Lower rh door hinge was making a snapping noise because door closure cam screw backed out and damaged cam by egg-shaping hole.

Removed door. Removed old cam closure assembly. Noticed that there was almost nothing inside the door for screw to screw into(only styrofoam insulation), which is why original screw backed out. Bad design. Got longer screw at bigger diameter. Pushed high strength glue into hole, on screw threads, and underneath screw head. Assembled. Crossed fingers. About three weeks have passed and so far, so good.

1- ice maker stopped working, 2- kick plate grille clips broke off second year of use, 3- bottom cam broke first year of use

First I removed the three screws that held the element in place. I had a problem disconnecting the plug from the ice maker, but using a small screw driver and pushing in the slot to release the plug finally worked. It took about ten minutes to get the plug out of the old ice maker.

One manufacturer error was, not making the electrical wires a little longer to access the ice maker plug better.

This is the second ice maker I have installed in the freezer since 2004 and it is rather easy once the plug was removed.

I then plugged in the new unit, reinstalled the three screws, pulled off the cover and arm from the old unit, and put them onto the new installed unit, and it was ready to work.

The kick plate grille took five minutes to install.

The door closure cam kit was installed in fifteen minutes.

Everything went in really easy, except for the plug disconnection from the old ice maker.

Great do it yourself job done!

Refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed.

Took everything off the door then removed the door from the refrigerator. The old cam unit was completely gone and the shaft for the cam was digging into the door. Installed the new cam and shim and put the door back on. Worked perfect.
Much easier than my wife and I thought it would be. We're both in our sixties and have never done anything like this before. Thank you.

Cam snapped in half on bottom of door

Super easy - emptied door of all food, unscrewed bracket from top of door, lifted door off and set aside. Broken cam removed, new one screwed in, and lubed with some Vaseline. Set door back in new cam, screwed bracket into the top, and good to go. I was kinda worried about shopping from PartSelect since I had never heard about them, but the part was here in less than 2 days. Pretty awesome little company.
