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.

I don't like the idea of someone just recharging a system without knowing what's truely wrong.
At this point, based on what you've said, I strongly recommend you call G.E. factory service or a dealer with a qualified service tech in the G.E. line.
G.E. has made the use of a lot of solid state boards, which may well be some if not all of your problems. It will be pricey, but a refrigerator is not a toy. I would advise the tech as well, that you had a recharge performed, and let him follow up on it.
Sounds like whoever worked on your machine isn't well qualified to service it. Newer G.E.'s can be a real bear. Sorry....

The R600a is the isobutane gas in the system. The 412 is probably the alternate gas to be used. The KG2 is probably the weight. You have the make & model number above. most magnetic door seals will fit you buy it in a roll and cut it to size.

No, there is a heater in the seal of the doors to keep the doors from icing up, if it is hot to the touch then the heaters are going bad and must be replaced. You can replace it yourself by removing the door seals, and then removing the heating element that runs the whole door. When you do this make sure that the unit is unplugged.
