This worked perfectly. I needed only the cover but the piece that goes inside teh wall was included as well.
It would be nice if the outer component were offered separately as the spring seems to be a part that breaks more frequently. I hate to waste (and pay for) parts that I'm not using. Otherwise the product was excellent.
Fit the job perfectly
Easy to install. Works as described.
..alas, this is the 2nd time in less than a year that the spring-loaded door has failed.. I wish that the door was available as a separate item for this repair. Also, we contacted the installer (Cascade Electric) for the repair and have received NO response, so I affected repairs myself..
Relatively easy replacement but, I cracked one of the contact attach point by over tightening. It is a stainless screw that threads into a nylon hole. Perhaps the hole could be sleeved with copper or brass to provide better durability.
The part we needed was only a small part of the total package, so I guess we paid for more than we needed, but what we did need worked just fine.
The service was good and the parts were fine. I just wish you could break the kit apart. I only used the cover piece, the rest will be wasted.
Easily installed to replace a damaged unit.
Needed this part to replace a broken door. It's the right part and it works -- I'd have rated it higher if I could have just purchased the door assembly. I have no need for the in-wall portion of the kit.
Your service was great and I had no problems installing the door.
i only needed a new cover plate and spring but the kit was easy enough to take apart and install the needed parts.
In reality, I only needed the cover but that didn't appear to be an option. The hinges on the covers tend to break off in dry climate. This is the third one that I have rreplaced in eight years. Any thoughts on selling the covers only? (NOTE: The covers are the expensive part, making the separation of the backing plate from the cover not worth it.)
Easy to install. I just wish you could replace the front plate only since the plastic hinge was all that needed to be replaced.
Great kit. However, very expensive and overkill for cases where only the door needs to be replaced.
Works well, however one inlet cover plate broke after a while due to a tight fitting vacuum hose. MD quickly shipped a replacement, for a fair price.
This is a large price for a spring which has minimal in value. The spring could be improved with the small end elongated and placed in a manner for greater support than that received by a single piece of plastic.
(MD NOTES: The Square Door style can be replaced with the Full Face style. The Full Face hinges all the way open and rarely breaks.)
Probably the best one out there. The fit to the vacuum hose end is very tight, could be designed better. It's too bad that you can't buy just just a replacement exterior door assembly as the spring that holds the door closed is what usually breaks. So there is no need for most of this assembly in replacement applications.
Hinge assembly could be more durable. Should the metal pin bend then the spring becomes unfastened and the door will not close automatically.
Just needed the outer piece. Why pay for the extra unneeded section?
prompt service...but all i needed was the cover, would have been nice to be able to just purchase that.
