Refrigerator sealing strip replacement is not complicated, you can replace it yourselfRefrigerator sealing strip replacement is not complicated, you can replace it yourself
1. When the door seal of the refrigerator is damaged, deformed, twisted, weakened in elasticity, many cracks, not strong in magnetism, and there is stolen goods that cannot be cleaned, you should choose to replace the door seal.
2. The door seal is damaged, deformed, and after aging, the refrigerator will not be tightly sealed, and the leakage will be severe. It is easy to make the refrigerator work for a long time, the downtime is short, the sides of the refrigerator are hot, and the frost is serious; it leads to the freshness of the refrigerator, poor freezing effect, and compression The machine is turned on frequently, which greatly shortens the service life of the refrigerator and leads to an increase in power consumption. The refrigerator door seal is magnetic and easily absorbs dust and oil smoke in the air. The door seal has black spots, dirt, mildew and is difficult to clean, resulting in unsanitary storage of food, which will affect human health.
3. Determine the brand and model of the refrigerator. This refrigerator has (for example, Haier-BCD-118M1), measure the length and width of the seal to be replaced, and then choose the model of the seal provided by the manufacturer. Due to the long use time of the original refrigerator, there may be a slight error in the size of the sealing strip, generally about 5mm.
4. It is best to check with the merchants on the data determined above when buying. After all, they are experts, so it is more safe.
5. Remove the old door seal, and use detergent water to clean the refrigerator door. The deep groove of the card slot and other places that cannot be reached can be cleaned with a cotton stick sticked with detergent water. After cleaning, wipe it clean , It is best to rinse with water.
6. Take out the new door seal and press the upper two corners into the card slot, then the lower two corners, and then use both hands to press the card slot into the middle from the corner. Press the four sides repeatedly in this way.
7. If there is a gap in the installation of the new door seal, you can use an electric blower (hot air) to blow out while blowing against the gap.
8. The rubber and magnetic strips of the new door seals are not yet qualitative, so the magnetic properties are generally not very good. You can use hot water of about 70° to install before installing the new door seal, or use a hair dryer to blow the door seal soft and then use adhesive tape to push the refrigerator door tightly for one night. Basically, the door seal will be shaped.
9. The sealing of the door seal and the magnetism of the door seal are slowly restored. The magnetic recovery of the refrigerator compartment takes about 3-5 days, and the magnetic recovery of the freezer compartment takes 1-3 days. Older refrigerators may take longer. During this period, it is best to close the door of the refrigerator with adhesive tape for three days. Try to avoid opening the door of the refrigerator, as this effect is better.
