Opening the refrigerator door past half caused a loud thump.

Before removing door, remove everything from on the door including the shelves, then close the door. Using a step ladder to access the top of the door, I removed the plastic hinge cover at the top of the refrigerator door using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the screw located at the back of the cover and slide the cover forward and up to remove. This will expose the two 3/8 machine screws that hold the top hinge bracket. Remove the screws using a socket or wrench. Then lift up on the hinge bracket from the top of the door to remove it. As long as the door is closed it will remain stable with little pressure to keep from falling. Then lift the entire door from the bottom hinge assembly and lay it across an arm chair or flat elevated surface so you can access the bottom door hinge bearing. You will see a bracket screwed to the bottom of the door with two 1/4 machine screws, it is the door stop bracket and this has the door hinge bearing inserted through it. My bearing was broke in half , the first piece fell out when I removed the door and the other piece was still inserted in the door. I removed one 1/4 screw from the stop bracket and loosened the other screw to allow the bracket to swing away from cavity that holds the bearing. Using needle nose pliers I remover the broken piece of the bearing. This part is nylon or plastic and can be cut into pieces if need be to remove it. Once removed, I cleaned the cavity, reinstalled the stop bracket assembly then inserted the new bearing. Gently align the door to the bottom bracket and set it in place, a second set of eyes may help. Once the door has been seated and in the closed position replace door bracket and the two 3/8 screws at the top of the door, check the alignment before you tighten. Check door operation! Then tighten the screws and replace the plastic cover by pressing down on the cover and sliding it back to align the Philips screw to be replaced .

Door had a "hitch" which made a sound when the door was opened.

I emptied the door of food, removed the top hinge by removing two screws. I then lifted the door off the lower hinge. The teflon hinge was just sitting in the bottom bearing. I removed the broken one and replaced it with the new bearing hinge. I didn't need the door stop. I then put the door back on the bottom bearing hinge and returned the top hinge. After replacing the food, the job was done and the "catch" and noise were gone! Success!

The bearing broke.

The door was removed, and the piece of the old bearing was pulled out. The new piece was inserted, and the door was, once again, attached to the refrigerator.

Broken cam on lower refrigerator door hinge

watched the video, ordered the part and handed it to my husband. He quickly removed the hinge cover and took it apart--the lower door bearing was tightened with glue which made it difficult but once that was out of the way, it was remove, assemble and back in business. Thanks for making it "do-able". C and D in New Mexico.

Installation was a snap

I cleaned out the refrig door, unbolted it from the top and removed the door. Then I replaced the broken plastic parts, reinstalled the door and bolted it back up. Very simple, very easy!

Door make a horrible clunking noise everytime it was opened

Exposed and removed the screws at the top of the door. Removed and replaced the bearing and plate on the bottom of door and put it back together. Honestly, this is the easiest repair I ever made. The biggest chore was removing the contents of the door before taking the door off. Also was working alone, an extra pair of hands to hold the door would have been helpful but not necessary.
Be prepared to never hear that horrible clunk again!

I started hearing a loud clunking sound when I would close my refrigerator door and then eventually it stopped closing when I pushed it so I had to push it all the way closed. I searched the web site and found the parts I needed then watched a video on how to do the repair.

When my parts arrived I took a screwdriver and removed the hinge cover on the top of the refrigerator door. I then took a 3/8 drive ratchet and a 3/8 socket and removed the 2 screws on top of the fridge that hold the door hinge on( be sure to empty your door before you take the bolts out). I lifted the door out and layed it in the floor and upon inspection I found that the hinge bearing that fits inside the bottom of the door was completely broken off. I had to take a flat screwdriver and dig it out enough to grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it out. I inserted the new bearing and made sure it was all the way in then applied some petroleum jelly around it and the door closing cam. My door closing cam was still good so I didn't have to replace it. I lifted the door and placed it back in the hole on the bottom, closed the door, reinstalled the hinge on top, adjusted the door, tightened the bolts and reinstalled the hinge cover. Piece of cake thanks to the video on the web site!!! I know from now on where to go for parts I need for any of my appliances. Thanks !!!!!

Lower plastic bearings on door started to break off and not allowed to let the door close on its own.

I watched the video on line after identifying the proper parts I needed. When the parts arrived I followed the easy instructions I had watched and proceeded to turn off the unit and remove the items and shelves from the door and then removed the cover plate and two screws from the bracket holding the door in position. Laying the door on a blanket I was able to quickly remove the broken part and insert the new plastic bearing in place. I then removed the plastic part on the lower bracket and installed the new piece. The door was easily put back on the refrigerator and was aligned perfectly. Putting shelves and items back in place was still less then the fifteen minutes time.
