I think the attachment of the foam may just be a personal preference. I've done it both ways and haven't had any better or worse luck. Experiment!

I'm toying with adding a second gasket inboard of the original, which is stiff, but mostly serviceable. Any thoughts about a bulb type seal as opposed to a closed foam of constant cross section?

What finally happened on this thread. The door gasket seems ok on my 1971 Hadco Fridge, but the ice cube box gasket on it is dry and cracked. Sounds similar to yours.

You used to be able to buy misc gaskets by the foot, but that doesnt happen anymore. Finally I talked to a repair guy and asked if an adhesive foam weatherstripping would work. He told me yes, and added that he restored a 1920's fridge about 15 years ago, couldnt find a gasket, used a black foam (thanks donna) and fifteen years later its still working great.

I ended up buying a refrigerator to replace the ice box. I do think the baby oil (mineral oil) helped a little, but not night and day better.
