Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
What I understand from your query is that you want to alter the door opening direction If I'm right... Altering the door such that it opens on the counter side is possible. but in most cases, it ruins the working of the device completely.. actually changing the direction causes many things to go wild from the refrigerator light switch. to the refrigerator doors gasket. Also it requires some new holes to be drilled at the other side... That turns the alteration to more complex and tricky.. In a nut shell, I would not suggest to have such changes to your equipment.
Have a nice day,
Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you, Concerned.
it doesn't appear that this is possible with this unit, typically anymore you can't change the doors on refigerators as there are too many services (ice, water, freon) going through the door, and yours has a permanently attach tag at the top right and there are no holes on the other side of the door for the handle. some would think that you could turn the door over and that would put the handle on the other side, but i am betting that it will not work
first remove the door from the fridge, remove the hardware connected to the fridge, on the opposite side should be rubber or plastic caps covering some bolt holes. remove caps and install top of hinge transfer everything you see on the left to the right
This is a simple job remove both doors and switch them from left to right.You will have to remove the plugs from the holes where the hinge go be sure to adjust the gap between the doors and put the plugs back in the place where the old hinge screws were.
Hope this was helpful.
There is a service bulletin related to this, dealing with deformation / melting of the lamp cover. The fix is to change the lamp wire harness to one that now has a thermal protector incorporated in it (part number 6621JK2003B) along with changing the main PCB board to one that uses a larger relay for this function (part number 6871JB1423N).
In case you want or need to replace the following,
The lamp cover is part number 3110JA1096A and the lamp holder is part number 3034JA1009A
I tried to cut and paste a few photo's, but was unsuccessful. Sorry. Make sure to test that fans and light switches work after part changes.
in case you haven't figured it out by now. open rt side door and top right corner is the filter push the little plastic tab and the housing drops down , a quarter turn counter clockwise and the filter should pull out, reinsert the new filter screwing clockwise and close housing, remember to pull water from dispenser right away you will have let air into system so some sputtering will occur till its purged
