Bottem assembly broken off causing door to make loud noice when opening or closing.

Shiimmed up the door unscrewed top and bottem hinges and replaced the bottem assembly. Note, if you do this replace the entire assembly because the hinge itself has a cam which is built into the hinge, therefore you must replace it also.

Hinge cam riser wore out and split into peices

I checked the exploded view of the door assembly and the box assembly and determined the parts needed to properly solve the problem. I guessed correctly that the lower cam on the hinge assembly should be replaced at the same time since they had to work together. It ended up I had just the right parts and all of the nut head fasteners were the same size so only one wrench was needed. The door did have to be removed by detaching the top hinge as well.

The part arrived very fast, I had read other posts about emptying the door etc so that all made it go really fast. I changed the part out in about 10 min. But the shelf removal etc all added up to about 20 - 25 min.

Remove the hinge cap on top, the loosen the bolts, remove the hinge. Pick up the door from the lower hinge, lay it down and place the cam riser on the lower hinge. Replace the door, install the top hinge and check the alignment and you are done.
