Door closer cam broken

Removed door from refrigerator. Had to use pliers to pull out the broken piece in the bottom of the door. Appears to have gotten "glued" in when they blew in the insulation - was very sticky. All went well after than.

However, it seams that while there are two holes to select from when mounting the lower cam, neither one really works. When closed the cams still don't line up and the door sites just a bit higher than it should and the upper cam's riser is sitting about 1/2 way on the lower cam's. It seems this part is not designed to exactly replace the original or there is something I'm missing.

Refrigerator door wouldn't self-close

Super-easy... First, empty refrigerator door. Then, just remove the bolt that goes through the cover over the top hinge. This exposes three more small bolts. Remove these and the top hinge assembly will lift off. Lift door off. Remove cam from door and lower hinge, slip new cams on, and reassemble. The hardest part was pulling all of the junk stuff out of the refrigerator door. Who know you could accumulate so much salad dressing?

Right side door not closing freely

Purchased the closing cam (both pieces). Removed door (3 bolts under the dust shield on top of door) and replaced the plastic cam pieces. So easy a caveman could do it. I actually had my 13 year old son do it while I supervised!

Lower hinge on door, watrer filter and ice/water tray

The notches that create the closing power on the lower hinge was worn out. A few bolts at the top of the door and it was off. One nut to hold the plastic hinge and it was on. Door works perfectly now. Water filter was a breeze and the tray where the ice and water dispenser is was even easier. Parts came incredibly fast and after an order for $75 total and my repairs were done.

Refrigerator door wouldn't close automatically

I removed the three small bolts (under cosmetic cap) located on the right top hand side of the refrigerator and pulled off the door. Replaced the top and bottom cams, put back on the door, screws and cap. Door works like new and the Wife loves it.

On a side note, don't be confused when ordering the top and bottom cam as they are both on the bottom of the door.

CustomerThomas from Abington PA

Door would not close properly

First I removed the three screws on the top hing of the refrigerator door so that we could lift it off the bottom hing. Socket wrench bits for my drill made that fast and simple. I lifted the door off the bottom hing to find the door closing plastic cam to be broken in several pieces. The hardest part was getting the cylinder shape piece that had broken off the cam out from inside the door. This way we would be able to insert the new piece. Needle nose pliers are the right tool for that job since the hole is small and the plastic just frays under force from regular pliers. It took some force and patience to get that out, but once all the broken pieces were removed, reassembly was quick and easy

Fridge door friction / not swinging shut

Removed the door, laid the door on its side, and pulled the worn part from the door. Inserted the new part, reattached the door, and it works like a charm. The parts diagram online was very helpful. I ended up purchasing a part I didn't need in case an unidentified washer came with it, but I didn't need it. No big deal.

Refidge door would pop open all the time.

We thought we were in need of a new seal around the door but as my husband checked the door he found out it was a piece under the door that holds it up so the door was not sealing right when it closed. I went on line. Found this site and found my fridge. My husband viewed the pics of the parts and figured out we needed a cam. I ordered my part and could not believe it came the very next day!!! I didn't even pay for anything other then regular delivery. He took off the door and it was simple to just slip on the new part and replace and put the door back on.. Nothing much to tell here. Less then 30 minutes. Thank you so much for the quick service getting it out to us. I was about to put a child lock on the door just to keep it closed..
