Hello,
The door on my Kitchenaid fridge (KSSP42QJS00) has started squeaking when it closes. I tried silicone spray lubricant, but it didn't really seem to help. From what I can tell, the bushing at the top of the door (part #22 / 2002903 in the repair list) seems to be missing on the fridge side but is still present on the freezer side. Two questions:
1. should I use silicone lubricant on the door, or is there something better?
2. is there a generic version of this bushing? it is fairly expensive ($25-30) on parts sites.

Thanks for any advice.
