The MBR1952KES Has the hinges on the right only, you need to order a custom made door to move hinges on the left.

SOURCE: hoover contour fridge leaking

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Both the freezer and fridge doors hinge on the right, and the left hand side has sagged a little so neither neither door is sealing properly. How do I adjust the doors to raise the left side of the...


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ΒΌ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

Change doors of fridge freezer from right opening to left opening needless to say cannot find instructions after 10 years


tilt unit backwards,and under hinge side you will see a bracket,undo bolts and transfer to opposite side leaving loose,slide door down ,then on top of door transfer plug to opposite side(if needed)slide door back up and refit bottom hinges/tighten bolts.
handle is just a matter of prising plastic cover of and unscrewing,then refitting to other side.
once you tip it backward its pretty obvious really.

Need kit to convert my whirlpool fridge from rhs to lhs hinge


hi,
you may not have to buy anything, on most reversible door installations you just use the same hardware, just turn the hardware upside down or the other way around, same with the handles. look at the hinges closely, on the other side of the door is plastic caps, you just remove them and reinstall the door starting from the very bottom hinge. If there is a kit Im sorry, but Ive never had to buy any sort of kit and Ive done at least 10 fridges..

We have a fridge/freezer, upright bought some 15 years ago. Works fine, but we wish to reverse the doors to right opening from left. Please advise how to do it.


if you can notice that the doors have plastic plugs to the other side of the hinge then it is design to be reversible.

but if there is no indication that you can transfer the hinge to the other side of the door, then it is not designed to be reversible and there is nothing you can do about it.

i'm not sure if the old fridge are designed to be reversible.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Fridaire model frt181l6d50


You'll need to remove the top hinge cover from whatever side it is on currently and then lift the door off the hings post ( set the door aside) .. then the top of the fridge will have small removable caps that hide the nuts for where you fasten the hinge to that side. Reinstall those caps to hide the holes in the top of the fridge where the hinge used to be. Next, you will have to transfer the handle on the door to the opposite side ( same process as the hinge) .. You wil find small plastic caps that hide the holes you'll be using to secure the handle to the opposite side,. use the same process for the freezer door too..This process only applies to top/bottom type freezers and not side by side. Hope that helps
