Well, you can find a universal gasket kit. Instead of being one solid piece specifically made for you model, It is made up of pieces that you cut to fit. I should warn you that these kits are very difficult to work with. If you dont create an air tight seal, the constant warm air leak will make it run longer, decreasing its useful life.
You said however that the gasket is only dried and rock hard, not that it was torn or falling away from the door. If that is indeed the case, and you still have good tight seal on all four sides, you might be ok for a while.
factory replacements are nearly impossible without a model number for reference.

SOURCE: chest freezer ices up quicker than it should

if the box has mold between the seal and liner the the seal isn't the main problem, the main problem is the liner is bad and by time you got both parts if you can it would cost more than to replace the freezer.

Can I replace insulation in door only?


Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

How to fix a chest freezer seal


Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

I see you are trying to fix the seal on your Frigidaire chest freezer. Are you having an issue with your freezer not closing? If so, have you verified that there is nothing blocking the door from closing as well as making sure there was nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body? Next, I would check to make sure that the gasket is not damaged or compromised in any way. If it is not damaged, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. I hope this information helps. -Matt

HI,my freezer runs fine,but I noticed where the motor side is,should there be a fan??,I feel no air moving.didn`t try to take off cover an look.an the freezer gets alot of ice at the top sides.thanks


Good day,
Unlike most refrigerators and upright freezers, they don't use a fan motor. The condenser coils are imbedded in the walls of the machine, and need no supplemental cooling.

As to the ice buildup, sounds as if the gasket isn't sealing well enough. You could try cleaning the gasket thoroughly, and check the alignment of the lid to the body.
Appliance parts houses carry a food compatible spray, which may help make the vinyl more pliable.
If that doesn't work well enough, then the only option is replacing the whole gasket.

With the model number, check with the supply house to see if the gasket is a replaceable style.

Philco Freezer - replace/repair seal & plastic around top


Good day,
Unlikely you would be able to repair if the inner liner is coming apart.
A local appliance parts house may be able to supply universal gasket to fit to the machine but again, if the inner liner is bad it could prove to be fruitless.

Oddly enough, if you visit supermarkets you will see chest type freezers with no top at all.
Seems like a terrible loss, but it's not.
Cold air falls, hot air rises. When the freezer generates cold air it doesn't spill out the top. It settles into the bottom of the freezer, and stays there. Likewise, warm air rises and has no interest in going into the freezer cavity.
Bottom line. Very little loss.
If appearance doesn't matter, and you can get it close, you should be able to continue to use it.
Your choice, but I thought you would like to know the physics involved here and how it does or doesn't affect you.

Freezer builds up frost and ice too quickly.


Either the door gasket is not sealing well or the unit is low in refrigerant.

Can my kenmore chest freezer be in the garage during hot summers and cold winters in Minnesota?


Jeremy,

You can put a fridge/freezer in the garage. Be sure that the area is level so you don't warp the case which will cause sealing problems with the gasket. Also, clean the condenser frequently as dust and dirt will reduce efficiency.
