HOW TO INSTALL YOUR FRIDGE OR FREEZER SEAL
Remove seal from box
Lay onto a clean flat surface
Wrinkles and creases can be removed gently by warming the seal under hot water or with a hair dryer as shown
dart push in type removal
Gently remove old seal from door or drawer by pulling from corner of the seal
flap lip/type removal
Unscrew the seal plate and remove the seal from the door, keep the screws and plate in safe place
Be careful with bottom screws in the door plate, they are often rusty and may require close attention.
If the plate is riveted, then simply drill rivets out.
Clean door/drawer and the cabinet face with an approved disinfectant. Leave for 30 secs and wipe dry
DART /PUSH IN TYPE INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION - Hold seal by its corners to keep seal from tearing or magnet breaking. Press the seal firmly into the track/grooves to secure the arrowhead/dart
Press in the corners first and work your way towards the middle of the door. There may be sagging with longer seals but don’t worry as this will correct itself. Run thumb along the edge of the seal to make sure arrowhead/dart is secure
FLAP/LIP TYPE SEAL INSTALLATION
Place the flap of the seal behind the securing plate.
Offer up the seal plate and new seal and screw back onto the door.
Test seal is secure by running thumb along edge of the seal.
- For Best Results align the plate and new seal with a screw each side of the door first
- Be careful, the plate can have sharp edges
- Don’t reuse the old/rusty screws
COMMON PROBLEMS IF SEAL DOESN'T FIT OR DOOR DOESN'T CLOSE
Check if correct profile and measurements were ordered and the correct seals were provided
Check door is not crooked or bent
Cabinet may contain a counter force magnet behind the face (identify by a light grey plastic strip on face of cabinet)
Is the seal catching on the hinge side? Check hinges are aligned
