Gasket Case

It was 90+ degrees in Indianapolis last weekend. One good way to keep your cool is to test your refrigerator gaskets to be sure they’re sealing properly. If they’re not, you may need a visit from your favorite appliance repair guy sooner than later. Here’s an easy test for your fridge.

Close a dollar bill in your refrigerator door. Gently pull on the dollar bill. There should be a tug. If the dollar bill slides right out, then you likely need a new gasket. Be sure to do this test around the entire seal of the door.

A weak gasket means your refrigerator will be working on overdrive to keep cool. And that’s not cool.
