SOURCE: new 642 freezer door is very hard to open due to seal sticking

If the seal or seating area is sticky, wash it with warm water. If it isn't, this is just the sign of a good refrigerator. As the air cools, it becomes more dense and creates a vacuum inside the compartment. With a pliable new door seal which is sealing well, combined with a large door, this can cause a great seal with alot of pressure pulling on it. Smile, this is why your consumers bill will be much better with that new sub-z.

This is probably a "push in" gasket.

The frost free freezer has started to form ice


First point of investigation, is to check the door seal. Sometimes new seals get stuck-suction and when opened and shut possibly cause a small tear, lubricate very gently with Vaseline, this will enable the seal to firstly seal properly and secondly not put undue pressure due to suction on new door seals.
If that does not resolve it then have a technician check the thermostat.

Icicles in the freezer and frost inside door of freezer. Normal for brand new refrigerator?


It sounds like the seal isn't closing completely. If there is any gap around the seal air is probably entering and the moisture is freezing. This sometimes happens when the doors are reversed. Try heating the gasket with a hair dryer if there are gaps in the gasket.

Have replaced seal on freezer door but I have lost suction to keep the door closed. (Push in door seal)


Sometimes the gaskets are a little bigger than the orginal. what to do is use duck tape or something to keep the door closed for 24 hours and this will help put the new gasket in the right position. hope this helps. wally

is the seal new usually when we put a new seal on the door we use petroleum jelly aka vaseline around the entire door seal and shut the door for about two hours this causes the seal to mold to the fridge door while it is closed and also increases the amount of adherence to the door cabinet as well send me your model number so i can look up your model and send you a schematic so you will be able to adjust the door Thanks again

ICE DOOR SEAL IS LOOSE AND NOT SEALING CAUSING FROST BUILDUP


Hello,

This is the step you will use to repair your ice door seal that is loose.

There are screws under the fold of the freezer door gasket that holds the brace for the gasket in place. Lift the rubber gasket to expose the screw head, one section at a time. Just loosen the screw, and do not take it completely out.

As you loosen the screws, one section at a time, carefully remove the old gasket. At the same time, fit the new gasket into the groove. Make sure your new gasket is lined up properly.

Continue around the freezer door, unloosening the screw, taking out the old gasket and fitting the new one in.

Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.

Check the seal by closing the door. You should have a nice, tight seal.

Good luck.



  • Step 4 Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.

    HOW HARD IS IT TO CHANGE OUT THE DOOR SEAL GASKETS ON MAYTAG FRIDGE/FREEZERS? MINE NEVER SEALED RIGHT AND NOW I AM GETTING ICE CONDENSATION IN THE FREEZER AND DRIPS ON THE FRIDGE TOP. MODEL # MTB2456DEW


    Hello, Its not that hard to change a gasket..If you peel the gasket to one side underneath you should see the screws holding it in place...remove all the screws and put the new one in place...Once the new gasket is in place it's not going to seal right so here is a tip...get a heat gun or hairdryer and close the door of the freezer...warm gasket up until you see the gaps close..once you see it has a good seal you are all set. Good Luck!!! Mike

    Installed a new door gasket on my freezer but it does not seal as well as the old one. What did I do wrong ? Freezer is a frigidaire model mfu14f3gw


    Try taking it off again and putting it in hot water for about 5 minutes. This will soften it up. Now reinstall it and close the door. This will help form it to it's new home. New gaskets are always a problem for a few days.
    Try this and hope it works out for you.

    Freezer door does not seal all the way


    Air intake has water in it (vapour) better if you higher altitude away from sea level.as the freezer gets cold it sucjks in warm air as a thermodynamic equilibrium mechanism. Only fix...get NEW seals or new door with new seals. Try thick silicone grease in a tube for cheap messy fix and rub it over the magnetic seals. dont use vasaaline, thats for gays.
