CustomerPaul from Amherst MA

Lower hinge on freezer door on side-by-side broke

Removed the cover plate on top. Used a wrench and the nut driver to remove the three screws & the screw holding the grounding wire. Pulled apart the plastic coupling for the wiring to light the freezer. Then with the aid of a friend - lifted the door (with food removed from door shelves) off the hinge. This freezer had a water line which we didin't know how to disconnect so we were careful to move the door slightly away from the broken hinge, set it on a stool with one person holding the door steady while the other person installed the new hinge piece. Definitely takes two people (as suggested in the directions) to both lift and guide the door into place. Once it was in place - I reinserted the screws up top and tightened them. Then had to untighten them to get the door to line up as it should vertically - so I would suggest just lighten tighen the upper screws until the door is aligned and swinging smoothly. Then reattached ground wire and plastic coupling. Works great.

Refrigerator door would not stay closed

Just as shown on a you tube video showing the steps involved, except I did not need to drill and tap the hole in the door. Cam repair kit contained all the correct parts.Freezer door is still working fine so I did not need to repair that door.

Customerjoseph from haddon heights NJ

Refrigerator door did not seal and was out of alignment

I was quoted $212.00 by a service co. to make this repair. When I investigated online @ Part Select, they had all of the parts shown on schematics of each section of the refrigerator/freezer (side by side)with part numbers shown. It was easy to find the necessary parts.The cam kit came as a package for both doors and cost $12.00 plus shipping. Installation instructions were included.It took me an kour to make the repair. The hardest part was removing all the condiments from the shelves and remembering from which shelf they had to be returned. Net savings $200.00

Very easy

Like most have stated this is a simple job. Nut-driver and six screws (on mine). Less than ten minutes. Like someone else said the hardest part was unloading the door.

Hinges were making a popping sound and did not close properly

I followed the video instructions available on the net. Hardest part of the job was getting up off the floor after I disconnected the water line. I'm 90 years old
