Hi, In MOST cases it is possible. There sould be some small plastic caps in the places where you would put the hinge screws. Just remove the plastic plugs with a small knife (carefull not to ruin them) and once you have changed the hinges over, put the plastic plugs into the screw holes that the hinge was attached to.

Hope this helped

Item comes with right hinged door...I need left hinged door.


On some models you can move the hinges and door pull to the opposite side. On the side without a hinge, you would see plugged holes (plastic plugs covering the holes). You may have to move the top right hinge to the bottom left and bottom right to the top left (opposite of this for a left-hinged refrigerator/freezer).

You may need help to do this, and be careful.

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

Want to switch the side the door opens on my lg dryer


The directions for reversing the door can be found on page 13 and 14, with pictures of the operation. Open the door to reverse. Check the 10 screws that need to be removed (6 on the left, 4 on the right). Remove 4 dummy screws with a screwdriver. Remove the two screws from, and disassemble, the latch. Hold on to the hinge while removing 4 screws from the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Remove the door from the cabinet cover. Move the door to the left side and insert a hinge into a hinge hole. Hold on to the hinge while screwing down the hinge (to prevent the door from dropping). Insert the latch to the right side and install the screws. Screw down the 4 dummy screws to the right side. Check that the door closes and latches properly.

Need part number for left and right hinge clip(s).


You just swop the bottom and top hinges,remove the top hinge and install on other side on bottom, do reverse with bottom hinge ,if there is provision for the hinges to be swoped by means of threaded holes on the refrigerator and holes on the otherside of the door (left or right). Before you start see if its possible. Good luck,

I have a kenmore upright freezer model 970-254326 bought in 2011 from sears. The door opens left to right but in my tiny apartment I NEED it to open from right to left just to put things in and get th


You should see some plastic plugs or holes for mounting bolts on the opposite side of the freezer case. The latch mechanism should adapt from one side to another.
You would remove the top hinge and then lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Then you would remove the bottom hinge and switch it to the other side. Place the door onto the bottom hinge and then install the top hinge on the other corner of the case to match.
You should be able to move the handle from one side to the other. The magnets in the doorseal should work as before to keep the door closed. The interior light is usually centered on the bottom to aid in reversing the door opening.

Is it possible to reverse door swing on dryer? My daughter has a new Elite front load dryer that swings from left.


REVERSING DOOR SWING
Your dryer is designed so the door swing may be reversed at any time without additional parts. Conversion is accomplished by transferring hinges to the opposite side of the cabinet.
To change the direction of the door opening:
1. Open the dryer door. Remove the four hinge hole plugs from the left side of the door opening. Place nearby for future installation. NOTE: You may need a plastic knife to help pull out the plugs. Be careful not to scratch the paint.

2. Remove the four screws that secure the door hinges to the dryer front panel (see below). NOTE: Remove one screw from each of the two hinges first. Hold the door firmly before removing the last two screws.

3. Rotate the door 180° and reinstall the door hinges to the dryer front panel with the four screws.

4. Install the four hinge hole plugs in the open screw holes on the right side of the door opening.

Hope this helped Tim

I want to reverse the hinges.


Only if the fridge is set up for this. Look at the top right corner of the case and see if there is a plastic plug. If there is it is drilled and tapped for the mounting hardware that is being used on the left. Remove the hinges and put them on the right side. The door handle should have the same set up.

MAYTAG MDBO880AWB LEAKS FROM LEFT SIDE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES AND


If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue
