Question:

The gasket for the food door,what are the dimensions and do these come looking smaller and need to be heated to stretch to put on? Regards.

Grace for model number 106.8678211
Answer:

Hi Grace, Thank you for the question. We do not have the dimensions of the gaskets sorry but I can verify the PartSelect Number PS328687 is the correct gasket for the model number you provided. I have not heard the gaskets need to be stretched but,when the gaskets are packed in the box it can create bends or kinks in the gaskets, so we suggest soaking them in warm water or heating them with a hair dryer to remove the kinks. Hope this helps!

Needed to replace refrigerator door gasket

My refrigerator is 17 years old. The gasket seal around the door finally needed to be replaced. I ordered the part from Partselect.com. They had the cheapest price, including shipping. The part alone was still expensive, though, (almost $60!) for just being a piece of rubber.

There are little screws all around the inside of the refrigerator door, under which part of the gasket rests. A socket-set was needed to determine which one would fit the screws. The first step is to remove the old gasket. I discovered (the hard way!) that it makes sense to unscrew them a few at a time to remove the old gasket, and screw them back in, until you are ready to install the new one. My refrigerator door was not one "solid" piece. It is two pieces screwed together (with those little screws), and has insulation in the middle of the two pieces. If you unscrew too many at one time, the two pieces of the door will come apart, so don't do that.

When it was time to put the new gasket on, again, it made sense to do a few at a time. I started at the top of the door. Along with the screws, there is a metal rod that holds the gasket in place. Once you unscrew the screws, you place the back flap of the gasket underneath the metal rod. The gasket itself has holes that should line up with the holes for the screws. The rest of the gasket goes on top of the metal rod and screws. Then put the screws back in, using your socket wrench, and begin the next section (ie one side of the door). Work your way around the door, doing one side at a time. The bottom was the most difficult part to get to. Be careful not to run your fingers along the metal rod to push the gasket. I did cut my finger a bit. (Use something other than your finger to do the job.) The whole thing took me a while, but I got it done, while my HUSBAND sat and watched tv.

Door gaskets were worn and cracked.

First I removed all the machine screws from
behind the fold of the gasket. Removed the metal
strips that hold the gasket in place as well as
the door shelves. Gently reattached the new gaskets, behind the metal strip and re-hung the shelves. A hot air blow dryer helped keep the gaskets flexible. Whole operation just takes a little patience.

Existing gasket torn and deformed

loosened screws holding gasket, removed old gasket, installed new gasket tightening screws as I went from top first. The only problem I encountered was that the door did not fit correctly when I finished tightening the screws. It was tight at the top and open at the bottom (gasket not even touching refrigerator frame). I did not realize until then that the outer metal door is quite flimsy and is only made stiff by the molded plastic interior door liner and shelves. I simply had to loosen the screws I had just tightened, align the door by closing it and then tightening the screws so that the door retained that position.
