Nova Kool door gaskets

Postby deising » Sun Aug 14, 2016 6:28 am

We love our 7.5 cu ft Nova Kool, but noticed the frequency of needing to defrost the fridge compartment is climbing to every 4 days or so. I put a US dollar bill (they are different than Canadian in thickness and texture) under the gasket all along the perimeter and can pull it out easily. I see that the bellows portion of the gasket is very pliable, but the sealing face of the gasket is quite hard.

I sent the above info to Nova Kool support this morning, but being a Sunday, I won't expect an answer right away. In the meantime, anyone here have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Duaiane, If you open the door and remove the latch, and shim up under center of latch it will hook better. I user 2 layers of 40 Mil of
uncured neoprene,it,s a roofing product, sticky on one side. You need about 2 square inches, total 80 mil thick. get on Salon seat ,it,easy. Your local roofer will probably give it to you. close door firmly. worked for me, thanks to John Cummings. Roger on Teamwork

Thanks, Roger. We will take possession of a new gasket in a few days and we'll see how that goes.
