Question about Hoover HCA330FFK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

Hinge/bracket Hi The hinge or bracket which is inbetween the fridge (at top) door and freezer (at the Bottom) door has broken. can I get another one. My fridge is Hoover Contour and is approx 12 years old. The fridge is in really good condition and we have never had any problems with it, and it is such a shame to have to buy another fridge because of a broken hinge.

SOURCE: Ice dispenser door hinge bracket broken

Hi patsyb,
I under stand your frustration.

I see this everyday.

Many people call service for problems with their ice maker or fridge icing up
and most of the time it is related to that door you are referring too!
This door must be perfectly aligned and sealed!!!!!!!!

Even a tiny bit off that you can not see with your naked eye and icing problems begin.
It will allow air to seep in from outside which will result in ice forming every place that no one wants and or needs it to be!

We have people calling all day in service with ice forming problems related to the ice maker on all brads of side by sides and the service tech some times comes out 2 or three times ordering and changing parts till he finds the correct one , OR the whole door unit is replaced as they told you about!

If you drill wholes and hang it with wires as you spoke of, you will have so many problems you will wish you did change the whole part!
Now another point is the question?

1. How old is the fridge

2. How much do they want for the replacement of the whole inside part and labor?

patsyb,
Let me know what you do and if you have any more questions!!!!!!

Please remember to give a rating before you sign off or after you decide that I really did give you good solid,fatherly advice in your best interest!
Bless you,

Here is a report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

How do i fit the door on the other side


If you look at the opposite side of your refrigerator, you'll find one or more plastic covers which can be removed to expose mounting holes. You have to remove the doors from the current mounting position, remove the hinges and transfer them to the other side, install the doors and you're done

I need to replace my dometic dm2862 fridge door. How do I get them on the pins?


There are two (or three) screws that hold the hinge bracket on, top and bottom. You will likely have to remove the freezer door to be able to get to the top of refrig door, if so equipped. Dodnt remove the bottom bracket as it is not necessary ... work from the top down.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.

How to remove doors of a whirlpool 6vmw47 top mount fridge/freezer


Hello Hicherringto,

I understand that you would like instructions on how to remove the doors on your fridge. Most common on top mount freezers/fridges you need to start at the top and work your way down.

1. Locate the freezer hinge top part where the door swings.
2. Remove the plastic cover over the henge. (top of the box if covered)
3. Remove the screws holding the henge in place.
4. Lift up on the henge
5. Open the freezer door and lift up (the door should lift off the bottom pin)
6. Open the Fridge door and remove the screws from the hinge that the freezer door sat on
7. Remove the hinge from the fridge door by lifting up
8. Open and lift up on the fridge door
9.Reinstall in reverse

That is the easiest way to remove the doors on a top mount freezer fridge. Note that when you reinstall the doors you will have to adjust the hinges so that the seals seal properly. The hinges have enough of a grove that you use them to adjust the doors.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

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.
