Door would not auto close

I removed the screws on the upper hinge and removed the door. I removed the lower cam in about 2 minutes and had it replaced. The upper cam was a tight fit in the door and I resorted to vise-grips to remove it. Total time to replace cams and put the door back on was 30 minutes. This saved me $100.
Thanks

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.

CustomerJay from Oconomowoc, WI

Refrigerator door fails to close on its own like it is designed to.

The design of this refrigerator door (it's a side-by-side) is somewhat unbelievable. The door is designed to hold things, yet when you do the weight of the door wears out the lower door cams. The cams are designed to "complete the door closing", i.e. when you gently push on the door the cam mechanism takes over. When the cams wear, the door fails to close. Note to others - you may mistakenly think that the failure of the door to close is related to the seal; it is not.

The repair is quite easy; remove the upper cover, using a not driver (socket), then remove the upper door bracket. Make sure you hold the door or have someone else hold it. After the fasteners are removed gently lift up on the door and remove it from the lower cam assembly. You will see two plastic cam pieces; one on the lower bracket and one on the door. Both need to be changed to effectively "renew" the door closing mechanism. Once the cams are replaced the door can be reassembled to the refrigerator.

Worn down upper and lower cam

Took off refrigerator door from top hinge and lifted off. A little difficulty getting worn out parts off (needed dremel to drill out worn plastic); replaced with new parts, the screw head holding on the part was starting to be worn as well but still worked. If I hadn't got to this repair soon the bottom of the door aluminum would have total worn out as it is, it has a deep groove but not noticeable. The new cams also force the door closed tight instead of slightly ajar at times.
