   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 overfreezing 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 you're door seal is just split or has a small tear you can try using Sugru, you'll find that in the store in the tools and glues section. 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.

Where to find the rating plate on your fridge to order spare parts

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.

Most Smeg spares that are stocked in the UK will be dispatched in 24-48 hours, factory order spares will usually be shipped 7-10 working days however most common Smeg spare parts are readily available. 

We do like Smeg as the parts, generally speaking and considering the proces 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 decent quality we will tell you about both the original and compatible part when you ask us.
