Your vidio was Brilliant !!i just followed your instructions
replaced old broken part,very easy to repair
I did not realize I needed 2 cams to complete repair. Door cam was riveted in. I had to drill out rivet and replace with nut and bolt. Otherwise it went quite sommothly. At first I just replaced the cam on bottom of refridgerator but door was not quite right when closing. Further inspection showed the door had the other half of cam that also needed replacement. Needed 2 orders. Paid for 2 shippings.
Removed refrigerator door and replaced bottom door pivot with the included mating cam and the door closing cam on the bottom of the door. I didn't know that there were two mating cams and only ordered the door closing cam which I read online was the problem. It was the number one part on the part select list. The number two part was a kit including the door closing cam and the pivot with mating cam attached. It would have been helpful if there had been some notes that said check condition of both cams before ordering the part. So I have a spare door closing cam and paid an extra $19 including $8 shipping which negated a return.The repair is easy - getting the right parts the first time is the trick.
Replaced both upper and lower cam's. Removed door from refrigerator, removed bolts on door cam on bottom of main door and replaced cam, then removed bolts from door hinge assembly, drilled out rivet holding on cam, replaced with new cam and re-riveted.
Why don't they just tell you that you have to buy 2 cams. I have now replaced the cams on both doors. The other door broke about 4 years ago. Fortunately the first time I read the user commetns or I would've bought just one. It is a quick easy fix. The longest step is drilling out and replacing the rivet. Everything else is done with a nut driver.
My wife and I gave an old, but really good refergerator to our son (a Major in the Army). Upon taking it into his house he had to remove the doors of the refergerator. While he put the doors he lost the "cam" for the door, making if difficult to close (actually had to lift the door up and then close it). I ordered the replacement part, and unless I am mistaken, it arrived the same day. I still cannot figure out how this happened, but it was great!!
Followed previous poster's steps. Replacement of door closing cams took 35 minutes. Make sure you buy 2 cams for each door.
Door closing cam was disintegrated, and the matching cam on the hinge assemble was worn too. Replaced the Door Closing Cam, along with the hinge assembly, and door closes fine now.
removed the door, installed the cam riser, and reattached the door. It took longer to remove the contents in the door than it did to install the cam riser.
Replaced the old cams with new ones, door works perfect now.
This my second time to do it after 8 years. Took 10 minutes. 1 Remove all the contents on the side door2 Remove the 2 bolts on top connecting the door to the refrigarator3 Lift and remove the door up and put it the side4 Clean and remove the old door closing cam put the new one5 Door ref is fixed
The bottom of the door was 5 " off the floor. A 2x4 block and a 4x4 block were pushed under the door and supported it while the water line was disconnected the hinge removed and the cam replaced. It was a simple fix and reading other people's experience made the repair so much easier.
With my wife's help and following tips from previous posts, I removed the top hinge screws and lifted the door off the bottom hinge. The shim was old shim and both upper and lower cams were totally flat. I drilled out the rivet in the bottom hinge, replaced the cam and secured the cam with a pan head bolt and nut. I replaced the cam and shim on the door and rehung the dorr. The upper screws were screwed back into place and ta da -- now the door closes and stays closed without sticking that little piece of cardboard between the doors.
