Where to find Norcold Marine refrigerator replacement parts
A popular Norcold Marine refrigerator.
Where to find replacement Norcold Marine refrigerator parts for older fridges. The gasket on our Norcold Refrigerator Model 982 needs to be replaced and Norcold told me the replacement gasket for this model is no longer available.
Any suggestion on where a generic gasket material can be bought and cut to size and fitted into our 1997 Norcold refrigerator?
Thanks for your help. Hermine

Well Hermine, sorry to hear about your troubles with the refrigerator.
I can relate to your difficulty of finding replacement parts since as the fridges get older, parts become harder to find, but there are still parts available out there, either used or in someone's inventory.
As you're aware, it is much easier to repair a marine refrigerator, than to replace a complete fridge. Especially considering the costs and effort involved in installing a new replacement appliance.
I remember years ago that I was able to find some replacement parts for a marine fridge by doing some searching and telephoning the local service centers. I was able to find the parts I needed.

As to finding some generic gasket material, I imagine you will find some local names and numbers from the link above, and they'll be able to supply you with a suitable replacement product. I'm sure that a solution for you is just around the corner :)Lastly
