This is an easy fix, simply remove and replace. What I was impressed with is that a how to video was provided along with my part. I wish all manufactures would offer this, the video was easy to understand and you had a good view of the operation. Thanks, a job well done.

The hard part of the repair was getting the wife to empty the refrigerator door shelves. Once that was done simply removed the three screws on the door on the top of the door removed the bottom cam located on the bottom inside of the door. One of the simplest repairs I've ever done. Watching the you-tube video was a great help.

At first I went to a local part supplier and they didn't have it in stock but could order it for me for $55.00 plus $10.00 to ship it. I told them I would have to think about it. I went home and got on the computer and found your web site and was I shocked when I saw the same part listed for $6.98 and $7.00 to ship it. You guys saved me $50.00. The part arrived in two day and took 5 min. to install. I now have light in my refrigerator. Thank you.

Used the suggested problem list here to narrow down that the repair was most likely the run capacitor. Poped the new one in and I now have better control of my compartment ranges. I have a temperature gauge in each compartment. Check them every opening of the doors.

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.

Been fighting this for over a year. Sometimes the fridge and freezer would heat up past the point it should come on. Had to slide the fridge temp control back and forth until the unit came on. Researched the problem determined the thermostat to be the issue. Got the part, finally found the time, then took the top tray out, popped off the escutcheon, unplug some wire and took out the control shuttle. Removed the old and replace with the new thermostat. Re-installed everything, plugged in it in and BAM. It's working. Now just fine tuning the slides to desired temps. THANKS PARTSELECT.

Refrigerator Door Wouldn't Stay Closed

This is for the refrigerator, not the freezer door which is more complicated. First empty the refrigerator door of food and removed the shelves. Remove the hinge cover on the top hinge by removing one bolt. Then, holding the door, remove the top hinge by removing the three bolts in the bracket (not the bolt in the recessed hole). Lift the door off the lower hinge and lay the door on its edge on the floor. Pry the old Door Cam out of the hole in the door with a knife (my Door Cam was ground completely flat). Insert the new Door Cam. Remove the old Lower Door Cam from the lower hinge and insert the new Lower Door Cam. Pick up the door and lower the door onto the lower hinge ensuring the lower hinge pin inserts into the hole in the Door Cam on the door. Reinstall the upper hinge and insert bolts without tightening. Align door and then tighten hinge bolts. Reattach top hinge cover and tighten the single bolt. Test the door to ensure it closes and stays closed. I had to remove the door a second time to rotate the Door Cam slightly to ensure cams were better engaged (tongue in groove style) when the door was closed. Reinstall the shelves and load the door with food.

After our four year old refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed as a do it yourself kinda gal I found this website that assisted me in an easy and inexpensive fix. The "plastic" yes, "plastic" piece on the bottom of the door was worn down to nothing. My only suggestion is to call in your order, the customer service folks will help you order the right cam for your model. The next thing is to change both cams if you have a side by side. We changed the fridge side which fixed the problem, then realized the cam on the freezer needed to be changed to make it level. Great customer service!

Unplugged it for a day listened to the ice melting on the inside and plug it in again. Decreased the temperature settings and it now seems to work fine. I will save the part in case I ever need it in the future.
