Default French doors not sealing after replacing mullion & gaskets
Model Number: PFSS5RKZH   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I recently replaced the French door gaskets and mullion bar on our GE French door refrigerator. There was some black mildew on the gaskets I couldnít get clean, and there was some rust on the mullion bar that broke the spring on top and was rusting on the bottom.

Since then, Iíve noticed the doors donít really seem to seal when you close them. You donít get that vacuum suction like it used to. The gaskets are new, clean and appear to be seated correctly.

Just got home from vacation and the fridge box was 64į.

The ice maker is in one of the doors, still making ice and frozen.

Before I left, I noticed some ice build up on the air vent at the back of the fridge.

Iíve read some of the other posts on things that could go wrong when the fridge is warm and the freezer is cold. Not sure if there is something else Since this all started with replacing the gaskets and mullion.

Thanks,

Bob
