pulled top hinge pin off with 5/16 nut driver ,lifted door off and was able to see both parts and replaced them just like they were,easy fix
Removed all the adjustable shelves inside the door. Removed the top hinge cover (1 nut). then the top hinge bracket (3 nuts). The door doesn't weight very much so you shouldn't have to worry about the door just falling off after you remove the top hinge. then simply lift the door off the bottom hinge and carefully lay it down. One nut in each of the plastc cams on the bottom of the door and an easy swap out with the new parts. A little vaseline one at least one of the surfaces of the cam, reverse the order and simply put things back together and your good to go. Door closes on its own like new. You might as well get both parts for the lower cam and swap them out simultaniously since you have the door off. PLEAS NOTE: Yes there are two different parts for this repair.
Part arrived overnight. The How-To video at PartSelect showed the procedure exactly. It took about 30 minutes.
pulled all shelves from refrigerator door. unscrew the top plate and lift door out of bottom. pulled old cams off the door and the lower bracket and installed the new cams. put door back on and screwed the top bracket back on. installed the door shelves back in the door. never took the food off the door shelves. easy, easy, easy.
We dealt with this problem for well over six months. Last week while visiting our home my mother tried to schedule a repair man to come out. Upon hearing this conversation i urged her to hang up the phone and let me fix it. This prompted me to go on line and find the three dollar part needed to fix it. With the help of a friend to lift and hold the door i unbolted the black closer piece and replaced it with the new one. This whole process took less than 10 minutes and completely fixed the problem. The service visit would have cost upwards of $80.00 so this was well worth the two days shipping i paid for.
First empty the shelves on the refrig. door. Then removed the upper hing cover and removed the three screws holding the hinge to the body of the refrigerator. Lifted the door off the bottom hinge and placed it clear of the unit.Inspected the bottom hinge and cleaned off the screw holding the closing cam, then with a nutdriver removed the screw holding the cam and removed the cam from the hinge. Installed a new cam closer, secured the cam with a screw. Hanged the door back on the lower hinge and re-installed the upper hinge. Job Complete!
