This freezer was given to me by a neigbor. It had set closed/unplugged for over a year. The gasket was so moldy I couldn't clean it. Unplug the freezer! I removed the old gasket pins using needle nose pliers. There were about 50 plastic pens holding the gasket and inside cover of the freezer lid (chest freezer) The plastic pens were difficult to remove. The insulation was wet so I braced the lid open and let the insulation dry for a couple of days. When the insulation was dry I attached a plastic pen at each corner of the gasket and then placed pens at even intervals around the rest of the gasket.. None of the holes lined up past the 3rd hole so I used a punch to make the necessary holes. The instructions say to put a bead of silicone gel around the outer edge of the gasket. I haven't done that yet but plan to do that last step.
