Door randomly opens on its own/also replaced handles

I had to replace the cam risers on the freezer door. The water line goes up through the hinge that has to be replaced. I turned off the water to the refrigerator, took off the bottom grill of the fridge, and unscrewed the water line (very easy). Then I unscrewed a piece that holds the water line to the fridge. All the pieces had to be off the waterline, so I had to get the joint off the waterline and the metal holder, and the spring piece off - it was pretty easy. Then I had to unbolt the top hinge bolts, pick up the freezer door and completely remove it - lifting it high enough that the water line came free from the lower hinge. I layed the door on the floor. I replaced the cams and replaced everything in order. One extra thing I learned is to make sure that when you tighten the upper hinge back on, be sure to align the door - the screws are set in such a way that you can tip the door to the left or to the right to make sure the two doors arent rubbing on each other. At first, the door didn't shut on its own - we had to push it, but within 24 hours of use, the door would shut on its own without the extra push.

I also replaced the handles on the doors. I even looked on line to figure out how to do this - I don't know if my situation is different - but nothing online helped me. There are these (on my fridge) decorative white strips that are above and below the handle - beyond the pieces that actually hold the handle in. The decorative white strips have to be removed in order to remove/replace the handles. I thought the top cap would pop off or something - they dont. They're screwed on with a hidden screw. When you unscrew the piece that holds in the handle - if you can ease it out, great - but the white strips pop out, and have to be removed in order to get the new handles in. You have to gently put something inbetween the white strip and metal that holds it in and ease it out - straight out toward you. Once you pop out those strips - the rest is easy and self explanatory.
