Leaking refrigerator door wastes energy and in turn this increases your electricity cost putting strain on your compressor as it has to run constantly to keep the fridge cool, subsequently this will be shorting its lifespan.

The seal acts as a gasket keeping heat out and ensuring the cold air does not escape. This is an easy fix but you can try some quick diagnostics before you call us to be sure.

How do I know that I need to replace the seal?

  • One way of telling is when your fridge keeps running more frequently
  • Fridge not cooling enough
  • Increased electricity cost
  • Frail and worn out gasket. Closer look at the gasket can reveal cracks. If you close the door and inspect you can also see gaps between the seal.
  • Cockroaches and ants tend to nest behind seals as it's moist.
  • Running your hand along the edge of the seal with the door closed, if you feel a bit of cold air it show that the seal is not levelled.
