Question about Whirlpool GB2SHDXP Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Change door opening direction on whirlpool fridge door

I have a bottom freezer fridge on which the handle to open the door is currently on the left hand side - I would like it to be on the right hand side. However, the hinge which sits on the freezer door and on which the fridge door rests does not work on the opposite side. All other parts work fine - what am i doing wrong?
thanks!

    thanks for the manual....however my center hinge does not look like that - which must be my problem! the center hinge - when used on the reverse side makes the freezer door rest too high for the holes on the fridge to work with the hinge....
    any other ideas? do you know of any whirlpool fridges that come with 2 hinges in case you want to reverse the door?
    thanks!

    Also for the middel hinge you need to remove the plastic capes where you want to put the new hinge location they just pull straight out tourds you. Then put them in the old holes where the hinge was.

    Manual does not show the handle that is now currently installed on the Whirlpool model gb2fhdxws 03 with a freezer drawer. Manual is out of date. We can not figure out how to get the handle off the left side to install it on the right side.

Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch


there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

To change the door opening side, you will have to do the following.
Move the hinges to opposite side. There should be a plugs in the holes for the new locations. Carefully remove them without damaging them. They will be re-used in the opposite side.
Remove the door and hinges. Install the hinges and door on the opposide. Insert the plugs in the
holes left from removing the hinges.

Carefully remove the plugs for the new location for the door handle.(You will reuse them)
Carefully remove the trim at the top and bottom of the handle. Now remove the screws and move the handle to the opposite side and install. Install trim top and bottom. Put the handle plugs in the holes left from the handle removal.
