The top hinge of my NEFF built in fridge has broken. I've got new hinges, but can't see how to remove the hinges without taking the fridge out - i.e big job. Can anybody advise please ? Also the hinge kit I've got only has two hinges, the appliance has three. Do I need to replace all hinges ?

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
The door comes off a set of hinges. You may have to remove the front fascia at the top, and access the screws holding the top hinge on to the frame. Unscrew these and remove the door by lifting off the bottom hinge. With the door off you will be able to remove the screws holding the bottom hinge. If you are lucky, they will reverse fit to the other side as they are. If not, use what was the top hinge as the new bottom hinge, fit the door and use the bottom hinge as the new top hinge.
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.
Yep, sounds like the hinges/springs have been overloaded.
Dont know if it's a Neff problem in particular, but I had a Neff oven with exactly the same problem - it was already installed when I bought my house.
Spoke to Neff who advised this ocours if heavy things like a roasting tray with a heavy bird / joint in it is rested on the door whilst it's open.
Only cure is new spring/hinge units which are not cheap !
The top hinge of my Neff integrated fridge freezer has broken so the door won't open and shut properly. As a temporary repair I intend to swop the hinges around -replacing the top hinge with the middle one but can't see how to remove the hinges. Can anyone help?
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.
