Freezer side door would not close

Followed the video to replace bottom hinge assembly. The only hiccup was that the video instruction was for the fridge side door, so there wasn't step by step instruction for dealing with the electrical connection at the top of door or the water line at the bottom. However, it was simple enough to figure out. Replacement took about 20-25 mins.

Removed door with little or no difficulty. Only time consuming portion of repair was disconnection and reconnecting of water line to door. This difficulty was primary due to age of the unit. After repairing, I determined that the cam on the refrigerator was also damaged so ordered same part to replace the refrigerator side.

This was a Mother/Daughter feat. We viewed the video based on the bottom hinge assembly part that we had ordered. We did it exactly as shown and it was so easy. But while we had the door off we also had a chance to really clean the frigerator inside out. We were extremely happy that we were able to repair the frigerator oursleves and how much money we had saved by doing it. Thanks

Removed the door, removed old hinge, aligned the new one. Replaced door, then adjusted the door so that it lined up correctly and had same size gape top and bottom between the double doors. Tightened up all bolts and screws and made sure door opened and closed properly. Watched the video that was available to show how to replace hinge correctly. This helped a lot.

Broken cam on the bottom of the freezer door.

Several months ago I had to replace the hinge and cam on the refrigerator door and the repair went smoothly as pictured in the video. This time I had to replace the cam on the freezer door so I ordered the hinge assembly, which included the cam. The web site confirmed that, according to the model number of my 27 year old refrigerator, the hinge assembly would fit. The problem I had was that the top hole in the hinge was positioned too high to fit the hole in the refrigerator so I had to put the old hinge back on, even though it showed some wear. The door closes smoothly by itself now.

Noticed the fan was not working properly and went online and found out that was the cause. I immediately ordered the part that night at 8:21pm and received the motor and fan blade the next day. I flipped the refrigerator on its side and removed the 3 hex bolts, took off the fan blade first and removed the wires from the motor. I put in the new motor and then added on the new blade and put the 3 hex bolts back on and the wires. The whole process took about 30 minutes. Piece of cake.

Followed easy video instructions. Loosened the necessary bolts, etc. Replaced hinge assembly, lined up door, lubed the hinge with vasoline. Works perfectly now. May purchase another assembly as spare as it appears this may be a common repair issue.

Cam Hinge Replacement Refrigerator Door

I watched the "How To" video on the Parts Select web site twice. The video was very helpful, kind of like having someone right there with you showing you how to replace the hinge. I emptyed the door shelves, removed the top hinge hexscrews and easily lifted the door off the lower hinge, pieces of the broken cam hinge on the door fell off. I set the door on the floor in front of the sink with the handle edge on the floor. I unbolted the hinge and installed the new one. I loosened one screw on the door cam hinge and removed the other, easily replacing the broken part. Before tightening the screws I checked to make sure the hinge hole in the door was not blocked by the new cam hinge. I lifted the door and water ran out from somewhere. I tried to set the door on the lower hinge several times with no luck. I rechecked the hole, it was still clear. I tried placing the door on the refrigerator using the seal to hold it in place, that worked but I couldn't get the door to drop down onto the hinge. I played with it some more and finally got it in place, reinstalled the top hinge, mopped up the water and tried the door. It didn't self close. I adjusted the top hinge a couple of times and applied a little silicone to the hinges, it still didn't self close. I told my wife to make sure the door closes completely and reloaded the stuff into door. After a couple of days it now closes by itself like it's supposed to. In retrospect, I was alone doing the replacement and it really was an easy job but a second person to help line up the lower hinge would have helped a lot.
