Can I easily change the door from a left swing to a right swing? do I need to buy new hardware?

You should be able to reverse the door without much problem. You should not have to purchase any hardware. One way you can tell if you can reverse the doors is to look on the opposite side and see if there are some plastic buttons that cover up the holes where you would switch them. Hope this helps!

Switching door sides

some model you can, some you can't....if there are pre drilled holes with plastic plugs on the opposite side you will need to purchase hinges and maybe handles.

Features list reversible door swing. Can this be done on site or does it need to be done at the factory? We are being charged for a second delivery because the fridge came with the dorr swinging the wrong...

This should be able to be done on site. If you look at the top of the fridge, on the opposite corner from where your hinge is currently located, you should see some sort of plug(s) that covers the screw holes that are used for changing the hinge between left and right. The same thing on the bottom face of the fridge body. You will see the screw holes to change the bottom hinge side as well. The doors themselves should also have plugs that cover where they sit on the hinges when the door opening direction is changed. I've not done it with model of fridge before, but I have with many others (installed them for a living when I was younger) and it should be a very simple DIY job providing there aren't any water tubes for the ice maker going into the door. Even then, with a bit of patience you should be able to do it rather than be charged for such a simple thing.

Hope this helps!

Kelvinator Opal CS 390 F door has dropped down on handle side.

My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).

Change right hand door ,to left hand

Not sure with this model but most time you can and I'm sure this is no different, look at the screws holding the hinge bracket, there should be identical screw holes to match on the opposite side.
