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

Refrigerator door fell off

I watched the how-to video on your website first and it made the job so much easier. Just remove the upper hinge, lift the door off, and replace the cam bushings on the bottom hinge. Put it back together in reverse order and your done! Thanks for having such an informative website! It saved me from buying a new appliance.

Popping noise when opening and closing door.

The parts were delivered promptly. I ordered the kit assembly because I didn't know which part was the problem. Reading the remarks from other people's symptoms and solutions made the process much easier. I replaced both the upper and lower cams. Lubricated the cams and reinstalled the door.. Problem solved!!!!

Broken bottom door hinge, clunked when opened

I am a single female so the hardest part was lifting the door off and then trying to get it back on the hinge. I used the same bolts that were on the door so putting the new parts on was the easiest part. The slowest part was finding the right socket for the bolts and unscrewing the originals. Beats hiring a repair man.

Fridge door wouldn't close by itself

I removed the door (three screws on top). Flipped the door upside down, removed the cams, and replaced with the new ones and replaced the door. Now the door closes great. The only problem is that the door sort of "clunks" into place when I open or close it. I am not sure that I used the right cams. The drawing on the directions was not at all clear.

Doors not closing without a serious push.

Replaced the refrigerator and removed doors to put the old unit in the basement as an overflow fridge. Noticed the cams broken/worn/missing on bottom door hinges. Ordered parts. When parts arrived, installed them and fridge back in operation. Parts kit had screws with slightly different sized heads, and if you used the wrong ones to mount the cams, there would be a clearance problem. There were no instructions with the parts to explain this. There also were a couple of plastic parts in the kit that were not used - no explanation given.

Door was not closing correctly

Taking the door off was easy with a nut driver. The new parts were a little different than the original. The new part required a hole for the screw to secure the cam from turning, and my refrigerator did not have any holes, so I had to drill holes to adapt the new part. otherwise it would have been very easy. I didn;t install the shelf support stud yet, as I am trying to find out how to get the old broken one off.
