1) Empty the refrigerator door (Good time to clean it too!)2)Take the cover plate off the top hinge. 3)Remove the two screws on the top hinge (Keep the door closed) 4) Oppen the door and lift up. It will lift out of the lower hinge. 5) Remove the screw from the door close plate and replace. 6)The door closure bearing is in a hole on the lower part of the door and is likely cracked in two. Remove the upper part from the door. You may have to remove the plate. 7) Replace the plate if needed and insert the new door bearing in the hole. It only fits one way due to the shape. 8) Complete steps 6 through 1 in reverse order. The whole thing takes 15 minutes. One person can do it. The door is very light.
