Fridge door seals

Greetings,
I need to replace the seals on both the top and front load doors on the fridge. The seals on the unit now look like they were bought from Home Depot or the local hardware store and I would like to locate some of the hollow thin wall seal with a flat moulded foot. The problem is not the material the old seal is made of but the bond to the frame the door shuts against, the seal has crawled out of position. Does anyone have a material and adhesive they have had success with? I have to defrost about every 10 to 15 days to keep the amp draw down to a reasonable rate.

Go to any any parts store and buy "3M Weatherstrip Adhesive". it is designed to bond rubber/plastic weather stripping to metal/wood parts. Remove the old weatherstripping and solvent clean the base before re-applying it. Use plenty of solvent and clean terry towels or paper towels, to make sure you are bonding to clean material--and clean weatherstripping.
