Dometic refrigerator door hinge broke :-(

My lower hinge on the lower door broke into pieces this weekend. Not sure how i did this....

Luckily door does stay in place for now. But, need to fix asap....before wife tries to use it.

Looking on line for replacement frame ..as it looks like upper and lower hinge are part of the side rail of the door.

Hinge is molded into door frame.

Cant find anything.

Do i really need to order a whole new door?

Any suggestions.

Model is DM2663RBX- right hand door

Thanks in advance for your comments

When ours started showing signs of cracks. I epoxied the cracks and added the hinge repair kit.
It has held up well for the past 3 years.

Yup, got some JB Weld and fixed mine. Poor design with just plastic for structure. Filled the whole area. Required some creative balancing of the door to keep the epoxy where I wanted it and the hole in the right place. The kit above looks good if you can wait for it- we were on the road.
