TRG18ML Amana refrigerator bent hinge problem

4 posts in this topic

Hi group, my girl's piece of crap refrigerator Amana TRG18ML seems to have a bent hinge from her roommates. This refrigerator seams to be old and I can't buy new hinges. I replaced the seal and didn't realize before I did it that the hinges were the actual problem.

 

I can't find information on what to check or how to adjust hinges and I have to do this ASAP If anyone has a tip I'd appreciate it this is a model with the freezer above the refrigerator about 18-20 cubic inches is my guess.

 

The door open left to right so the hinges are on the right side if I face the refrigerator.

 

thanks Dave

Is the door sagging? Top mount? If it's a top mount I would just use an adjustable wrench to bend it back with the bracket in place and the door off. Maybe throw 2-3 Teflon washers on the hinge before replacing the door.

yeah, washers are your friend in this situation. middle hinge gets the most stress in a top mount.
