I have model number 363.78567896 and the freezer seal AP2067912. You answered my question about the seal. Is there a manual or pdf I can use to help me take the door off and the screws? Any other suggestion? Thanks.
ANSWER Hi D. Before starting the change effort, fill the tub with warm/hot water and unfold the gasket as you place it in the tub. Or if it is a sunny day place it outside on a blanket to get it warmed up. Then remove the upper door hinge cover. Use a felt marker to mark the hinge alignment against the cabinet so it will be placed back correctly. Remove the food and inner door bins. Then remove the hinge. If there is a shim in between the hinge and the cabinet keep it with the hinge and screws. Unfold the gasket inside area to see if you will need a 1/4# nut driver or a Phillips screwdriver to remove all inner gasket screws. Then place the new gasket together with the inner door panel. Start the lt. and rt. center screws partially in to get started. Then make sure the gasket is uniform as you replace it all around. If there is any wavy side gaps you can use a hair dryer and a putty knife to relax the magnet going up and down as you heat the area. Be careful not to overheat the gasket. remember that when the door is evenly closed what is more important is the door seal -to - the cabinet area. Hand tighten all screws. Also you can use some white lithium grease on the hinge pins to keep them working well. Thank You.
