If the gasket is making contact fairly evenly all around, and is not binding at the hinge end, you could just give it more time. I found that over the course of a couple months new gaskets gradually compressed. Eventually there was very little pressure on the latch, practically none, but the seal still worked well.
However, I did have a problem with my DS Machine where the gasket was too thick at the hinge end, and stretched out thin at several other places. It was very difficult to close the door and get the latch end to seal. That required re-gasketing, and I did shut down to do it.
