Replacement parts for Refrigerator

Hello After years of use the plastic parts (vegetable tray etc) in our Refrigerator (rented apartment) are cracking. Since we are liable for replacing these I shall be grateful for tips about where to procure them. The current parts are not original (V-Zug) - of course ordering from V-Zug would be possible, but I'd appreciate some cheaper alternatives. Thanks!

Does the handover document stipulate "non-V-Zug" parts - if not, then you may have to get originals. Last time I ordered parts for a Swiss product here in Switzerland I was staggered by how cheap they were.

I'd get in contact with V-Zug first before going off to look for other bits

How many years? These things have an expected life, and you can't be expected to replace parts beyond this.

As Dodgyken says, the V-Zug parts may not be too expensive. I had the same experience for consumer-replaceable parts - decent service and no need to take out a mortgage. For electronic components for the control board, well that was another story...
