Hi, I have a Bosch KIM3040 fridge freezer. I have fitted new hinges cos old ones broke. Now after a couple of months the top door is sagging, just a millimetre or so. But its wood facing is rubbing on the wood facing of the bottom door.

Hi , I am Tech Michael an expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem

, the quicker You can adjust that, its likley that the screws weren't tight enough,

You need to make them pretty tight.

What you need to do is loosen the top hinge, then either prop the door on something to hold it where it needs to be or have someone hold it UP while you tighten the screws. That should solve this.

I know these well lol ;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Thanks very much. Michael. That has restored the gap. I used a big screwdriver and came within an ace of stripping something, I think! I certainly didn't do that first time round.If the problem comes back what would your next step be, please.the fridge is 15 years old but the wife still wants to load the door with milk etc. i have told her not to. What would you advise.Many thanks for your help. marvellously quick and simple.
