What is the function of the refrigerator door seal?
The seal protects the cold air in the refrigerator from mixing with atmospheric air by keeping the refrigerator door tightly closed. There are no gaps in this seal and this helps the refrigerator to do its job smoothly.
Opening and closing the refrigerator door continuously is also not a big problem, as long as the tight seal keeps cold air inside after the door is closed. Even the freezer does the same job, even if the door doesn't open often. This seal wears out when the refrigerator is old or has been in use for a long time. If they are loose or cracked, they must be replaced.
