The cam broke apart and the pieces were on the floor. The door did not close automatically. This was on the freezer side.

I used the same steps as described in other descriptions listed here. Since I was changing the hinge assembly on the freezer side the difference I discovered was that there was a nylon water hose inside the hinge assembly that I did not at first know how to remove. I finally called a repairman I happened to know and following his instruction simply snapped the hose loose where there was a connector and placed a cloth under it to catch the moisture that drained. Having done that, the rest of the assembly went just the same way as the other instructions listed here said that it would. Door now functions like new.

Cams on hinge assembly broken, door didn't close properly

I supported door with 2* 6 scrap wood. I used cedar shingles to raise door to correct height.
Using a socket wrench, I removed the hinge from the fridge and the cam assembly from the door.
I installed the new hinge and cam using the shims thatwere behind the original parts.
I removed the 2*6 supports and the door now works perfectly.

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.

Door would not close properly

I emptied everything from door compartments.I removed the top cover of the door pivot with a phillips screwdriver. I removed the two screws that that hold the pivot bracket with a 8 mm socket. Lift the door off the bottom pivot bracket. Remove the old bottom pivot bracket with an 8mm socket and replace it with the new cam bushings.You must replace both bushings on the bottom of the door and on the bracket that mounts to the base of the body of the refrigerator. Reinstall the door and screws .The doors should be level with each other if they are installed properly.If not check the freezer door .The bushings may be worn on that door also.
