I just checked mine, I have the single door new style. It has metal hinges on both top and bottom.

To back up Jim on this one, both of our handles were cracked. I contacted Dometic and they quickly sent replacements. So, if your DM2663 is still under warranty, I recommend checking the handles and ,if cracked, ask for Dometic replacements. The plastic is quite thin where it cracked.

Yes, separate doors for the fridge and freezer.

Too much movement on top hinge of refrig door

Hello. I came to this discussion because we are having some issues now with our Dometic refrigerator door model RML 8555 in our 2013 Escape 5. The upper hinge has too much movement, it moves from side to side, causing the door to maybe not properly seal when closed. The plastic female hole had a small piece break off, but we have been able to glue that back on. What can we do about this extra movement? That can't be good. Thanks for any response. ( As this was bought used, I did not know to not load the door with heavy items. So, even though the door has never opened while traveling, I am sure those heavy items have taken a toll on the hinge area).

I don't know if this will work for you but this is how I fixed the hinge on my 8851 fridge over 2 years ago and the fix is still working perfectly.
