Looking for hinge ID assistance

I'm hoping someone can help me. We have a broken hinge on a kitchen cabinet, and I'm trying to fix it while my wife is out of town. The problem is, I don't know that much about this subject, and I have no idea what kind of hinge this is, it's not like anything I've seen before.

I've attached shots of two sides of the bad hinge, the part that screws into the cabinet, the good hinge (these two got reversed in the post) and the cabinet itself, it's an odd cabinet overall. The bad hinge is on the right side, not the 90 degree part. Of course the pics aren't rotated on my system, but are rotated here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Looks to be a KB or grass 180 degree. You don't have to use the exact brand. Go on to Blum.com look up 180 degree corner hinge. There all standard European hinges 35 millimeter which is the size of the hole in the door. Make sure you specify you have a full overlay door. You want a full overlay. 180 corner hinge good luck. You can call Blunt customer service there very helpful

Thanks. I looked around, the closest thing I can find is this, a 170 degree Blum cliptop. Since the cabinet doesn't really open a full 180, would this work, if I got the full? From the description they have on Amazon, I like the idea of tool-less mounting, would make it much easier to do myself.

yeah that one will work. The tooless is definitely great it all we use. Simply insert into 35milimeter hole and close the hinged flap and you're done. The plate that mounts to the cabinet has plastic inserts that push into hole.you're cabinet may not have holes drilled for this but don't worry. Hold the plastic sleeve with plyers and take out the screw that holds it. Than You can screw the plate to the cabinet side

you might want to replace all the hinges on that actual door

Fyi.... You might want to replace all the hinges on that door..... The hinges are designed to work together, and if you aren't replacing with the exact same hinge that was busted, then when you go to open it, it might open at with a different swing arc, and put more strain on the hinges, prematurely wearing them out again. When you have the same hinges throughout the door, then you won't have that problem, and they should last you a long time.

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Good advice. Couldn't tell from the pictures if the hinges in question were the ones from the door to the face frame, or between doors (where one door is hinged off the other).

Hinges could be dowel type, and the plastic dowel removed, and then the hinge can be screwed in, as suggested. Mounting plates just get screwed in. AFIK.

That's a European/blum hinge. Hardwaresource.com has a big variety of these in various sizes. This should get you you to the hinges you need: http://www.hardwaresource.com/hinges...-+Blum+Hinges/ or http://www.hardwaresource.com/hinges...ges%2C+Generic. If you can't find them, let me know
