Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridgidaire side by side door popping follow up : will this work?

Hi, not sure why my posts are getting all mixed up and separated.

Anyway, thanks for your reply. Maybe you saw my original post with all the info. However, Your post is completely confusing to me, I don't get what you are saying. The attachments to the door are correct, a three hole metal 'hinge' at top, and an 'L' shaped bracket connector/hinge at bottom.

The top one does have a second set of holes for slightly moving placement on the top of the door, but I can tell they are likely in the same spot/holes that they have always been.

My problem is door noise, and I've been convinced by more than one person that the problem is at the bottom of the fridge door, even though sound is very loud at top of door when opened and then when closed.

Well, seems to be what someone here called a 'CAM' but what another site with schematics, and parts diagrams, called a 'BEARING - HINGE". It's a cheap plastic looking part piece that seems to just fit over the metal rod at the bottom and goes into the hole of the door bottom, sort of a sleeve like thing. Then the door itself just goes on to the L bracket connection piece to the door.

Is this the CAM that someone spoke of? Would this create the noise? Is replacing it at this point likely to fix and get rid of the loud pop noise?

these are essentially my questions, if you or anyone can help at this point I'd really really appreciate it very much. Thanks.

My original post is still up in the FRIDGIDAIRE FRS3R5EMB Side By Side category if referencing is needed. Again, my replies and follow ups, and questions to the original answer tech seem to be creating new posts now, and I don't know what's happening. Hopefully someone can piece together this and help me to understand if this problem is fixable with a simple added or replaced door part.
thanks, -chaz

    mine is fixed now, I am the poster for the original problem. i had to order a new top door hinge assembly thingy. It cost less than 30 bucks, more than I'd like yes, but the sound was driving me nuts more and more. Anyway, I had replaced the lower deal first , as recommended by a few, but didn't do a thing. It was the top door hinge assembly all along.

    fixed it great, no more noise

    yippee !!

Saging door

You should be able to adjust the door hinges very similar to a normal household door. You may have to unscrew the hinge and reinsert. This would definitely involve two people.

Hi, the freezer door will not stay closed. need to push the last 1/2 inch, sometimes it pops out again that 1/2 inch. nothing in freezer to stop it closing. Door need adjusting?? Greg


If the refrigerator is not properly leveled the doors will not close easily, the front side should be a little bit higher than the rear side. If that's how it is, then the issue is with the hinge lever that seems to have gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

Whirlpool In-Door-IceĀ® Ice Dispensing System

the dispenser front "pops" off by inserting a screwdriver under he dispenser front, look closely youll see 2 little slits where ot insert and twist from. as your inserting and twisting would be helpful to be pushing down on the top of the facade.(just plastic tabs holding on care full not to break. its pretty apparent after that. when re-installing Hang over the top and kinda give it a good smack down with the heel of your hand... but honestly before all that look at the wires under the door hinge make sure there are no cut wires. ( a natural pinchpoint created by the hinge mechanism)
