SYLVESTER From NORTH SWANZEY, NH

Sep 08, 2012

Parts came in excellent condition w/o any folds or creases. I started with the freezer & emptied the door shelves. I used magnets and a large plastic trash bag to cover the opening so I did not have to empty the freezer. Using the drill/driver I quickly loosened all the screws on the gasket & removed the old one. I worked from the top down installing the new one, tightened a couple screws to keep the gasket from coming out, & worked my way to the bottom. Same for the fresh food door, but I started on the bottom. The pick came in handy, kinda like a thin awl with bends on the end, to loosen the old gasket if tight, and to manuever the new one into position, especially on the corners which can be tight.
