This white fresh food door gasket used to seal the refrigerator door when closed.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Two screws held the icemaker on. You do not even have to take them all the way out to remove the IM. Replacement of the water valve was just as easy except they (parts manufacturer) updated the flange nut with a compression fitting and it took me a minute looking at it before I realize what was going on. The door seal could not be easier, no tools just a few minutes of time

Would have been an easy job but the bottom channel of the refrigerator door that the gasket snaps into was rusty and had to be cleaned out with a screw driver. Took some working with it to figure out why it wasn't snapping in hence the long time to fix it.The freezer door gasket went much better. It had been folded for shipping and had to be heated per the instruction to ensure a seal. That was easier than I expected it to be. The seal seems fine now. No moisture. I wish I had done this sooner!
first started with the bottom corner then went across the bottom and proceeded to go around the refrigerator. this made it hard to get the last corner in the track. I redid it by getting all four corners set in the track then worked on pushing the sides of the gasket in. This worked much better.
I had to figure out how to remove the old gasket and install the new one on my own since there were NO INSTRUCTIONS. The old gasket had to be cut off; the new one had to be warmed in hot water to make it flexible enough to flatten out. Once that was done, I had to trim excess plastic from the inside corners before the gasket would press into place at the corners.
This was much easier than I anticipated. The most time doing the repair was waiting for the water to soften the new seal. The old one pulled right out, she cleaned it off and I pushed the other into place. Part select got it to me quicker than expected and when I phoned the order in and inquired about whether I needed the retainer behind it she asked someone and found I did not which saved me $16.They are great and this whole transaction went too smooth...
The part arrived It said to warm it to take out wrinkles but not even a picture of how to take off the old or put on the new. Everything on the internet in general about gaskets explained about unscrewing the old gasket but I couldn't find any screws. The user feedback mentioned no tools and that was our only clue and the only reason we finally succeeded. We looked at it repeatedly over 5 days. Pulled and pushed and could not figure out how it was attached or how to unattach without breaking things. I finally got out a screw driver and tried to pry it off. An hour later I got a corner piece started to come off. We pulled all the way around and got it off easily once started. We again struggled to put the new one on. Couldn't really tell what area of the gasket fit back into the crease. It kept falling off. Finally we pushed the correct edge of the gasket into the crease. VERY difficult. Fat edge fits into skinny crease. Took a lot more strength than expected so it didn't seem right but it was. Took a while and a lot of strength to work the corners and sides in. Eventually got the whole thing on. A picture and 4 sentences would have been a big help. Wouldn't try it again. To anyone else...No screws. Use a lot of strength. I hope someone publishes a picture for you.
i pulled the old gasket off, and placed the new one in place, starting at the corners. then i lined up the insert in the gasket with the gap where it is to go and ran my fingers along the gasket, pressing in with my thumb.
it was so easy I need to put an ad online to replace gaskets got the right part on time get fit
I loosened the corner of the seal and easily pulled the gasket out of the track around the door. I placed the corners of the new gasket in place, then worked the straight edges into the track. This is one of the easiest repairs I've done, and it saved us having to replace the fridge.
My husband thought he would have to set aside time on the weekend to replace the gasket. It was delivered and I unpacked it put it on and that was that.
Took old gasket off put new on. Gasket came well packaged so only ran hot water over it briefly and put it on.
I took all of the creases out of the new gasket with hot water as described on the delivery box. I laid the gasket on the floor and let it cool while I took the refrigerator door off, laid it on a table, and removed the old gasket. I started the new gasket into the groove at one corner and pressed it into place by sliding my thumb along the gasket and seating it as I went. It was an extremely simple task which took about 2 minutes. The most time is consumed in removing and replacing the door
Wasn't sure what I would find underneath the old gasket, so I went slowly at first, but once the first side was off, the rest of the gasket came off quickly....and the metal track under it was clean and in good condition. After cleaning the areas where the gasket would seal, my daughter and I each started at a corner and placed the gasket into the track. Entire thing done in less than 10 mins. Piece of cake...only issue was a crease in the outer cushion area....I couldn't seem to smooth it with the warm water bath....it may uncrinkle with time...right now it is leaving a very small space when the door shuts. Saved me the expense of a new unit right now...hoping this takes care of the cooling issue I have with the unit keeping fresh veggies fresh.
I removed the gasket starting in one of the corners, until the gasket was completely removed.I then replaced the gasket with a new one by starting in one of the corners and pressing it on to the track around the door.
