The right side door of the refrigerator will not close properly since the gasket is worn out. I need a replacement gasket for the whole door (not the freezer side) and instructions on how to do it. the refrigerator is 21.5 no frost. Can you help?
Answer Hello Abel,
The part number for the fresh food door gasket is WR24X5231. You will probably need to soak it in hot water to remove any wrinkles caused by packaging and shipping. Once you have installed it you will need to further reshape it by heating it with a hair dryer.
When you have removed the old gasket, only start the screws through the new gasket or the gasket will really seem malformed to the point that no one can get the door to close properly. Once ALL of the screws have been started, go around the door, holding the gasket in the proper position and then tighten them. You have to hold the gasket in position at each point a screw passes through the gasket parts. Good luck!
