If you don't have the manual, go to Samsung's website and download the manual. It explains how to remove and adjust the doors and bottom drawer.

4. Lift the refrigerator door off of the bottom hinge and set aside.

6. Loosen two outside screws on opposite side of refrigerator, remove inside screw and install center hinge.
7. Remove two screws on bottom hinge with 3/8" socket wrench.
8. Install bottom hinge on opposite side with the two screws removed from Step 7.
9. Unscrew the bottom hinge pin using adjustable wrench. Move hinge pin to other hold in hinge and tighten with adjustable wrench.

How do you completely remove the freezer door? There is a waterline running...


Many people often stress over laying a refrigerator or freezer down in the back of a truck in order to move it. It has happened many, many, times that one of these appliances is laid down in order to move it, only to find that the compressor is ruined within a few hours after having plugged the unit back in.

By the same token, it is hard to just dead lift one of these appliances into the back of the truck without tipping the unit on it's side.

The purpose of this trick, or tip, is to avail anyone of what to look for should they need to move one of these unit's.

The reason the compressors fail is lack of oil in the compressor, caused when the compressor is oriented where the oil can go run into the disharge tube which is headed to the condensor coil. Most all modern domestic refrigeration compressors are built as where the enclosure is at the condensing pressure, which is why they get real hot when they run. The high pressure gas is easily pushed into the condensor as the compressor runs. But, if the appliance that the refrigerator is in is tipped over where that tube is on the bottom, then the oil runs in there as well. And when the appliance is stood back up, the piping usually does not allow all the oil to run back into the compressor. If the compressor is started before the oil has a chance to run back, then it get's pushed by the hot refrigerant further into the condensor coil, and on to the evaporator where it becomes cold and thick, to the point that it doesn't want to return to the compressor. This makes the compressor run on low oil, and after doing this for a few hours, it seizes up.

So, in order to lay the unit down, all you need to do is look at the compressor tubing. THere will be three pipes or tubes coming out of the compressor. On eis short, and crimped, then soldered closed. That is the service tubing where the unit is charged at the factory. One is the suction tubing that is the tube returning from inside the refrigerator. And the last is the hot gas discharge tubing, going to the condensor coil. In most all deomestic refrigerators, the suction and discharge tubes come off the same side of the compressor, which is the right hand side of the compressor as you stand at the back of the refrigerator looking at the compressor. That means if you lay the appliance on the left hand side, when standing in the same position, that oil will not have any place to run to, and will stay inside the compressor. You can lay or tilt the appliance on that side all you want, aadn never have any issues when starting the unit up after moving. And you can start tyhe unit up immediatley. You don't have to wait for 8 hours or anything.

Now, if you find you did an oops and laid the applicance the wrong way, then be concerned, there is a way to save the unit. Stand the unit up and wait for 6 hours or so before pluggin the unit in. Plug it in, and allow to run for 2-3 minutes. Unplug, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Repeat this for 8-10 times, then allow it to run for 30 minutes or so. DO this a couple of times, and you should be good to go.

SAFELY REMOVING DOORS FOR SHIPPING


Good Morning Jill,

I see that you are trying to remove the doors on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23R4A, for shipping purposes. Below are the instructions you will need to follow for both the refrigerator and freezer doors.


DOOR REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS:
If it is necessary to move the refrigerator through narrow doorways, follow these steps to remove the doors.
IMPORTANT: Before you begin, turn your freezer and fresh food controls to "O" and remove electrical power cord from the wall outlet. Remove any food from the door shelves.

1. Disconnect electrical supply.
2. Open both doors, then remove toe grille.
3. Close doors.

To Remove Refrigerator Door:

1. Remove top hinge cover screw on refrigerator door and remove cover.
2. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
3. Remove top hinge and lift refrigerator door off bottom hinge pin. Set door aside.
4. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
5. Reverse this procedure to reinstall refrigerator door.

To Remove Freezer Door:

1. Disconnect water line coming from lower hinge of freezer door at connection located under front of freezer: Press outer ring against face of fitting, then pull to remove tube.
2. Remove top hinge cover screw on freezer door and remove cover.
3. Disconnect wiring harness connector plug at top hinge: place your thumbs on flat sides of each connector and bend both parts back and forth, then with firm grasp, pull both pieces apart.
4. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
5. Remove top hinge, allowing wiring harness to pull through hinge and lift freezer door off of bottom hinge pin. Lay door down flat to avoid kinking water line.
6. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
7. Reverse this procedure to reinstall freezer door.

When both doors have been reinstalled, connect water line by inserting tube and push until mark touches face of fitting, replace toe grille and plug in electrical power cord. Turn both temperature controls to center position. Adjust settings as necessary. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Most of the water lines have a quick connect fitting down at the bottom under the unit. Open doors, remove kick plate and follow line back. Should have a connection in that area.

Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch


there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

Door panel and bezel removal


There are two screws in the door pull (which face straight down) - remove those first.

Next remove bezel around inside door handle. Carefully use screwdriver to push in on four tabs (at the four compass headings) and pull out on bezel. These are easy to break as they get brittle with age.

Start at bottom of door (using a trim removal tool) and pry out door fasteners (white posts which fit into friction fittings in door). You have to pry pretty hard. Use trim removal tool to apply force right at fastener. There are 3-4 on bottom of door and two on each side.

Once all the fasterners are loose. Carefully look behind door and remove the doors light and speaker connectors. The Speaker Connector can be hard to get to - you may need some help holding panel. Be careful because the wires to speakers are delicate and easy to break.

Once the panel is loose - roll down windows and pull up on door panel. It has a lip that fits over top of the door opening. You must pull straight up to disengage it.

That's it all done - not really hard but will seem a little strange at first. Take your time and be careful and the seconds one will take much less. I've had to remove all four of my door panels on my 1999 K1500 to replace window and lock motors. But, after 200,000 miles the 'burb is going strong.
