Fridge Door Seal Replacement 

Before Installation

1. After receiving the gasket/seal, remove it from the box as quickly as possible

2. Lay down the gasket/seal so that it reaches the right environmental temperature

3. Wrinkles and creases (through transportation) can be removed with a hairdryer

4. Clean the door surface and gasket

  

Installation

1. Hold the gasket up by the corners (to prevent broken magnets

2. Install all of the corners first

For Magnetic Seals/Gaskets

1. After installation, magnet-gaskets can have less power of attraction

2. Sometimes the gaskets need a few weeks to reach the right power of attraction

 

Repairs

If a corner is broken, it can be glued together with the 10 seconds glue.

 

If Gasket does not close or seal well after installation:

A: Check that you ordered the correct profile

B: Check that the door is not crooked or twisted

C: Check that the gasket is not wrenched on the hinge side

D: Put the door, without hinges against the refrigerator, then re-install the hinges.
