Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

Refrigerator door would not close properly

I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.

Very loud clicking noise when opening/closing door

I did it a bit different from instructions mainly because I disassembled it to troubleshoot before going on line to find part and "easier" instructions.I had a 5" block of wood and cut a shim to use with that to hold the door up. I got on my hands and knees with a mirror and removed the lower hinge plate then the screws holding the upper and lower cams. These both were quite worn so I just took them to my shop and with a hand grinder I rounded off the sharpo corners of the cogs of both cams and then reassemble the hinge plate and cams. This eliminated the loud clicking and the door closed easily but I was afraid it woulod not "Auto Close" when needed so I went online to find this page with the parts needed along with wonderful instructions. I ordered both upper and lower cams which came 2 days later (THANKS). I installed them my way since I did not want to empty the door contents and remove the whole door. I used the block, mirror and nut driver to R&R the bottom hinge plate and both cams. Time was still less than 15 minutes, Easy Fix, Thanks guys! Cheers, Ben

First, removed the top hinge (3 screws), then lifted the door off the bottom hinge. Replaced the Cam on the bottom of the door and then the Cam on the bottom hinge (one screw for each). Placed the door back on the bottom hinge, reinsert the top hinge into the door and secure top hinge to the refrig with the 3 screws original removed. EASY!!

Followed instructions on this website. Only difference I placed a couple blocks under the door to keep it from dropping & removed both cams at the same time. No need to remove the door from the unit.

Lower door closing cam was completely worn down so door wouldn't close on it's own. Ordered parts which arrived in a couple of days. After watching installation video on this website the job looked pretty easy. Needed socket wrench to loosen nuts at top, they were really tight. Removed door. Replaced both the cam on the bottom of door and the cam on the main unit, put door back on making sure it was straight and lined up properly. Retightened top nuts securely. Voila, problem fixed in only about 15 minutes or so.

The refrigerator door was not staying closed. Arriving home we found it open and not running. The compressor was off on thermal overload. In checking that and while cleaning the condenser I noticed the refrigerator door was 1/4" lower than the freezer. I saw how the door cams worked to keep the doors closed. The installation was easy. I blocked up the door. Removed the old cams using a small socket and installed the new. Door cams tool less than fifteen minutes.

Replacing the door closing cams, starts with emptying the door of all foodstuffs. Remove upper hinge cover. While supporting the door, remove three upper hinge screws with the nutdriver. Lift upper hinge from top and lift door off lower hinge pin. Remove the cam retaining screws on both the bottom of the door and the lower hinge pin. Pry (if needed) the worn cams from their position. Install new cams making sure to line up the screw holes. Re-install screws, tightening just snug. Lift door back onto lower hinge pin. Set upper hinge back in place with screws loosely installed. Check door gap, top to bottom to ensure proper alignment. Tighten upper hinge screws and re-install hinge cover. Check door for proper function.

Refrigerator door would not close by itself

I've replaced the door cams in the past, but they didn't last very long. I finally realized on my own that both parts need to be replaced at the same time. One piece is on the case-side of the bottom hinge and the mate is on the door-side of the bottom hinge. They both have a ramp shape, with door ramp riding up the hinge ramp as you open the door. The ramp shape makes the door want to slide back down the ramp to close automatically. These are plastic parts that wear out over time. If you don't replace both at the same time, the ramp shapes don't match and they wear out quickly. They are inexpensive parts, so always replace both at the same time. I added a thin layer of petroleum jelly to help them glide better. Hopefully this fix will last a long time. It's extremely easy. First take off the top hinge of the door. Then lift the whole door off the bottom hinge. You can set it on a chair with the bottom hinge hanging over the edge of the chair. Replace the two parts, one on the door bottom hinge and one on the refrigerator case bottom hinge. Easy as pie. The only tool needed is a nut driver. You need a helper to help lift and balance the door while you work on it.

I unloaded the door, removed the cap covering the screws at the top hinge. I removed the screws then lifted the door off the pin. Next I removed the screws holding the door cams in place. Replaced both cams and screws, set the door back on the pin then reinstalled the three screws at the top. Snapped back on the cover and I was done. Door works perfectly.

I removed the top door hinge cover, removed the top hinge, pulled the refrigerator door off, layed it on the floor, removed the door cams, installed the new door cams, replaced the doo and top hinge and hinge cover. If you have this problem with your refrigerator door, be sure to replace the upper and lower cam.

Door wouldn't automatically close tight

If you have to push your door to close it and it doesn't close on its own, this is your fix. These door cams are two plastic pieces on the bottom hinge, one on the door and one on the bracket that goes to the body, that engage like a gear with only a couple of teeth. They are supposed to have raised teeth that engage to ride the door to a closed position when it is nearly closed. They are plastic and are made to wear down. To change, empty the door, then at the top of the door (i.e., looking down from above) unscrew two bolts that go to the hinge. The door then lifts off the bottom bracket. Put the door on a soft surface and unscrew the bolt that holds this cam. You can re-use the bolt. There is another cam bolted to the bracket that stays attached to the fridge. Change both cams at the same time. Reverse the process to re-install the door. Your door will close like new for under $10, in maybe 15-30 minutes.

First I removed the top bracket cover screw with a 5/16" nut driver. placing it aside, I removed the three screws holding the top door hinge off using a 5/16" socket on a 1/4 drive to free the screws , then continued to remove them with the nut driver. placing them aside on top of the refrigerator. Then I lifted the door up and off the lower hinge and laid the door down on my kitchen counter. I removed the lower hinge piece from the lower bracket still on the fridge with a 5/16" nut driver and installed the new piece in its place and also applied a few dots of Vaseline on the lower hinge piece, I then removed the screw and lower bracket from the door and installed the new one and also applied some Vaseline on this piece also. I also took a rag that had been dipped in olive oil and rubbed the entire gasket surround the door to lubricate the gasket to keep it soft, then I reinstalled the door back onto its lower bracket, and then lined door back up correctly and reinstalled the top mounting bracket and screws then the cover, and then tested door. Door opens now with no noise and opens easier also.
