Lower door hinge cam riser for refrigerator/freezer - this is one of the parts needed if the door won't stay closed.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
I needed to replace the door hinge, the cam riser and the door stop. The first step was to jack up the door so the hinge could be replaced. After that it was just a matter of unscrewing the 2 screws holding the hinge and the two screws holding the door stop. Reassembly was easy after the cam riser was placed on the door hinge pin and the 4 screws reattached. I did not need the door hinge shim and it has been returned for credit.

I removed the door from the fridge by taking off the screws that held the top plate on. I then removed the old broken cam from the door and the old hinge pin on the fridge and replaced them with new parts. I then put the door back on, screwed the top plate of the door into the top of the fridge, and with a few minor alignment adjustments with the freezer door, I was done.
Removed the door and installed the cam riser on the bottom of the door.
I emptied the frige door of all the goods and unsrewed 3 screws in the top of the door. I lifted the door off the shaft and installed the new parts. I set the door back down on the shaft and reattached the screws in top of door. It took longer to empty the door and restock it than it did to replace the part.
Blocked door up with wood block about 12" wide. Removed hinge and disconnected the water line for door dispenser. Replaced broken cam riser, and reassembled water line and hinge. Very easy to do.
