Removing a freezer gasket from a fridge typically requires basic tools, such as a putty knife, combination square and nut driver. Other tools that can help during the removal and replacement process include a hair dryer to remove any kinks that are found in the replacement gasket.
Before removing a freezer gasket, it is important to ensure that any food within the freezer is removed or the freezer area is sealed with plastic to keep the cold in. The freezer must be turned off during the removal process. The lip of a freezer gasket should be pulled back before a nut driver can be used to free it from its casing.
