How much is this going to cost me?
Typically, if fitting yourself, you can expect to pay around $50 - $80 for your fridge seal, $25 - $70 for your freezer seal or $95 - $130 for a pair to suit your fridge / freezer (you will save by replacing both at the same time).
Some seals may cost more, request a quote for more details.
When will I receive my seal?
We aim to dispatch your seal within TWO days, sometimes this may take a little longer but rest assured, if there is a problem, we will contact you to try to resolve within this time frame.
Can I collect my seal?
Yes, Collection is possible from the Willaston area, but we may need to manufacture it first, contact us for more info.
Where is the model number on my fridge?
Generally, model numbers will be inside your fridge, sometimes on the left hand side internal wall, on the back wall or the kick plate at the bottom. Occasionally you will find it on the inside of the door, they are rarely applied to the rear of the fridge.
If you can’t find your model number we still may be able to help using Brand names, sizes of seals and pictures of your seal.

Yes we can, as long as you are located in the Adelaide Metro, Northern Suburbs or Barossa Valley areas.
How much will postage be?
Postage is currently $9.95 for standard customers delivered to a street address (not trade accounts) to Mainland Australia.
Can I fit my seals myself?
Sure! Most common domestic fridges will have a screw-in or push-in seal. We send out comprehensive fitting guides with our seals and we are available for help and support by telephone and email. Generally, if you are handy enough to use a screwdriver then you should be able to change your own seal.
Why should I bother changing my seals?
For your health, your wallet and your planet!!
Split seals can harbour bacteria and stop your doors from closing (which can raise fridge / freezer temperatures), more importantly, if your fridge or freezer is not sealing correctly, your motor will be running more to cool the warm space, this will cost more to run and put extra pressure on the fan motor and compressor. FACT.
Measuring your Seals
Measure your seals along the face of the seal from outside edge - to outside edge, we will require a full width and a full length in mm's (i.e 765mm x 930mm)
Occasionally we will also need the seal depth, to measure this, make sure the fridge door is closed, measure the gap between the fridge door and the fridge body...
...... Always measure the hinge side where possible!
Finding Your Model Number
Finding your model number should be fairly straight forward, most domestic and commercial units (with the exception of custom built units) will have a manufacturers plate, normally found inside your fridge space.
...... Manufacturers plate
Manufacturers normally place a silver or white label inside your fridge space on the left or right wall, at the back on the inside about half way up, on the side of the door (inside), on the door frame at the bottom or on the inside of the door. Don't worry if you cat find your model number, we can usually find the seal you need but you may have to send us a couple of photos and some measurements!
Energy Saving - Domestic
Always make sure there is enough room behind your fridge / freezer to enable airflow
Never over- fill a fridge or freezer
Keep condenser coils (normally at rear of fridge) clean
Fridges kept in direct sunlight or next to ovens use more power to keep cool
If doors don't close properly adjust door or change seals
Never put hot items straight into fridge or freezer
Energy Saving - Commercial
Ensure enough airflow around fridge / freezer condensing unit
Never over- fill fridge / freezer
Ensure condenser coil is cleaned at least once a year
Make sure doors close properly before walking away
Never put hot items into fridges or freezers
In cool rooms and freezer rooms regularly check evaporator coil isn't blocked
Cleaning Your Fridge Seals
Normal seals will require cleaning to keep in tip-top condition, remember - dirty, sticky seals can become damaged over time and require replacement more often. To clean standard fridge seals, simply use clean, warm, soapy water, never use abrasive cleaners or cloths, always clean sticky seals as soon as possible to avoid damage.
NEVER USE BLEACH OR OTHER CHEMICALS TO CLEAN SEALS - this will tarnish your seal and is irrepairable!
