Customer Question

Refrigerator model #TFX222S (Upright side by side). (The last couple of numbers may be off...sticker was creased). The freezer door is tight but when closing it the right door opens about a half inch. I think the magnetic seal needs to be replaced and I would like to order this but when I returned to the store where it was purchased I was told that I first needed to pay a $70.00 fee for a repair person to drive 5 blocks to our house to "diagnose this problem" saying that the repair part would cost me $150.00 and if this was not the problem I would be "stuck" with that cost. I am not a "sucker" and just because I am a woman I am asking an "expert" how to deal with this situation. Thank you.

Jon Grella : What color is th gasket?
Jon Grella : I have a partial model number from you and I would need the last few letters or numbers to get the right part for you. If you have the color it would help

The last 3 letters look like 2AS. The rubber section that goes around the fresh food section is white. Is this the same as the gasket? Sorry for being slower than you. I just cannot read the model number clearly and have been pulling and pushing to get the paper straight but this is the best info that I can give..OK

Customer:

Jon...I have given you more information.

Jon Grella : Thank you for the info . The part number I gave you above would be the correct number of the gasket you need to fix the problem.
Jon Grella : Please order the part from any of the websites above and let me know if you need help installing it.
