Hi Mel, I looked for a manual for your fridge but couldnt find one. These jobs are pretty similar - regardless of brand however.

You should first deremine if your model does indeed support swapping the hardware to allow the door to swing the other direction. Look at the points of attachement for the handles and hinges on the door and the fridge body itself. There are typoically pre drilled holes for fasteners in these parts on the opposite side - but have plugs or covers over them to minimize their appearance. if you have these tell tale indicators present - you're good to go.

The process will require removal of all products stored on the doors of the fridge and freezer compartments, and placing in a thermal container or cooler.

The hinges consist of one at the top, one at the bottom and usually one in the center that engages both the bottom of the top door and the top of the bottom door.

At the top, you may need to remove a bezel or cover to gain access to the fastener head(s). Many times these are hex head screws, but could be any type really. Two, 3 or more fasteners may be used to hold the top inge to the fridge. Once the screws are loosened / removed the tops door will shift - so be ready for it (or have afriend support it while you remove the fasteners). The doors are surprisingly light - a thein meta outer jacket wrapped around a lightweight drame, lots of insulation and plastic is it really is. Lift the top door up and away from the center hinge pin. You may find one or more spacers or washers made of metal or more likely - nylon. Remove these and set aside as they will likely be needed to put back in place when the hardware is reversed.

The lower door is being help by the center and bottom hinges now. You should have access to fasteners holding the center hinge to the fridge. Support the bottom door as you loosened and remove the fasteners on the center hinge If you are unable to access the fasteners of the center hinge, try the fasteners on bottom hinge instead. If you get the center hinge loosened, you should be able to lift on the door slightly to roll it out from between the center and bottom hinge. otherwise, when the bottom hinge fasteners are removed, the door will drop and be free from the fridge. Look for similar spacers or washers on the bottom hinge pin that yuou found on the top of the center hinge pin and save them.

Remove any remaining hinges from the fridge.

Remove door handle hardware from both doors and remove plugs / covers from the opposite side of the doors. Secure the door handles to the otherside and insert the plugs and covers into the holes that had previously been used to fasten the handles.

Remove the covers / plugs from the fridge and insert into the opening that previously fastened the hinges to the fridge. Swap any covers / plugs on the doors for hinges if needed.

Reinstall the hinges and doors in reverse order of removal. If the bottom hinge was last to come off - it is first to go on. Reinstall the spacers on the pin. The bottom door is placed on the bottom hinge pin. Place the center hinge pin into the recess of the top door and secure the hinge to the fridge. Place the spacers over the top pin of the center hinge. Place the top door recess over the center hing pin. Align the top hinge with the recess on the top of the door and insret fasteners through top hinge into fridge. Hand tighten all fasteners. Operate doors and check for rubbing, binding, etc. Adjust number and location of spacers as needed to allow doors to swing without scraping or binding. Once satisifed, tighten all fasteners. Adjust feet of fridge as need to allow the doors to close by themselves if left open by accident. Restock fridge & freezer.

Done!

If you look at the opposite side of your refrigerator, you'll find one or more plastic covers which can be removed to expose mounting holes. You have to remove the doors from the current mounting position, remove the hinges and transfer them to the other side, install the doors and you're done

Tighten door handles on a 2000 ge refrigerator side by side


The retaining screws are often concealed by pieces of trim that have to be located and carefully prised out. This is particularly true with the single door fridge that can be converted from left to right opening but in the case of a side-by-side where the handles are considered permanent fixtures it is possible the handles were fitted to the doors before the door liners were fitted.

Refrig door trays do not stay in place. Door studs too far apart.


Hi there. Take one of the trays to a hardware store or even a home depot and but a 12 inch piece of clear plastic tubing which fits snuggly over the studs. Cut the pieces just long enough so that the trays snuggly fit into the refrigerator door. This will solve your problem for a few cents compared to a very pricey repair kit from the manufacturer of the refrigerator. good luck.

Oven door isn't closed tightly on both sides.


If it is a door that lifts up and down, then the only solution is to replace both door hinges, as they are not normally adjustable, it is the springs that are weak.
Plz rate my solution.
