    I found that the gasket on this model had no screws it simply pushes in place it has a spine on the back that fits into a grove that is why the corners and the rest of the gasket perform so poorly

The door gasket is pinched between the door frame and the internal panel that is hold in there with screws. To simplify the operation take out the screws from the upper half only (top and half the sides), take out the old gasket from that part, reattach the screws from the top and remove all the others, take out the old gasket completely and insert the new one. Now reinsert all the screws - make sure the gasket sits well, you will not be able to rearrange it afterwards.
You should keep the door attached to the freezer, it will make the job easier.

How do i get a gasket replaced on a sears kenmore freezer model 31165


Order the new gasket using your model number- 31165 is not a valid/complete model. Remove the door and lay it flat on the floor, then remove the screws from the upper half of the door perimeter- DO NOT remove all the screws at once or you will be unhappy! Pull the top half of the old gasket away from the door, then put the top half of the new gasket in place and screw it back down. Next, remove the bottom half of the screws and pull the old gasket off, then put the bottom half of the new gasket in place and screw it down. If you try to do it all at once, the door will flex out of plane and won't lay flat when you re-attach it. You might need a hair dryer to soften the gasket if it was deformed during shipping. If you have a newer, press-fit style gasket, just yank it and press the new one in... Door Gasket 241872513

Freezer not cooling properly. Temperature alarm went off. Turned off now.


Look inside freezer on the rear wall to look to see if there is frost buildup. If yes then unplug and manually defrost defrost for about 3 hours if you only open freezer or place hot water in a bucket and place inside freezer and close the door.

Condensation in the right door of my VCFF136 the gasket is teared, I don't now what caused what first?


Hi,

Condensation is cause by warm air meeting cold air. I would suspect the door gasket was the cause of the condensation. When looking this up, I found many different models under this number, part number 67003547, this gasket is black in color and is a push on, means no screws required to change.

I hope this helps

The freezer gasket is no longer sealing properly allowing frost to buildup around the edges which eventually falls into the refrig area, thaws and leaves a puddle. Can we replace the gasket?


Yes, the gasket is replaceable, for modest cost and difficulty=easy.
Where to get new gasket: take exact Mfr. & model number (and serial number) of fridge
to your nearest
major appliance parts store (see yellow pages). Call them, to see if they have your replacement
gasket in stock, or may need to order it.
How to replace gasket: pull back inner edge of gasket until your see the 1/4-in hex head machine
screws attaching it to the freezer door. Using nutdriver, unscrew old gasket's screws, and
install new gasket by reversing the procedure, starting with the top middle screw, and proceeding
around the edges.
Its a "nutdriver project." If for some reason the screws are too rusted to re-use, an equivalent screw
(just match the diameter and length) is easily
(and inexpensively) obtained at your nearest hardware store - you won't even need to return to the
appliance parts store.
This procedure works for most standard freezer-over-fridge units - you can include your exact
Mfr. and model number in your next query for more precise info.

Need to remove door panel. How?


Door Panels - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The many different design interiors make it impossible to list each fastener location. The trim panels that must be removed are held in place by screws and clips. These locations vary from model to model. After removal of all the fasteners that you are aware of, if the trim panel is still firmly attached, you probably missed a hidden fastener. If this happens, gently and carefully pry the area looking for the location that doesn't flex. The location that does flex is where you'll find the fastener(s) you missed. Screws and retainers are usually hidden. Handle trim, reflectors, light lenses and other plastic pieces usually cover the main retaining screws. Take great care with the plastic trim panels. Plastic trim panels are usually very hard plastic and extremely easy to crack. The following steps can be used to guide you through the removal and installation of the trim panels, but you may need to alter these steps to your specific needs.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Pull the inside door handle to the open position, unfasten the screw and remove the handle escutcheon.
  3. If equipped with manual locks, remove door inside locking rod knob.
  4. If equipped with manual windows, insert a suitable window regulator handle removal tool behind the handle. Disengage the retainer, then remove the handle.
  5. If equipped with power windows and locks, use a small flat-bladed prytool to carefully pry the switch plate up, then detach the power component electrical connectors.
  6. If equipped, remove the screws inserted through door armrest and pull handle assembly into door inner panel or armrest hanger support bracket.
  7. Lift the seat belt trim panel up and remove the hidden retaining screws.
  8. Remove the outside side view mirror trim plate retaining screw. Lift the panel up to disengage the retaining clip, then remove the trim panel from the door.
  9. On styles with courtesy lamps located in the lower area of the trim panel, disconnect the wiring harness at the lamp assembly.
  10. If equipped, use a suitable tool to pry the reflector plate from the side of the door panel.Remove bottom trim cover retaining screws, then remove the lower trim cover.
  11. Remove any necessary electrical connector CPA clips, then unplug the electrical connectors.
  12. On styles with integral armrests, remove the screws inserted through the pull cup into the armrest hanger support.
  13. Unfasten the door trim panel retaining screws. The locations of the screws will vary depending upon the year of model of vehicle. The screws are usually hidden, so be sure to look carefully to make sure you don't miss any.After all of the trim panel retaining screws are removed, slide a suitable trim panel removal tool between the door panel and door perimeter to carefully disengage all of the trim panel retaining buttons. Make sure to position the tool close to the fastener, or the trim panel may be damaged.
  14. Carefully lift the trim panel away from the door, checking to be sure all of the retaining buttons and screws and electrical connectors are unfastened.

To install:


Before installing the door trim panel, check that all trim retainers are securely installed to the panel and are not damaged. Replace damaged retainers as required.
  1. Connect electrical components where present.
  2. To install the door trim panel, pull door inside handle inward; then position the trim panel to the inner panel, inserting the door handle through the panel hole.
  3. Position the trim panel to the door inner panel so that the trim retainers are aligned with the attaching holes in the panel, and tap the retainers into the holes with a clean rubber mallet. Install all previously removed items.
  4. Install the remaining door panel components in the reverse order of removal.
  5. After installation, connect the negative battery cable, then check for proper attachment and operation of electric components, if so equipped.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

I NEED HOW TO INSTALL A gasket ON THE DOOR OF A HOTPOINT, GASKET WR24X450.


look at the door gasket, look underneath the gasket and you can see how it is attached. either with a clip or the plastic itself is the one holding the gasket. unscrew all screws holding the gasket, order a new one and install backwards. if there is no screw, there is a grouve in the plastic wall where you can insert the gasket. just slowly pull the gasket and push the new gasket in to the grouve.
