Steps to Verify Issue:

Door or drawer gasket ship with the replacement refrigerator gasket. Instructions are the same for refrigerator and freezer gaskets.

To replace a door or drawer gasket on the 648PRO:

  1. Allow gasket to reach room temperature before removing from the shipping carton.
    • CAUTION: Hair dryers get extremely hot and can melt door gaskets! Use extreme caution to avoid over-heating!
      • Do NOT use a hair dryer on an installed gasket. Only use it to warm up a gasket outside the unit.
    • CAUTION: Do not over-tighten screws! Doing so may strip screw holes. If this should occur, use an alternate #10 screw (part number 6200150).
  2. Gaskets have a "memory" to their original shape, so distortions are temporary.
    • To help in returning gasket to original form, immerse gasket in WARM water.
    • Or lay gasket on flat surface, then use a hair dryer and CAREFULLY pass heat over distorted area(s), keeping hair dryer 8" to 10" away from gasket.
    • Do NOT use a hair dryer on an installed gasket. Only use it to warm up a gasket outside the unit.
  3. A dart at the back of the door and drawer gaskets fit into channels built into the door and drawer liners.
  4. To remove a drawer gasket, the drawer must be removed from the unit.
  5. To remove a door or drawer gasket, pull the gasket dart from the channel in the door or drawer.

Note: On older models, silicone may have been used at the corners of the gasket to help hold it in place.
