Hello and thanks for using JA!

I can't tell from the pictures how the door seals are attached to the fridge. However, most are held on by a number of screws around the perimeter under the flap the holds the magnets. Some newer fridges have a push on door seal that is much easier to install. If you have the machine available to look at the seals, look at the area under the magnetic flaps around the edge of the door seals. If you have rows of screws, then the job is more difficult and I would suggest that you get a tech out to do it for you. The door seals are aound 118 ea, so if both are bad, you may want to think about the value of the job, plus the techs service charges.
