This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
Remived the old hinge with no problem. Installed new part, and found that none of the holes lined up (not even close). Had to grind old hinge apart and use it as a template to lay out and drill bolt holes in replacement part. Installed new hinge, then found that it wouldn't close the fridge door. It will hold it closed, but that's about it. What should have been a 10 minute job took over an hour,

the freezer hinge was very easy to replace the refrigerator gasket was removed by taking the screws out and removing the door panel new gasket was put on the door panel then screwed back on the door the gasket was not fitting against the refrigerator cabinet real good untill I heated it up with a blowdryer then it fit fine.
it was quite simple, just took off the plastic cover, unscrewed the nuts and took off the old hinge. I then matched the new one with the old one, as the new left and right hinges look alike, but they differ in the type of spring they have. Once screwed back on, put the plastic cover back on, and it is good as new. I replaced both hinges at the same time, just to be safe.
Extremely easy repair. Less than 5 minutes to repair. I had the part on my refrigerator two days after I ordered it. There is no way to get it any faster than that. Thanks for the lightning quick delivery.
