tight, it stays like it is supposed to .

I have a Whirlpool GX5FHDXVY, only 3 months old, the freezer drawer does not seem to be sealing, it will be several days before I can get a repairman out, is there some easy way to fix this? I don't see...


May sure the drawer is installed correctly. Then with a hair dryer gentle heat the seal and adjust it to touch the cabinet. use a pen or pencil to gentle adjust it to touch the cabinet. One it is touching and will stay allow the door to stay in that position until the heated area of the gasket is cooled and can retain its shape.

Check top see if the arms of the drawer are fully seated into the rails which support it and extend from inside the freezer when the drawer is opened. On most french door refrig's, there are hooks on the back side and tabs on the front side which are sometimes hard to get back in. Then the door is locked into the rail with a screw at the point where the rail meets the freezer door.

My freezer is frosting...there is snow all over


In my case with constant snow and frost build-up in my bottom drawer GE freezer, it was because the drawer never properly closed. As one user noted, "there is no adjustment." However, there are "catches" at the rear of the drawer glides and in my case one needed adjustment because it was preventing the drawer from remaining closed tightly. SEE PHOTOS. The photos show many items removed, but to make this repair, you only need a butter knife to pop out the black plastic catch mechanisms at the back end of the drawer glides, and only if you can see that the spring is not properly positioned. SEE PHOTOS

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer drawer won't shut


Has something fallen behind the drawer, and is preventing it from sliding back all the way? Remove the drawer by pulling it all the way out and lift it up and out. Look for anything that has fallen back there.
