I opted not to remove the entire door which did not cause any problems, and did not add to the complexity of the job by adding another step. I simply removed the numerous bolts from the sides an bottom of the existing gasket and loosened, but left in place, the top row of bolts. I slipped the old gasket out and slipped the new gasket in. Then tightened one bolt per side to secure it in place and verify it was even around the perimeter, then tightened all remaining bolts and then wait for the applause.

I first removed the screws from the upper 2/3 of door gasket and remove that portion of gasket. Put new gasket in place and re-installed the screws on the top section. Removed the rest of the screws, completed placement of new gasket and re-installed all screws. It is not necessary to remove the door. Piece of cake repair.
I hired a jack-of-all-trades friend of mine to do the job. He had just the right tool to take out all the screws so that went smoothly. Slipping the new gasket into place while I held the inner door shelving section in place was a little tricky and the gasket seemed a little off along the bottom and one side of the door frame. We gave it a couple of days to seat itself. Two days later, there was condensation forming inside so my friend returned and took a look. He spotted a couple of places where the gasket magnet was not sealing properly. Out from his pocket, he pulled what looked like a brass jack knife with japanese writing on it and said it was a japanese carving tool. He opened up one of the parts that had a smooth blunt tip on it and slid it down the channel in the gasket from the outside. Voila! The magnet grabbed. He adjusted a couple of screws along the bottom and , after that, there were no more problems. So be sure to have your japanese carving toll ready when you start this job!
It was a complete mess and a failure. There were no in structions with the gaskets except warming them in water to streatch them. Nothing with a photo of what the gasket looks like as it is being installed or after installation. I am still not convinced they are the correct gaskets for the model. It was a total waste of time and $130.00 to try to replace the gaskets. In the end, I determined that it would be cheaper in the long run to buy a used refrigerator than to mess with the gaskets.
I removed all the screws except the top screws. These screws I loosed to make sure the door shelves remained in place. I did not want to remove the refrigerator door. I had read this method on PartSelect. It worked fine. I would recommend a power drill because of the number of screws supporting the door shelves; a power drill really help. Please note there are only 3 sides of the "new" door gasket that are magnetized. It would have been nice to identify which are the magnetized sides before I did the installation; I guess I should have read the directions before hand.It was an easy job.
New seal arrived basically folded in half for shipping. Was advised to use hair dryer and/or hot water to restore original shape. Neither worked. I installed it anyway and am waiting (3 days so far) for it to seal (so far, no luck). I'll give it another day or 2, re-install the old one and write off the $75
I first loosened all screws that are hidden by seal leading edge. I then removed seal. I made sure that I knew which side of seal was to be in contact with refrigerator door frame to provide the seal. I positioned the seal on the door inner panel starting at the top. After I had finished positioning the top I proceeded to position both sides and then the bottom. I tightened the screws only enough to hold the seal in position. After I had the seal in the proper position I tightened the screws that hold the seal in position. I used a hair dryer to heat seal and smooth out the the sealing edge.
First, I removed everything from the door shelves. Next, I loosened the screws around the door, under the seals, pulled the seals out and slid the new ones into place. It couldn't have been easier. There is no need to remove the door liner. It's like having a new refrigerator.I was surprised, when my parts arrived 3 days after I ordered them. The cost was less than half, compared to our local parts house.
did not remove the doors. did freezer first ,removed inner door planel install gasget on panel and reinstalled. the aloney problem i had was trying to resape the door gasget on the big door. which is still a little out of shape hopeing it will fall in line over time.
I unscrewed about 20 screws from the door, took out the inside, cleaned it first, then put the door gasket on, Screwed the door back in place.
Removed the door-the hardest part, placed door on saw horses and removed what seemed to be several hundrded screws. In reality there were about 20 screws!! Replaced the gasket and door and kept it tightly closed with duct tape overnight..It's workin' great. Thanks to a guy named Appguy everything came out fine.
Loosened all the screws and pulled the old gasket off. It was fairly easy to get the new one in place. After I had it on it did not seal well so I had to use a hair dryer to get the seal tight.
Emptied door shelves; removed umpteen screws (electric driver); replaced gasket and same umpteen screws; reloaded shelves. Didn't even turn off refrigerator. And, had great help from you (Sue) when I originally ordered the wrong gasket. Job was a piece of cake and your service outstanding.
