- Fix-It Beginner
This seal looked and felt much better quality than the original seal but after the freezer was on for awhile, I realised that the drawers were freezing up because there was air getting in. On checking the seal,there was a gap half way across the top & most of the way down on the left hand side because the outer part of the seal was not sticking to the frame of the freezer when the door was shut. I could rectify this by running the handle of a knife in the gap so it pushed the seal against the frame so there was no air gap. However this is not satisfactory to have to do this every time one closes the door. The original seal did the same after using the freezer for awhile & went brittle which is why we bought this new seal. Unless we have done something wrong in fitting the seal, it must be a design fault. Also I cant see where any magnets are as presumably if it was magnetic the seal would stick to the frame when the door is closed.
