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.

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.

Freezer door does not make vac sound


Might need a new seal.
A better test than sound is the put a dollar bill in sealing area and close door. Check how hard it is to pull dollar out (check tightness).
Do this all around the door in various spots.

Bought new 8.8 stand up magic c freezer can't get dr open


Bought the same freezer from Home Depot, door would not open did find with a bit of detective work that if you place your fingers between the door gasket and the shell of the freezer you can break the glue type seal then door works fine. You must go across top and down both sides.

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.

    Kenmore freezer


    if the gasket isn't torn and the gap isn't caused by a door hinge problem you might try putting some vaseline on the door seal. If that doesn't help you may have to replace the seal.

    Door not sealing


    After putting a new gasket on you will usually need to form it. You can use a hair dryer to heat the gasket and flat screw driver to form it.
