I first replaced the door cam and then found out that the bottom hinge was also defective and the shim was broken. Took the door off and replaced the hinge and shim. Replaced the door, leveled it and tightened it down. Job complete. Video provided by Part Select was very helpful.

Turn off refrigerator.
Empty freezer remove shelves and back plate.
With hair dryer melt ice, I made a tray out of old plastic to drain water to outside into pan outside of freezer, so I would not over fill the drain pan.
Removed to old parts and replaced. Check the wire length to see what one goes on top. I forgot to do this and had to remove and switch them.
Clip on the thermostat and plug in wire. Close back, insert racks and and back in business.
Not a hard repair!

I ordered the part, within two days we had received it. My husband put the part in and I really don't know what he used doing so. All I know is that the light works now and we don't have to use the flashlight. Thanks a lot.

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

I watched the video online, and said, "hey, I can do that." And yep, I did. I'm pretty comfortable with handyman work - but had never tackled a frig door before. The door closing cam that had completely come apart turned out to be straight forward to fix with the replacement part.

All thumbs, not handy and lacked confidence to even try to fix even simple problems. First, panicked! Next went to U-Tube and imputed Model number of Refrigerator and searched "freezer cold, refrigerator warm." Next, found U-Tube video which showed me how to diagnose, remedy and fix the problem. Determined the problem,and was directed by U-Tube to PartSelect. Searched part name and cost. Compared cost of parts with other part suppliers. Waited about a week to ensure my diagnosis was accurate, then ordered the part. Part came in about 3 days, went back to video instructions from U-Tube, opened area, took pictures and then replaced part. Since then the Refrigerator has worked perfect, let's hope it continues to work well, after this post. New found confidence and belief in my "Handy-Man" ability.

Refrigerator was getting hot, coils freezing up

  • Customer: Silbert from Bowling Green Ky. KY
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Turned the appliance off, take the back panel off, defrosted the coils. Put a cork in the drain hole and a towel to soak up the water. Four screws take the heaters off, pull the thermostat from the top coil. Unplug the wire at the top. Install the new heaters, clip the thermostat on the top coil, route the wires around the side, plug in the heaters. Put the panel back on with four screws, turn the appliance back on. You may need to empty the ice container because it will thaw some and freeze back solid. Most of the time spent defrosting the coils

Followed easy video instructions. Loosened the necessary bolts, etc. Replaced hinge assembly, lined up door, lubed the hinge with vasoline. Works perfectly now. May purchase another assembly as spare as it appears this may be a common repair issue.
