Lower Door Closing Cams Worn down

  • Customer: Raul from Miami FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

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.

The instructions on line suggested I buy a lower door closing cam and a thimble top which I did. When I went to install I noticed that the door hinge with cam was also warn down. I had to again place an order and again remove the door to install. I would suggest those having this problem that they look at the hinge with cam also before ordering.

Removed the refrigerator door (after taking everything out of the shelves). Took the old Lower Door Closing Cam off (it was totally worn down), installed the new one, rehung the door. Rehanging the door took a couple of tries to get it properly aligned. Very easy fix, We thought we had to replace the refrigerator since it is 14 years old, but this fixed the problem completely!
