kitchen cabinet hinge repair
I am new to the forum. I hope this is the right place to find some answers.
My kitchen cabinet door hinge just broke, and I was not able to figure out how to repair it. Could not fine any info on the web.
I attached the picture of the hinge (intact one).
There are two steel plates in the center on the left (door) side of the hinge (back to back, one behind the other, held in place by the vertical rod). I presume they help the door close, acting as springs. Yesterday, they fell out. I am not sure how to put them back together. Nothing seems broken. They are VERY hard to bend, even with pliers.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I could not even find those hinges on the web.
