How to Fix Refrigerator Door Seal

If your fridge or freezer is in need of a new gasket, well you’re going to want to watch this super helpful and super easy to do tutorial on how to fix a refrigerator door seal.  The team at Habitat for Humanity ReStore were kind enough to let Lou demonstrate how to do this project in their showroom.

Before you can replace the refrigerator or freezer door gasket, you need to determine what model number appliance you have.  This can be found inside the door of the unit.

Once you have that info, you can either contact the manufacturer or do some research on-line to order the replacement gasket.  Keep in mind, the gasket could be pricey depending on the make/model so do your homework on different parts suppliers to get the best bang for your buck.

With new gasket in-hand, simply pull out the old and insert the new gasket by hand directly into the channel that runs along all sides of the door.  Be sure it’s a snug fit as a loose gasket can cause your appliance to run unnecessarily to offset any leakage.

And what do you know… you fixed it in 15:00.
