RF265AB - Spring from Vertical Hinge Fell Out

There's a vertical flap or hinge on the left-side door that's supposed to slide into a track inside the fridge. Yesterday I found a small spring inside the fridge and the flap no longer resets itself to fit into the slot, it has to be manually positioned. I can't for the life of me figure out how the spring goes back onto the hinge and I can't find any drawings or videos suggesting how to repair it. Does anyone have ideas for how to get it back in, or a drawing for the proper positioning of the spring? Thanks, Dan

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: Hotpoint FFA70 - Freezer door will not close properly.

The rear panel can be removed,i have done it.I removed the 4 hex head screws from the top & bottom of the panel,and firmly pulled it forward.The reason i say pulled firmly is that when panel came out the back of the freezer was solid with ice.I have defrosted the freezer,dried any water from the unit and replaced the panel.Fingers crossed,so far,so good.In my case this build up of ice was definately the reason the drawers were not sitting in the correct position,as it caused the rear panel to 'bulge' out.Hope this helps.....

SOURCE: I was trying to clean

I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

SOURCE: DCS 30 inch oven door fell off

First thing is be careful them sprins are strong and will hurt your fingers bad if not careful. That said place both hinges in 1/3 open position they should stop there. if not put both all the way open then slide door back on and close. supposed to only lift off in 1/3 open position but whatever works.

How to remove the oven door


On many models with the door open there is a screw on either side of the door on the inside. Each screw secures the door to the hinge. Remove the screws lift the door back to the near vertical rest position and carefully lift the door out from the hinges.

Caution the door is heavy!! The door must be in the near vertical position to have the hinge in a neutral location. There is significant spring pressure on the hinges. The door should be partial open held in a neutral position before attempting to lift up.

How to install spring on french door flapper/divider for Samsung RF266


On mine one end of the spring broke off in the hole on the door. It was on top of the hinge so it looked like a pivot pin. I found that this was the second hole for the spring. I pushed the end of the new spring up under the hinge and popped the broke piece of old spring out. Now I could see the 2 holes. You then need to put the spring into each hole. The hole on the flap also needs a white plastic sleeve if that is missing. that goes on the end of the spring and fits into the flap hole. Then the trick part is understanding how the spring works? If you put both ends of the spring in the holes and shut the flap, it now stays in position to close and be flipped open by the guide that swings it open to seal.

Good Luck.

How do i replace the side flap door on my mower


There is a rod that acts like a hinge pin. There is also a spring that keeps the flap door closed. The rod goes through both the flap and the spring at the same time. You need to hold the spring under tension while sliding the pin into both pieces at the same time. A little bit tricky, but do-able.

Hope this helps.

I need to clean between glass plate and oven door on my Zanussi electric cooker. I have drips where I've wiped the door over, also there is dust in between. Model ZBF 360W, Serial 61705615, Prod. No....


Hi,

The following worked on my zbf360x built in Zanussi.
First you need to remove the oven door. To do this open the door half way. On each hinge there are two small metal flaps. Lift both of these. Now with the door still half open pull hard on the door. You will find the hinges spring and if you release the pull now it will just spring back. When the hinges spring give an extra hard pull on one side and then the other each hinge should pop out.
Once you have the door off just remove the small screws on the bottom of the door to allow it to hinge open and clean the inside glass.

Hope this helps,

Kleenmaid Stainless Steel oven door will not close properly.


The door hinge is probaly broken or could just be the spring. Open the door to the 45 degree position (halfway) and pull on the door. It should come off the hinge assembly. Slide out the oven a little to access the screws for the hinge to see what is broken or wore out.

Dishwasher ''soft drop door'' mechanism came apart - door now drops


I had a similar issue as described by mc1bean. One day my Jenair dishwasher door just fell down. The right side spring was fine. The left side spring was still hooked into the door hinge but the cable was laying on the floor in 2 pieces. Over time it wore down and broke. I ordered just the soft drop cable. Now I could not find any installation instructions how to install the soft drop cable. After a few tries I think I got it right. Here are the instructions for hooking up the right side spring with the cable. The spring has to be hooked into the door hinge at the notch closer to the door. The end of the cable with the hook has to be hooked into the other side of the spring. The cable should lead from the bottom around the pulley up to the door hinge again. Now the other end of the cable has to be hung into the door hinge on the notch further away from the door. There is some slack, but it is not quite enough for the cable to get over the pulley when in rest position and undo itself.
I hope this helps others who have the same issue.
