Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Right hand door (refrigerator section)swings open without resistance
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!
