SOURCE: counter depth refrigerator

just to make sure , it is when the door is open to 180 degrees?

the door should have a door stop on it under the hinge.

is screws to the door then hits the hinge when it gets to about 160-170 degrees stopping from opening more

somtimes if a door is replaced this part is left off or yours maybe damaged

give me a model number i can tell you more

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.

My side by side refrigerator door swings open (somewhat out of control). It appears that the door stop is no longer working How can I fix this?


There is a self closer stop mechanism under the door between the door and the hinge, The door must be removed by removing the top hinge and lifting off the lower hinge flip the door and you will see a plastic piece which is probably broken there is also a piece on the hinge . Both should be replaced

When I open bottom or top fridge doors they swing all the way open by themselves instead of staying put partially open


Hi,
The fridge needs to be leveled better...
When the doors swing open then gravity takes over and pulls the doors open the rest of the way...
to fix this adjust the legs of the fridge so that it leans just a bit away from the hinge side and back just a bit...then the doors will swing closed by themselves...

The back legs may have to be shimmed and the front leg adjustments are usually right behind the front cover at the floor...sometimes there are screws there to adjust the back legs from the front also...

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.

Refrigerator door swings open too far; does not stop. Is this a hinge assembly that is broken? Part found in the floor.


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.

Right side door swings open without stopping.


At the bottom of the door , there is usually a steel piece which keeps the door from opening too far . Sometimes this piece gets bent or the screw holding part of it falls out , letting it move with the door . You should check the bottom of the freezer door and compare the angle and movement to the refrig door . Also , the adjustment for the door could be too hight , causing it to miss the door stop .

Refrigerator door swings wide


Refrigerator doors do open wide. They must have clearance for the crisper drawers. The unit should have a slight tilt to the rear to automatically close the door when partially opened.

Counter depth refrigerator


Do you have room to pull the fridge out from the wall, maybe just a couple inches? Pulling it out from the wall should give you more door swing without hitting the counter.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks,
Bill
