My original door gasket had a swollen raised ridge area to which the inner liner of the door captured that swollen part of the gasket and after the screws beyond this area were tighten down, then the liner would hold the gasket in place. The new gasket doesn't have that swollen area , but instead it has holes in the gasket for which the screws would have to be removed to slide its gasket farther under the liner to position it under the holes for the screws to hold gasket down. What I don't know is, weather this is the replacement gasket for my unit or is this a substitute gasket that will work. Thank You
Answer Cecil, You do have the correct refrigerator door gasket 70048-2 for the model number you supplied. It has been "substituted" several times over the last 30+ years, but it will work on your refrigerator. You're correct, you will need to remove all the liner screws to install this type door gasket, and you need to be careful in the corners, so you don't damage the liner or the gasket. You may find it easier to allow the gasket to soak in hot water for a while before you install it, and may want to have a blow dryer handy to help keep it warm and pliable in the corners. Also apply a thin coat of Vaseline to the hinge side of the gasket and the front flange of the refrigerator, to help the gasket seat and not roll or crimp up when installed.
