The magnetic door gasket is sold at any hardware store. It's sold in a roll that has an adhesive backing on one side, you cut it to fit. Hell, I'm looking at them on Home Depot's web site right now on my desk top, (typing on my laptop), and looked at Lowe's site, they also have them. I'm going guess and say that a stupid minimum wage store clerk probably told you they didn't have them. Now you're wasting my time, don't bother replying, I'm done.

    Also, don't rate this. Otherwise I'll just have to report it as an attack. I'm kind of surprised that you didn't know you could get the door gaskets, you being the expert you are and everything, or maybe I'm missing something about the gasket. I replaced the one on my fridge and my parents fridge not long ago, that easy. So, what am I not understanding or missing here? Please let me know, I'm always up for learning more, and if I'm wrong, I have no problem admitting it.

    The more I think about this, the more it irritates me. Why don't you go after these one liner or "take it to a professional" experts. Man, my solution wasn't that far off of yours, I just assumed the asker had a bit of intelligence about him. Besides, I've got more that 1500 solutions under my belt, with a percentage of over 84%, so man, lay off, and go after one of these other yahoos. There's plenty to choose from.

Hello my swan retro top fridge freezer fridge door seal is not catching to close

Remove the defective gasket from the refrigerator. The removal method may differ depending on the properties or materials that hold the gasket in place on your refrigerator.
  • Examine the gasket on your refrigerator to determine how it is held in place. The gasket may have adhesive strips, screws, or clips that fasten it to the refrigerator door panel.
  • Use the appropriate tools or methods to remove the defective gasket. For example, if the gasket is held in place by screws, use a screwdriver to remove the screws. If adhesive strips are in place, use a putty knife to pry the gasket away from the refrigerator door panel.
  • Pull the gasket away from the door panel one side at a time. This will allow you to verify that all fastening components have been completely removed, preventing pieces of the gasket from breaking off and being left on the door panel otherwise.

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 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.

Can gasket for CR09FFW be replaced?

if you are referring to the door seal ( sometimes called a gasket) yes it can be replaced by a new genuine item or in some areas there is a private operation that goes around making door seals to fit and are fitted as part of the price
look in the yellow pages (business directory ) for refrigerator repairs or refrigerator door seals
Note here - although you may contemplate doing the job your self , some old seals are glued in and need knowledge as how to remove it , and the door will some times go out of shape when the door shelves panel is removed so it is best to get in a professional to do the job

You can use wood stove rope gasket material, that you can find at most home centers or hardware stores. It will probably seal better than what fell off. You'll also need the adhesive. Take a piece of the old gasket with you for comparison in width and thickness.

I have my selection lever set at filter and I have water comoin out of the return line and the waste line, what will cause this to happen?

There is a "spider" gasket that seperates the different ports inside the multi-port valve. When this gasket starts to get worn, it either comes loose and bunches up, or just plain loses its sealing capabilities. It is easy to fix.
Just remove the pin in the handle. Remove the through bolts holding the lid on the valve, and you will have access to this gasket. You then need to scrape the gasket "seat" clean of debris and old adhesive.

Then, you need to determine the model of the valve you have, and purchase a new gasket, and a new tube of underwater adhesive .

If you need help determining the part number of your valve gasket, please e-mail me the complete model number of the valve to [email protected] and I would be happy to help you further once I have more information.

To affix new gasket simply put a light amount of adhesive on the gasket seat, then plave gasket in the seat and press firmly around in an even circle. Remove any extra adhesive the oozes out, then put the lid back on and replace the through bolts. Tighten the through bolts down and let it sit for 5-6 hours at least to cure the adhesive.

Then remove the lid again and check to make sure no adhesive has locked anything up, if so clean it off.

Now you are ready to put it all back together and test it out!

Replacing door gaskets on model EF19MKXSN00

The gasket is held in place by metal strips on all 4 sides with a lot of screws. Loosen do not remove the screws and pull the gasket out from under it, Warm the new gasket in some hot water and tuck back under the retainers. Tighten the screws snug not overly tight. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to seat the new gasket and remove the wrinkles. Careful not to overheat and melt it.

Replace felt seal on gas dryer door

Yuck, nothing like replacing the felt, removers will only give you brain damage.I would find something hard plastic to scrap it off to prevent scraping of the finish. Dont give up a burn it off, I know from experience. Try the red plastic scrapers from Ace Hardware, there cheap by a dozen just in case the person who installed the felt had a seizure with the glue!
