When gaskets are torn, there really isn't a way to fix them other than taping over the hole with something that will last awhile. The better option is to purchase cut to fit universal gaskets to replace your old freezer gasket that is no longer made. They cost about $30 and you can cut them to fit your particular unit. Below is a link to such a kit.
