This GE side-by side model is about 18 years old. I was not ready to shell out $2400 for a new one. I found the freezer door seal torn at the bottom of the door and a lot of humid air (since its been scorching hot since june) was getting inside causing the unit to run longer to keep the freezer at freezing temp.I did not have to run any hot water over the seal to make it pliable--it retained it's shape during shipping. Excellent job by Parts-Select. Remove the old seal by first loosening the screws that hold the thin metal strips over the seal. I had to remove the strip at the top since the seal was kind of stuck.You may not have to do this though. Pull the seal off (you may have to use a litte force, but it will come off). Now install the new seal by flipping the seal's rubber lip under the metal strip making sure the seal sit flat against the door frame. I used a putty knife to wedge the seal in (in some spots). Work your way from top to bottom by tightening the metal strips aagainst the seal. Once it's in, slap some vaseline on it and you are done. That's it, 30 minutes to 1 hour tops.
