Replacement electrical panel door

What are my options to replace this door? It's old and the hinges are failing and latch is broken. I am not putting in a new panel just because some hinges are broken. I know I can do something to fix it, but I would much rather replace if possible. Is there a current replacement? Source for hard to find/vintage parts? I think it's from the 70's.

Sometimes spare parts are available for load centers, but I think you will have a very hard time tracking one down; they are not widely available, and are mostly for industrial and commercial panels; not residential.

Epoxying on a rare earth magnet or two would be a quick way to keep it in place and closed.

Thanks Carbide. That was my thought too, for the latch if I can't find a replacement. Any idea where I can determine part numbers for this panel? I see an accessory lock part number is printed on the door and that part is on eBay. Makes me think if I knew the part numbers of that latch, door or even the whole panel, I might be able to locate one easier.

Should be right on the label in the section marked "Cat NO"...can't read it in the pic.

Got it. TLM612S or TLM612F

Searches mostly result in the modern TLM612SCUD model.

These are the spring steel hinges and the latch handle I am after. Mostly the hinges.

This place says they have the panel (whole thing); guess you could see how much and decide if it's worth it just for the cover.

Your box is flush mounted, which means it should be the F.

Habet & Habet Ltd. - Belize Building Supplies, Belize Building Materials, Construction Supplies, Belize Hardware - GE Panel Box 4/8 125 AMP

The page is for a different box, but the note says they also have yours. Must be new-old stock if they do.

You'd have to make sure they don't send you the new version....

Have you tried calling GE to see what they say? Might get lucky and find that the new cover is still a valid replacement for the old one.
