Check on the door of the refrigerator when you open it next and inspect the rubber seal around the edge. If you have a leaky seal, it’s bad news for the refrigerator. Cool air escapes and the refrigerator has to work overtime to keep the food cold. How do you know if the seal is on its way out?

But if your bill stays firmly wedged and requires some effort to pull out, this is the sign of a healthy seal.Book A Free Service
