Refrigerator door would not stay closed and open periodically
1. Remove top door bracket cover and loosen 2 bolts.
2. Lift up and remove door
3. Remove lower door hinge bracket.
4. On my model, the old door cam (that was broken in pieces) was fastened form the factory with a pop-rivet. So I had to drill out the back side of the rivet to remove it.
4. Bought a 3/32" x 1" stainless steel machine screw, with washer and lock nut. Used machine screw to fasten bottom door cam to lower door hinge bracket. Fastened lower door bracket to refrigerator using original machine screws.
5. Mounted refrigerator door on bottom hinge.
6. Re-inserted top door hinge and tightened existing hinge bracket machine screws.
7. Installed top door hinge cover with original Phillips screw.

Door closes completely and has a good seal all the way around and doesn't pop open anymore.

Door cams broke. Push doors closed, freezer door need to left close.
One suggestion, maybe sell the spacers/washers with the cams. Ours were broke along with cams.
Your instruction in email & video made short work. Nice to have doors seal again

the old cam broke and I had to figure out how to close the door.
I watched the video online and if my friend would have called me a little later, it would not have taken me more than 10 minutes. A very householder friendly job that saved me the cost of a technician to come out and embarrass me. I'll try try the next job if it's just as user friendly.

Black plastic door closing cam had broken into several pieces.
Watch the video FIRST! I didn't and caused myself a little extra work. The video recommends only loosening one screw and removing the other. Follow that instruction and you won't have to figure out where all the cardboard and plastic spacers go.

Door No Closing;Door Seemed To Be Lowering When Opening.
Removed items from door shelves, removed door by using nut driver. Removed door and replace door cam and replace with new cam. Replaced door onto hinges and everything was great. Replaced items on door shelves. The entire process was less than fifteen minutes. Not bad for a seventy-five year old. [With my wife's supervision). Thanks for being so helpful with your parts and processing. "Great job"melvin c.
