Instructions for replacing the refrigerator seal
First, get a gasket that fits your fridge.
- If you are unsure which seal you need, write down the brand and device designation of your refrigerator and seek advice from a specialist retailer.
- Most seals are just clamped. Some are additionally fastened with small screws or clamps.
- If necessary, now loosen the screws or clamps.
- Pull off the old rubber completely.
- Then clean the edges of the refrigerator door thoroughly.
- Warm water with washing-up liquid is sufficient for this.
- If the fridge seal you bought is too long, wait until you have reinserted the rubber before cutting it short.
- Start in a corner and press the seal back into the gap provided.
- Depending on the device, now fasten the screws or clamps.
- Now you can cut off the excess rubber with a cutter knife.
- Make sure there is no gap so that the door closes really tight.
- Finally, press the two ends together.
