Holes didn't match threaded backing plate

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Removal was easy. The problem was that the old hinge had screws approximately 3/4 inch apart. The new hinge assembly had screws 1 inch apart. The threaded backing plate matched the 3/4 inch spaced old hinge but would not line up with the new one. There was a hole in the refrigerator frame but no way to hold the screw from the back. I had to fine a bolt and nut that would fir and still be heavy enough to hold the weight of the door. This repair took place at my cabin--miles from any hardware store. I found a long enough bolt and nut but it was a little too big for the hole in the hinge. I had to drill the hole in the hinge out so it would fit. Trying to reach the back of the bolt with a nut was a problem. I used tape wrapped backwards on my finger to hold the nut and then reached around to start the bolt into the nut. It too a few tries but I finally got it. Bottom screw was not a problem. It took about an hour and a half to fix the door but it works fine now.

Very poor cooling and frost started to show on freezer's rear panel

I unplugged the refrigerator and took off the 4 freezer rear panel screws with a phillips screwdriver. The whole freezer coil behind it was covered with frost and that took most of the time to melt. I used a hair dryer for a bit and left it open a while. The part comes with 2 heaters, 2 screws each (4 total) I took off one at a time and replaced it with the new one just to make it easier. Then I replaced the rear panel. Anyone even a kid can do this. Just be very careful handling the heaters because they are covered in glass. Also let the frost melt completely before installing the new part.

on the refrigerator side remove two screws from hinge on top of door, pick doorup to remove from bottom hinge using a 5/16 socket remove the two screws holding hinge in place, replace with new hinge. on the door loosen up the screws, no need to remove. the screw closest to the hing axis remove completely remove the old cam, insert new cam lined up with axis of hinge reinsert screw, place door back on hinge and replace hinge on top. the freezer side has water an ice in the door.at the bottom [grill has been removed] of the door a plastic tubing has to be disconnected [make sure water is off] the disconnect is near the door, the coupling is only finger tight. uncou[ple plastic coupling and pull out of connection, pull the nut and ferule off the tubing. now take top hinge off, remove door straight up while feeding plastic tubing thru hinge. the hinge is replaced the same way as the other side. when new hinge an cam are in place, lift door up now feed the plastic tubing thru the hinge till door is in place, replace top hinge. when you reconnect the plastic tubing it helps if you place a lubricant on the end so that you slide the nut and ferule on. the connection should only be finger tight, no wrenches

Watched a youtube on capacitors- though on a motor with a pulley, the symptoms were the same, motor running and pulley not turning-bad capacitor. Took a chance for a 17+ dollar part vs a new compressor. It worked.

Hinge Assembly broke

Very easy to repair. Make sure you have a block of wood the distance from the floor to the refrig door so the door does not fall on you. Remove the two bolts holding the door and carefully lift the door away from the fridge and lower it so it clears the top hinge. Carefully lay the door on it's side so you can remove the other two bolts and the other hinge. Remove the plastic refrig dairy door so it does not fall on the floor and crack when you remove the refrig door. Reverse the process to assemble.

Replaced the gasket and the hinge assembly. Replaced the hinge assembly on the freezer door as well since it was worn. YOU DO NOT NEED A DREMEL to cut anything. People doing that are trying to save $10 but don't do it. Just order the hinge assembly. It comes with the loose cam riser and the second cam riser that is attached to the hinge. DON'T CUT ANYTHING. Super easy. I prepped the door for the hinge replacement the night before. Removed fridge magnets, etc. Moved everything from inside the door to the shelves. Got home from work (package was there in two days, fast) and it took 5 minutes for the Fresh Food Door hinge replacement. Removed hinge cover, removed 4 hex screws (two on top and two on bottom). Swapped hinge and cam. Be sure to use the cam that came with the hinge. Always replace in pairs. Freezer was more tricky. Turned off water. Had to remove a clip (small phillips head screw) on the white tubing. Unscrewed plastic nut. Pulled off spring from tubing. Set spring, nut, and clip with screw aside. Removed hinge cover, unplugged electronics, removed 4 hex screws (two on top and two on bottom). Swapped hinge and cam. Super easy.
