SOURCE: Bottom hinge on fridge door broken

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.

SOURCE: self closing door hinges

This is not a refrigerator problem BUT, you must insert a tool like a drift punch into one of the holes on the top of the hinge and rotate it away from the door position then reposition the holding pin to prevent it from recoiling.

SOURCE: dometic rm2804 door hinges are worn and plastic

I had this problem. I reversed the decorative plastic strips, both ends of the strip have hinge pin holes, so the doors can open left or right. I put the TOP decorative plastic strip on the bottom and BOTTOM on top.

SOURCE: Do the door hinges ever wear out

I did my own search for the same problem and saw Dougs question and lack of a solution. I have the same sagging door problem and was looking for a fix.
First, when I removed the weight of the items from inside the door, the door closes properly. This means that the door is not very sturdy and cannot hold the weight of items placed on door shelving. There are NO adjustment mechanisms on the door hinges either. Bad on Amana. The GOOD NEWS is that I fixed the problem.
Take out all items from the door shelves. I removed the top hinge with the door closed to keep it from falling. I took the door off and placed it on the floor. The lower hinge has a plastic pivot over a steel pin - remove that for a moment. Place steel washers over the steel pin - about .080" or so thickness. Replace the plastic pivot. Replace the door. Add the normal weight of items back on the door shelves. The door closes perfectly. At least until the door sags again and I'll need to add another shim.

Hi. I have rust on my sr-s27fta Samsung refrigerator and I'm trying to take down the door in order to fix it. Do you know how can I do that?? Thank you


There's a plastic cover on the top door hinge. Pop it off and remove the screws that fasten it to the top of the fridge. Pull it off and don't loose the washers on the hinge pin. Lift the door up off the lower hinge pin. If it's the freezer door, do the same but take off the lower toe guard grille to expose the water tube going to the water dispenser. Separate the hose at the in line connector at the bottom of the door before you lift the door up and off the hinge pin.

My 1993 Ford F250 driver side door will not shut unless I lift up on the door from the outside. Is it the door hinges that need replacing or what?


You may have to replace the hinges but most aftermarket suppliers have pin and bushing kits to repair your existing hinges. A phone call to your auto parts supplier can probably fix you up for a fraction of the price of new hinges.

When you go about fixing the door, an old bumper jack is the best tool to use, if you have one. It will support the end of the door while you remove hinges and make adjustments.Otherwise you will need a helper. BE SURE to mark the position of the hinges before you remove them so you can put them back on easily. If you don't mark them it can take a looooong time to get them adjusted properly. Hope this helps.

How to put in a upper door hinge pin


Put a jack under the door with a piece of 2x4, as close to the middle as you can. Jack up the door, watching the hinge pin until pin is in the center of the movement range. Put a long metal rod or socket extension on the bottom of the pin and tap out with a hammer. Use same rod to remove bronze - alloy bushing. Tap new bushing in and use a 16 penny nail to check alignment of holes in hinge to bushing, raise or lower jack to center. Tap in new hinge pin. Release jack and check door for alignment on latchpin - If low, jack up door to relieve pressure, loosen upper / lower hinge bolts, raise door with jack approximately 1/8 inch, retighten bolts, remove jack and test Repeat procedure until pin strikes the center of the latch..

The doors on my 1989 Ford Mustang (hinges) sanging. What is the fix for this? (maybe hinge pins or total hing replacement). Also, door handles outside stick and dont operate correctly? Idea fix?


You may need new hinge pins, replacement of the catch pin may be helpful as well. The plastic bushing on these tend to go bad letting the door hang lower and making it difficult for the handle to open the door.

Door is not level, how do I fix?


There should be some adjustment in the door hinges. Check the hinges to make sure the pin that enters the door is not broken. If it is, dril out the pin and replace it with a small bolt, put two nuts on the bolt and use the top nut to adjust the hight of the door.
