The door hinges usually can be made to open either right or left handed. Look on top of the freezer to see if there are metal caps covering the screw holes in the cabinet. Same for the door handle. If you find them just remove the caps, remove the screws and move the hinge to the other side. Use the caps to cover the holes left from the original position of the hinge. Same for the door. If there are no indication of the extra holes in the cabinet, then fliping the door is impossible.

How do I replace the lights in my freezer

Turn off the power to the refrigerator/freezer by flipping the appropriate switch in your breaker panel. Alternatively, unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet.
Open the freezer door. Remove any items from the shelf directly under the light shield, then remove the shelf.
Press down on the top, front edge of the light shield until the locking tabs slip out of the slots. Swivel the light shield downward slightly to release it. Pull the shield out of the freezer compartment and set it aside.
Turn the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Insert the GE replacement bulb into the light socket and twist it clockwise.
Reattach the light shield by sliding it into place. Gently push the tabs into the original slots.
Insert the shelf into the freezer and reload it with the frozen food removed earlier.
Close the freezer door. Restore power to the refrigerator by flipping on the breaker or plugging it into the wall outlet.

Door of intergated fridge wont shut

This is a really open question but I assume you have checked for items inside causing obstruction.
That done now look at the hinges, it is possible one or either of them have become dislodged possibly from the bolts coming loose or from being shut with a something sticking out inside.
Another possibility is the magnetic strip around the door has come off, its an easy fix just push the little poppers back in the holes on the door.
More info would help answer the question.

My new frigidaire freezer the digital display on outside of door flashes off what to do?

Hello - Typically "OF" indicates that the freezer is turn off. To activate freezer, press UP three times until display shows "1" then press UP to desired setting. If it will not allow you to change setting and freezer continues to be off, try resetting the freezer by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn it on. If "OF" continues to display, the unit could possibly have a communication problem with the electronic control assembly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Icemaker will not flip the new ice out from the tray. 25" whirlpool side by side-water and ice on front door A new ice maker does the same thing

This sounds like a temperature problem. Check freezer for 0 to 10 degrees.
Most im's will not flip until temp reaches at least 10 or 15 degrees for most fridges.

Thank you for using fixya

Yes you can change the way that the doors open. You will see on the very top that there is a hinge screwed into the top of the fridge and also below the freezer door you will see two hinges, then on the bottom of the fridge is the last hinge. You will see all the new holes on the fridge as to where to locate and place the doors properly. This is a easy job to complete just make sure that you do this one door at a time to make sure not to confuse the hinges. Please rate

How can I switch the door from left opening to right opening on an LG electrocool (top) fridge (bottom) freezer? The user manual says nothing about it.

Look at the top and bottom of the door. There should be two holes near the edge. If there is then you just remove the hinges by the screws and place them on the other side of the fridge and flip the door over. At that point your shelves should be able to be flipped also. But if the manual does not say anything then your doors may not be able to be switched

How do i change my freezer door to open the other way

you will need to take the upper hinge off first, then the door will lift off the bottom hinge. Then take off bot hinge and move both hinges to the holes on the other side. As far as the handel goes, you may need to flip it over or switch the handel to the other side

How do I clear the er if message on the door? Everything seems to work fine.

I unplugged the refrigerator (flipped the breaker) and let the refrigerator sit opened for four hours. That apparently allowed the ice that was freezing the fan to melt. All is now well.
