This is the second time that I replaced the original gaskets. The first set of replacement gaskets were deformed and, even with using a hair dryer as the instructions suggested, was unable to get the wrinkles out sufficiently to get a good seal on either the refrigerator or freezer gasket. Under warranty I was sent a new set of gaskets, which did look in better shape (less deformity and wrinkles) out-of-the-box. I decided however, to soak the gaskets in very hot water in the bathtub and do my best to remove all of the wrinkles after that by laying them flat on the floor and using the hair dryer. They were not perfect after all of that "heat processing" but were much better than the first set I installed. I installed the second set and the results was fantastic. Both the refrigerator and the freezer doors sealed perfectly (you know when they are right when that look good sealed against the surfaces... and it feels almost like you are pulling against a vacuum when you try to open the door). No more ice formation along the seal and the old gaskets, with mold, are gone! My only comment is that the new gaskets don't seem as heavy-duty as the originals which were on the Maytag/Amana but if you take the time and trouble to heat the plastic with hot water and a work out the wrinkles with a hair dryer... they will work just fine.

Gasket:Unfolded gasket from package. Laid it out on counter. Used hair dryer until gasket laid flat and all fold creases were gone.Loosened the top screws and screws along the sides from the top down with the exception of the bottom three screws. Removed old gasket except for the bottom. Fit in the new gasket on top and down the sides. When the old gasket was met, removed the lower three screws and bottom ones. Totally removed old gasket and slipped in new one. Lightly tighened screws, made sure seal was good, Finished tightened all screws. Heated gasked with hair dryer to remove wrinkles.Done.
I removed all screws from the existing gasket, removed aold gasket. Fit new gasket in place and reinstalled all screws. My only concern is that the original gasket had a magnet within the gasket to hold the door closed. The new gasket did not have a magnet. Hopefully, the door will close tightly to assure no cold leakage. I'm not sure how the seal remains tight.
This is my first time replacing door gaskets so the process was new. First I had to inspect the in-place gaskets to determine how to remove them. On the freezer I took all the screws out and removed the "clamp rails". This allowed me to clean up the edges of the door and the clamps. Once I realized I didn't need to remove everything I put the clamps back on loosely and set the gasket. I had to tweek it a bit and use the hair dryer a lot but all is well. The fridge door went very smoothly based on what I learned previously. The smartest thing I did was use the hair dryer (per instructions) to get the wrinkles out prior to the install. This made the second gasket a breeze. Only took about 30 minutes. Lastly, where the gasket didn't seat right (only one edge about 6" long) i used some clear tape to "pull" it into place and after a week it was as good as new. Thanks
The door seals arrived in good condition, I followed the instruction and unpacked the door seals and straighten them out on the floor. I left them over night to climates. First I empty all the door compartments of food. I then used socket driver and loosened all the hex nut screws around the door. Do not remove the screws. Removed the door seal by pulling it out of the door seal clamp. Once removed clean the door seal clamp and door. Now start at the top and put the door seal into the top door seal clamp. Then work on both sides of the door pushing the seal into the clamp. Finally stretch the seal and insert the bottom section into the door seal clamp. Check and make sure the seal is properly installed around the door seal clamp and the fit is even. Start at the bottom and tighten the bottom screws. Then start tightening the sides and finally the top screws. Make sure there are no wrinkles. If there is undo the screws and reposition the door seal. This is an easy install but takes about 2 hours to do.
remove old gasket and replace with new gasket.replace cam kit, easy to remove a little diffcult to replace. tight on the corners. trick to get gasket into lip.
The repair went very easy. It would have been easier except for the arthritis in my hands. The arthritis made it time consuming because I had to wait between times for my hands to stop hurting. Without the arthritis, I would have completed the job in less time. First I loosened all the screws that held the gasket in place, removed the old gasket and followed the instructions in placing the new gasket and then I tightened all of the screws.
Laid the gasket flat for several days with heat applicaton. The replacement was pretty easy. Since the door cams had to be replaced I only had to take the door off once. Easy as one two three. Thanks
Remoted all in door drawers. Pulled back gasket and removed screws from door. Pulled door off hinge. Removed gasket. Had to use clamps to secure gasket when stretching onto door frame. Replaced frame on to door and then put on hinge. Lastly reinstalled in door drawer.s
