The seal does pull out except for 2 tricky clips that hold it on between the doors. They must make a special tool for those clips. I think those doors are over engineered and poorly designed. They don't seal very well. No magnets on the seals. 2 flimsy I guess you could call latches and a very light suction. The customer said if one door is left open a crack for a long time the food in the bottom freezer thaws out. It sure was a pretty refrigerator though. HaHa. Stainless steel sells.
