Want to reverse door handles

I am reversing the door on my old Kenmore refrigerator. How do I get the door handles off so they can be moved to the other side. One of the fastners for each handle is "hidden", with no apparent way to get the handle unscrewed. The other end on each handle wraps around the edge of the door so can be easily be unscrewed.

On most you take the top hindge off. Lift the door off the bottom one then remove the bottom hindge.

How do you reverse the door


If its a side by side like the one showing on your post, I doubt you can unless there is a spot showing for under the door, and the water and electrical lines are long enough to switch.

Removing refrigerator door handles


You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

Want to reverse door swing on Kenmore refrigerator model # 795


Actually, I have a Kenmore 795 model with the top door and bottom drawer freezer. I just tried this, based on "guru's" advice. Unfortuately, though the TOP hinge on this model is reversible, the bottom hinge is NOT. I got it all apart before I discovered this problem. Also you might want to note that the 7/16th wrench is too big for my bolts and the 3/8ths is too small. I had to use an adjustable wrench...maybe they are metric.
An allen wrench will get the handles off for you. You will find little ports for it if you look carefully.

Switching doors to open the opposite direction


Look on the other side of the door and see if there's a plug covering a hole even with where the door handle attaches on the opposite side. If so, I think you just unscrew the handle from the top of the fridge door or bottom of the freezer door an unhook the other end and reattach on the other side of the door. And unscrew and move the hinge to the opposite side. If your doors can be reversed the holes should arleady be in place. It didn't look overly difficult when the delivery guy changed mine when the fridge was delivered.
