It appears some one damaged the gasket in the front

First, I removed the old gasket by ripping it out of front,

Second, I cleansed the rust (no idea how that get there, maybe it's a cheap fridge)

Third, I took some boiling water from the water boiler and dip the new gasket in it to "smooth" out the gasket and make it more "pliable" (really, it didn't seem like much happened, nonetheless, I did it to make sure I don't have to struggle if it comes to that)

Forth, I slap the new gasket in the top corner (inner edge closes to the fridge) and work across then down. But somehow after everything is accomplished, the gasket at the bottom appears bulged so I re-did it from the bottom up. and double checked on the firmness by checking with a flash light w/ the fridge closed (I made sure I did this near night time lol)

Lastly, I did love to thank PartSelect for shipping it out so quick. I ordered on Sunday, they shipped it on Monday and I received it on Tuesday morning at work. Incredible speedy service that even RadioShack overnight service took 3 "overnights" to recieve.

Both the freezer and refridgerator seals were leaking

We took the old seals off, T\they really just peal off, and replaced with the new ones.We were not really sure how they went on, because there really was no instructions with the seals, but we figured it out. After we really figured it out and got started, it was pretty easy. The only instructions that come with it is how to prep the seals before they go on.

Old gasket warped and split,

the new gasket did not appear to exactly match the old one but it did seem like to correct size, and that it should work. I removed the old and worked the new one into the receiver bar with some good old thumb pressure. the door does not 'suck' closed but it seems to be forming around the frame and I do not feel any loss of cold air. All in all a simple process from picking up the phone to completion.....hopefully saved me the cost of a new fridge for a few more years?????

Replacing the refrigerator gasket

Start at the inside top corner and slowly work across the top, pushing with thumbs so that you feel it fitting into the groove. Go inch by inch. No speeding on this one. The gasket was so well packed that there were no folds or kinks, so no heating was necessary.

Gasket had deteriorated at bottom.

I removed the old gasket and snapped the new one into the grooves. No tools were required.

PartSelect provided excellent service. It was a GE manufactured part. GE no longer stocked this part.

PartSelect is a terrific appliance repair parts vendor.

The door gasket was coming apart

I just let the gasket sit on a flat surface for a couple of days. I didn't immerse it in hot water as the directions stated. It went on fairly easy. Just took a bit of patience. The fact that it was packaged nicely without it being jammed into a tight bundle probably was a big factor in the ease of installation.
