Fridge doorseal

Hi, folks

Fridge 3 way Electrolux RM6401L
This is probably the original for the MH and so is now some 17 years old.
Works beautifully, but starting to ice-up fairly regularly because the bottom of
the door seal is totally decayed.
There never was a spare for this seal, 'cos it's integral to the door.
OK, buy another door ? No chance. Electrolux have declared this model obsolete.
Anyway, the cost would be enough to give me heart failure.
Let's get to the point.......has anyone come up with an alternative door seal, or material for
this fridge ?
Has anyone managed to dig out all of the seal and replace with similar ?
Advice welcome
Cheers
Bill

All these jobs are getting done 'cos we can't move !

Would the seal they use on external lockers work Bill? I bought some to augment the seals on a garage door. Stick-on.

You can get glue suitable for fridge use too.

I guess it must be possible u to use silicone sealant and put masking tape on the fridge side. If you see what I mean?

A picture of you’re current seal in situ may help us with other suggestions.

Thanks, Terry.
Looks like this would be suitable for a steel fridge.
I need something to stick rubber/neoprene to plastic.
Has anyone used E6000 craft adhesive successfully ?
Fridge door is disgusting. I'm not posting piccies until the seal and crud is removed !

Have got sidelined into repairing flyscreen/shutter at back of Hymer.

In the meantime, anything bought on line seems to be in a logjam somewhere.
Might think about putting car doorseal on fridge instead of door.
It seems that the carpet on the floor of Hymer has gone a long way towards damaging the bottom of the fridge door seal.
