IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS
If your fridge isn't getting as cold as it should, the door seal may be damaged or old, and you'll need to replace it with a new one.
The area that's most likely to get worn is the section on the hinged side of the door.
To remove the old door seal, gently but firmly pull it away from the fridge, starting from one corner and working your way round.
Before you fit the new seal it's a good idea to clean and dry the area, to make sure the new seal sticks on properly. It's recommended to use a specialist fridge cleaner, which is available on the Buyspares website.
To fit the new seal, start at one corner and make sure it's pushed firmly into the groove all the way around.
If the new seal's a bit squashed from being packaged up; you can help it expand back into shape by blowing it with a hair dryer on a warm setting.
If you have a frost-free American fridge freezer, its worth noting that it's normal for one door to pop open momentarily when you slam the other door.
