Step 1: First you need to find the right gasket replacement. Check the official website of your refrigerator manufacturer. They usually offer spare parts. If you can't find the part you are looking for, you can go to a hardware store or hardware store to find what you need. 

Make sure it fits. You need to know what type of refrigerator you are using. There are various seal sizes for fridges with french doors, deep fridges, fridges with freezers, and so on. 

Step 2: The new seal initially feels hard and will not bend. To make it more elastic, you can soak it in hot water. This makes the material pliable. Soak in hot water for 15 minutes until the ingredients are easier to use.

Step 3: Remove all the contents of your refrigerator. Set aside perishable foods or put them in the refrigerator filled with ice. Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and pull it carefully from the kitchen wall.

Step 4: Take a screwdriver that will allow you to remove the screws from the old gasket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screw. Make sure you don't lose the screws.

Step 5: Ask your assistant to hold the door as you loosen the screw that holds the door from the outside corner to the top of the machine. When you loosen the screw, have your assistant partially close the door to fold the old gasket. This makes it easier to loosen the seal. After loosening, carefully remove the old seal.
