Removed all food and defrosted the evaporator. This took most of the time at about 2:30 hr. Replacing the gaskets only took about 30 min. this involved removing the small screws under the old gasket with a 1/4" nut driver in a drill/driver. Then removing the inner panal and pulling off the old gasket then cleaning every thing with warn soapy water and putting the new gasket on the inner panal and starting with the small holes, not the elongated ones, put the inner panal back on but don't tighten the screws down until you have them all in but loose. Then check that the door is strait with the unit, Set the clutch at 3-4 so you don't strip the screws, and start tightening them, checking that the door is still flush with the unit when closed as you go. Then do the same to the other door. That's it. No more frost!
