Look on the other side of the door and see if there's a plug covering a hole even with where the door handle attaches on the opposite side. If so, I think you just unscrew the handle from the top of the fridge door or bottom of the freezer door an unhook the other end and reattach on the other side of the door. And unscrew and move the hinge to the opposite side. If your doors can be reversed the holes should arleady be in place. It didn't look overly difficult when the delivery guy changed mine when the fridge was delivered.

Can I reverse the door?


Janet,
Most of the time you can. If you look on top of you refrigerator, and you see some button covers on the side opposite from your hinge, you should be able to reverse the door. Second, open the doors and see if there are button covers on the face of the door frame opposite the hinge. If you have both, you should be able to change them. You usually will need a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver and usually a 3/8" socket or nut driver. Start with the freezer door and take the hinge loose on top and swing the door open and lift up on it and remove it. Next take the middle hinge loose so that the top of the refrigerator door is loose and you can then lift up on it and remove it. Take the grill off of the bottom front of your refrigerator and you will see where the bottom hinge is located. Remove the hinge and move it to the opposite side and then loosen the swivel pin and move it to the opposite hole and re-tighten. On the middle hinge you will need to turn it over from the direction it was originally mounted so that you can re-install it. You will also need to switch some pieces on the bottom of each door to the opposite sides so that each door will operate properly. Once all pieces are switched, including the handles, just re-assemble in reverse order that you took it apart. Hope this helps!

How do i wire a chamberlain opener to work with push button 3 way switch, on/off/on and bypass logic board. mine burned out and i want to use motor to raise /lower patio roll up bamboo shade


Run wires from your switch and connect to terminals #1 and #2 on the motor unit. This will run the motor and it will automatically run in the opposite direction when you once again toggle your switch. You will need to adjust the up and down limits to stop the motor in the right spot for each direction. Before connecting the shade you should remove the cover from the motor unit and watch the operation of the limit switches.

I want to reverse the day on my dryer. How do I


If this is a Kenmore Elite dryer this is possible. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the dryer door by supporting the door while removing the screws on the hinge.

2. Lay the door face down on a good working surface like a table. Place some towels under the door to protect the surface.

3. Remove the series of screws on the INSIDE of the door and it comes apart in two halves.

4. Remove the hinge from the door and remove the plastic blank from the opposite side of the door.

5. Remove the door front plexiglas and rotate and reinstall so the door handle is on the oposite side of the door.

6. Reinstall door hinge on the opposite side of the door and reinstall plastic blank to cover where the hinge used to be.

7. Reinstall the inner door facing and screw the two halves together.

8. Pop out the small plugs on the door facing, so you can reinstall the door to the dryer. Place the plugs into the orginal screw holes on the opposite side of the door facing.

9. Reinstall door. The door will now open in the opposite direction.

Since the door switch(es) and catch are located on the top and bottom of the door facing (depending on model number) you don't have to worry about removing any switches or door catches.

This is a fairly simple process that shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes to accomplish. If you have any questions along the way, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps.

My microwave does not heat up food, it looks ok buy does not heat up at all


Please check your door safety interlock switches. Find them inside on the side opposite the hinge. If they measure open both with the door open and the door closed, they must be replaced. You are looking for one or more micro switches.

These switches are how the device knows whether the door is open or not - forget what YOU know about the door - the device must know the door is closed in order to turn on the heat.

Craftsman opener is not responding to limit switch on the down phase-- it continues down until the door goes full closed position and auto reverses. any suggestions? I have replaced the limit switch and...


On the side of the motor unit you will find the 'down limit' control. Turn this in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. It would be a good idea to take the cover off and watch the limit assembly while you are doing this to make sure it contacts before the door hits the floor.
