Correspondingly, how do you fix the gap on a refrigerator door gasket?
Fixing Gaps Close the refrigerator door and inspect the gaps. Rub petroleum jelly on the entire gasket to fix small gaps. If there are large gaps that you can push paper through, or if rubbing petroleum jelly on the gasket doesn't fix the gap, replace the gasket.
The gasket is a flexible strip of plastic or silicone, and it is fixed to the edge of your refrigerator door. Over time, the gasket might tear or degrade, weakening the seal that keeps your refrigerator cold. While some gaskets are held in place using screws or are snapped on, others can be secured with glue.
