Satish From Mt. Laurel, NJ

Sep 30, 2012

Removed the door's top hinge support by removing two hex bolts. Lifted the door off of the bottom hinge and laid it out on the dining table. Removed the old hinge bearing from the bottom of the door and replaced it with new. Installed the door and refastened the top hinge bracket. Note that there are two hinge bearings that mesh with each other - one is attached to the bottom of the door itself and the other attached to a bracket on the cabinet (part 13). As long as you have taken the door off, replace both hinge bearings. You may need some help from a second person to hold the door in place when the top hinge bracket is removed.
