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

We have a Kenmore 16, model model 253.8283680, that recently continuously cycles on and off. What could be the problem associated with this?


Hello;



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



The normal cycle is: Your compressor will turn on to raise the freezer temperature 20 degrees F. above the set temperature, and then the compressor will shut off, Until the freezer temperature drops 20 degrees F. below the set temperature and again the compressor will turn on.



One of the main problems with this type of freezer is the door gasket becomes crushed over time or the door is so thin it becomes deformed.



Do not try to replace the door gasket. You have to soak the new gasket in hot water for 1/2 hour and then form it on the door.



If you notice a gap in the corner of the door - pull hard on it to get it flush.



Recondition the door gasket - With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the gasket and try to expand the gasket by pulling out with the spatula.



You can purchase a special freezer lubricant. Be sure not to over do it. It can make the door hard to open. P/N 542638

1/2 Oz. $12.00.

I have a Frigidaire freezer that is about 5 years old. I get ice build up inside the top of the door. The door appears to be closed.


Hello;

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

1.) Due you have the freezer in your garage? Freezers and refrigerators are not designed for the drastic temperature change through the seasons. If you had a service contract, your contract would be canceled.

2.) If you can run a piece of paper between the top door gasket and the freezer body you do not have a tight seal. Repair - Recondition the gasket. Wet the door gasket with water, with a hairy dryer heat the gasket while genteelly pulling the gasket out to expand with a spatula.

3.) If the gasket is good, then you are getting moisture either thru the top front of the unit or the top of the door.
a.) Inspect the liner where the ice build-up is. Are there cracks? Repair - Seal cracks with a good silicone adhesive.
b.) Inspect the upper door section and the front top of the freezer for possible leaks in the joints. Here again seal with adhesive.
c.) If the top of the door is expanded, then you have moisture in the door and need to replace the door. You will never get the moisture out of the insulating material.

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.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS IN REPLACING THE GASKET ON MY KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER


If it is a push fit gasket it simply pulls out and the new one pushes in to the groove. Warm in hot water before fitting to ease it in. If the seal is part of the door, you have to replace the door as a complete assembly. Rare models have doors that can be taken apart and reassembled with a new gasket fitted but i don't think Kenmore is one of those.

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.
