Empty all the good stuff stored in the door. Remove top hinge, lift off door. Remove bottom hinge from door and refrigerator, replace with new hinges. Replace door and reinstall top hinge. Very simple. Worst part was removing all the stuff stored in the door then putting it back! My parts arrived very quickly and I'm very pleased with Part Select.

The lady of the house was happy. Started shopping for a new fridge. Went on line and found this site with U-Tube video on how to replace the defrost timer. Armed with this newly found knowledge I purchased one from a local vendor for $ 40. Parts Select had it listed for $26. The lady of the house had her doubts and a new unit all picked out so I had to move quick. I removed the rear cover in the freezer section. Put down a couple towels and defrosted the evaporator coils and installed the new defroster timer. Tested the old defrost timer and confirmed it was bad. After 24 hrs the temperatures were good. Still the lady of the house was still shopping. To prove to her I am a refrigerator repairman I pulled the the back cover off the freezer section off again to show her what an expert I am. Dang if it wasn't frozen up again. Checked the defrost heater for continuity and found it to be faulty as well.. Defrosted coils again and ordered new defrost heater from parts select for $68. Local vendor wanted over $120 and it wasn't in stock. Got part delivered regular shipping in less then 72 hrs. By now I am a pro at taking off back cover and defrosting coils. Replaced defrost heater in less then 10 min. Put unit back in service. A week later removed back cover and inspected. All is well. The lady of the house is looking at vacations now instead. I highly suggest this site to save a ton of money. A volt meter helps a lot when it comes to trouble shooting these issues. Bottom line Parts Select saved the day not mention a few cases of beer!

Door would not close.

With my wife's help, we emptied the door shelves and removed the door to the kitchen table. The video and instructions for replacing the parts were 100% right. We probably spent more time cleaning the door bottom and gasket than actually changing the hinge assembly! The job went very smoothly and saved us from overspending on a repair to this old fridge, or worse, making a quick decision on buying a new one.

I viewed a how-to video on partselect.com. I removed all items from the door shelves. Used a screw driver to remove the top "hinge" plate. Used a nutdriver to remove the door hinge plate. Removed door, laid on it's side-hinge side up (if you don't have a helper, lay it on a flat service). Simply removed the broken bottom plate and replaced with new part, and reinstalled on refrigerator. Super Simple!

I followed the instructions of the other DIY selfers wrote on how they took it apart and put it back together. Only thing that took longer was melting the ice. Other than that they gave good instructions. Had it out and back in within 10 maybe 15 mins. most. Have a brand new fridge, probably could last me another 18 years.

First, depending on when you find out your problem, be prepared to toss out spoiled food. Unplug the unit. Since you must allow the ice build up on the coil to melt, be prepared for water. Use towels placed under the coil in the freezer to soak this up or it will end up on the floor. Remove ice maker bucket as the ice will melt, that is if there is any. In my case the defrost timer was bad but I later learned that my defrost heater was also bad. Do yourself a favor and change both the defrost timer and defrost heaters. This issue is generally an age issue so replacing both will give you peace of mind. Also, clean the whole freezer as this is the time to do it. You will be surprised at the ice maker bucket cleanliness. Time to prepare and clean is what takes additional time. Time to repair is short and simple. One last thing, when replacing the defrost timer try not to mess with the temp. control slides as you will have to put them back in the proper positions for reassembly of the cover.

Refrigerator Door Won't Self-Close

First off, Parts Select has a great YouTube video showing exactly how to replace this refrigerator hinge cam. This repair was for my sister's 20-year old GE refrigerator. I used to do this same repair every 3 years on an expensive fridge my wife and I owned - one that had additional wood panels mounted on the door. The panels exceeded the hinges' designed weight limit, so every 3 years I replaced the bottom plastic hinge cams. On that fridge, I could replace BOTH interlocking hinge cams - one pair on each door. On my sister's fridge, the bottom cam of the pair appeared to be riveted onto the frame - rendering it impossible to replace. You may be able to replace both interlocking cams or only the top half cam. You won't know until you lift the door off and look. The bottom cam sits at a 90 degree angle to the door cam and it remains attached to the bottom frame of the refrigerator. These are easy to replace and their design is ingenious. The job is simple and well worth tackling if only to see how your door works. My sister's bottom cam was worn out, but not broken. The blessing: replacing the top half of that cam - the part attached to the bottom of the door - allowed the door to open and close LIKE NEW! The door worked perfectly and I'm thankful to Parts Select for having the hard-to-find cam and for shipping it overnight to me while visiting my sister in Ohio. Now her 20 year old refrigerator door closes on its own, tight as a drum, as if it was brand new. To be safe, I ordered (2) pieces - the matching top and bottom of the pair - but due to the rivet, could only replace one cam. The original $3 "fiber" shim was still good, but I replaced it anyway. I recommend taking cell phone photographs as you go so you know exactly how to re-assemble the three or four interlocking parts of the hinge. I referred to my photos as I re-assembled the new cam. Clearing items off the fridge door: 10 minutes. Removing the shelves, unscrewing the top and lifting the door to the counter: 10 Minutes. Disassembling the hinge, cleaning the area and reassembling the cam/hinge: 20 Minutes. Cleaning the bottom cam area of the Fridge mount and re-mounting the door: 10 Minutes.

slide fell apart

Ordered part on line, arrived the next day. Looked at the screw (phillips head). Had trouble dropping screws but got our magnetic phillips head and it worked like a charm. So proud of myself as my husband did not have to do a thing.

The refrigerator door would not close on its own because the cam was wore out.
