Broken cam riser on door. New draw rail.

The repair was simple. I removed the screws to the door hinge at the top of the refrigerator and lifted the door off. I removed the door support attached to the base of the refrigerator and replace it with the new support held on by two screws. I put the door back on, aligned it, and replaced the screws on top. Total time: 7 minutes. Works like a charm. To all at parts select, you have a great site with easy to identify parts diagrams. Replacing the side rail to the draw took 45 seconds with two simple screws.

Uneven fridge door that wouldn't stay closed

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.

CustomerANTHONY from MONROE CT

Refrigerator door made noise when opening. Door did not close automatically. Black plastic pieces were on the floor.

I learned from previous published repair stories. I was able to make the repair without taking the door off. I first took the food and beverages off the door to reduce weight. Next, I supported the bottom of the door with a piece of 2x4 wood and shims to take the weight when I removed the hinge. I only needed a socket set to remove the old hinge and install the new one. I am glad that the hinge kit came with both the hinge and mating cam because both parts were broken. I also bought the shims because pieces from the old parts were broken on the floor. The job went easy and the door closes perfectly now.
