So some days ago my fridge started to make a farting noise all through the night too? I though it was the motor inside well the fridge is 15 or so years old so i figured she will blow up and everything will be off by morning.
So i cleaned it out chucked old food out yadda yadda... Woke up the next day and realised it wasn't the motor at all *sigh* thank goodness! cos i can't really afford a another fridge...
It was the seal and by that i mean it would not close and stick (remember the 90's ad when the lady had money pouring out her fridge because the seal had no suction left ...... You must remember the add!
Anyhow moving along ~ I was not going to call some douche bag out to fix and be charged a few hundred dollars . I know you pretty much can get ripped off these days .
So Dion and i looked around on the net and BINGO! all of 10 seconds we found a D.I.Y. fix your fridge seal. How easy could it be huh? Well not hard . We put the make and model number paid for it and it only took 5 days and cost only $60 including GST! Not bad at all hey.
Left it to Dion
so he read all the instruction and the fridge is working again no more farts or what sounded like a jet plane was inside my kitchen!!!
Before you do anything you must check the size of the door seal is correct.
Simply hold the new door seal up against the old door seal to compare the size.
Find the screws under the door seals which are holding in the plastic liner and door seal.
Sometimes these screws hold in a small metal strip which goes around the door.
Loosen the screws holding the door seal in around the door. Do not take the screws right out.
Once all of the screws are loosened, the door seal should easily slide out from behind the plastic liner.
Completely remove the old door seal, making your way around the entire door.
Make your way around the entire door, until all of the door seal is pushed in by the small lip.
Tighten the 4 bottom corner screws, and 4 top corner screws.
Tighten the rest of the screws. Nearly finished, Continue to check the door as you go, to
make sure that it doesn't twist as you do the job.
successfully installed our own door seal. yippee!!!
WHEN DID YOU LAST CHECK YOUR FRIDGE SEALS?
