When should I replace the gasket on my freezer door?
Freezers need to be checked for leaking door gaskets. A freezer that continually loses cold air cannot be operating efficiently. If the gasket is brittle or cracked it should be replaced. Take a dollar bill and close the freezer door on it. If it fits snuggly, the seal is good. But if you can pull out the bill with little or no resistance, a new gasket is needed.
