To understand the function of door cams, see Door Cam Operation.

The replacement of the upper door hinge cam is a two-person job.

To replace a door hinge cam, the door has to be removed from the unit.

  1. Empty the door of its contents and remove the door shelves.
  2. Mark the outline of the upper hinge on the upper edge of the door. This is so that when the door is put back on, door adjustment will be close to what it was before.
  3. Support the bottom of the door with a saw horse/ladder or other device from the bottom.
  4. Remove all of the screws holding the upper hinge to the door. Hold the door while doing this so it does not fall.
  5. Separate the door from the hinge and then carefully lift the door off of the lower hinge.
  6. Set the door down on a protective surface.
  7. With a Phillips screwdriver, replace the door cam on the door and hinge cam on the lower cabinet hinge.
  8. Reverse the process to install the door.
