Re: switching doors to open the opposite direction
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.

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!
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.
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.
In some cases they are designed in such a way where all you have to do is to remove the door and re-install it upside down to locate handle to the other side. Check to see if that's the case with yours!
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.
