Norcold fridge help

As most know, my fridge was replaced under warranty the first year I had the camper, I just noticed that there's a strange looking piece of plastic wrapped cardboard in the upper corner of the freezer. I'm 99% certain it should have been removed after installation, i'm not happy I didn't notice it quicker.

Can anyone check and see if their Norcold fridge has this piece? Thanks.

Would if I could.

But I'm pretty sure I'd have noticed that BIG HUGE EYESORE.


I opened it daily for ice (tea) for a year!

I wonder if someone didn't fashion that to cover say, a broken corner of the liner?
I know that's negative thinking but it is the RV industry and I have experienced broken liners before.

That would suck, the door is starting to sink a little on that side, you have to lift up a little when closing it. It does still get plenty cold...

Ok, since we're heading out tomorrow and the fridge is on, I got paranoid and pried that sucker off. It was a cover for a hinge swap but the stupid thing is 1/8" thick. I gently twisted the door back straight and it sealed nicely at the top, could barely pull a dollar bill out.

I'll be damned! The old boxes had the hinges on top for swapping. Good we know is wasn't what I thought.
Can you adjust the hinge so the door doesn't sag?
