Can these doors be removed for cleaning?


Recommended Posts

Can these doors be removed for cleaning? They look like they're set into the tiled units, there are no visible brackets, what's the secret? 🥴20210123_134055.thumb.jpg.c65ee3e257eb2473dc4aa194a556e7b3.jpg

If they are the same as mine they have 2 screws that secure a metal plate with a hinge pin that locates into a plastic bush, 1 at the top & 1 at the bottom, remove the 2 screws from the top and the door can be separated from the plate then the door can be removed out of the lower hinge fitting/ bush, when refitting do not tighten the screws too much as they can strip easily.

I have similiar too and mine are not removable from the caseing.

The hinge plates appear like rivet fixing.

The screen can be removed if that is any help ??

Open the door and pull GENTLY on the surround holding the screen in place, pull halfway down the door, but DO BE GENTLE !!

I also have a stand alone unit:

and the screen/glass can be removed in the same way.

Thanks for all the replies! These indeed cannot be removed, the back panel can - as AD has shown above - but the front panel can't 😞 toothbrushes and Haiter to the ready!

Can I chip in with related question. I have same doors in a concrete bench Thai kitchen.

Anyway did make over re tiling and a western kitchen etc. So the only thing that's horrible is the outdated King style doors. 40x60cm

Mine appear not removable. Has anyone done a cover up by placing ply (thin) or something similar to door front.

Post a few pictures of what you’ve got and what you want to achieve. Then we can advise.

Yes I could have removed/replaced door units.

There is western style kitchen opposite wall.

So only the old doors are an eyesore.

Its intended as a rental so the aim was a makeover rather than complete gut and replace

I would check to see if replacement units are available and prices, unless the doors are in great condition apart from the handles. Swapping out doors is likely to be cheaper and look better than trying to put a wood skin on them.

Yes I agree.

Since post I was looking across at my black glass fridge. Wonder if a 400x600 glass toughened is too heavy to attach to door front.

On left of bench doors will be black fridge and to the right under bench oven also black glass.

Is that granite you have used to cover the old tiles?

Can you post a photo of this 'oxygen cleaner' please? Our bathroom door frames are yellowing, I find it the most ugly of the upvc ugly traits...
