Customer Question

I'm trying to fit panelled doors to an integrated fridge freezer. Does the door need to be hinged to the frame or should the door meerly slide on the fittings attached to the panel and the fridge?

Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
I just got to site let me see if I can find instructions, did you buy panels from them also or are they aftermarket? thanks Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
well nothing there on how to install panels. I'm afraid I cant help you. did the panels come with instructions? I know you have to attach the side and bottom and top trim pieces by screwing them into side of doors but you need to be careful to line them up right. can you remove doors and lay the panels on top and then place trim on and screw them in while lined up ? that would be my suggestion. thats all I can do to help. thanks Bryan
