Removed screws from bottom door hinge,,removed door,(don't lose washer from top door hinge when the door is removed),the new gasket wasn't too out of shape,i put fridge door on table top , loosened all the screws, pulled off the old gasket,,cleaned the surfaces, and installed the new gasket,,"Take yout time to make sure the gasket is completely and correctly under the door liner.If the new gasket is somewhat deformed,a hair dryer will work great to reshape,,"Be Careful-Do Not Overheat".I reinstalled the door , and it's working fine. NOTE; Since i removed the bottom hinge, i needed a second person to help keep the door from falling when i removed the lower hinge, and needed the second hand to do the reinstall. Have a tube of RTV Silicone Sealant on hand and follow supplied instructions.
