I replaced both bottom hinges on my GE refrigerator. The hint that they were worn out was that both the freezer door and fresh food door would not close completely. You had to lift the door on the hinge to get it to close. Many of the GE service repair people recommend complete removal of each door to replace the bottom hinge. I found I could use a couple of wood blocks tall enough to take the weight of the door, jacking it up off of the hinge so could loosen the hex head screws. The freezer door hinge took a few minutes longer because the water supply line for the icemaker which is routed through the tube in the hinge. Overall, an easy repair and the cost of two repair visits was saved.
