Hi, The parts are interchangeable (hinges & handles)
You should have some small plastic plugs/caps that are covering the holes already drilled for the change. Once you remove the doors and then remove the plugs, just reinsert the plugs into the old holes and switch hinges and door handles to the opposite spots.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

We have a Samsung side by side fridge model number SRS 596NP. It is a double door (side by side) fridge/freezer. After moving house the top right hand door does not seal properly and is slightly lower than...


  1. Anytime you move a fridge there is a chance that the doors will slide of balance so to speak, the simple fix is usually to readjust them by tightening/loosening the screws on the mount at the top of the door(usually under a cap that is the same color as your fridge). You want the door open when you adjust the level of the door and depending on your model the bottom may need to be adjusted as well. It should be pretty simple just open the door and hold it up a bit to about where you want it to sit and tighten your screws on the hinge, hopefully that helps.

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

Tip

Lights on one side fridge not cooling.


mine fridge Viking VCBB363L Bottom Freezer Refrigerator.
Took a cell phone camera in video mode and put it in the fridge to see if the light was going out when the door was closed.
Turns out. it wasn't.
This causes the lghts on the left to go out. However, the light on the right stays on and warms up the fridge.
Solution.
Top section air grill. 5 1/4 hex screws.. remove the grill you'll notice door's light switch on right side. a steel spring attached to the switch. When fridge's hinge arm closes the arm pushes on this guy and pushing in the switch button and shuts off the lights.
you can move this with your finger.
In my case switch has a little purple button.
take two pair of 3 in needle nose pliers and CAREFULLY hold center of spring and bend the end nearest you to the left.
You don't have to go crazy Just a bit.
then get you camera ready and check out your work.
Results after you've succeded, replace your parts, and notice after 10 minutes the lights all come on, the alrms stop and the fridge cools normally.
and you saved 200.00

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

Yes depending on age. once changed doors never seal properly. because cabinet warps and seals flatten on one side. suggest to sell and buy another. you will never be happy if converted.

Switching door sides


some model you can, some you can't....if there are pre drilled holes with plastic plugs on the opposite side you can....you will need to purchase hinges and maybe handles.

Basically they needed to supply an additional door mount for the left hand side of the door as well as the right hand side. Problem now sorted. Poor instructions in the manual didn't help here!

Friction between the doors


look at the hinge on the top of the freezer door, unloosen the bolts that's holding the bracket, move the door a little bit to the left then tighten the bolts again. that should solve your problem.
