SOURCE: R/H door swings open too easily and hits counter behind door.

Hi LC,

Your fresh food lower door hinge cam assembly has failed and needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to replace, really... but you have to remove the FF door to get to it. <---which is VERY simple to do. But first thing first, right? You'll obviously need the replacement part on hand prior to the repair, so the part number is WR02X10779. You can see what it looks like here (you could also order it here if you don't have a local appliance parts retailer).

OK, now that you have the cam assy., Empty out all the goodies that you have stored in the FF door shelves. Then using a sturdy step stool, remove the upper hinge cover. Below the cover, you'll find three more screws, remove them (just so you know ahead of time... after you remove the last of the 3 screws, the door is no longer "attached" to the frame, so hold on to the door while removing the last one, OK?). Now all ya have to do is lean the door forward (from the top) and lift it off of the lower hinge/cam assembly.

Now that the door is off, all that's left to do is remove the old cam assy., install the new one and rebuild everything! Easy Breezy! You'll be in and out of this job within 20-30 minutes.

Oh yeah... one other thing. When you replace the door and are putting the top hinge back on, put all 3 screws in but don't tighten them yet. You'll need to "level" the door and THEN tighten them. Just lift the fridge door handle 'til the top of the door is level with the Freezer door, tighten the screws while holding the door in this position, deal? Cool.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: doors don't swing shut automatically

The GE side by side refrigerator has 2 cams on the bottom hinge that helps shut the door. If the cam wears out then the door will not close properly. One of the cams is riveted to the hinge assembly and an extra cam is shipped with it. The cam assemblies can easily be replaced by using the information on the Partselect.com website that refers to the GE TFX22R refrigerator.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Door won't stay closed

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Part 12 on this diagram is your cam. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=KSRB27FHSS02&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0593&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=REFRIGERATOR%20DOOR&documentId=O2030395&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

SOURCE: refrigerator door swings open too far; does not

Yes it is a hinge cam that broke. Can be ordered on the GE website. A no pro job to replace. A little patience and time about 30 minutes.

The refrigerator right side door swings all the way around when you open it (180 degrees). Shouldn't it stop half way? How can this be corrected?


Your frig should be properly leveled left to right and front to back when it was installed. If it is done correctly, when you open the door it should stop where-ever you stop it and it should stay there until you close it. If it swings either closed or open when you let go of the handle, it's not level. The door stop is there to keep the door from opening too far.

I have a kitchenaid refrigerator with single door on top and pull out freezer drawer on bottom. When I open the refrigerator door it will swing all the way open and hit the counter top . How do adjust it...


It sounds like your refrigerator is out of level in the direstion of your door hinge. Under the front side, in behind the louver at the bottom will be two adjusting screws. Either raise on the hinge side or lower on the non hinge side. Or both. this should get the door to the point you should be able to let it loose and the door should, from any position, shut by itself.
Hope this helps.

Is there a way to adjust the refrigerator door so it will stop at a 45 degree angle rather than swinging on back?


check the level of the fridge. If you adj.till it is level the door will stay wherever you stop it. Usually they are adjusted till the door falls shut if started so the door is not left open

How do i stop a refrigerator door from swinging open too far?


It sounds as if your fridge is leaning forward and the weight opens the door to quick and to far, try to get it level and then it will only open as far as you open it.

GE Side by Side Frig Door Flies Open to Far


Look under the front of the fridge, should be some adjustments to raise and lower the wheels or feet for leveling. Level it with a level on the top, should help keep the doors from swinging.

Hing and plug fell out and now Ice maker door stays open


It just un-snaps. Pry gently along the top or bottom edge and work it off with a plastic putty knife. Snaps pretty good and sounds like it is breaking.

KEBS208DSS6 doors wont close compleat


Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
This will often re-set range door hinges.
