Do I need an appliance repair person to install a replacement gasket for our Amana bottom freezer door?
Answer Hello Julie,
This is a screw on type gasket 12550116Q. What you would need to do is, with door open, loosen screws under the lip of the door seal. Remove the door seal and install new seal. There will be a lip that goes under the liner before you screw it down.
Need to replace bottom freezer gasket. What number is the correct one for this model and how do you replace it?
Answer Sue, I found model number BX22S5L. The freezer gasket is part number 12550116Q. Loosen the screws holding the inner panel and gasket. Pull the old gasket off. The new gasket will press into the door liner. With the installation, you will have to screw in the corners first and do every other screw on each side to tighthen. It may be best to soak the new gasket in warm water to help take its shape/form You may need to use a hair dryer to form the seal, be careful not to melt it. Thanks.
