The refrigerator and freezer doors no longer close by them selves. There are a mating set of cam type guides on the bottom hinge of each door. They are designed to give the door some momentum toward the closed position when the door is part way open. The repair was very simple. Doors are heavy, but manageable. The part shipped over the holiday weekend, but arrived very quickly considering.
