A new fridge is $1400 (in stock) and a new door is $550 (special order). I would probably lean towards a new fridge as something else will likely fail soon after I replace the door. I think I will investigate swapping the door hinges for $20 first though!

What kind of life expectancy have people seen with these little RV fridges?

Thanks very much for confirming! I really like the idea of swapping the hinges as an interim solution. What was the part number or hyperlink for the left side hinges?

I just did a search on eBay with the fridge model number and door hinges. They were new, both left and right , included the tabs to conceal hole, but not the screws, so save those.
Good luck!
