Lower Door Closing Cam
Fix Number FIX11739042
Manufacturer Part Number WP2182179The lower door closing cam raises the door to keep it from touching the refrigerator liner when the door is closed. It fits both the left and right side of the refrigerator door. The most common reasons for replacing this part are the fridge door slips down when opened, the door does not open smoothly, or does not close by itself. This original part is made of durable black plastic, is approximately 1.1 inches by 1.5 inches, and is sold individually. To effectively install this part, you will need a 5/16 nut driver and a small flat blade screwdriver. Before you begin, disconnect the power and the water supply. We suggest lubricating this part before installing. To make the repair, remove the top hinge cover, then the top hinge support. Lift the door from the bottom support and remove the old door cams. Replace the cams and put the door back on the lower hinge support. Replace the top hinge support and that completes the repair.
