The one hinge on the freezer of our little fridge had bust but l was happy to handle it careful and eak out its remaining life.... but into every life a husband has to set his clumping great mits and mess plans up. He has succeeded in totally breaking the other hinge off as well.

Does anyone have any idea on how much and/or where to get a fridge (under counter size with a mini freezer compartment is. The freezer is full not half width, it has to work on gas/electric/battery. I saw some prices that scared me around £500+

Many thanks
Caro

If off the shelf hinges are NOT available (they should be) I'm sure any competent workshop and make something for a darn sight less than the cost of a replacement fridge. If not come and see me and I'll sort something for you.

If like us you have a Dometic fridge, the hinges are simply holes in top and bottom of the plastic frame of the door into which a pin fits, in our case the bottom one gave way (broke) it stayed like yours with luck and careful door loading

As they technically are not hinges there is nothing to replace, you will have to buy a new door, but expect this to be a big proportion of the fridge cost based on our own experience

Or find somebody handy to glue it back together

We are still struggling on, having invested in a new fridge freezer @£1300 and bought the wrong one!!

a swivel pin is easy enough to make

the pin will not be broken if like ours, the plastic hole it fits into is the problem

a cheap and nasty fitting on a really expensive product, made worse on ours by having the hinges to the front of our MH, designed by ???

Recently replaced one on mine, got it from Magnum at Grimsby, about a tenner I think, easy enough to replace, 3 or4 screws, undo the other side first so you can take the broken one off. I think there are only 2 types.
Cheers, Dave(y)

Here you go

Its a Dometic RM7361 fridge according to the data plate photo, this is the correct hinge aalthough you may be able to find it cheaper (or not perhaps).
