This was a Mother/Daughter feat. We viewed the video based on the bottom hinge assembly part that we had ordered. We did it exactly as shown and it was so easy. But while we had the door off we also had a chance to really clean the frigerator inside out. We were extremely happy that we were able to repair the frigerator oursleves and how much money we had saved by doing it. Thanks

Removed the door, removed old hinge, aligned the new one. Replaced door, then adjusted the door so that it lined up correctly and had same size gape top and bottom between the double doors. Tightened up all bolts and screws and made sure door opened and closed properly. Watched the video that was available to show how to replace hinge correctly. This helped a lot.

Several months ago I had to replace the hinge and cam on the refrigerator door and the repair went smoothly as pictured in the video. This time I had to replace the cam on the freezer door so I ordered the hinge assembly, which included the cam. The web site confirmed that, according to the model number of my 27 year old refrigerator, the hinge assembly would fit. The problem I had was that the top hole in the hinge was positioned too high to fit the hole in the refrigerator so I had to put the old hinge back on, even though it showed some wear. The door closes smoothly by itself now.

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.

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.

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.

I watched the repair video. Replaced the cam on the bottom of the door and the hinge pin. Now the door closes on its own, just like brand new.

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...:-)

I removed the lower cover plate and placed a small scissor jack (used my car jack) under the refrigerator door, loosened the upper hinge, slightly raised jack to take the weight off of the lower hinge, removed the hinge with a 5/16 nut driver and the cam with a 5/16 socket. Installed new hinge and cam, removed door support and secured top hinge, check operation. Worked GREAT, did not have to remove door.
