Can you explain the procedure in replacing the lower hinge to an AEG integrated fridge door? I have just received the replacement from AEG, part no: XXXXXXXXXX Many thanks Russell XXXXX
The job is not as straightforward as you indicated! I have unscrewed the lower brackets from the (wooden) door but the upper bracket screws are hidden by the plastic door. Therefore the wooden door is held to the plastic door by some other means.
There are two nuts on top of the inner plastic door which may need to be detached before the outer wooden door can be removed - is this likely?
Otherwise I am not sure how to proceed.
I agree it should be straightforward but it is not!
I now realise that the decor (wooden) door is hanging on to the inner (plastic) door and secured with the nuts. However, removing the nuts has exposed the next problem which is that the decor door cannot be lifted free of the threaded parts because of the lintel(?) surrounding the fridge unit. This is secured to the fridge frame by "hidden" screws which are almost impossible to undo as they are only 4 inches from the ceiling.
There has to be an easier way. I had the upper hinge replaced by "Respond Services" some 6 months ago and they did not remove the decor door to do this. They charged an arm and a leg which is why I have come to you guys!
Sorry, I will have to abandon the job until I can get back to it later on Sunday.
Can I use my iPad to send photos? I noted that the toolbar on this panel was absent on the iPad so am not sure how to get the iPad photos attached to the message.
Am disappointed that have reached an impasse but will try again on Sunday.
Cheers XXXXX XXXXX
Sorry to say that I have now given up on this job. I am unable to send photos and I cannot move the unit from its cabinet.
I will obtain professional help and finish the job later.
