1974 Norcold Refrigerator
I have a 1974 Norcold frig, model DE 707, and somewhere along the line, the door was replaced by one that doesn't fit. Makes it impossible to close the door all the way. I've talked to Thetford who now owns Norcold, and they say no part are available. This is a single door model with the freezer inside with it's own door. The unit is AC/DC and works nicely. This may be like looking for a needle in a haystack but anyone have one laying around or know where I might be able to find the right door?

Dimensions and picture would help. Might have been used in other models and years...

The door that replaced the original is deeper, causing the shelves of the door to hit the freezer door. I bought some 1/4" nylon spacers for the hinges, installed a second gasket around the door opening of the frig, and now all works fine. Interesting frig in that it has it's own inverter that changes the DC to AC when the frig in is DC mode. Imagine, a 44 year old frig that still works.
