snapped the wires from frig onto the proper prong and viola,it works. The proper prong is identified by the size because there are two prongs with the wires and two connecting prongs in the socket. I talked to a very helpful representative and she gave me the number for Frigidaire, when I was confused by the placement of the wire. Wish I had remembered her name to share with you. As it turned out I didn't need to call Frigidaire.

Refrigerator Door Hinge Problem

I first ordered the part from a local appliance/repair store in my area. The part was way over priced and they had ordered the wrong part when I went to pick it up. I had provided a picture of the part I need to them / it didn't help. I searched the internet for the needed part and found PartSelect. I found the exact part "I thought I needed" and also saw an additional hinge part that fit in the bottom of the door. I purchased both (figured if one was worn out the other would be soon). Turned out that it was "the additional part" that I needed. I would recommend that you suggest both parts when doing this particular repair. I also liked the fact that you provided pictures of the parts in question . . . recognized it immediately from your site. The repair video provided on the PartSelect sight was very helpful. The repair was a breeze for an old woman. I was very happy with the person who took my order (she was very nice and very professional); and the speed in which I received the part. PartSelect is now saved in my favorites for future reference. I recommend them highly. Thanks for your help. Beverly Brunner

ok, Well I'm glad they emailed this request to talk about my repair because I was really frightened to try to do this thinking that if I messed it up I would be in an even worse situation possibly REQUIRING that I call a repair person for which I had no money. I'm a female and just a little bit handy. I can use a hammer, screwdriver, pliers and the Good Lord gave me a good enough brain that if I take something apart, I can sort of follow what needs to be done. I probably am slightly more handy than most women because I am on my own and need to take care of myself. Recently my financial situation demands I AT LEAST try to take care of small things on my own. I read all the other instructions more than once and I made mental notes about the repeated things that seemed to cause others problems.I removed the plate below the paddles which almost appears that it can't be removed and pulling hard did nothing so I used a small round knife to pry a bit on the inside edge which caused some movement then I could pull it out. Yes, it reveals some screws, duh, of course, at each new part revealed, you must remove the screws. The frightening part was when it revealed the "control panel" which I was a bit frightened to deal with. Once that was removed totally, which is extremely easy, I set it on the counter hoping not to move anything about it. Oh, the ribbon which everyone mentions DID come out but you can deal with that when you put everything back together. You can touch the ribbon in the small slot where it slides into and when you see a green light activated by the touch where you are putting it, you know it is in good. That comes later when you are putting everything back together. I have small hands and I was having a problem getting the part that holds the two paddles (water and ice) so I looked carefully trying to see where the paddle plugs in. I managed to find the upper part of the paddle which was still intact, the part that did not break off. I pulled the wires on that and saw that the wires are attached right in front in a very small white colored "plug" almost right in front and almost right under your nose if you are holding on to that part. I was holding onto it because I couldn't get it out. I used scissors to cut the wire and then plugged in the new wires. I had to use a phillips to unscrew two screws that were holding the part of the broken paddle that is sort of like a lever and it goes over a piece to push against it and dispense water. Those two screws have little small metal flat pieces that fit over them Once you have those screws out you can then remove the old broken remaining piece of the paddle. I had a bit of difficulty fitting the lever of the new paddle into that spot. There is a small sort of trough on each side where each side of the new paddle has a small extending piece that fits into those troughs. It's a small area but you can see in there very well and you just need to be patient to wedge it in there exactly in the right spot and it fits quite tight and almost snaps once you push it in perfectly. Getting those two screws back on is a bit difficult and I lost one of those flat metal pieces that fit over the screw. I couldn't get it back out of the tiny spot it fell into so I finally just made sure the screws were tight and that the other one was in place as it should be. I could see after that was done that the lever could withstand the pressure needed to push on the release that runs the water out so I felt it was ok to not have that small metal plate and I was right. That part was the most difficult. Like everybody else said, just reverse the process. Putting the control panel back I just checked to make sure those little plastic cover pieces are over the little dots in the control panel. It's two pieces, the metal board with the small controls and a plastic piece that covers it and the plastic dots need to be over the bumps in the metal piece. You will see what I mean. T

Hinge Bearing was worn

Watched the tutorial and I would say it took longer to clean the condiments from the door and take the shelves out than the repair. The easiest repair in my life.

The refrigerator cabinet door was making a clicking sound before the cam insert finally broke; this caused the door to not stay closed on it's own.

Took all food out of the refrigerator door. Pulled the door off by unscrewing the 3/8 hex-head screws on top and bottom hinges. The door is relatively light and removes very easy. Unscrewed and removed the broken plastic cam pieces and replaced with the new ones. Replaced the steel hinge, even though it was still in good shape. The hinge kit comes with left and right hinges as well as a spare cam insert with each hinge, so I still have all the left side parts and spare cam insert for the right side for a future fix if needed. The repair itself was extremely easy and took about 10 minutes; the total time that included emptying the food, cleaning the bottom grill plate and replacing the food was about 20 minutes of my evening.
