Used the suggested problem list here to narrow down that the repair was most likely the run capacitor. Poped the new one in and I now have better control of my compartment ranges. I have a temperature gauge in each compartment. Check them every opening of the doors.

Heard a five second buzzing sound repeated 4 or 5 times per cycle coming from rear lower left compressor side.

Removed the six screws holding the bottom access plate found at the rear of the refrigerator. This gives you easy access to the run capacitor that has a retaining clip. Remove the wire clip and pull out the capacitor (it has two quick disconnect terminals). Reverse the process using the new run capacitor to complete the repair.

I simply watched the repair video and did it! Super easy, needed start device and capacitor. As easy as unplugging the old and adding the new. The video helped and gave me confidence. Wives can fix fridges too! Saved me $2500. Looks like I'll need a new excuse if I want a new fridge.

Removed door, removed both upper and lower cam and replaced, applied small amount of vasoline and replaced the door. The entire repair took less than 5 minutes. Door works great. When replacing the cam you need to replace both the upper and lower cam. When you order the parts, the upper cam is on the door schematic and the lower cam is on the refrigerator body schematic. I originally only ordered the upper cam.

All you need is nut driver. Top hinge has 3 screws. Once you remove the screws, lift door. It is light. I place door of my sofa. I removed screws and pried the cam insert with a spatula. You can also you flat screwdriver. I also replace the other piece located at bottom of refrigerator. Now place door back onto metal rest. May need someone near floor to guide you. Once on the rest, close door and replace top screws. Forgot to mention that I emptied door shelves before removing door.

I would never attempt an appliance repair but after watching the video instructions for installing this part I decided to give it a try even though I'm dangerous with a screwdriver. After retrieving a nutdriver from my $39 handy dandy tool set, it was a piece of cake. Upper hinge cover, hinge, door removal, comes off in a matter of minutes. Only problem surfaced when I went to install my new cam in the lower hinge. It didn't fit. It was actually for the upper door hinge. I reinstalled the lower plastic piece (whatever it's called), tightened it down, put the door back on (you can do it yourself if it's the refrig. side) and popping sound was gone. I guess the bottom hinge plastic piece was probably loose but you can't tighten it unless you remove the door. I now have a upper door cam in my drawer ready when it fails and will replace it without hesitation.

Took the bolts at the bottom of the door off and removed the door. Pried out the old cam and put the new one in. Put the door back on and it works like it is brand new. The fridge is 13+ years old

The refrigerator door would not close completely

Removed the refrigerator door (after taking everything out of the shelves). Took the old Lower Door Closing Cam off (it was totally worn down), installed the new one, rehung the door. Rehanging the door took a couple of tries to get it properly aligned. Very easy fix, We thought we had to replace the refrigerator since it is 14 years old, but this fixed the problem completely!

Lower Door Closing Cams Worn down

Openned both doors and removed lower grille. Closed doors and placed a piece of wood underneath door. The piece of wood slightly taller so that it supports and lifts the door while I worked. Working at the bottom of the door removed both upper and lower plastic cams and replaced with new ones. Be sure to tighten the single screw that holds down the plastic cam; if you leave them loose they will split/crack because they will move as you operate the door.
