Remove two bolts holding bracket keeping the door mounted on top of the refrigerator, remove mounting bracket. Lift off door, invert and remove bits of old damaged bearing. Insert new bearing into holder on door at bottom an refit door on to body. Replace bracket on top of refrigerator. That's all
It's not so much the ease of the repair that matters as how quickly you got the part to me. I had tried to order the part frmo a major company who's name rhymes with Beers, but they were unable to deliver it after three weeks. It was constantly on backorder. I ordered it from you on Monday, had the part on Tuesday, and had repaired it by Tuesday night.Amazing service and turn around. You are to be congratulated.
First I removed two screws and my wife took the door our. Peplaced part and we put the door back in. Two more screws and done.
piece of cake... removed upper hinge, old bearing hinge came right out ... Installed new piece and was done in less than 5 minutes... It took longer removing all the stuff from the door shelves,then it did to fix the problem.
Thanks to everyone is thread, for the valuable info. Over-all, the whole thing was pretty easy.Removed one phillips screw holding top cover (top of door).Removed top cover (about 6" long).Removed two hex nuts (sorry, I've forgotten the size).Removed door.Removed broken (bottom) bearing-hinge.*Replaced bearing hinge.Replaced door.Replaced hex nuts.Replaced top cover.Replaced phillips screw.I wasn't sure how heavy (or rather not heavy) the door was, so I had an additional person stading by (it's not heavy). Extra person was not necessary.The only thing that made the repair annoying was when I tried removing the cracked bearing-hinge, the top splintered and the bottom half was stuck in the door. I ended up having to dig out the cracked piece with pliers & drill & tiny computer screw-driver & swearing.Moral of the story is don't crack the top off of the bearing-hing that you're trying remove.
With a screwdriver, remove the hinge cover-plate on the top of the door. This reveals the two nut-driven screws that hold th top hinge-plate: remove while children/wife/neighbor/butler/out-of-work-political consultant hold the door. Take out the screw on the Bearing plate and replace with new. (I replaced, but kept the old one. Like to replace parts that ride on each other in pairs, even if there is no noticable wear. Next, take the old Bearing-hinge from the bottom of the door that whomever is holding. Needle-Nose Pliers might be handy if your bearing-hinge is also shredded. Re-assemble being careful to place the bottom hinge into the Bearing without catching or scoring the Bearing hinge. Don't want to do this again in six monthes.While I was under there with the base/bottom plate removed, I noticed the dust and crud and vaccumed after replacing the door.
1) Removed the items from the door.2) Removed the screw from the top hinge cover.3) Removed the 2 bolts from the top hinge plate.4) Lifted the door off the bottom hinge.5) Removed the broken pieces from the bottom of the door and the lower hinge plate.6) Slid the new hinge in the hole on the bottom of the door. 7) Greased the area of friction where the hinge rotates.8) Lifted the door and guided it on the lower hinge post.9) Greased the top roataing pin.10) Installed the remainder pieces in reverse.
It was easy. I just pop the shelf into the slots
Removed top hinge. Lifted door off bottom hinge. tilted door to remove damaged part. Slid in new bearing-hinge. Re-mounted door on bottom hinge. Reinstalled top hinge. Done!
Removed cover from top bracket with phillips sd. removed bracket with socket wrench; lifted door from hinge; removed remnants of old hinge from recess, this took a while because it had broken inside, eventually I used needle nose pliers to break it up and pull it out in three parts; installed new bearing hinge; reset door, and installed bracket and cover.Easy!
