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.

Refrigerator Door Wouldn't Stay Closed

This is for the refrigerator, not the freezer door which is more complicated. First empty the refrigerator door of food and removed the shelves. Remove the hinge cover on the top hinge by removing one bolt. Then, holding the door, remove the top hinge by removing the three bolts in the bracket (not the bolt in the recessed hole). Lift the door off the lower hinge and lay the door on its edge on the floor. Pry the old Door Cam out of the hole in the door with a knife (my Door Cam was ground completely flat). Insert the new Door Cam. Remove the old Lower Door Cam from the lower hinge and insert the new Lower Door Cam. Pick up the door and lower the door onto the lower hinge ensuring the lower hinge pin inserts into the hole in the Door Cam on the door. Reinstall the upper hinge and insert bolts without tightening. Align door and then tighten hinge bolts. Reattach top hinge cover and tighten the single bolt. Test the door to ensure it closes and stays closed. I had to remove the door a second time to rotate the Door Cam slightly to ensure cams were better engaged (tongue in groove style) when the door was closed. Reinstall the shelves and load the door with food.

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!!

Removed the nut holding the door cam and replaced it with the new one. removed the nut holding the lower door cam and replaced it. Put a little vaseline on both cams and re-in-stalled the door.

Removed food from door. Shut off fridge. Removed dust cap at top hinge. Marked location of top hinge with masking tape so lining up when reassembling would be easier. Removed screws holding top hinge to fridge. Removed door, placed on blanket&towel. Removed old door cam. Put on new door cam. Removed old hinge cam. Put on new hinge cam. Put door back on. Replaced top hinge, lining up with tape. Replaced dust cap. Note that door did not really self close very well until it was filled with food. By far the hardest part of the whole operation was that my wife wanted to clean the fridge in the process!

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.

Refrigerator door not staying closed.

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.

Door no longer closing on its own and remaining slightly ajar.

This is a very easy fix. Begin by emptying the contents of the door. Then, just remove hinge cap and remove the three hinge screws. The door can then be lifted off the hinge pin and placed on its side. Once this is done, replace the two can pieces (one on the door and one on the frame). Then just lift the door back in place and secure the hinge. This job can be done by one person (maybe two if you need help place the door on a work surface) and will take just 15 minutes.

Followed the Partselect instructions - removed door, removed old cam and replaced with new cam. One lesson learned. There are two cams - one that sits on hinge below door and one that is up inside bottom of door. If you are replacing one, replace them both.
