Dometic M-50 Door removal?

In order to clean up and paint my fridge, I want to remove the door. Sounds easy huh!

I can't find a real obvious (or not so obvious) method. The hinge pins are rounded over, and no screws are apparent nearby.

Help

On mine, the center, rounded over section of the hinge is just a metal cover. Pry it off with a small screwdriver, and there are two screws underneath

Are you talking about the piece mounted to the frame (not the door)? It's a white piece that wraps around the pin?

Thanks! I'll take a look when I get home tonight.

Yes, that is what I was referring to. I remember when I took my refrigerator apart, I struggled with the same question a little bit. It seems like I took the pins out once too, but my memory isn't what it used to be. There are covers to the pins, that ever since I removed them, don't fit as tightly as they used to. Now, I occasionally find the covers on the floor after a rough trip.
