Hi may I have the full model #?
Also how old is your fridge?
The fridge freezer is brand new but the cabinets are Magnet a over 10 yrs old. However Magnet advised that this model would be compatible with our cabinet. Model is I think one of 923801757/R13405
Sorry its just a tall fridge not a fridge freezer
this one should work, make sure the hinges are on correctly
also that you align the door level very important or it wont align correctly ;-)
hinges are fine as the door closes fine when not attached to the cabinet door
its good to have hep doing his and some wook blocks or even books under the door to hold it will help you do this easier.
so its the exterior that you have this problem with?
just the finished door cover?
Yes when the exterior is attached the fridge door wont close. It seems to me that as the door closes the bracket is aligned until half closed then it stops it moving any fiurther
So its all about the positioning of the fridge and also is there a best position to align the bracket eg when wide open /half open?
it is best to and easier with the door half open
in most instances as long as you have the room to work
the fit is so snug that there is little scope to adjust fridge position left right onlt back forward
the cabinets have those hinges that protrude and get in the way of lateral movement - so badly dsigned
I would be weary about that as this sounds really like the wrong set up
there should be some room
at sides of fridge?
in all the ones I have installed there was plenty of space and easy to do relatively speaking
yes at the sides so you can adjust things slightly as nothing is perfect;-)
thank you so much for your patience
yes thats what I was worried about - that even though Magnet recommended it, it doesnt actually fit
i'm wondering if one of the sliding fixings (which i assume have more margin for error?) could be attached - the one fixed to the top of the door allows no latitude at all it seems to me - so if the hinge is stoppingme getting it in the right spot it wont close properly?
Hi lol, thats why I mentioned to check the hinges ;-)
yes but I mean the cabinet hinges they stick out1-2cm each side and limit the scope to adjust position of the fridge
this may be an error by the person who sold that to you
I get the impression you are as stumped as me so I will speak to Magnet re getting an installer tp have a look
if the hinges are not the issue with being in the wrong location you will need to contact them to explain the situation.
well this sould fit
sorry for the typos
this one you are speaking of should align and attach easily,its one of the more simple designs even though its not the best design lol
I must have installed at least 40 door panels over the yearsand this really is sounding like an incorrect hardware pack or door
are you still here?
