This white fresh food door gasket measures approximately 30-3/4 inches by 39 inches. It is used on many fresh food doors of top mount model refrigerators that have been manufactured since 1980.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The doors had many hex screws. Using the correct socket size was critical. Empty the door shelves first. The screws had to come out because the new seal had slot holes for them to go between. Take off half of the screws from the top and sides and partially remove the old seal. Attach the new seal and do the same with the bottom half. With the new seal on the lower door it at first looks like a poor seal. Gently press the door and hold it for about 5 min. Then the seal is ok. The door can then can be open and shut gently with a good seal. With a good set of sockets the work can go faster than the time given.

Most importantly make sure you get the wrinkles out of the gasket, a step we did not follow exactly, so we ended up having to work the seal a lot more to make it fit properly which of course made the repair take longer than needed. Other than that no problems here
r#1 removed upper hinge bracket, removed icebox door, unscrewed middle hinge bracket, removed main door, extracted broken plastic bushings, pushed in new bushings, reversed process while adjusting doors. works fine now.#2 compared door seal with new one from partselect. Turned out that new seal is not magnetic. Had to return. Door still has bad seal.
Due to some deformity of the gasket, it didn't seal all the way around. The instructions suggested using a heat light to warm the gasket with the door open. That didn't work too well so I closed the door and used a heat gun lightly in the areas it didn't seal. That worked great to soften the gasket so the magnet in the gasket could pull it gasket tight to the refrigerator. I let it cool with the door closed and it now seals perfectly.
