Emptied contents from the door. Removed top hinge cover (one screw) and top hinge (two bolts.) Lifted door off and replaced broken cam riser on bottom hinge. Put door back on.
Remoed bottom hinge and replaced broken cam riser. Replaced Bottom hinge.
Removed trim cap at top of door. Removed two hex head screws and lifted top hinge off door. Lifted door off lower hinge. Unscrewed broken cam riser from bottom of door and replaced with new part which was then screwed into place. Replaced door on lower hinge, Replaced upper hinge onto top of door, replaced screws and replaced trim. Easy peasy. :-)
I could see a broken part but couldn't tell exactly how it was oriented on the hinge. I bought just the cam riser but then thought I needed the hinge kit based on what I read on this site. Then I saw better pictures of the hinge kit on another site & realized there are 2 cam risers that meet. The one riveted to the hinge was fine (in my case) - I only needed the upper one...a very inexpensive repair. Do NOT remove the door for this repair. Slide the door up a bit while closed and use a pint-sized paint can to prop it up. Make the repair and remove the can...done.
very easy, thanks for the great selection for parts.
Unscrewed white cover cap, removed 3 screws on door hinge, lifted door off, laid it on carpet replaced defective part.
Removed food and trays from door. This took longer than the actual repair. Removed top hinge cover (1 phillips screw) and top hinge (2ea 5/16" hex bolts). Removed door, replaced hinge assembly on refrigerator (2ea 5/16" hex bolts)which included a new hinge cam (they don't tell you this, but the cam is included in the assembly so you don't need to order a seperate cam) I now have a spare cam. Piece of cake...your mom could do it!!
1. Blocked up the door keep it steadily and enable ease access to screws.2. Removed screws holding the door closing cam and lower door attach bracket. 3. Disconnected clamp holding the water supply line for the water and ice dispenser and disconnected the water line at the joint.4. Removed the broken cam and put the new one in it's place, threading the water supply line through the hole of the cam.5. Put everything back together in reverse sequence of removal.
I had to remove the top hinge of the door and shut off the water supply to the automatic ice maker. I then unhooked the water line and pulled it through the guide as I took the door off. Once the door was off, I removed one bolt with the nut driver and replaced the cam. I reversed the above actions and replaced the door. It is very important to adjust the door so the seal fits tightly and evenly all round the door. It was a relatively simple procedure that went very smoothly.
