Condenser fan motor was running slow. This was not a problem included in your list of possible problems. I thought that maybe the capacitor was bad but have no way to check it. So I ordered one. when I received it, I installed it. That was not the problem. So I ordered a fan motor and installed it. That was not the problem. So finally I ordered a control board and installed it. That solved the problem. So maybe you should put "cond.fan motor runs slow" in your list of possible faults and what causes that problem. Capacitor was easy to install, simply remove the cover plate, flip off retaining wire, unplug the capacitor and replace. Fan motor was a bit more difficult. It must be removed from mount after fan scroll is removed. Remove one screw that holds scroll, bend the top down and remove. Then pull hard on fan blade to remove it. It must be installed on new motor. Two screws in frame mount can be removed with some effort if you have a 1/4" drive ratchet with a Phillips screwdriver bit. Then pull frame open and install new motor. Push fan blade on new motor shaft hard. Replacing control board was easy. I used a pair of long nose pliers with 90 degree bend to get mounting pins closed to pull board off.

Cam Hinge Replacement Refrigerator Door

I watched the "How To" video on the Parts Select web site twice. The video was very helpful, kind of like having someone right there with you showing you how to replace the hinge. I emptyed the door shelves, removed the top hinge hexscrews and easily lifted the door off the lower hinge, pieces of the broken cam hinge on the door fell off. I set the door on the floor in front of the sink with the handle edge on the floor. I unbolted the hinge and installed the new one. I loosened one screw on the door cam hinge and removed the other, easily replacing the broken part. Before tightening the screws I checked to make sure the hinge hole in the door was not blocked by the new cam hinge. I lifted the door and water ran out from somewhere. I tried to set the door on the lower hinge several times with no luck. I rechecked the hole, it was still clear. I tried placing the door on the refrigerator using the seal to hold it in place, that worked but I couldn't get the door to drop down onto the hinge. I played with it some more and finally got it in place, reinstalled the top hinge, mopped up the water and tried the door. It didn't self close. I adjusted the top hinge a couple of times and applied a little silicone to the hinges, it still didn't self close. I told my wife to make sure the door closes completely and reloaded the stuff into door. After a couple of days it now closes by itself like it's supposed to. In retrospect, I was alone doing the replacement and it really was an easy job but a second person to help line up the lower hinge would have helped a lot.

The refrigerator door had to be pushed close.

Using the #2 Phillips screwdriver I removed the top hinge cover from the top of the freezer door. Next I used the 5/16 nut driver to remove the 2 bolts holding the top hinge in place. Once it was removed I was able to lift the door off the bottom hinge. Placing the door on a flat work surface I loosened the bottom bolt holding the cam in place. I next removed the bolt holding the hinge in place. I was then able to remove the broken cam and replace it with the new one. I then replaced the bottom bolt making sure the hole for the cam and the hole for the hinge are lined up. I then tightened the bottom hinge bolts. I carefully placed the door back on the bottom hinge and put the top hinge back on.

Broken plastic closure cam

I blocked the bottom of the door(CAREFULLY!!) in position to elevate the door & take strain off the lower hinge & pivot post, while maintaining proper door alignment. I removed the two screws holding the hinge & post assembly from the frame, saving the screws & spacer for reuse. I removed the two screws holding the upper cam bracket on the door, again keeping the attaching parts. I installed and carefully aligned the new cam, original spacer & retaining plate to the lower edge of the door. I installed the new hinge & post assembly using the existing spacer & screws. I aligned the door & seal while checking the gap from top to bottom and from side to side. I carefully tighten the screws and rechecked the gap between the door & frame as well as the alignemnt of the door seal. Once satisfied with the alignment, I finished tightening the screws. I emphasize care and extreme caution in reinstalling the screws, they are a self-tapping (self-threading) type of fastener and this requires caution to make sure they are started and installed in the original threads of the door & frame. I put them all in using only finger pressure until I was positive they were started straight, going into the original threads, NOT trying to cross-thread or cut new threads, the structure is too thin for that and stripped threads will result! The door alignment and gap spacing is critical, make sure to check these adjustments carefully to ensure proper operation. Total time of repair, less than 15 minutes. I hope I have not over-simplified this because I have over 55 years of Automotive shop experienced and an ASE Certified Master Auto & Truck Technician...:-)
