This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The old gaskets were easy to pull out. At first I thought the bead of the new ones were supposed to slide into place. Then I just loosened the phillips head screws that hold the inner door panel. I loosened them all and pried the inner door out about 4 mm. the the bead of the new gasket slid in with relative ease. Then I tightened the screws back up, I just had to peel back the gasket to get at each one. The gasket holds itself in place with no adhesive.

Door would not stay closed so I decided to replace the gasket... The new gasket install was easy and quick. I removed the liner and took off the old gasket, placed the new gasket on the liner and reinstalled the liner. However that did not fix the original issue of the door not closing. I followed all the instructions listed on the web site but none corrected the problem. The door on this model has no adjustment. So I adjusted the leveling wheels to tilt off center towards the back. That helped but still did not resolve the problem... I then closed the door slowly to see if it was being interfered with, As it turns out it was being hit by the bottom of the inside of the refrigerator. Since I could not adjust the door, I used the front leveling wheels to compensate for the lack of door adjustment. I slowly kept adjusting the w heels to see what effect it had. I finally adjusted them to the point were the door now closes and seals on its own. I’m guessing that over time the liner became malformed and caused the door to hit the inside of the refrigerator. After it started working I checked the level side to side and front to back. Side to side is good and there is a slight tilt to the rear.
Removed old gasket. tried to mount new gasket with a few screws, but weight of new gasket created a sag, so I removed door and laid on a table. Installed new gasket, as it layed flat and square on the table. Installation became a simple job.
First I let the gasket lay flat on a hard surface in the sun for several hours. Then I removed old gasket and placed new gasket in place and utilized some glue substance to hold it in place.Easy enough--hope refrigerator will be more energy efficient
Simply removed (many) screws from the door shelving panel. Removed old gasket, installed new one and screwed it back on. A rather simple repair that will allow me continued use of my older fridge.
took off the old one installed the new one
