Is your fridge suffering from a case of broken or defective hinges? Don’t waste your time or money ordering brand new doors for your refrigeration equipment. HardwareSource offers a wide selection of refrigerator hinges for products made by a variety of vendors. As with other pieces of hardware in your home, an appliance door hinge can break or wear out over time due to frequent use. When you think about the amount of times you open and close your refrigerator door on a daily basis, it is easy to see how those hinges are subjected to a great deal of stress. Luckily, we have all your needs covered in our selection of refrigerator hardware.
We keep our inventory stocked with a variety of refrigerator door hinge parts that are made of durable materials, so you can rest assured that the replacement part you choose will last a long time before it may need to be replaced again. Aluminum is a resilient material that is highly resistant to corrosion. Plus, it performs very well in cold environments. What makes die-cast zinc a particularly attractive choice for eco-conscious homeowners it the fact that it takes less energy to produce die-cast zinc products due to its lower melting point. Steel has always been a preferred choice when it comes to hardware, because it can stand up to demanding environments and high-traffic areas.
Different Types of Refrigerator Hinges
There are plenty of reasons why you may need to replace the hinges on your fridge. Loose or even misaligned hinges can cause a refrigerator door to rock or sag slightly. In turn, this can cause the door gaskets to seal poorly and make your fridge work harder to keep food and beverages cold. No matter what problem you are trying to fix, we can help. We have all your needs covered in our appliance door hinge collection. Here are several types of hinges we supply!
Flush Hinges: These surface-mounted hinges do not require a recess in the refrigerator door and they sit flush against the surface of the fridge.
Offset Hinges: Unlike their flush counterparts, these surface-mounted hinges project out from the surface of the fridge. We also carry narrow flange hinges for smaller service doors.
Strap Hinges: These hinges are designed for refrigerator doors where the frame and the door are flush together, the hinge swinging on bronze bearings. We offer a variety of sizes to choose from and hinges of varying weight capacities.
Once you select and install the right type of hinge for your fridge, it is important to inspect them regularly for damage and signs of distress. Refrigerator door hinge parts can develop an annoying squeak over time because the lubricant inside eventually wears away. Simply lubricate your hinges using either a penetrating lubricant suitable for appliances or petroleum jelly oil to keep your hinges functioning smoothly until it’s time for a replacement. You can also invest in new hinges for the purpose of reversing your refrigerator door to suit the traffic flow of your kitchen.
Your fridge and freezer are some of the few appliances that run continuously to keep your drinks and food cold. It is important to have durable door hinges that will keep your door securely closed. In addition to refrigerator hinges, we also offer refrigerator latches. We pride ourselves on maintaining a tradition of providing courteous, friendly service as well as a wide selection of hinges and hard-to-find items. If you have any questions about this selection of refrigerator hardware, please feel free to contact us for additional information.
Double Acting: Double acting hinges swing in both directions.
Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers.
Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
Radius Corner: Radius corners are typically only available on residential grade hinges. Corners are mortised using a router.
Double Demountable: Requires a slot be cut into the door and the cabinet frame.
