Refidge door would pop open all the time.

We thought we were in need of a new seal around the door but as my husband checked the door he found out it was a piece under the door that holds it up so the door was not sealing right when it closed. I went on line. Found this site and found my fridge. My husband viewed the pics of the parts and figured out we needed a cam. I ordered my part and could not believe it came the very next day!!! I didn't even pay for anything other then regular delivery. He took off the door and it was simple to just slip on the new part and replace and put the door back on.. Nothing much to tell here. Less then 30 minutes. Thank you so much for the quick service getting it out to us. I was about to put a child lock on the door just to keep it closed..

Fridge door friction / not swinging shut

Removed the door, laid the door on its side, and pulled the worn part from the door. Inserted the new part, reattached the door, and it works like a charm. The parts diagram online was very helpful. I ended up purchasing a part I didn't need in case an unidentified washer came with it, but I didn't need it. No big deal.

Fridge door wouldn't stay closed

Removed the door with Socket set & removed the lower door closing cam, replaced it with the new one and reattached the door. Biggest part of the problem was diagnosing the part needed. I replaced the filter while I was at it.
