There are a number of places, from Amazon to RestorationHardware and hundreds more, that carry original and/or replica hinges of that type. Probably cheapest if you find and buy them yourself rather than pay a professional to locate them, assuming they are actually bad and not just needing cleaning and lubrication, which is usually the case when they get balky. Might be able to get directly from manufacturer - website here -

Unless actually broken by someone hanging on the cabinet door, I have never seen a quality hinge fail of old age ornormal use - usually removal and cleanup with WD40, compressed air or brake cleaner, then re-oiling with gun oil is all they need. [NO brake cleaner if plated or have plastic parts] Do NOT try to clean in place - you WILL get stained woodwork.


Replacement if identical a Handyman could probably handle - if the replacements are similar but not identical then up to you whether you have them installed by a Handyman, risking possible cabinet damage or in worst case permanent door or frame face damage, or by a Cabinetry shop field installer.

I have a kitchen full of 1993 Grass hinges. Already, 5-6 have snapped, broken. One top cupboard nearly knocked me out when the hinge broke! No children, no one hanging from the cupboard doors!

DO NOT CONTACT GRASS. Their "warranty" is a scam. I had a broken 829-06 hinge. They no longer make them. If you try to get a replacement under Grass's "lifetime warranty" you will be required to agree to pay $25.00 for shipping and handling, then you will be required to take 4 pictures of the broken hinge in exact poses, and make meaurements on your cabinets, besides furnishing the Grass model number on the broken hinge as a prerequisite to even being given a price for the substitute hinge. Outrageous terms. I found replacements at Hingemeister.com which fit in eactly without drilling new holes, and they were about $10.00 for a PAIR plus $3.00 S+H, and they arrived within 3 days of ordering. In the meanwhile Grass's auhorized replacement agent, Cabinetparts.com debited my credit card for the $25.00 before I even jumped through all the loopholes to have them try to find a suitable substitute hinge, causing me to have to initiate a demand to have my credit card account credited for incompleted transaction.
