Fridge & Freezer Door Seals
Fridge and freezer doors seals or gaskets are plastic (although often referred to as being rubber) gaskets with a magnetic strip inside them to seal the door of the fridge or freezer and prevent air ingress into the cooling area of the appliance.
When the door seal is faulty it will often appear to be split or cracked and allow air to seep into the fridge or freezer leading to extended running times and quite probably a build up of frost inside either a fridge or freezer. It is easy to tell if this is the cause and this problem is explained more in-depth in our article on over-freezing fridges and freezers available from this link.
A faulty fridge or freezer door seal should be replaced as quickly as possible as it will mean that the appliance runs for longer which, apart from costing you more money on electricity, can also stress the compressor leading to overheating and premature failure. It also, as stated can cause ice build-up problems.
Since the mid-1980's many door seals, especially on cheaper fridges and freezers, use what is referred to in the trade as a "foamed door". That is that the door seal, the inner door and outer door are placed together and then the insulating foam injected into the door itself. This dries and hardens holding the three together without any screws and, often, these are only supplied as complete assemblies, the door seal not being available separately.
Fridge and freezer door seals are very model specific and we cannot provide size information on most occasions. We also only list those that are considered to be common and where we have reliable model information as many change not only on model numbers but also on production runs of a model, you, therefore, need serial numbers or production numbers to ensure that you get the correct door seal. For this reason, we urge you to ask us specifically for your model unless you can confidently locate the correct door seal.
If your door seal is just split or has a small tear you can try using Sugru, you'll find that with the help of Google. Wonderful stuff and can save you from having the cost and hassle of replacing the door seal.
More information on diagnosing fridge and freezer faults can be found in our basic fault finding guide for refrigeration that is from this link.
You can see a typical example of a rating plate above which will usually be inside the unit.
Almost without exception these days you will find the model number of a fridge or fridge freezer on the left-hand wall of the fridge by way of the rating plate. Getting the correct model and sometimes the serial or service number can be vital in getting the correct tray or shelf you need.
Door Seal Fitting Notes?
Slight deformation of the door seal is normal and does not affect its function.
We recommend straightening the door seal before inserting it into the appliance.
To do this, lay the seal flat for at least 12-24 hours before fitting and if required heat the door seal gently with a hair dryer or hot water and manually reshape it. This can be a requirement on some seals when they are fitted to allow the seal to reshape correctly.
The thickness of the new door seal may deviate slightly from the thickness of the old door seal. This will not affect the closing behaviour and long-term function.
If your appliance has adjustable hinges or hinge attachments, you can optimise the closing behaviour by adjustment of the hinges on some models.

We do like Smeg as the parts, generally speaking, and considering the process of the products that they are for, are reasonably priced and normally easily available. Plus, there are often alternatives as many of the parts are or can be used on other brands.

Cheap Smeg Compatible Spare Parts
There are a number Smeg spare parts that will have what we call pattern equivalent replacements. That is to say that they are not original manufacturer replacements or, they are supplied under a different part number.
This can be confusing and where we advise on a case by case basis as, while some so-called “pattern”, “equivalent” or “compatible” spare parts are low cost knock-off parts that often aren’t very good quality, there are often equally as many that are either as good as the original part or indeed are the original part, just without the original branding.
With Smeg you will quite often find many of the same spare parts used by other manufacturers or brands and, using their part which is exactly the same, can offer a considerable saving on the cost or a replacement part.
Using these can offer you considerable savings on a replacement genuine Smeg spare part and, be just as good if not exactly the same only cheaper.
Or advice out be to ask us for guidance as often trying to fathom what spare part will be suitable can be a challenge for people that do not have the knowledge of parts that we do. Usually when asked, if there is an alternative or compatible spare part that is a decent quality we will tell you about both the original and compatible part when you ask us.

Unit 5/6 Bonnyton Industrial Estate
We are going to get any part/s you order to you as fast as we possibly can.
We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.
Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability. Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.
What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.
The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:
1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.
1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.
* to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.
Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.
If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.
Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.
Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.
Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.
Order Transit Times
If the item you have ordered is in stock and the order is placed before 3.00pm Monday to Friday then we will endeavour to dispatch the order on the same day. Subsequent delivery times are usually between 1-3 working days dependant on the service you have chosen, the time your order is placed and stock availability.
If an item is required for a guaranteed next day delivery please contact us in advance to check that this is possible
Please note that the times given can be subject to availability, however, more than 98% of all orders are delivered on or faster than the estimated times.
Economy courier Service
Orders placed before 3pm on working days will normally dispatch within 24 hours depending on stock availability.
Most orders are expected to reach UK postcodes in 1-4 business days from dispatch using this service.
Your order will receive priority handling, packing and be normally be delivered the next working day after dispatch using DPD or Royal Mail Special Delivery for smaller items where with DPD you also have the ability to change the delivery address with DPD (may cause delay), times and so on, services that are not available on other carrier options.
This option does get the items to you as fast as we can possibly make that happen within the confines of where the stock is held etc.
Please note that on large or bulky items this may be the only option available due to restrictions on other services on both sizes and weights.
Standard Royal Mail Service
Most orders are expected to reach UK postcodes in 1-15 business days from dispatch.
* Royal Mail postal service - This is not a guaranteed next day service, Royal Mail aim to deliver 85% of 1st Class mail items the next working day after posting but this can take longer. Economy services are slower than this and can take several working days to arrive.
Whilst we have tried our best to cover most common questions here, there are some product and location specific exceptions which may also result in additional charges. If this is the case then a member of our sales team will contact you to discuss the various options before the item is dispatched.
Should you have any delivery queries, please contact a member of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not arrange to have a tradesman on site until after your goods have arrived and you have checked them (We will not pay your tradesman's costs in the event that the item is damaged in transit or not suitable for any reason).
