Open Question

New Integral fridge door fitted with different type hinges.

I have just replaced my Bosch integral fridge with a Hotpoint. I fitted the facia to the door front so that it matches the rest of the kitchen but now the fridge door wont open fully as the facia catches on the cupboard next to it. I then realised that the hinges on the new fridge are different in design. The Bosch ones swing out as they open to offer some clearance.I believe this is called a " cabinet hinge" whereas the ones fitted on this new fridge are pivot hinges. Is there anyting I can do to my new fridge to fix this problem?

SOURCE: Suddenly our GE side-by-side fridge door doesn't shut

Check the bottom of the freezer door at the hinge to see how it is suppose to look and work, assuming the freezer door still works right. Then look at the ref. door and compare.

Sounds like something is broken or damaged. Usually there is a white tefflon washer which is beveled to allow the weight of the door to help it close. Check with an appliance parts store, you may be able to buy just the washer or the whole hinge assembly may come in a package.

SOURCE: fitting an integrated fridge freezer!

Hi Gareth. I fitted a door to my Hotpoint hsz2321L today. I used self tapping screws through the brackets into the fridge door sides. Looking at the old fridge that came out showed that this was the method used previously. No seal is broken and so the fridge is working perfectly. I do have an issue re-fitting the door onto the new fridge though. The pivot hinge on my fridge doesnt give enough clearance and so it catches on the unit at the side of it. The old fridge (a Bosch) cad cabinet hinges that would sort of concertina out to give clearence. Anyway, good luck.

How do you remove the front facia door of a Teknik integral dishwasher


I have just replaced the facia on mine. It is a TKD795/4 so I would imagine yours would be very similar. Around the inside of the door are 10 starhead screws; 4 along the top and 3 down each side. On mine it is the 2 end screws along the top and the 2 middle screws down the sides that hold the facia on. It is best to remove one screw at a time to establish which ones hold the facia on and which hold the door together. The short screws hold the door together and should be replaced and left in place. It is the longer screws that hold the facia on; these only need to be undone enough to release the facia panel. Once you have undone the relevant screws, the facia will lift up enabling you to release the 2 clips at the bottom. Replacement is reverse of removal. Hope this helps.

Luckily the hotpoint helpdesk admitted that the instructions for hanging the kitchen doors does not come as part of the standard instructions. There should be a seperate piece of paper with these instructions.

After some to'ing and fro'ing they managed to email me the required diagram.

Bosch Dishwasher SGS43E02 Exxcel Control/Display Facia Panel


The panel is replaceable by removing the #20 torx screws inside the door. Once removed the metal outer door cover will slide down and the plastic top housing less switch panel can be unclipped from two locking tabs on either side. You can order via BOSCH service center, check to see if it is warrantied before removing
