It is not uncommon for the gaskets on refrigerator doors to break. Every time you open and close your refrigerator door you are putting strain on the gasket and eventually one may just blow out. There are a number of ways to identify this as a problem. One method is to slip a strip of paper into your refrigerator door and to try to pull it out.
