Does anyone have any hints on improving the seal on a top loading fridge and freezer
? The gap is too small for the standard hardware
store rubber gaskets, and our holding plate quickly becomes covered in frost. (In our nearly empty freezer
I tried the very thinnest rubber strip from the hardware
store, but it made the lid stick up. I'd estimate the gap to vary between 1/3 centimeter to 1/10th centimeter. The fact that it varies is a part of the problem.
I'm thinking about spraying the edge of the freezer with Pam, smearing grease or other non-stick and then applying a generous amount of silicone to the lid. Then I could wait until the silicone sets a bit and close the lid. Then I'd trim off any excess.
Does this sound workable? There has got to be a better way.
