    I recently fitted a new door seal for a friend but they beleive that the seal should be positioned differently (they say it is leaking and there is a drain hole which should be at the bottom) Is there a specific position that the door seal should be in?

Thank you gittos73.

It's as gittos says. When you open the door and look inside, at the very top of the door is a white square. This holds the metal clip. If you push the little white dot in the middle of this clamp gently, it gives way and you will see the round metal clip that goes all the way round the door rubber (gasket). Remove this and you can put your fingers round the gasket and pull it toward you.

Then take the lid off the machine and you will see a 6mm nut with a spring behind it and a wire clip similar to the front one, going round the gasket where it attaches to the drum. This has a crosspoint (phillips type) head on it and you can get a small screwdriver into it and undo it all the way. Then slide the gasket off and it will come away.

Fitting it is the reverse but it is a little bit tricky as you have to get the gasket behind the lip to make the seal. Take your time and they will both go round properly.

To fit your new door seal you open the door there is a clamp holding front off door seal on,this is around the lip of it once you have taken this clamp off the door seal will just need pulling off the front and you will be able to push this into the inside of the drum now take the lid of look to the inside front of your washer were the seal attachs to the drum u will see a clamp around it undo that and then your dor seal will pull out now reverse the order in which u took it of and replace the seal once u have done it u will find it easy the next time m8

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

Procedure to Replace the Gasket on a Refrigerator Door?


The procedure is as follows:--
1)You can start from the top outside corner of the door. 2) Then carefully fold/pry the old gasket back by partly loosening the screws along half of the top and side of refrigerator.
3) Take care you don't loosen the screws all the way or remove then completely out.
4) Then you can slowly pull the old gasket out.
5) The old gasket is out now.you can now take the new gasket and fit the new gasket by pushing it beneath the metal retainer and re-tightening the screws .
6) Reverse the procedure by re-fitting all the parts which were removed while removing the old gasket .

This will help.Good Luck.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind the front panel.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it back off the front panel. Pull the door lock/latch assembly out of the washer and disconnect the wiring harnesses.

Connect the wiring harness to the new door lock/latch assembly and install it back in place behind the front panel. the door lock/latch assembly and put the eased part of the door gasket back into position over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before putting back and securing the retaining hoop around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.

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.

    How do i replace the gasket on a top freezer refrigator?


    Hi, first you will have to remove top freezer door, remove plastic cover from hinge, at left or right, above door, remove top hinge, tilt door slightly forward and lift off, be careful with spacers between door and hinge, you have to put back spacer between door and hinge to get proper alignment. put door on flat surface, lift rubber and check underneat, you will see screws or plastic clips, if there's screw, make like 3 or 4 turns with screwdriver, dont completely remove screw, if you don't have, don't know what type of ref. you got, remove old door gasket, replace new one, and put it back on. good luck.

    Replace door gasket


    It sounds like you have left the spring on the inside lip of the door opening when you removed the old seal,
    You will have to take the seal off again and feel for the spring on the lip of the front of the drum, you will find it easier if you have something to hook it out with,it is fiddley, but you must get the spring out, or the seal will not stay on
    Refit seal as before, and double it back inside the drum,then fit the spring in the groove that you can feel on the lip of the door seal. Work the spring all the way rond feeding it into the groove as you go round, you will find it a lot easier if you have someone there to hold the spring as you are are fittingit, it is very fiddley, stick with it!!!.
    Plz rate this solution .
    Thanks.
