I have ice build up on bottom of freezer that will leak water onto floor. I remove the ice but it returns in time and water on floor once again...would this be a door gasket leaking or something else?
Answer David, first check the freezer baskets, rails and back wall to make sure there's nothing blocking the drawers from rolling/sliding all the way back and into the proper position. You probably don't need a freezer gasket, but you do need to check and clean the gasket and front flange of the refrigerator and freezer. Make sure the refrigerator is level and all four feet are on solid flooring. Then recheck and make sure the drawer is aligned to the front flange and sealing properly. If all's OK, then you'll need to remove the back wall and check the defrost drain pan and tube for a clog/restriction causing the defrost water to flow out the cover and into the freezer.
I would like to replace the freezer gasket on this amana refrigerator. Can you offer any guidance re: removal, install and part #?
Answer Hello Bepa! The freezer door gasket is part number W10436250. Pull the old gasket off. The new gasket will press into the door liner. 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. Hope this helps!
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
Is the freezer door gasket magnetic? Mine is NOT.
The gasket is leaking moist room air causing frost inside and freezing coils, cutting off air flow to the refrigerator section.
What do you advise?
Answer Tom, Yes, the "flat face" of the seal is magnetic. First thing , check and make sure the refrigerator is level in both directions, or slightly higher(1/8 - 1/4 inch higher) in the front and all four feet or rollers are on the floor solidly. Roll the freezer basket assembly(s0 out to the full open position and check to make sure there is nothing sticking out the back of the baskets, or something hasn't fallen behind the bins or onto the bottom of the floor. Check the alignment gears , rod, and "teeth of the side wall rails for obstructions as well. The last check will be to the door panel itself, make sure it is level and aligns to the front flange properly so it seals to the front of the cabinet. You may have to align the door on the door bracket itself. Thanks and Good Luck
