  • Norcold Fridge "reinforcement" kit

    Hey all,

    Just installed my kit and it was super easy install. It is supposed to reinforce the door in a way to prevent what is supposed to be a common failure in that the door breaks. My understanding is when this happens you have to replace the fridge.

    Either way, I wanted the bit of insurance this thing offers. It is a Norcold kit - so the fact they make it leads me to believe this could happen.

    All that as a preamble to the fact the kit came with the parts to do either left hinged or right hinged. My fridge is left hinged - - so I have a full kit for a right hinged fridge I need to part with. No charge - I'll ship USPS to the first to respond they need and will use it.

    I have the 10 cubic foot one that comes in the unit in my sig. Don't know what others this may work for.

    Let me know if your interested......

      Here is the one I used. Go to the Norcold site to make sure of part # for your fridge. There was an extensive of this problem not long ago. The search function will find it.
