You will have to remove the old ones (a round punch of about 1/4" works well, then remove and replace parts (two punch up, two punch down). BE SURE you have the door supported with a block of wood under the door while doing this. It would help for two people to do it also, but not 100% necessary. Good Luck ALSO REMOVE THE LATCH THAT KEEPS THE DOOR FROM SWINGING ALL THE WAY OPEN, THAT WILL GIVE YOU BETTER ACCESS.

SOURCE: the drivers door hinge pins are loose allow the

Some local auto parts have replacement door/hinge pin-kits for Ford products. (If not order from your local Ford dealer) The pins may need heated with a torch and driven out with a long spline pin punch. You might want to get a mechanic to do this for you.

SOURCE: Need instructions on replacing drivers

  • 1. Place masking tape on the inside edges of the door, on both the inside and outside of the door. 2. Remove the door spring by using a door spring removal tool. Insert the tool into the door spring, turn the knob with a screwdriver to compress the spring, then pull out the tool. 3. Set a 5-gallon bucket under the door. This will help support the weight of the door. 4.Place a nail punch under the hinge pin, and strike it with a hammer. Repeat this until the hinge pin begins to come out of the hinge. 5.Place the end of a flat-head screwdriver under the top of the hinge pin, then strike the screwdriver with the hammer to force the hinge pin out of the hinge. 6. Place the bushing on top of the new door hinge pin, and tap it into place with the hammer. 7. Insert the new hinge pin into the hinge. Tap on the hinge pin with the hammer and nail punch to force the pin into the hinge. 8. Insert the hinge spring back into the door, and release the tension on the spring removal tool. 9. Spray the door hinge with a lubricating spray or apply grease.

    I know there are a few directions but it is fairly easy to do. If you have access to an air hammer and a compressor you can use this in place of a manual hammer to make the process a bit easier.

    Hope this helps.

    SOURCE: waterco sk108 skimmer hinge pins?

    Check out this web page...

    Not 100% sure they will fit - but documentation that I have seen on other websites states that they have changed the design but it will fit a S75.

    We have had one snap today. I've referred to the waterco spareparts document for the part number - they refer to it as a Wier Door Clip see below website

    How to change door opening to other side

    Hi Eleanor,
    Without a specific model number I can only give general information, but, Kenmore fridges are all about the same, so here we go. Take a close look at your unit. You should observe several small plugs inserted on the side of the doors that don't have the hinges currently mounted. These inserts cover threaded holes that are used to mount the hardware for the hinges. If your fridge has two doors one above the other. remove the top hinge hardware, lift the door up off of the bottom hinge pin. then remove the bottom hardware on the top door. Typically the mounting screws are either phillips head or 1/4" hex head machine screws. You should now see that there is now a threaded hole in the same position on that side as the plug in caps on the other side. remove the caps from the one side and insert them in their respective holes on the other side. the door hinges will attach to the now exposed holes on the side that the plugs were removed from. But not yet. First remove the top hinge hardware on the bottom door, lift the bottom door off of the bottom hinge, and then remove the bottom door hardware relocating the bottom hardware to the other side. Install the bottom door onto the hinge pin of the bottom door hinge. Close the door then install the top hinge on the bottom door. Next install the bottom hinge and hardware for the top door, set the top door on the installed hinge, close the door add install the top door top hinge and hardware next. Same with the door handles. All of this info applies to the doors and the fridge itself.

    Why wright pneumatic door closer v150 slams closed

    Adjust the speed. Adjudsting screw in the end of it (on the door edn). Tun it in to slow down, out to speed up. Should only need 1 or 2 turns. If still not adjusting, replace the unit.

    The door does not close on its own

    You might want to check the bottom of the door and see if its dragging and make adjustments if it is. Also there are plastic cams at the door hinge pin area that are supposed to help the door close. They get worn and may need to be replaced. You can lift the door off of the hinge pins and inspect them. hope this helps and good luck.

    How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?

    I have done a 100 of these.

    The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
    There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
    when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
    Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
    Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

    Here is a youtube video to help you.
    Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

    How do you adjust hinge pin hinges? I want the door to close faster.

    the only hinge that can be ajusted via the pin is a loose pin hinge where the pin can be taken out to remove the door. It canot be ajusted to make the door close quicker. You can put a door closer on the door/frame but this will make the door close a lot quicker.
    Perco make a closer thats is a right bas!!ed to fit but works well

    Top of refrigerator just inside the fridge door has condensate collecting and eventually dripping onto the floor. I "inherited" this fridge from previous tenant who SWEARS that it is was caused by a...

    If the door pops open after you close it, or the door is hard to push closed, the door closing mechanism has probably failed. Make sure you check for the obvious things, such as something sticking out of one of the shelves or orange juice cans rolling around the door shelf area causing the door to bounce back open when the door is slammed.

    If you notice any unusual sounds when the door is opening and closing, such as a clicking or grinding sound, your door closer is probably worn.

    There are three common types of door closers used in domestic refrigerators and freezers. We list here all three, along with how to access each component in order to change it.

    The most common door closers used today are small plastic cams mounted at the bottom of the refrigerator and freezer doors. When you open the door, you cause the door to climb up onto the lower cam. When the door is released, the incline helps the door shut. To view a common door cam kit, <a href=" ">click here</a>. You can see how the upper and lower cams each have a hill and valley that work against each other to make the system work.

    In order to change these, remove all food in the door, and remove the upper hinge in order to take the door off. Most hinges have a plastic cover that can be removed by prying up on it to expose the upper hinge screws. Usually, the cams mount with one screw -- one on the bottom hinge and the other on the outer door panel. On some models, the lower cam is riveted onto the lower hinge, and it's easier to purchase the lower hinge complete rather than try to drill out the old rivet.

    If the cams you are replacing are for the freezer door that has a water line going through the middle of the cam, you not only have to remove the door but you must also disconnect the water line. Most water lines are fed through a channel in the door panel and clamped into place in the dispenser housing. Or, there may be a quick disconnect fitting behind the kick plate or apron on the unit. Once you've installed the new cams, you may want to put a light coating of lithium or silicone grease on the surfaces where the cams meet.

    Another type of door closer is actually part of the upper hinge assembly itself. To view this style of closer <a href=" ">click here</a>.

    In order to change this style, pop off the hinge cover, and remove the screws that retain the upper hinge. From there, pry up on the hinge and pull it through the hole in the outer door panel. If the spring is broken and will not come through the hole, remove the inner door panel. This is a big job so you might want to remove the door and lay it on a flat surface. Fold back the door gasket and remove all the screws around the perimeter of the door until you can separate the inner door from the outer door to gain access to the hinge assembly.

    A third type of door closer commonly used is one that is internally mounted to the outer door panel, and you must separate the inner and outer door panel to gain access to the closer. To view this type of closer <a href=" ">click here</a>. In this style, the hinge pin actually goes through the closer. The hinge pin has a flat spot on each side of it that meshes with the cams on the closer. To view this style of hinge pin <a href="">click here</a>. On some Sub Zero units, this closer is mounted to the lower portion of the door and removal of the inner door panel is not necessary.

    Kolpak walk-in hinge adjustment

    I have a similar problem. Mine is due to the plastic hardware in the hinge being worn down.  The temporary fix has been to disassemble the hinges and pull out the top and bottom "slanted plastic-gravity-activated thingies"  These cause the door to close from the action of gravity and the weight of the door. These plug into the hinge on the refrigerator shell and look like a 3/8" hex-key. Once you have removed those inspect them for wear.  If your problem is anything like mine, not only has the door started to rub against the floor but the spring-activated door closer seems to be out of alignment too.  This is because the plastic on the "slanted plastic-gravity-activated thingies" have worn out and in-as-such with every open and close the door has made a slow and steady journey to being closer to the floor.  While you're waiting for a Kolpak rep to get back to you or what-have-you a temporary solution is to find two small nuts of equal size and drop them into each of the holes where your s.p.g.a.t plug in.  (Be sure sure that they're small enough to get back out!  On my first try I threw in a few small washers that didn't quite fit and it took some growling and maneuvering with needle-nose pliers to get them back out.)  
    To say nothing of the two-person-job of getting the hinges and screws lined up, you can now reassemble the door and ignore the problem until the s.p.g.a.t. wear down further or your Kolpak rep finally gets back to you...whichever takes longer really (I kid..I kid -- they're alright.)
