I have investigated this site already and read that response as well. I also already talked with Sears direct parts but the part is $ 105.00 plus tax and I am not 100% sure that's what we need! But the freezer was made in 1998 so its older! but I was wondering if one of the experts could say whether the door gasket would fix the problem we are having!

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the frost build up. Unless the gasket is torn, it should not need to be replaced. Check for gaps, where it may not be making a good seal. If there are gaps, a hair dryer can be used to smooth them out. Just be careful not to get the gasket too hot and melt it. It's also possible the door may have flexed and is not closing good. In this case, the door can be flexed back in position. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Can anything be put onto a freezer gasket, to help improve the seal?

A:

If the door is not sealing even when closed all the way you can most likely order a replacement seal - if one is not available you can do what I did on an ancient freezer I had - go to your hardware store and get some sticky back thin foam insulation - the thin stuff about 1/8" thick by 3/4 wide and run a strip all along the sides where the original seal meets the body of the freezer. make sure your new insulation has no gaps all the way around so you dont create more places that allow air to leak in. Hope that works for you.

A:

In this type of freezer, the shelves are the coils and they will or should develop a full frost pattern. All of the shelves should get a full frost pattern or it indicates a seal system problem. All a gasket has to do is, make a seal against the cabinet, it does not have to be tight. A good check is, to use the dollar bill test. If you can slide a dollar bill, between the gasket and the cabinet, without any resistance at all, then the gasket is not sealing. If you do get some resistance, it's ok. You can also check the freezer temperature, if it's getting too cold. Normal freezer temperature is between 0 - 5 degrees. If it gets below zero, excessive frosting can occur. In this case, usually just setting the control to a warmer setting will correct it. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.
