I dont think you are able to see my solution i posted for your refrigeraotr problem but here it is

I dont think you are able to see my solution i posted for your refrigerator problem, but here it is

  • yes, your discoveries in the machine like ice blocking the vents contributed to the problem.
  • I would also clean the coils under the machine as they will cause a problem with the temps.
  • the door seal can be temporarily glued with 100% silicone in order to test to see if it was the main problem. the door seal would cause condensation around the bottom drawers and possibly freezing the airflow vents.

there is a trick to changing the door seal. when you buy it is folded up and wrinkled.
  • if it is a sunny day you can unfold the door seal and lay it out on the hood of a car and the heat from the sun will soften up the material and the wrinkles will go away. if it is cold outside or raining then use a hair dryer to heat the door seal as you have it laid out in its rectangular shape.
  • once you have the door seal relaxed and ready to put on then take the door off the refrigerator (never try to put the door seal on while the door is still hanging).
  • lay the door on a large flat surface like a table or floor
  • the door seal should either be held in by a groove or secured by 1/4" hex screws
  • loosen all the screws (don't take them out)
  • take off the old gasket
  • fit the new gasket around the door just the way you want it.
  • then while the door is still laying flat tighten the screws starting with the center screws on each side of the door.
  • then put the door back on and your done.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Comment by mikedurland, posted on Aug 11, 2008 when you glue the door seal, put a piece of wax paper over the freshly glued door seal and close the door. this will mold the door seal as it dries to fit the refrigerator.
Comment by mikedurland, posted on Aug 12, 2008 the door seal is not a "peel and stick" from some hardware store like 'Pyrhyc' said, these are LIES, as you will see. dont waste your time going to a hardware store. door seals have to the right size for your refrigerator. you can buy them from an appliance parts store or sears or online. shop around because they can be expensive.

Fix ya are morons

Hey ... I dont know about the others, I am just a ordinary guy trying to answer questions which posters post. I try to do the best I can. I try to use life experience and common sense in my answers. Frankly, if you dont like the pictures, dont view them. BTW, this is a free site and you are free to come and you are free to go.

The men and women posting the answers dont select the pictures, I think the pics are selected either by the site or the people asking the questions. In either event, is your expectation really that Fixya has a picture of every device that people ask about? Next you would complain about the color not matching your device! Give me a break!

I have only asked one question here on Fixya ... and I think the site selected the picture ... (My question has never been answered yet, I have supplied more than 500 answers to all types of questions.)

I think most other experts would feel the same

... and what have you done today to make this a better community my friend?????

Refrigeraotr is out but freezer still works

doesnt make adiff how you loaded freezer, shouldnt affect fan operation anyway. if you have a meter you can check for proper voltage(110v) to fan wires and if you have power youll need to replace fan, easy enough to do just a few screws and about $50.. part number 5304445861.
