Hello thank you for writing . Here it goes: Prepare the new gasket while you’re removing the old one. It’s a good idea to put the new gasket in warm water for a few moments before installing it. Before you remove the old one, shut off the power to the refrigerator.[3] This process will make it easier for you to install the new gasket. You also might find it easier to level the refrigerator if it seems off balance. Some people even remove the refrigerator door to install the gasket, but this is not mandatory.[4] You won’t need a lot of equipment, but you will need what is called a hex head screwdriver. You can find these at most hardware stores. If you are confused what it is, just ask a salesperson and tell him or her the purpose. You should turn the screwdriver counter-clockwise. 1 Remove the gasket from the refrigerator door. Grab the bottom of it on the inside, and pull the gasket back. You want to be able to see the metal gasket retainer. 2 Loosen, but do not remove, the screws that hold the metal retainer around the entire door. You should use the hex head nut screwdriver to do this. Lift the edges of the seal to find the screws underneath that are holding in the plastic liner and door seal. Often, the screws hold in a plastic liner, which in turn clamps the door seal to the door. 3 Pull the gasket out of the door to remove it once you have loosened the retainer screws. Once all of the screws are loose, the door seal should easily slide out from behind the plastic liner. Don't be too forceful when doing this step, since some plastic liners can be quite brittle and crumble if you are too rough. 4 Take the new gasket, and install it. Position one of its corners on the top of the refrigerator door. Push the lip of the new gasket over the metal retainer, and slide it behind the metal retainer and around the entire perimeter of the refrigerator door. The best method is to start in the top corners, and work your way around the door. 5 Use the hex head driver to screw the metal retainer in. You don’t want to tighten the gasket retainer screws all the way. You want them to be snug. 6 Apply powder. Use a bit of baby powder or talcum powder to prevent sticking. 7 Rub some powder around the hinge side corners of the door seal and where the seal slides. This will help to prevent the door seal from twisting as it meets the metal of the fridge. 8 If this still doesn't prevent twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door, and leave it shut for an hour. 9 Close the refrigerator door, and open it several times to inspect the gasket. You are looking for any warped areas of the gasket. Repeat this process several times. 10 Rub petroleum jelly along the hinged side of the door if you see some gaps. Once the gasket looks like it is properly fitted, tighten the screws more. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it. Good luck with your repair.
