My freezer is on the bottom so I had to remove both doors....First by removing the bolts from the top of the Refrigerator door...its has a cover on it at the top of the door...Remember to mark the bolt holes, because its a universal type of bracket and it has many holes that are not being used...Once you remove that just pull the door up. Next there is another bracket between the both doors...You need a phillips screwdriver to remove three screws...Once you remove that bracket,you can remove the freeze door...I found it easier to lay the freezer door on the kitchen table with the gasket up...You will need a 1/4 socket with ratchet.Or you can use a nut start removing the cap screws.. I put all the screws in a dixie cup so I don`t lose them....Once the remove all the cap screws....You just pull off the gasket replace the old gasket and put the new gasket on...I started all the cap screws alittle....then I started to tighting up the cap screws..from the center of the door and worked my way out....checking the gasket to make sure it was still in the right place....once all the cap screws were tight....You just slide the door on the bottom pin on the refrigerator door....put the three screws on the middle bracket , that holds the top of the freezer door and its the bottom pin for the refrigerator door....Put the refrigerator back on the bottom pin...And put the top bracket back on...Open and close the doors once its all tight....This might sound hard But, it really not...The hardest part is making sure the gasket is on right and stays in place....Good Luck!!
