Thank you Wayne,


That will not work.


The fixing of the door is by a pin located at the main body of the refrigerator which sticks into a hole at the bottom of the door. This hole is broken out and part of it is missing. Too many little pieces. Do you have more suggestions?

RV Mechanic: Wayne, RV Mechanic replied 9 years ago

HI Thank you for that

Another thing to try is
glue in a Brass,aluminum cup/pipe, glue to the out side of it
I n the mean time I will look other places for a door,
Is it the door socket that is broken or socket on bottom of fridge
let me know
