The lid on my freezer wouldn't stay open so I replaced the hinges. The lid still won't stay open. Is there a right or wrong way to install the hinge? Any suggestions?
If the hinges are not holding the door up then it sounds like the door is too heavy for the hinges. It is possible that there is ice that has developed inside the door that may be causing the door to be to heavy for the hinges. You will want to pull the inner liner of the door and check for ice and if there is any then clear it out or let it thaw.
How are these hinges adjustable to keep the lid open ?
Answer Hello Carl,
I'm sorry but, there is no adjustment on these hinges.
Is the plastic piece that keeps the spring in place on the inside of the hinge assembly available separately? That's all I need.
Answer Jon, the manufacturer does not offer parts to the hinge assembly separately. You will need to order the hinge, part number 297313200. Thanks!
How do I get the hinge to bend for the lid?
Answer Hello Cranston. Mount the hinge 297313200 to the lid assembly, then place the lid on the unit in the open position and install the screws on the unit. Close the lid and adjust the hinge. Hope this helps.
