1.Emptied the stuff from inside of the fridge door.
2.Using a phillips screw driver I removed the plastic cover over the top hinge.
3. Using a small ring spanner I removed the two bolts holding the top hinge (pin), removed the hinge and lifted the door off the bottom pin.
4.Using the same spanner I removed the bottom hinge containing the broken plastic cam.
5.Replaced the broken hinge with the new one and put a little grease on the hinge pin.
6.Placed the new plastic cam on the hinge pin and refitted the door.
7.Replaced the top hinge and plastic hinge cap, Job Done!

A couple of points a) When your plastic cam needs replacing, always buy the hinge pin & plastic cam. The pin has a plastic cam welded to it and as this is the partner of the plastic cam it will also be worn so you should replace them as a pair.
b) You will spend more time cleaning the 'out of the way' parts of the fridge than actually carrying out the repair.

My fridge is now as good as new.

Part No. PS290199 received matched part No. ordered, which I obtained from your WEB site, however, part did not exactly match OEM part. It was necessary to drill a new top hole in each of the hinges. New hole center was drilled 1/2" off (lower) then hole in supplied part. Jpb could have been accomplished easily by the avg. homeowner, but the drilling required a little more skill & possible some tools that an average homeowner does not possess. Otherwise job was relatively easy and satisfactorily completed.

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!

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
