    Dunno what model, except it isn't the N180. Under the counter type fridge with 'icebox' compartment straight across the top.

    The door on it seems to have 'dropped' and now for some reason doesn't shut well.

    It is RH hinged and so one has now always to encourage the bottom LH corner of the door with the sole of ones foot, in order to get it to close to and 'click' on the catch at the top of the door. As far as we both know, the door hasn't been forced shut at any time - neither of us is daft enough to do that on any appliance in the house, the caravan before or in this M/H.

    However, it being a nice modern appliance, the hinges aren't particularly evident and from what can be seen (or felt at the bottom) there isn't anything really obvious in the way of adjustment.

    Any ideas please?

    Hi the bottom hinge pin may be loose or the plastic spacer worn-- should be about 3mm spacer between the door bottom and the chromed steel plate the door sits on -- same as the top one :thumb:you can get the door off without taking fridge out by inserting a screwdriver in between the door and top plate - carefully- they sometimes come with a spare insert/spacer in the opposite side - or it could just be a case of tightening the bottom pin that the door sits on - If you cannot understand what/ how I am saying you can remove the door by getting at the plate / pin but you have to take the fridge out

    Thanks Terry, will let you know how that goes!

    They don't last very well if it's worn that badly in under 11 months, so I wouldn't have thought it could be wear, must just need adjustment having worked itself loose or summat. Need to get onto it though in case they decide there's only 12 months on that bit or summat! LOL
