How can I tell if we need to replace the door gasket? The food is soft, and we get an frosty build up on the top shelf.
Answer Hi Patti. If you can look from the sides of the door and see if it is shutting squarly and not sagging on the hinge or needing shimmed. You will need to feel all underneath the bottom of the door gasket to see if it is not ripped or the inside gasket magnet showing. Warm outside air will come in and migrate to the coldest spot and collect. Examine all of it very closely and you will find the leak. The door Gasket is part # 216522312. Thank you.
