I have tried fitting the door fronts to a tall AEG fridge/freezer

This answer was rated:

I have tried fitting the door fronts to a tall AEG fridge/freezer (model number SCN51810SO_WH) using the plastic sliders etc supplied and have followed the instructions to the letter. However, as the laminate doors are 22mm rather than the normal 18mm I cannot see how the units will work without fouling on the cabinet and am also worried about the door weight.
On my existing fridges and freezer, the doors have a different sort of double sprung hinge that push the door away from the unit such that the finishing doors can be fixed firmly onto the fridge and freezer door fronts.
Can these hinges (which appear to be available at £27 each from your site) be fitted to our new fridge freezer unit and is there a separate fitting kit that would enable me to fit the finishing doors to both fridge and freezer? And, presumably they would come with fitting instructions.
I am already worried that I have tapped into the side of the fridge door in fitting the slider bracket so don't want to damage the unit further.
Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries- would you kindly let me have the pnc or product code and I will have a look for you.

Don't worry about pursuing the question any further as I have managed to use the supplied sliders with some minor adaptions. Thanks anyway.
No worries.
