kI 'repaied' mine by adding a minute drop of oil from the tip of a
toothpich (or pin) onto the visible hinge rod/spring. This reduces
the friction which causes spring windup that leads to spring pull-out
and hinge failure. Easy to do. Dip the pin in the oil (light, non-
motor oil such as 3in1 or sewing or hobby oil). The oil naturally
spreads along the shaft by capillary action..
