Integrated fridge freezer hinges

Postby confusedandstressed » Wed Feb 10, 2010 5:16 pm

I am trying to fit my indesit integrated fridge freezer (model number IN C 325 AI UK) and the hinges for the houseing do not allow the salad drawer to open as they only open to 90 degrees. I am sure this is not normal, they should open to atleast 120degree shouldn't they?

Can anyone suggest a solution to this for me as Homebase (who supplier the appliance and housing) are unable/unwilling to help.

oh I have the mounting kit which contains the plastic sliders to connect the appliance doors to the cabinet doors.

Many Thanks :?:

You'll probably have to replace the door hinges with ones which open to 270 deg.
