I have an old Ben Hur chest freezer that's still working good. It's so big, we put a cow and pig in it. I need to replace the gasket on the door. Any ideas?

There are several refrigeration houses that can have gaskets custom made to your spect. I would call Rick at Restaurant Parts and More and see if he can help. 1-888-814-1110.
If you have a model and serial numbers, this may also help as he does have access to some manufacturers for OEM parts.

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

How tight should the suction be on the door of chest freezer


Hello dotty26 - The door gasket should be securely closing with no resistance. You may try lubricating the door gasket with petroleum jelly to make it easier to open as well.

Stand up freezer builds up frost quickly


It sounds like you may be on the right track here. If the gasket is old, hard, and brittle, it will allow moisture to be administered into the freezer, causing frost buildup. Not to mention, that old door gasket is leaking out a lot of cold air. Your best bet is to provide the model number (as you've shown here) and the serial number to an appliance parts store or authorized GE appliance parts outlet. They should be able to provide you with a brand new gasket. Removal and re-installation of the new gasket is fairly simple and you'll notice a big difference, not only in the lack of frost buildup on the inside of the freezer (especially in the summer) but you may even see a noted improvement on your electric bill as well!

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

The front surface of the chest freezer is


Hi, can you put your hands on front of freezer, and check from 1 to 5 without getting burn? how long can you keep your hands on front of freezer? check from 1 to 20 and let me know, normally there's a condensate line, or part of condenser lines that passes through freezer body , purpose of those condensate line is to prevent your door gasket from freezing , especially during winter. It's normal for front of freezer to be warmed, on hot days it will be a little hotter, you said "very hot" makes me wonder how hot it is, put your hands on front of freezer, use number method and let me know, but it's normal. good luck.

Chest freezer lid repair


if your freezer has the sping etc in each of the hinges, then yes take them off. If your freezer has a torshon bar type spring, DO NOT take the hinges off, as you will not get it back together

i have always replaced liners with the door attached. The lid of the freezer is going to bow out of shape when you remove all the screws and take the old lining off, so you need to replace the lining and leave the screws loose so you can realine the door bit by bit.
it is a bastard of a job, and i wish you all the best.
