I checked the exploded view of the door assembly and the box assembly and determined the parts needed to properly solve the problem. I guessed correctly that the lower cam on the hinge assembly should be replaced at the same time since they had to work together. It ended up I had just the right parts and all of the nut head fasteners were the same size so only one wrench was needed. The door did have to be removed by detaching the top hinge as well.
