I am replacing the door gasket. The old one did not use screws to hold it on but the new one does. I am confused on how to install the new one. Please advise on the difference and how to install. I have made sure that everything else is correct.

You have the wrong gasket. The new one should be attatched the same as the one that was removed

How do i get a gasket replaced on a sears kenmore freezer model 31165


Order the new gasket using your model number- 31165 is not a valid/complete model. Remove the door and lay it flat on the floor, then remove the screws from the upper half of the door perimeter- DO NOT remove all the screws at once or you will be unhappy! Pull the top half of the old gasket away from the door, then put the top half of the new gasket in place and screw it back down. Next, remove the bottom half of the screws and pull the old gasket off, then put the bottom half of the new gasket in place and screw it down. If you try to do it all at once, the door will flex out of plane and won't lay flat when you re-attach it. You might need a hair dryer to soften the gasket if it was deformed during shipping. If you have a newer, press-fit style gasket, just yank it and press the new one in... Door Gasket 241872513

How difficult is it to replace a Door Gasket - True TS-49F Freezer


The old gasket just pulls directly out from its slot in the door. Start about 3" away from a corner, then pull the corner out; the rest is easy. Soak the new gasket in warm water before fitting; it softens the edge and makes it easier to push in.

CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO CHANGE THE DOOR SEAL PLEASE ON UPRIGHT FREEZER?


There are a bunch of 1/4 screws around the door inside underneath the gasket. Make sure you unload all the food from the door. Unscrew the upper half first, remove half of old one and install a new one. Then the other half. Tip: Don't unscrew the screws all the way. Just loosen them up.

Ice forming on "ceiling" of freezer, on hinge side.


Yes it is and its typically quite easy to do.


First you will need to determine what type of gasket is in the unit. Typically its just a push in style gasket that is held in place by a dart style backing that holds it into place.


A tip to use is to soak the new gasket in screaming hot water for about 5 minutes before installation. The install it right away. The hot water will make the gasket easier to handle and it will slide into place easily. The just leave the door closed for about an hour to allow the new gasket to form up and hold into place.

Good luck

Bought a new gasket - any hints to make installation easier?


The title of your question is cut off so I am guessing you are wanting tips on how to make the job easier.

First hold up the new one to make sure it is the right gasket. (there is nothing worse than taking it apart and finding the part is wrong.

The best way to replace a gasket is to soak the new one in warm water prior to the installation. This will soften it up and make it more flexible and forming.

Remove only part of the old gasket before putting the new one on, for example take the screws out from the top row and a few down each side of the freezer liner that holds the old gasket on. Carefully peel the old gasket off leaving it hang.

Start the new gasket in the center of the top and work your way to the corners. Work your way down to the bottom, tightening along the way.

I hope this helps

Stand up freezer builds up frost quickly


It sounds like you may be on the right track here. If the gasket is old, hard, and brittle, it will allow moisture to be administered into the freezer, causing frost buildup. Not to mention, that old door gasket is leaking out a lot of cold air. Your best bet is to provide the model number (as you've shown here) and the serial number to an appliance parts store or authorized GE appliance parts outlet. They should be able to provide you with a brand new gasket. Removal and re-installation of the new gasket is fairly simple and you'll notice a big difference, not only in the lack of frost buildup on the inside of the freezer (especially in the summer) but you may even see a noted improvement on your electric bill as well!

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

How do I change the door seal on a gibson UR freezer?


The most important thing is to make sure the new seal is warmed up to room temperature so it is soft and workable. Since the seal on mine is attached to the top door there is nothing to gain by leaving the door attached. Working upside down would leave the door open longer than just taking it off.

If you still have food in the freezer just put blankets over the top until the door is back on. If you have screws holding the seal it will go much easier. Mine has plastic pins that break easily pulling them out.

Get the edges as straight as possible to avoid leaks.

Is it worth replacing a door gasket on a 25 year old freezer. It is a Kenmore 6. Upright. It does not seal tight anymore.


Is the door gasket torn?? if not try cleaning the rubber surface that makes contact with the metal portion of the fridge and clean the metal area also, because inside the rubber gasket is a magnet that helps the gasket seal properly.I've seen door gaskets range in price from $50.00-$100.00 so if thats the only problem it sure beats buying a new fridge for a whole lot more money.

Loose handle


yes , on most freezers the door inner panel liner needs to be removed , that will sometimes require the removal of the door gasket that may be old to the point where it to needs replacing. then finally you can get to the back side of the door and snug up the screws that hold the handle from the back. usually fine thread screws. be sure to apply loc tite and snug up good , we don't want to do this again any time soon. you can take a chance and try pulling out the handle and cutting the screws and then drill the hole in the handle out to where you see a hole in the side of the handle from the front, then counter sink the hole and use a drill screw or a small toggle bolt to resecure the handle . no real wires or refigeration tubes in the door, so its an option. good luck
