Ice maker not working properly and door seal worn

Two screws held the icemaker on. You do not even have to take them all the way out to remove the IM. Replacement of the water valve was just as easy except they (parts manufacturer) updated the flange nut with a compression fitting and it took me a minute looking at it before I realize what was going on. The door seal could not be easier, no tools just a few minutes of time

Gaskets didn't seal well, were moldy

Would have been an easy job but the bottom channel of the refrigerator door that the gasket snaps into was rusty and had to be cleaned out with a screw driver. Took some working with it to figure out why it wasn't snapping in hence the long time to fix it.

The freezer door gasket went much better. It had been folded for shipping and had to be heated per the instruction to ensure a seal. That was easier than I expected it to be.

The seal seems fine now. No moisture. I wish I had done this sooner!

Gasket needed to be replaced

first started with the bottom corner then went across the bottom and proceeded to go around the refrigerator. this made it hard to get the last corner in the track. I redid it by getting all four corners set in the track then worked on pushing the sides of the gasket in. This worked much better.

Old gasket damaged/worn

I had to figure out how to remove the old gasket and install the new one on my own since there were NO INSTRUCTIONS. The old gasket had to be cut off; the new one had to be warmed in hot water to make it flexible enough to flatten out. Once that was done, I had to trim excess plastic from the inside corners before the gasket would press into place at the corners.

Replace torn gasket

The part arrived It said to warm it to take out wrinkles but not even a picture of how to take off the old or put on the new. Everything on the internet in general about gaskets explained about unscrewing the old gasket but I couldn't find any screws. The user feedback mentioned no tools and that was our only clue and the only reason we finally succeeded. We looked at it repeatedly over 5 days. Pulled and pushed and could not figure out how it was attached or how to unattach without breaking things. I finally got out a screw driver and tried to pry it off. An hour later I got a corner piece started to come off. We pulled all the way around and got it off easily once started. We again struggled to put the new one on. Couldn't really tell what area of the gasket fit back into the crease. It kept falling off. Finally we pushed the correct edge of the gasket into the crease. VERY difficult. Fat edge fits into skinny crease. Took a lot more strength than expected so it didn't seem right but it was. Took a while and a lot of strength to work the corners and sides in. Eventually got the whole thing on. A picture and 4 sentences would have been a big help. Wouldn't try it again. To anyone else...No screws. Use a lot of strength. I hope someone publishes a picture for you.
