Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.

I think you just unscrew and take off the metal trim on the door and then replace it. I have a similar issue where did you find the gasket for sale. If you dont mind could you email me at maclaren at tulane dot edu with that info. Thanks, James

In short no as long as you get the correct seal type from a spares shop, or Whirlpool. Just make sure that it is straight and there are NO gaps or splits in it when you refit it. Usually these will come pre cut to size for the particular model of FF but you can also buy seal strip on a reel from many spares shops. Also when you have removed the old seal make sure that you use a degreasing cleaner to clean around where the old seal was located and make sure the area is dry before fitting the new one.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa.
I`ll start by letting you know first the heat between the doors is normal...to a degree, and done by design to help prevent moisture along the "breaker strip"/divider.
If all else appears fine, temp. Ok, fans running, no significant frost build up on freezer back wall, it's likely nothing to be concerned about.
**Just be sure the condensor fan isn't jammed and still turning.** The fan at the back next to the compressor.
The amount of heat can be determined by several factor's such as,
1) temperature setting - lower ( colder ) the temperature is set the more the run time the hotter the strip.
2) The ambient temperature - hotter the environment the more the unit runs to compensate, hence the hotter the strip.
3) The amount of "fresh" content added to the unit ( especially freezer section if unfrozen items added ) - new items add a lot of warmth thus demanding the unit to run more to remove this heat (btu`s or british thermal unit`s )causing the strip to be hotter.
4) Build up of dust & dirt on the condensor coils - this also causes the unit to run excessively which in turn makes for more heat on this strip.
These are all things which can and do determine the amount of heat between the doors.
Another factor to always consider is of course If it is hot where you live the unit may just be running more to compensate as with other factors I mentioned.
Hope this answer's your question and let me know if I can assist you further. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck moving forward.
