Broken cabinet door.. Need help in identifying the part


The Euro hinges are known as hidden hinges and come with two distinct sections - One that gets fixed to the side of the cabinet while the other is sunk into the door

The cup needs to be comfortably housed into a hole drilled into the door. It is the cup portion of the hinge that opens and closes while the other section that is fixed on the side of the cabinet is static

These hinges are not visible from the outside and are hence also known as concealed or hidden hinges

They are primarily used when the frames of the cabinets need to be covered (as in our case). However, there are also other modes of installation where the frame can be visible

In India, Euro hinges are predominantly used for Kitchen cabinets. Some carpenters prefer the regular hinges for wardrobes because of the cost factor. Euro hinges are atleast 3-4 times costlier than the regular...

Speak out for your right to repair.

New York,

New Yorkers stand up for what they believe in. And we're asking you to stand up for repair.

This year, New York could be the first state in the nation to pass the Fair Repair Act, A8192 and S618. We have a chance to guarantee our right to repair electronic equipment—like smartphones, computers, and even farm equipment. We have a chance to protect local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out by manufacturers.

It’s not going to be easy. Manufacturers are standing in the way. When your stuff breaks, they want to be the only people allowed to fix it. So far, they’ve managed to stop Fair Repair legislation before your representatives get a chance to vote on it. We’ve got to be louder than their lobbyists.

The Fair Repair Act, known as A8192 and S618, requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair...

And How To Respond

Here is MoroninMD's tale:

I had an orange magic sales man come to my door today. He was a young kid probably in his early twenties who could talk fast enough to put my head in circles. He showed me how great his product was and what it could do against all surfaces. After five or so minutes, I let him in to show how it could get up carpet stains and he tried to get me to buy two gallons of this stuff for like $120. I flat out said that it wasn't my place and I had no money and he left very easily.

However, since then, I have been thinking non-stop about who this kid could have been and just how stupid it was to let him in. It was rare for me to see these type of sellers and now I'm worried that he might have been scouting for a house to rob or something (call me paranoid). The worst part was I asked for a number or business card to get back to him and he didn't have either. He searched the bottle he was holding (claimed it was new but it was...

This will probably one of the shortest guides ever but I hope the information is useful for people.

It was prompted by a forum post and I will re-use the users error here.

The following message was being displayed;

Custom Assets: 488352822.Bus Underpass_Data: NetInfo missing [BrokenAssetException]

No details
BrokenAssetException: Broken assets:

Custom Assets: 488352822.Bus Underpass_Data: NetInfo missing

Now how do you know which of the many thousands of Workshop items do you have an issue with?

You could try searching for Underpass and Bus in the workshop or you could make a note of that number, 488352822.

This is the ID of the item in the Steam workshop.

If you take that ID and add it to the URL;

It will take you directly you directly to the right page,...

This might be of use to you:
Not sure how easy it'll be to find a separate mirror but you can browse for cabinets here:
If you find a similar-sized similar-framed door, at the lowest price, then take it and just replace the door. Or carefully remove the glass and stick it on the old one with adhesive, per the diy page. If you can't do that, just replace the entire cabinet, there should be screws or nails on the inside of the cabinet that you'll have to remove. They may be hidden, you might have to take the shelves off...

Cabinet doors get a lot of use. Over time, the hinges can become loose or bent. Once you know how to repair the hinges, the doors will work like new. It is a matter of deciding if the hinge can be repaired, or if it needs to be replaced.

Open the cabinet door and lift up on it to find where the sagging is. The top hinge is usually the one that needs to be repaired.

Tighten any loose screws on the hinge using a screwdriver. Make sure that the door is lifted up while tightening the screws. If the door sags again after this, the holes are worn and the next steps are necessary.

Remove the door from the cabinet by unscrewing the hinges from the cabinet face. If the stripped hole is on the door itself, remove the hinge from the door as well.

Fill the stripped holes with wood glue. Pack wooden toothpicks into the holes. Allow the glue to dry and cure according to the instructions on the label.

Cut the toothpicks flush with the wood after the...

Question: My 20-year-old kitchen cabinet doors are wood composite with a white plastic coating. I recently got a new gas range, and the heat melted and warped the plastic on an adjacent cabinet door. I can’t find a manufacturer’s name anywhere on the cabinets, and I am told that the design on the front, with rounded corners, is no longer made. I don’t want to have to replace all 16 of my cabinet doors. Is there any way to repair this or reproduce one door to match the others?

— Falls Church

Answer: From the pictures you sent, it’s clear that the plastic coating is thermofoil — a colored layer topped by clear vinyl that’s applied to the door in a process that uses a vacuum and heat. Unfortunately, if this kind of finish gets too hot, it melts and deforms. You can’t just reheat it and press it back into shape.

There are a few things you can try short of replacing all the doors. First, look around the kitchen or even other rooms to see if you have matching doors...

see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

You can look through the info on Grass, Blum, and Salice hinges at :



I use mostly Blum, but all three are good brands. Each manufacturer has its own "system" of hinges and base plates, with different degrees of opening, different attachment methods and different closing (self-close, soft-close, "free swinging") options.

Understanding the "system" can take a little time, but basically you need to get the right combination of hinge and baseplate to perform as you desire.

If you wanted to replace your hinges with Blum 170 degree, screw-on mount, self-closing hinges, you could order a pair of B071T6650 with 9mm plates (B175H719)

The hinge bore distance will affect the space ("reveal") between door and cabinet opening. A BD of 4-5mm will result in a reveal of about 1/8" (3mm)---with some adjustment available (+/- 1/8")

Samsung washing machine DE Error code means that the door is open or you may have a fault with the lock. if the door is clearly closed but the machine think it is open, presumably because it’s not getting power passed from the door interlock. see our videos on how door locks work

The first thing to check is that the door is closed properly. When the door is closed, the latch on the door pushes into the door interlock and slides a bar over, it should latch firmly and activate a part inside the lock. At this point the power is passed from one side of the door lock to the other and on to the rest of the machine.

Washing machine DE error, door detected as being open

Check door is closed correctly and latched. Check door handle for damage or wear. Check child safety if this feature is on the machine. Check door lock if inoperative replace door lock. Check door lock wiring for burnt connections

A door lock is a hard-working piece of equipment, but it often goes unnoticed. However, when it breaks, you can end up shut out of your own house, or unable to secure your home.

In order to fix this problem, you need to identify exactly what is wrong with your door lock. Here are some potential problems and their solutions:

1. The Lock Has Seized Up

If you can put the key in the lock but cannot to turn it, the lock may have seized because dirt or grime has gotten caught in the mechanism. To clean the lock mechanism, insert a damp cotton swab into the keyhole and jiggle it around to attract the dirt. Next, the lock needs to be lubricated. Never use oil for this task. Instead, choose a purpose-made graphite or silicone spray with a directional nozzle. When you have applied the spray to the keyhole, insert the key and wiggle it in the lock to distribute the lubricant evenly.

2. Weather Stripping Caused Lock Malfunction

Weather stripping may cause...

I’m beginning to think my LG LDF6920ST dishwasher is a lemon. After I fixed the leak in my other post, the door started falling down without any resistance. Obviously something else is broken! But it’s my only dishwasher and the prospect of buying a new appliance just doesn’t get me very excited. And besides, when it works it does a pretty good job.

This time, I figured I’d just call a service technician since I just didn’t want to fool with it and I had a lot of other things that were stressing me out. It was a good thing it happened on a weekend, because after the initial frustration and annoyance and my declaring to everyone in the family that I was sure I couldn’t fix it this time, my curiosity started getting the better of me. I’m sure there’s some kind of hinge or something…

For me, the initial shock of something large and expensive not working gets me all frustrated. I guess it somehow triggers my fight or flight reflex and when it comes to repairs, my first...
