Great video on-line - remove door by unscrewing bracket (3 screws) at top of door; the door magnet will hold it to the face of the frig until you are ready to lift it off... Lift door off and position horizontally across a padded table or sawhorses. The door is actually very light in weight. The cams at the bottom were easy to put on - use care not to overtighten the retaining screw. The top thimble takes a lot of time to "dig out" of the top of the door - hard not to mar and bend the door in this area. This took almost one-half hour to get it out!! Putting in the new one, use care to not cave in the door corner, not a lot of structural strength in the area. Once all the door items are in place, put the door back in place on the frig and replace the top bracket to hold it in place; watch to line up the gap between the frig and freezer door so it hangs straight. Check the two cams at the door bottom - they won't fit perfectly when the door is in the closed position and that is OK... IMPORTANT - the door should now close, but it won't automatically shut on its own until you load the door back up with your food items. Once the items are in place on the door you will see that it now closes completely with very little to no effort... just like it should. Hope this is helpful!!!

Followed recommendations from others but went with most likely by percentage = Defrost Timer Kit. Did not solve issue. Then went with Bi-Metal Thermostat and that did not fix the problem. Tested the thermostat as recommended on line and old part was bad, new part OK. Then I saw on line that I should have listened for Fan operation. I checked and found the fan Motor to be defective. Replaced the motor and Refrigerator worked fine. Both the Motor and Bi-Metal Thermostat were required. Should have checked fan operation first.

First, unplug the refrigerator. With nut-driver and/or screw driver remove the lower back cardboard panel to access Start device. Use needle nose pliers to remove bracket holding Start Device along with capacitor. Disconnect the wiring connector from Start Device. Carefully, pry Start Device from compressor. Remove capacitor from Start Device. Replace the capacitor to the Start Device. Connect the Start Device with the capacitor to the compressor being mindful of the three male pins. Plug the electrical connector back into the Start Device. Finally, reconnect the bracket. . Reinstall the lower back cardboard panel. Plug in the appliance. Very simple and easy to install. Note: If the compressor and fan do not come on, reset the defrost switch which is located inside the refrigerator side underneath the right side of the refrigerator temperature selector with the flat head screw driver.

Openned both doors and removed lower grille. Closed doors and placed a piece of wood underneath door. The piece of wood slightly taller so that it supports and lifts the door while I worked. Working at the bottom of the door removed both upper and lower plastic cams and replaced with new ones. Be sure to tighten the single screw that holds down the plastic cam; if you leave them loose they will split/crack because they will move as you operate the door.

fridge turned itself off, melting often

I vacuumed the back and underneath, hoping it will solve the problem, but after about 2 weeks of hoping I succumbed.... finding the proper wrench was the most time consuming. After removing the screws, the face plate removal was the most challenging. You have to pry the top part carefully away (we used a knife), after it just drops down. Used a flat screw driver to loosen the wire harness, after that the rest was less than child's play. We are still in the testing mode, but so far so good. Freezer freezes, ice maker drops the ice cubes (not melting), fridge is humming. Wish us good luck.

Easy fix. Used this a teaching opportunity for my 18 yr old son and had him do all the work. The cams have like little inclines that as the meet close the door with like a over center effect. Empty the door. Just undo the top plate 5/16 screws and lift door off. On bottom of door change the 1 piece lower door closing cam and on the bottom post plate change the door cam. add a little grease and reverse the process to install. later in life my son will know how to make this repair.....easy to do folks.

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out.
