I simply followed the excellent video, once I discovered the lower door hinge was the problem. Part Select was amazing! A $25 part and 15 minutes saved me $1,200+ ... the price of a replacement refridgerator. Thank you!

Found small black plastic pieces on the floor under the freezer door.

After watching your instruction video and not wanting to shut down refrigerator and remove foods from door, I elected to lift the door and place blocking under it.The actual hinge replacement took approximately 10 mins. I would also like to say that I am extremely satisfied with PartSelects handling of my order and your promptness resending my order because of my goof-up with my own address. I am grateful and will recommend you to anyone who needs parts for any appliance. Thanks again. Chuck Gjovig

Just watch the Parts Select YouTube videos on replacing the door hinges. That helped a lot.

All I needed was a phillips head screw driver and a 5/16ths socket wrench. Easy after watching the video a few times.

Removed the refrigerator door. Replaced the cam riser bushing on the bottom of the door. I then removed the hinge bracket on the bottom of the refrigerator after removing the grill (oh yuk, what a mess under the refrigerator). I put the new bracket on and replaced the door. All is working well again. Thanks for the hints and the parts.

I removed the taped on bottle bar, attached the end cap on the right side of the bottle bar and reinserted the end cap tabs into the refrigerator door receptacle.
The refrigerator is 25 years old and I was surprised to find the part available. Thank you, PART SELECT.com

Discovered the door cam was broken. Did a search, found the part on PartSelect.com. Read the repair stories and realized I need two cams. So I just bought the whole hinge assembly figuring it would be a little easier and did not cost that much more.

Put blocks under the door, unbolted the old hinge from the refrig, and the old cam from the door. Replaced them with the new parts, and I was all set. Took about 15 to 20 minutes. Had my wife stand by the door just in case it fell, which I knew it wouldn't.

Door wouldn't automatically close, dropped a bit

First removed plastic cover off top hinge with phillips screwdriver. Used nut driver to loosened screws on upper hinge to 1/2 inch out and then used wood blocks to shim up door as high as possible while still in closed position. Used socket wrench to remove lower hinge and fitting from bottom of door, while still closed. Installed new lower hinge and door fitting with socket wrench. Lowererd door to sit on bottom hinge and then adjusted position of top hinge before tightened those screws with nut driver. Reinstalled plastic cover. Piece of cake!
