The lower door on the fridge of my Brewer 12.8 seems to be plated, recycled, pot metal and just about corroded away. Does anyone know of a source for a new door catch pls?

I purchased a refer door latch similar to one used in a commercial kitchen very nice from Rich Beers in Ft. Lauderdale but my guess is that any commercial refrigeration service can get one for you.

Thanks Lew. I have looked on line but little success.. Since this is a poor quality fitting I wondered if other members have replaced it and if so what with.

Coincidentally, ours broke this past weekend - the handle is fine, but the little striker plate that it latches to is broken. I've found what looks like the identical handle on a few websites, but they are priced over $100 and I'm too frugal for that. I'm thinking a barrel bolt, or some other kind of latch. Defender has a Sea Dog latch that looks like it would work, item #401013, an anti-rattle latch. The dimensions are pretty close to the existing reefer latch handle, but it is a little lower profile. Maybe I'll get really lucky and the screw holes will match up.

He who will not risk cannot win.

This post may be a bit late, or maybe the Brewers have a different system, but I have an original complete insulated wooden refrigerator door with hinges and the latch assembly. It will be available in about a week.I finally broke down and bought a 12v isotherm that will be installed in the old frige box. Anyone need this door and assembly let me know. I can send a photo if anyone wants one - it's in great shape.
