What type of glue should I use to re-attach the door gasket on my refrigerator that is only 17 months old?

My 17 month old refrigerator's door gasket is nearly 1/2 detached. I was told by a local hardware store to use the stuff in the jar with the dabber applicator that is intended for use on PVC pipe, but it didn't work. I'm afraid to try just anything for two reasons, one it needs to stay adhered at low temps and it has to be safe to use on a refrigerator.

Without a model number, I am unable to see the type of refrigerator that you have. This would also show me the type of refrigerator door gasket that is installed on your refrigerator. Many refrigerator door gaskets just push into a slot in the inner door liner. Some are pushed in between the inner door panel and the metal outer door. Foam that is in between these panels will sometimes help hold a gasket in place. Unless the original door gasket was glued in place, I do not recommend gluing it when it is as loose as you describe. I normally recommend replacing the door gasket.

Resubmit your question with the full model number of your refrigerator and we will be glad to help you further with this problem.
