The refrigerator cabinet door was making a clicking sound before the cam insert finally broke; this caused the door to not stay closed on it's own.

Took all food out of the refrigerator door. Pulled the door off by unscrewing the 3/8 hex-head screws on top and bottom hinges. The door is relatively light and removes very easy. Unscrewed and removed the broken plastic cam pieces and replaced with the new ones. Replaced the steel hinge, even though it was still in good shape. The hinge kit comes with left and right hinges as well as a spare cam insert with each hinge, so I still have all the left side parts and spare cam insert for the right side for a future fix if needed. The repair itself was extremely easy and took about 10 minutes; the total time that included emptying the food, cleaning the bottom grill plate and replacing the food was about 20 minutes of my evening.
