Spent more time studying the issue. Back at post 22 I posted some pics of the new gasket I put in. At the time I questioned the fact that it was not "exact" design of the oem. I also posted a pic of the sort of "warped" corner design & fit of the replacement.

Since the ice build up is RIGHT on the other side of this "malformed" new gasket, I am starting to think it's letting air in & immediately freezing there on the roof in front of the ice maker.

Not wanting to spend another $200 for a like poorly made door gasket, is there a way to seal up a leaky gasket like you would seal up a window draft with some kind of foam cell tape that would retain it's compression life?

or

Is there a way to stuff some foamy cell material under the gasket to plump it out a bit?
