Hinge assembly makes a snapping sound when door is opened

My refrigerator door assembly (bottom right side) makes a loud "snap" when the door is opened about half way. The white assembly "gadget"...(for lack of the real word..sorry) seems to move were it is attached to the underside of the door. So, when we open the door, SNAP..every time. Yes, it turns like its suppose to...but seems to be loose. We have tried to tighten it up...didn't fix the problem though....help us. We are SICK AND TIRED OF THE SNAP EVERY TIME WE OPEN THE DOOR...HELP.

    I have the same problem. Its a spiral bushing that snaps when the door
    is turned half way. The problem seems to be that the bushing is
    plastic, and does not fit properly into the slot it revolves through.
    The part should be made of steel., but it is not.

This is a self closer assembly. Try getting a new self closer and replacing both parts. The part on the door and hinge. 0The door must be removed to do this.

You will have to remove the hinge cover at the top. Usually just snaps down on top of hing or could have a few screws.Then remove the screws securing the hinge. Make sure you make a diagram or take a few images of how its put together (they can be a pain if you forget how). Before you do that look at the top center, and lower sides of the side you want to put the doors on, not all units are made to be reversible. If yours is there should be plastic snap in covers covering the screw holes. Remove the covers, move the door and gaskets, etc over, align properly and put plastic covers in holes on side you removed doors from.

The gasket on the right hand French door is slightly torn, so I bought a replacement gasket. It's arrived, but I have no clue how to replace the gasket.


The gasket is easy to replace. Remove bins and shelves set them aside. Next at the top right hand corner remove the door trim cover pull it straight out and set it aside. Note the tabs on the inside of the trim are fragile. Peel back the gasket at the top forward edge and bottom frward edge and you will locate a hinge. Use a small screw driver to pop these hinges out. Pull out the gasket on that side first and the whole seal comes on out of there. The hinge slides out of the old seal. Just snap yer new back in. Do on door at a time. The trim pieces for each door are different. Snap your door trim back and check for propah opening and closing of door. Then party on!

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.

Right Door is making loud popping noise


After reading these posts, I fixed my refrigerator door in less than 5 minutes. The little black plastic cam on the bottom hinge was loose. To fix it, take the hinge cover off of the top with an 8mm socket, and remove the three 8mm screws holding the top hinge on. Remove the door by lifting up off of the bottom hinge and set it aside. On the bottom hinge is a black plastic cam held on by an 8mm screw. The screw on mine was really loose. Tightening it and putting the door back on made it work like new. You probably don't have a bad cam, just a loose one.

Ice chute door


THE FACE PLATE OF THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY SHOULD HAVE A SLOT ON THE BOTTOM CORNERS. INSERT A LARGE BLADED SCREW DRIVER IN THE SLOTS AND TWIST. IT WILL SNAP AND YOU WILL THINK YOU HAVE BROKEN IT BUT IT DIDN'T. ONCE THE BOTTOM IS RELEASED, PICK UP ON THE FACE PLATE TO DISENGAGE IT FROM THE TOP OF THE ASSEMBLY. IF YOUR DOOR FELL OFF, THE CHANCES ARE THAT A PLASTIC LOOP BROKE OFF THAT THE HINGE PIN SLIDES INTO. A FIX KIT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM. BEST TO BE INSTALLED BY A FACTORY AUTHORIZED SERVICER. IT CAN BE DIFFICULT.
I HAVE INSTALLED TWO OF THEM MYSELF.
