Yesterday I ordered a replacement gasket for my Amana refrigerator after speaking to your sales people. They had directed me to the part (AP4013369). I was amazed when the part arrived today, but when I looked at it, it doesn't appear to be magnetic like the original one. I was told that this is not the original part but I just expected the replacement would have the magnetic strip.
The reason I needed a replacement is I switched the hinges so the door opens the other way and noticed that the gasket had folded over at the bottom and was not forming a good seal (on the refrigerator door only. The freezer seems to be fine). The magnetic strip really seems to make a difference in forming a tight seal.
Can you confirm that the gasket I received doesn't have a magnetic strip? Can you find out if there is a replacement gasket with the magnetic strip?
ANSWER Hello Mark! The refrigerator door gasket 12550109Q is the correct manfuacturer replacement gasked used on your Amana Refrigerator model number TSI18A3W (Mfg # P1182106WW). This gasket is magnetic and the magnetic strip is enclosed in the gasket. Thanks!
