This fresh food door gasket is used to seal the refrigerator door when closed to keep the cool air inside and the room air outside.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
No instructions included, so it took a little bit of staring at the new part to figure out how it works. The barbed ridge on the gasket fits into a slot on the door. The flat face of the gasket has an internal magnetic strip that helps keep the seal tight against the steel face of the refrigerator. Installation requires no tools. This is the basic process:1) Unbox the new gasket and get it ready to install so you don't have to leave the fridge open too long.2) Open the door and grab the old gasket at one of the corners and pull away. This will unseat the barbed ridge I mentioned above. Work your way around the door until the whole gasket is free.3) Set aside the old gasket4) Grab a moistened paper towel and wipe down the (now exposed) sealing surface of the fridge and door. 5) Align the new gasket in the door and start pushing the barb into place. I found that the new gasket seemed slightly oversize compared to the original, so it took a little tweaking. What worked for me was to get all the corners seated, then work my way around the door making sure the gasket is fully seated.6) Once you have the new gasket installed, close the door to make sure everything fits OK.7) Open the door again and run your finger along the inside edge of the gasket seal. What you want to do is fold the edge of the gasket down so it lays flat against the outer wall of the door. 8) Shut the door and look from the sides and top to try to spot any gaps. You should be able to poke the gasket from the side and get the magnet strips to click into place. It seems like after a day or so the gasket 'relaxed' and I didn't have to worry about this anymore.9) Dispose of the old gasket. I was able to pull the gasket into four pieces (separating at the corners) so it would fit in my city trash can...

Useing 2 fingers pulled old one out from its seat grove in door and started at one corner pressing the new one in groved slot the old one came out from. Auctually took less than 5 minutes
The repair was very, very easy. The old Gasket was easily removed by pulling at (1) of the (4) corners and simply pull from slot around the full perimeter of the door. No tools of any kind are needed. Replacement of the new Gasket was simply to again start at (1) corner by pushing new gasket into the perimeter slot and using fingers push into the door grove all the way around. This install took no more than 10-15 minutes max.
The repair was super easy. There are no retainer screws to deal with. You just pull the old gasket off of the door and press the new gasket on. I used a large flathead screwdriver to help start the removal by prying the first corner out of the groove. Once you get it started, the rest comes out easy. To put the new gasket on, you just firmly press it into the groove on the door.I've read other instructions that say to soak the new gasket in warm water before installation. I didn't do this. Instead, I just used a hair dryer to heat the gasket once it was on the door. Then I closed the door and ran a finger between the fold in the gasket to make sure there was a good seal between the fridge and the door. Don't open the door for an hour so the gasket will form to the shape of the fridge opening. That's it. It works great now. Problem solved.
At first I tried to insall the new gasket with the door still attached to the refrigerator. It was difficult to assure that the bottom of the gasket was properly installed at the bottom. As a result I removed the door from the refrigerator, finished installing the gasket and then put the door back on the refrigerator
Open door remove old gasket, remove new one out of packaging install new gasket
Took old gasket off and put new gasket into place. Part came in the mail in 2 days. Hardest part was finding the model number of the refrigerator.
The gasket came off as one piece, so all that was needed was to push the new one on. The Door Handle was broken off when we attempted to move it, the repair was removing 3 screws and replacing them with the new Handle and screws. The Kickplate just clipped into place. Everything was looking great untill 2 of the three parts went missing durning shipment. PartSelect refunded the money and sent out new parts. Chalk one up for FedEx. They said they deleiverd the packages(s) When in fact I got shipment 1 of 2. 2 Never showed up. The repair went great and if it wasnt for FedEx, the shiping went great.
take of the old gasket, clean and put the new one on ...that's it....so easy...
