Kenmore refrigerator flapper door
« on: April 25, 2013, 03:08:31 PM »
Model 106.51102110. This is Whirlpool built. The plastic tabs that hold the hinge pin for the flapper door broke off and the housing is not available as a part. I thought I saw somewhere that there is a part to fix this problem.

Thanks for the info but those won't work. There is a video for that second part. Watch the guy pop the hinge pin out of its slot on the right side. It is that slot that breaks and then there is no place for the hinge pin to set in. This is the third one I have come across. The piece of plastic was hanging by a thread on the second one so i glued it back in place. Seems to be holding up.I figured Whirlpool must be aware of the problem and I was hoping there was a fix.

It's not a bad job.  Just make sure the bracket's positioned perfectly before you stick it because you only get one shot.
