SOURCE: R/H door swings open too easily and hits counter behind door.

Hi LC,

Your fresh food lower door hinge cam assembly has failed and needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to replace, really... but you have to remove the FF door to get to it. <---which is VERY simple to do. But first thing first, right? You'll obviously need the replacement part on hand prior to the repair, so the part number is WR02X10779. You can see what it looks like here (you could also order it here if you don't have a local appliance parts retailer).

OK, now that you have the cam assy., Empty out all the goodies that you have stored in the FF door shelves. Then using a sturdy step stool, remove the upper hinge cover. Below the cover, you'll find three more screws, remove them (just so you know ahead of time... after you remove the last of the 3 screws, the door is no longer "attached" to the frame, so hold on to the door while removing the last one, OK?). Now all ya have to do is lean the door forward (from the top) and lift it off of the lower hinge/cam assembly.

Now that the door is off, all that's left to do is remove the old cam assy., install the new one and rebuild everything! Easy Breezy! You'll be in and out of this job within 20-30 minutes.

Oh yeah... one other thing. When you replace the door and are putting the top hinge back on, put all 3 screws in but don't tighten them yet. You'll need to "level" the door and THEN tighten them. Just lift the fridge door handle 'til the top of the door is level with the Freezer door, tighten the screws while holding the door in this position, deal? Cool.

Hope this helps!

I always get confused as to the door swing direction and I need to replace one of the handle sets. Before I order I need know if it is a right or left hand door. Can you help?


Yes, Here's how. It's all about the hinges. Facing the door from the outside, if the hinges are on the left, and the door swings to the inside, it is a left hand opening door. If it swings in with the hinges on the right, it would be a right hand opening door.
Best regards, --W/D--

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

On the door portion, look for a piece of metal or plastic that is sticking out perpendicular with the door. These protrusion interacts with a switch on the copier end, ensure that the plastic tab lines up correctly with the receded switch, and ensure that the switch is mounted correctly.

I want to switch the side that the door opens on my refrigerator. Everything looks simple enough except where the handle meets the door. My assumption is that once I unscrew the top portion of the...


This is generic because you did not include the make and model number. Had you provided that info we most likely could have provided you with the installation instructions that would show you exactly what to do.

Having said that... To release the plastic on the top of the TOP hinge use a butter knife on top of a putty knife so you don't dent or scratch the top. Gently lift in and outward and upward direction and it will come right off. Of this us a 2 horizontal swing door model the center hinge is inverted on the opposite side. Sometimes the lower hinge is also inverted. Other times you have to remove the hinge pin and place it on the other side of the hinge bracket. It is not a difficult task but it sure is helpful to have 2 people when installing the larger door. What ever you do leave the pliers off the job / at least away from the refrigerator. You might need them to switch the lower hinge pin installed position. The door handle usually on the lower portion (Screw part) may have a plastic insert covering the screw that you can gently remove with a small knife blade prying around the edges if the insert piece. Other handles it is exactly the opposite of what you stated... you slide the handle DOWN to expose the mounting screw.

If you need more help please include your make and model number and I will do my best to find exact model installation instructions for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How do i change which side the door opens


I have a different Bosch but changing the door over is straightforward.
1. Remove the plastic cover above the top door which fits over the controls. There are 2 screws under it holding it on. Lever it up from the back on top and it pops off.
2. Remove the hinge for the top door held on by 2 bolts
3. Take the top door off
4. Remove the central hinge between the doors held on by 2 screws
4. Lift the bottom door off
5. Pull off the bottm plastic cover
6. Move the post in the bottom hinge to the other side. It screws out
7 Replace the bottom door
8 Replace the central hinge on the other side (Take off any plastic caps covering the holes)
9. Unscrew the post on the top hinge (there are 2 possible holes left and right) and put it in the other hole.
10. Put the top door on
11. Bolt the top hinge back on the other side
12 Replace top cover and screws.
13 Move handles (unscrew and pull towards the door edge to get them off)

Dometic rm2804 door hinges are worn and plastic strip retainer is broken off. On the lower door the hinge pins fit into round metal guides. In turn, the metal guides are held in place on the door corners...


I had this problem. I reversed the decorative plastic strips, both ends of the strip have hinge pin holes, so the doors can open left or right. I put the TOP decorative plastic strip on the bottom and BOTTOM on top.

IGNITOR


To get to the ignitor, you must remove the front panel. To do this, first open the door and remove the two screws and plastic tabs that are directly across from the door hinges (left side if rt hand swing door and right side if left hand swing door). Next, support the door and remove the two screws from the hinges and remove the door. The front panel is now loose and will pivot down from the top out. Pull it out a couple inches then straight up and out of the way. You now have access to most all of the components internal of your dryer, including the ignitor. I know it's late, but didn't see an answer for it yet....and I have mine apart right now for the same problem (runs with no heat).
