This almond door gasket is used to seal the refrigerator door when closed to keep the cool air inside and the room air out.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Located the many screws which hold the inside surface of the door on. The screws are located between the seal and the inside surface; you have to hold back the seal to find the screws.The seals are attached to this inner surface by a snug fit, and clamped in place when the screws are tightened again. Its simpler than it sounds.Finally, it is wise to get a food safe RTV sealant to glue down the corners of the door seals to make they don't scoot around during the life of the seal.

I started with the freezer door. I lifted the old gasket from the inside edge to get to the hex head screws that attach the plastic inside liner to the outer door. I did not need to start at any one point so I picked a screw and removed it then I worked my way around the door. I was careful to not drop the liner when I removed the last screw. I removed the liner and pulled the old seal out of its seating grove and replaced it with the new seal. Then I used a hair dryer to fix a few places where the seal was deformed from the packing. The heat helped to get the magnetic seal back into the correct shape. I only had one corner to fix the rest of the seal was fine right out of the box. I applyed a little sealer just as the instruction said to do and then reinstalled the linner and new seal. Then I went through the same process for the refrigerator door. Not a hard job just a lot of screws to remove and then put back. The seal its self took about five minutes. Thanks for the parts!Chris
followed documentation from Frigidaire website.
You lift the old seal and unscrew the nut, being careful not to break the plastic holding the seal down, do not remove the screw the whole way. If you take your time and be methodic it is not difficult, just time consuming. Remove the old seal and start putting the new seal in. I would advise finger tightening the screws every 12 inches or so as you go. Then go back and tighten each side as you complete it.
