Installed a new door seal on freezer, old one was loosing it's magnetic seal. The new one does not want to conform to the door opening and will not seal. acts as if there is no magnet in the seal. It was ordered for the unit and fit just fine. I currently have to use leveres to keep the door shut tight.

You can use a blow dryer and heat the seal until it forms to the cabinet wall

Seal needs to be replaced around door. Make sure magnetic strip is tight against sides of refrigerator, even if you have to cut the outside so it lays flat against the sides.

FREEZER WILL DEFROST AND THAW OUT FOOD. THEN WILL START FREEZING AGAIN IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. THIS HAS HAPPEN 3-4 TIMES IN LAST 6-8 MONTHS. WHAT COULD BE PROBLEM?


seal around freezer door may be warped/old/cracked... or thermostat is not working properly.

Try duct taping door as tightly shut as possible and check around the time it freezes to see if that fixes the problem. If so, the seal (that has magnets so it will seal completely) needs to be replaced.

If that doesn't fix the problem, it could be a faulty thermostat in the freezer.

Door was not sealed tightly for about a day resulting in some frost inside freezer. Door appears to be closed but door ajar light is still lite and alarm is still beeping. What do I need to check?


The door seal has a magnetic property to it. Until the freezer gets to a certain degree the magnetic porperties of the door seal dont react properly. Make sure the door seal is properly adjusted. If the door was left open it could have semi warped the door. This gets corrected when temp drops to correct temp. Reset freezer by unplugging and waiting for a few minutes. If problem persist contact appliance technician.

If you have any more questions you can comment me back.

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

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.

Ev201nxm door doesn't seal/ices up


I have a EVL201NXRQ05 upright whirlpool. It was purchased in Nov 2008 in the Summer of 2009 the gasket was leaking at the top of the door. The gasket on this door snaps into place (no hardware needed). The problem is the door was bowed in the middle pulling the gasket down and away from the metal frame of the freezer - to the point the magnets in the gasket would not touch in the middle of the opening. I requested a new door while under warrantry. The door did not appear to be repairable it is a glued/foamed-inplace assembly. The new door looked straight when I installed it last summer and now it is bowed but not yet leaking. Whirlpool has a design / manufacture problem with this door design. I have received an extended warranty option from Whirlpool this past week 4 months after the factory warranty has expired. I suspect they know they have any issue, but not much is written about it. I may end up buying the extended warranty, but first I'm going to where I bought it to complain.

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'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
