Removed the nut holding the plastic cover plate at the top of the door. Removed the 3 nuts holding the latch to the fridge. Lifted the door up and laid it on its' side. 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. Took less than 15 minutes and the door is like new. Watching the video on the web site was perfect.

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!

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.

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!!

Refrigerator door was clicking when opening or shutting.

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.

The refridgerator door would not shut on its own. It had to be pushed completely shut every time it was opened.

I went to the PartSelect online videos and watched this one: "Refrigerator Repair - Replacing the Door Closing Cam (GE Part# WR2X4901)," to assess whether or not this could be a do-it-yourself repair. Even though the subject of the video was demonstrated on a refridgerator model different from mine, it appeared similar enough for me to get the idea of how to accomplish the repair, so I used the PartSelect site to guide me to the parts needed to do it. The parts came in and I once again watched the video and then proceeded with the repair. The repair was very simple and easily accomplished - took a half hour total. If you watch the video referred to above, you'll see exactly the way I did it. My experience precisely mirrored that shown in the video. One hint: I did spend some time wondering if I should have emptied the refridgerator before starting the job, and decided not to. It was the wise choice as the job went so fast, removing all the food would have been a waste of time. The door was off maybe 20 minutes total, and that was only enough time to raise the temperature inside about 5 degrees, which was quickly recovered when I re-installed the door. I can't say enough good about the PartSelect site, for the superb guidance in parts selection, as well as the extremely helpful how-to videos. I probably would not have attempted the repair on my own if not for the help this site provided. Thank you very much for this valuable service.
