First we read all the comments by other handymen. This was really helpful. Then we took the door off and removed the old gasket with a nut driver. We tried to slip the new gasket under the edge with a thin spatula and didn't have much luck. Then we remembered someone saying that is was a good time to take the door apart and check to see if there was ice build up in the door. It was so bad we took out the frozen insulation and replaced it with new....$4.00 at the hardware store. While the door was apart we put the gasket on and put it in place and tightened it to the door. This worked very well for us. This saved us from having to buy a new refrigerator/ freezer. Thanks.
