I installed the seal per the instructions. The seal is too thick for the door to shut on its own (I have to hold it shut to keep it shut). The latch striker and the latch itself ARE NOT ADUSTABLE on this model. The old seal was thinner in profile. I have rigged a latch to keep the door shut hoping the seal would take a set and allow the door to shut - it has not after a week. What do you recommend?
ANSWER Hello Charlie. The manufacture recommends, if the door is not staying closed after gasket replacement, to replace the strike with this one 8574157. Hope this helps.
