I hired a jack-of-all-trades friend of mine to do the job. He had just the right tool to take out all the screws so that went smoothly. Slipping the new gasket into place while I held the inner door shelving section in place was a little tricky and the gasket seemed a little off along the bottom and one side of the door frame. We gave it a couple of days to seat itself. Two days later, there was condensation forming inside so my friend returned and took a look. He spotted a couple of places where the gasket magnet was not sealing properly. Out from his pocket, he pulled what looked like a brass jack knife with japanese writing on it and said it was a japanese carving tool. He opened up one of the parts that had a smooth blunt tip on it and slid it down the channel in the gasket from the outside. Voila! The magnet grabbed. He adjusted a couple of screws along the bottom and , after that, there were no more problems. So be sure to have your japanese carving toll ready when you start this job!
