It can be put on the top of the door, when speaking with Norcold they say you can use it for top and bottom.  I can't see a purpose for using it on top since you would be putting it on the top of the plastic portion of the hinge that would be carrying no weight.  It might reinforce the metal post portion of the hinge but that is not what is breaking on these doors.  It probably wouldn't hurt but I do not know if it would affect the closing of the door since we ony installed it on the bottom hinge.

I have talked to Norcold three different times and got different answers each time.  The documentation that came with the kit says "retrofit hinge-left", "retrofit hinge-right".

I just checked my door and the bottom plate that is attached to the refriderator is metal. The part attached to the door is plastic. When I had to replace the hing on my other PC, Norcold told me only some of the N621 models have the breaking hing problem. If I was worried about it, I would get my model ans serial numbers and call Norcold or get on their website and chat with them before getting new parts. Just me.

I recall the non GFI RV outlets (all the others) are a bit strange when compared to conventional outlets you buy at a home improvement center.  I would think it is best to replace all outlets and use the screw terminals, not the push-in blade features.  But maybe you will also need an outlet box.  I forget exactly what's there, just recalling it's not house-standard.

When reinforcing one door, is there a benefit to installing the other piece up top to reinforce it as well?  Or is it a throw-away/give-away/sell-on-ebay component?

Looking at our freezer door, the hinge is on the right. We would love to have that extra part.

Yes, they are mirror images, you get a right hand swing and a left hand swing.  Two kits are needed if you want to do the freezer door.  I do not put anything heavy on the freezer door so chose not do reinforce that hinge.  We are hoping George and Judi can use our extra one for their feezer door.  I think their door swings the opposite of ours.

Question for Barry-Sue.  They are mirror image parts so I assume you use both parts on the same fridge door.  If I want to reinforce the freezer door as well, I would then need two kits....right?

This is a picture of the Norcold reinforcement kit 634166 that we ordered off of amazon.  The instructions are not very clear but if you remember once you remove the door the part attaches to the bottom of the door.  It is a 5 minute job once you realize how it attaches.  Remove the door, slide this piece of metal on the bottom lip of the door, add the spacer, reinstall the door and you are good to go.

Our 2007 dinette seat belts seem to be a little shorter than a car would typically have, yet we are able to use them.  The factory might be able to send you seat belt extensions.  They would have the buckle on one end and the receiving metal clip on the other.
