Refrigerator upper and lower door cams on the door bottom were worn out. Door swings open without the usual stop.
Remove upper door hinge and lift door up and out of bottom hinge. Pry out both lower door cams if possible from the lower door. If not possible, break the lower door cam, and then grind out the plastic part of the old door cam from the refrigerator door. Install new upper and lower door cams and put some lite grease on them. Lower door onto bottom hinge and reinstall upper door hinge.

Refrigerator door would not automatically close tight
Replaced bottom hinge and cam . Had to remove door but it was easy. However, had to have the star shaped screw driver head to remove door hinges. I was just lucky that my drill set had one.

The door would not stay closed, the closing cams were completely worn out.
This is a very simple repair, by far the hardest part was emptying all of the condiments out of the door. After that was done I removed the top hinge cover and then the hinge. I lifted the door off of the refrigerator and set it on a card table so that it was off the ground. I took the worn cams off of the door and the refrigerator cabinet (one screw for each of them). I screwed the new cams into position and lubricated them with petroleum jelly. Then I put the door back in position and reattached the top hinge. It works perfectly again.

Door stayed 1/4" open. Light on, food spoiled (twice).
Replaced lower cam first. Didn't fix problem. Replaced upper cam, fixed. Very easy, watch video. But, website should have warned to check both parts. Plastic to plastic cams is a bad design.
