How do I repalace a door seal on the Kenmore refrigerator?


Remove the door makes the job easier. Using a table lay the door with door seal in the upright position. Pinch and pull the door seal over to one side to expose the door seal screws. Remove screws and gasket/ seal and install the new door seal in the reverse order.

I need to replace the rubber seal on my Hotpoint ice diamond freezer door I can't find any fixing screws on the inner door panel can I assume then that the panel clips on.


Me too, I have a Hotpoint Iced Diamond Under counter fridge that needs a new seal and i also cant see any fixings to remove it. I did read somewhere that you can't replace them you need to buy a complete new door.

The freezer door won't open


Hello,
Turn off the freezer.

Step 2
Remove the old seal. Most often, this will require removing the screws that hold the seal in place.

Step 3
Clean the seal location so the new seal has a good surface for a seal. If the old seal was held in place by adhesive, it will be necessary to scrape or wash the old adhesive off in order to get a good bond with the new adhesive. Always use a plastic scraper when a scraper is needed so you don't damage the surface you are cleaning.

Step 4
Install the new seal in the same way the previous seal was installed or per the instructions that came with the seal.

Step 5
Place the battery-powered light in the freezer.

Step 6
Check the new seal all the way around. Use the mirror to see some of the harder-to-reach areas.

Step 7
Carefully heat the seal and reshape it where there are gaps. You want to warm the seal to make it soft, not bake or burn it. Try lower heat settings first, turning on high heat only if the low setting does not soften the seal material.

Step 8
Remove the battery-powered light and turn the freezer Turn off the freezer.

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.

    I get excess frost on things in the freezer of my frost free refridgerator


    Hello Monkeyhouse,
    I live in a monkey house of my own with two little girls climbing on everything. If your house is like mine the main reason for frost build up is warm moist air entering the freezer. My children love to open the door all the time so I get some frost from that. If you are really getting alot then you may have a crack in your seal around the door. or the door is not sealing completely. To solve the problem you can adjust the door or you can replace the seal. Replacing the seal is really harder than most people would care to tackle. But if you discover a bad spot on the seal this is the best way to replace it. First would be to buy you a seal and start it soaking in hot hot water. This will loosen the rigidity of the seal and help with seating. Once the seal is soft begin removing the old seal. You can do this byraising the inside of the seal and loosening the screws. Do not remove the screws completely just loosen enough to remove and replace a small section at a time. work the new seal around and once you feel it is perfectly centered on all sides tighted the screws. If you still have waves or the door is not sealing you may need to reheat the seal with a hair dryer. Use caution not to burn the seal or overheat the seal.. Over heating will cause it to shrink and it will never work. Good luck to you and please let me know it this helped. MCA0824@aol.com
