GTH21GCEAWW Freezer door seal issues

5 posts in this topic

Having repeated issues r.e. the freezer door seal not ...sealing. Have changed and still seems inadequate. Second ref with same problem.  It is a press in type gasket. Leaves gaps,air leaks. Tried hair dryer, Steamer, tweaking door, which won't tweak because it is a solid foam door.  Not my first day at the rodeo, these gaskets just seem too thin to seal properly. Any help is welcomed.

Where are you seeing the gaps?  Top, bottom, hinge or handle side?

Along the top and bottom center.

Here's a trick that might work for you.  Tear a paper towel and roll it into a roll the same length of the gaps.  Carefully heat the affected area of the gasket with a hair dryer and insert the rolled paper towel under the gasket lip at the gaps.  Adjust the paper towel rolls until the gaps seal against the cabinet.  Heat the gasket again then close the door, making sure the gaps seal.  Leave the door closed as long as possible (overnight if necessary), allowing the gasket to mold to the cabinet.  Afterwards, remove the paper towel and check seal.
