Door seal repair question for Dometic NDR 1292

Is there a fix (temporary or permanent) for the refrigerator door seals. My freezer is icing up within 2 weeks. Are there doors available since (I've been told the seals can't be replaced)? I'm hoping not to order a replacement, however if it can't be repaired I would be interested in replacing it with a residential type.

Anyone have input on repairing an Dometic NDR 1292 frig. Need replacement doors since you can't get replacement door seals, or replacement Refrig. Anyone who has info, would like to hear from you,

I've had luck removing the door seals (assuming they are not ripped, and frame is still straight), cleaning thoroughly, and re-installing with a piece of nylon or other inert cord stuffed into the "track" the door seal profile makes, so as to add some push to the profile.
