Frigidaire frost free upright freezer door corner dripping


Hello Yellow, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is dripping water out of the corner of the door. It is possible that with your power going out the heat may have caused the gasket to warp. Do you see any frost build-up? The water that is dripping could be coming from condensation within the freezer. I would recommend checking the gasket to see if it is allowing warm air to enter the freezer.

I recommend that you visually inspect the door gasket for defects such as gaps or tears. You can also use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the freezer. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. A faulty door gasket can allow warm air to enter the compartment and cause frost to condensation or a leak. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Why is my upright igloo freezer not staying close


The door sometimes warps and need to be lightly twisted back to where all four corners make contact and seal.
Your unit may need to be tilt back a bit so the door wants to close y itself, the front foot pegs are adjustable and can be turned to make the front higher or lower than the back side of the cooler, gravity closes the door when the unit is leaning back.

Frigidaire upright freezer door will not seal


Hi Chris, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble with the door sealing on your upright freezer. Many times this can be caused by the freezer not being leveled. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems. To level your upright freezer use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2 bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. I hope this information has been helpful.

Freezer door does not have the vacuum suction that it did have


Check the door is square to the frame and no shelves are sticking out stopping the door from closing properly. The seal should be magnetic and stick to the frame quite well.Check no metal strips have come off so the magnetic seal isn't attaching to the frame

I have a kenmore upright freezer model #253.9266411 there is a gap in the upper left side does anyone know how to adjust the door? The seal is fine


I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Will not seal. new from sears.


The description below is for a gap at the top of the door. Adjust the procedure for gap at bottom by "twisting" the door in the opposite direction.

I need to change the freezer seal on my refrigerator. But they did not send me any directions on how to do it.


most of these have a hardened plastic female channel thats tough to see . it is a part of the door and consealed under the old gasket. it has a hollow groove . usually the new gasket has a flat side with a dart or double dart piece sticking out . this dart or arrow side runs the entire side of the gasket and smushes into the door groove channel.. usually you start on a corner firmly pulling out the old dart and gasket from the channel groove. clean the old channel with mild detergent and a little brush. wipe down. lightly oil door groove channel with a little veg oil on a rag and get ready to mash the new dart onto the channel all the way around. it takes great finger strength and mashing one thumb on top of the other to get enough pressure but it can be easy on some. good luck .be sure to clean door sill mating surface and wipe with oily Veg oil rag so new gasket stays clean and doesnt stick. it may take a few days to break in and level out. be sure your snug all around when done. lay out new gasket nice and flat in warm room before you start.

Freezer door won't close at top


If you are careful, open the door 90 degrees and place your leg against the bottom corner inside of the open door and your hand at the top corner, then GENTLY push inward. You should be able to feel and see the move or twist. Then close the door to test for proper sealing. Another way to adjust the door is to loosen the screws behind the door seal and twist,but this usually unnecessary if you do the leg trick properly.
