CustomerDaniel from Drums PA

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 .

CustomerRoland from Albuquerque NM

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.

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!

Closure bearing broke

My hubby and I simply lifted the door up and out of the hinges and while, balancing the door on a footstool, took off what was left of the old closure bearing, stuck the new one up inside the hole and placed the door back down on the fitting. VERY EASY!
