The refrigerator door was not staying closed. Arriving home we found it open and not running. The compressor was off on thermal overload. In checking that and while cleaning the condenser I noticed the refrigerator door was 1/4" lower than the freezer. I saw how the door cams worked to keep the doors closed. The installation was easy. I blocked up the door. Removed the old cams using a small socket and installed the new. Door cams tool less than fifteen minutes.
