Question about Refrigerators
I live in a monkey house of my own with two little girls climbing on everything. If your house is like mine the main reason for frost build up is warm moist air entering the freezer. My children love to open the door all the time so I get some frost from that. If you are really getting alot then you may have a crack in your seal around the door. or the door is not sealing completely. To solve the problem you can adjust the door or you can replace the seal. Replacing the seal is really harder than most people would care to tackle. But if you discover a bad spot on the seal this is the best way to replace it. First would be to buy you a seal and start it soaking in hot hot water. This will loosen the rigidity of the seal and help with seating. Once the seal is soft begin removing the old seal. You can do this byraising the inside of the seal and loosening the screws. Do not remove the screws completely just loosen enough to remove and replace a small section at a time. work the new seal around and once you feel it is perfectly centered on all sides tighted the screws. If you still have waves or the door is not sealing you may need to reheat the seal with a hair dryer. Use caution not to burn the seal or overheat the seal.. Over heating will cause it to shrink and it will never work. Good luck to you and please let me know it this helped. MCA0824@aol.com
