Fresh food section door made a click noise on closing

Since the cam riser was obviously broken I obtained a replacement.
It also broke. The door hinge cam needed to be replaced also.
To repair Remove the hinge cover using a #2 phillips driver. Than remove the Hinge using an 8mm socket. Turn the door upside down and, using an 8mm socket remoge the cam riser and the door hinge cam.
Replace in reverse order.
Be sure to inspect all parts and order all required.

Customerglen from broadway, NJ

Fridge door would not stay closed,

took off the top hinge (one screw on the cover, and two bolts holding the hinge), lifted the door off the bottom hinge, saw that the riser cam had disintegrated. ordered the cam and the shim (since it looked like the shim was also going bad).
when the parts arrived, I took the top hinge off again, took the bracket holding the shim and cam off the bottom of the door (two bolts), removed the broken riser cam. Attached the shims and the cam to the bottom of the door with the bracket, replaced the door on the bottom hinge, replaced the top hinge, and the door closed correctly.

after three days, there was no condensation in the fridge, we decided that the gaskets did not need to be replaced.

Door was squeaky and would no close

I layed several small 2x4 blocks on the floor, then raised the door up from the hinge, using the small pry bar. Then removed the the screws for the hinge. Removed the screws holding the door stop and removed the door cam. Then, I replaced the door closing cam. Replaced the hinge and screws. I Lowered the door on to the hinge and applied a little lubricant to the cam and job complete.
