My freezer needs a new doorseal (is that the correct word for the rubber
part that is sealing the door against the cabinet?)
It looks like the existing seal is attached to the door by means of double
sided tape (with glue?).
According to the service department of the manufacturere it's difficult for
a DIY-er to install a new seal.
Has anyone experience with this?
No, it just appears that way after years of gunk. Most commonly, the
seal is held against the door by the strip magnet that is inside the
plastic. There are sheet metal screws that fasten it to the door.
Not in general. Unscrew, peel old seal off, clean the surfaces, and
install the new one.
Replacing a door seal is not complicated. I wouldn't take the old seal
off all at once though. Remove the upper third, clean the inner door,
attach the new seal, then the middle, and finally the bottom third.

I can give it, but I suppose it's not known in the US.
It's a German brand: Miele. The type is F5329SEL.
But my question was more in general.
I can imagine there are other brands/types that also have the same
And that someone has experience in replacing it.
