This is a side by side freezer/refrigerator, nearly 30 years old. The repair was very quick and easy. 1. Remove two screws from top bracket. There is no cover for the top hinge on this older model. (2) Lift off door and set on kitchen table. (3) Remove two screws holding bottom door hinge. (4) remove two screws hold the cam and shims on the bottom of the door. (5) replace the broken cam on the door, and the bottom hinge assembly. (6) Replace the door on the bottom hinge. (7) Re-attach the top hinge screws, making sure the door is parallel to the freezer door. It took about 10 minutes to do all of the above. Best yet, I ordered the kit about 10am on a Monday, and the parts arrived, normal delivery, before noon the next day.PS- I used petroleum jelly to grease the hinge before replacing the door. The only tool I needed was a nutdriver.
