This is a bottom drawer freezer/refrigerator. Removed the drawer face from the drawer assembly. Removed screws that secure the inside of the drawer and removed the old gasket. Discovered that some fibreglass insulation inside the door was wet and icy from condensation that had gathered over time. Removed the insulation and dried it. This took some time as the ice was slow to melt. Once dry, I replaced the insulation, installed the new gasket and reassembled the door and reinstalled it on the door assembly. Used a hair dryer to warm the new gasket so that it would take proper shape as it had deformed slightly in its packaging . Was tipped off to this approach in the instructions that came with the new gasket. Laa in all the repais was successful.
