Just used a screw driver to remove the old part and install the new one. The gal on the phone from parts select was excellent helping me find the correct part. Highly recommend this web site.

Noticed the fan was not working properly and went online and found out that was the cause. I immediately ordered the part that night at 8:21pm and received the motor and fan blade the next day. I flipped the refrigerator on its side and removed the 3 hex bolts, took off the fan blade first and removed the wires from the motor. I put in the new motor and then added on the new blade and put the 3 hex bolts back on and the wires. The whole process took about 30 minutes. Piece of cake.

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.

Fridge cam broke, door barely closed and crooked

I followed your terrific video. I first got all tools ready, covered a table in cardboard, and removed food from the fridge door. I removed the cap and screws on top of the door hinge. Lifting the door off was simple, and after laying the door on the table, the retaining screw was easily loosened, and the cam screw removed. The only problem was that half the thin gasket under the broken cam was missing. No new gasket came with the part. I wanted the new cam to lay flat, so I made a partial gasket from a matchbook cover and filled the gap. It all went back together quickly. Just have tools ready beforehand. Ten minute job, unless you have to make a new gasket or part of one. Thanks, guys.

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.

Took door off. Replaced two cams at bottom of door, referencing those on the bottom of the freezer door. Also followed a video on the net. Worked like a jewel!

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH
