Customerdana from winston-salem NC

Door dragging causing it not to seal complete

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.

CustomerThomas from Easton PA

Refrigerator door would not self close. Had to physically close it.

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.

Door would not stay shut and had to be pushed closed

Supported door in the closed position to keep door from falling with wood 2X4s. After that it was easy to replace lower hinge.

CustomerJULES from CENTENNIAL CO

Door would not close on its own. Stopped 1" short of closing unless pushed in all the way

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.

CustomerJames from Texarkana TX

Ref door would not close properly causing excess condensation... this in turn caused water to leak under door and rusted the door hinge.

Simply remove the ref door bracket at top and remove the door from the bottom hinge pin...Then replace the lower hinge, hinge pin and door closer... Reinstall the door and adjust for level...This took only 25 min to fix.
