Removed food from door. Shut off fridge. Removed dust cap at top hinge. Marked location of top hinge with masking tape so lining up when reassembling would be easier. Removed screws holding top hinge to fridge. Removed door, placed on blanket&towel. Removed old door cam. Put on new door cam. Removed old hinge cam. Put on new hinge cam. Put door back on. Replaced top hinge, lining up with tape. Replaced dust cap. Note that door did not really self close very well until it was filled with food. By far the hardest part of the whole operation was that my wife wanted to clean the fridge in the process!

This is a very easy fix. Begin by emptying the contents of the door. Then, just remove hinge cap and remove the three hinge screws. The door can then be lifted off the hinge pin and placed on its side. Once this is done, replace the two can pieces (one on the door and one on the frame). Then just lift the door back in place and secure the hinge. This job can be done by one person (maybe two if you need help place the door on a work surface) and will take just 15 minutes.

Followed the Partselect instructions - removed door, removed old cam and replaced with new cam. One lesson learned. There are two cams - one that sits on hinge below door and one that is up inside bottom of door. If you are replacing one, replace them both.

I followed the really great repair video on this site. I would not have been able to do it without the video. Thanks very much for the video. Once I had the front panel off, it was relatively easy. Definitely would buy here again and attempt repairs myself. Very good experience! Very happy.

Ice dispenser and water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Joseph from Naples, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Was surprisingly easy. Hardest part was taking the cover off the front to get access to the control bracket and switches. Can be done by prying two notches on underside of cover until they pop. Then slide up and off. Once off I could immediately tell the plastic clips on control bracket were broken. So replacing fixed that issue. My other issue was the ice dispenser door would not stay closed and sealed. I noticed that the plastic hook that holds metal dispenser pin in place was broken. Had trouble finding that part online so I superglued it in place and that has held it just fine. Now both my ice dispenser and water dispenser are working after buying a $10 part. This site is awesome. I am sure I would have paid $200 for this from a repairman.

Remove drip pan from indoor ice dispensing system remove to bottom screws holding dispenser faceplate .lift faceplate out of the way exposing the bracket and ice and water dispenser micro switches be careful in removing microswitch, the one I removed came apart and had a little difficulty putting it back together ,used super glue and fix that problem. No instructions came with bracket so take your time. This is a relatively simple job any one should be able to do it.
