This lower hinge pin is almost two inches long. It is made entirely of plastic and it is all black in color.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I removed the three screws in the top hinge that hold the upper right corner of the door to the body of the unit. Then I just lifted the door off of the refrigerator. I proped the door up just long enough to pull out the old pin (plastic) and put the new one in place. Next I picked up the door and set it on the new hinge, and last I put the three screws back into place. It has taken me about as long to type this out as it did to actually make the repair. The part was also very reasonably priced so I purchased two since this items has been replaced previously.

Replacing the hinge pin itself is really easy. Most important is to brace the bottom of the door before replacing the pin, otherwise the door will drop as the bottom hinge must be removed to install the new pin.A couple of short lengths of 2x4s used to brace the door bottom worked fine. With these in place the door did not drop down after removing the hinge. Replacement of the hinge and pin easy.
Supported door in the closed position to keep door from falling with wood 2X4s. After that it was easy to replace lower hinge.
Cleaned out the door. Loosened the top hinge. Lifted the door off hinge pins. Replaced lower hinge, hinge pin and closer. Put door back on. Tightened upper hinge back down on door. Done. Very easy and door is not that heavy.
This was easy. Removed the plastic cover at the top hinge. Removed the 3 screws at the top hinge. Lifted the door off of the bottom hinge and laid it on it's side. The part that was worn out is the "natural door closer". It looks like this part will need to be replaced every few years, it is made of plastic and was ground down to nubs. Remove the screws holding it down and replace it with the new one. Lubed it up with some WD40 to get rid of squeaks. I also replaced the lower hinge pin, but I don't think that was necessary.
Most of the time was sent to removing and replacing door shelves. Pry off upper hinge cover. Easy, it's only plastic. Remove 3 fastener from top hinge and remove hinge. Lift door off lower hinge. Lay door down on table let handle hang over edge. Remove door closer attach fastener. Remove and replace door closer. Pry lower hinge up and out. Tap new lower hing pin into place. Replace door, upper hinge and hinge cover. Had to replace Door Closer and Hing Pin together; both were worn and needed replacing.
