I must say the first real test of my new door bracket worked well when I went on a 7 mile dirt washboard road outside of Silver City NM to get to the last RV resort we stayed at. No runaway pickle jars!

Anyone have a left hinged Door bracket they want to dispose of?

I'm always on the wrong side of every deal!

PM your address and I'll get it in the mail. I'll even include a copy of the instructions. You'll have to come up with the required washer but a handy guy like you will have no problem with that.

This is for an N6, N8, or in my case a 1095.

Be careful. Next time, you will need to replace the entire front of the fridge/freezer since the model has changed. Same thing happened to me.

The door on my dad's fridge door fell off last year. To hear my niece tell the story, it "almost killed her", but then, she's a teenager and may have a flair for the dramatic. He had no choice but to buy a new door, and he installed it with the retro-fit kit.

So as a bit of cheap insurance, I went ahead and bought the retro-fit kit off Amazon and put it on my fridge last month.

I consulted my dad for some details on installation, even though it was dead simple. One thing we noted was the difference in weight between his door and mine. Same fridge, just mine was manufactured more recently. My door (once removed) could be lifted easily with a few fingers on one hand. My dad said "it took two men and a boy" to lift his into place to install the new door (again, with the drama). So, perhaps this is partly the issue? Both of ours have wood panel inserts on the front, but I have no explanation as to why his door was so much heavier than mine.

Refrigerator Door Fell off

Thanks to hoppers4 for sending me the unused piece for my fridge door. The directions are very cloudy but I finally figured it out on the 2nd attempt. The support goes on the door not the fridge.

It was on here but not very clear to me.

Mod completed!

Was your original door hinge cracked? Mine was, but they were little hairline cracks that I didn't even see until I looked at the pictures I took and zoomed in.

I installed the kit on mine when I spotted the hairline cracks. I would have never seen them without very close observation.

I just did this mod today. Didn't notice any cracks in the original. Anyway, I have a left handed opening bracket if anyone's interested. PM me and I'll send it out.
