is this one a with a top freezer lower fridge?
as I suspect
the freezer is on the bottom
ok thats fine.
lets deal with the fridge section first
do you see where the hinges attach to the chassis?
we are alright with the fridge- we have mastered that its the bottom freezer bracket that we cannot re attach- there are two parts and the screw holes are not aligned
look on the other edges for small plastic grommets do you see them?
you should also see them on the top and bottoms of the doors
there are no plastic grommets - the hinge bracket and the screw plate which sits behind the hinge bracket does not line up in the groove provided- when we dismantled it from the other side the rear plate just fell off so we cannot tell which way it was previously attached
Hi we have a hotpoint STF187WG.
I cannot get the bottom door hinge to transfer to the other side for reverse opening.
When I removed the bracket/hinge piece a plate fell off the back and I cannot get it to line up with the hinge or holes to re-attach on other side!!!
the only way I can fit it is vertical but this stops the plastic cover from fitting flush!!
can you help?????
you cannot reverse the pin itself, you have to move the whole bracket.
there are 6 dedicated holes for the screw plate and the hinge bracket to fit on to. The plate is for the anti tamper screws to bite into but I cannot get the holes to line up!!
The plate has to sit behind the hinge to allow the screws to attach. This can only be done with the plate in a vertical position as far as I can see, but the plate then protrudes above the plastic cover and doesn't fit flush!! I cant see what i'm doing wrong!!!
the plate should sit flush on the surface of the fridge in a horizontal position but it wont line up with the holes that way!
the hinge bracket fits ok, its the plate that doesn't!
i'm totally at a loss I cannot get it flush at all!!!!!
there is no slot!!
I give up Dan!!!
I don't understand how it fitted on its original side!!
Because I couldn't see the plate when taking the hinge off I didn't realise it was there until it fell on the floor!!
I just cant fathom it and cant even put it back on the original side!!!
