I need to replace the door gaskets (both sides) on my Kitchenaide Model Number KBF042FTX00. When I look up the part by model number, it shows me AP3997167 as the part number. However, when I use the compatibility check tool to verify it is the correct part for my model, it comes back that it is NOT the right part.
Answer Hello Ed,
We must apologize for the compatibility tool. It is still in work and still does not recognize all of the part/model numbers. I tried to verify the part number for you but the model number you listed came up as invalid. We will be happy to verify the part compatibility for you if you would please get the model number from your units' I.D. tag and repost. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
I need to replace the gasket on my refrigerator model KBFC42FTS00. This is the right part, but my gasket has a flap on the top and the bottom that sticks out, which covers the door. I can't see these flaps in the diagram above. Can you confirm if the gasket has the 2 flaps?
Also, where can I find instructions on how to install the gasket? Thanks.
Answer Hello Aileen! The refrigerator door gasket is part number 8201809 and the freezer door gasket is part number 2309216. Here is some information on how to install the gaskets on your appliance: Pull the old gasket off. It may be best to soak the new gasket in warm water to help take its shape/form. The new gasket will press into the door liner. You may need to use a hair dryer to form the seal, be careful not to melt it. Hope this helps!
