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?
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!
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!

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
