loosened the little bolts around the door that held the old gaskets in place. Removed the old gaskets, installed the new ones and tighten the bolts. Very important to let the gaskets settle after you take them out of the box because they are all crumpled up and the door doesn't seal right. Even after I let them settle and used a hair dyer to straighten them out, they were still a little crumpled when I put them on and the door didn't seal right. I just used the hair drier some more on the gaskets while they were on the door and they popped right back into shape and the doors sealed perfectly. Fridge and freezer work much better now. No more condensation forming around the fridge and the food stays nice and dry now.

For about $100 and 1.5 hours of work, I have a great working fridge and freezer and saved about $500 for a new unit!!!
