Laying on the floor I blocked up the door. Removed old hinge and cam. First I replaced the cam then I inserted the hinge into the cam. Positioned the door to enable me to refasten the hinge to the Refrigerator. Another way is to empty the stuff from the refrigerator door.Then remove the top hinge take off the door and place it on the counter on a blanket so as not to scratch the door. Replace the cam. Place the door back on the wooden blocks.Insert the Hinge into the cam while the door is standing on the wooden blocks. It would be a great help if you had a second person to hold the door so you don't gets bumps on your head. You first need to attach the top honge withe the 2 screws loosly so the door will move. Then screw the bottom hinge to the refrigerator. If you find that the inside of the door is rubbing lossen the top hing and adjust the door until it closed properly. Also by putting the stuff back on the door may cure the rubbing. Good Luck
