I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.

How do you replace drives side exeior door handel for 95geoprizm


1) Remove the plug inside the interior armrest and remove phillips screw.
2) Remove armrest and two screws that hold door panel to door frame.
3) Pop the outer cover off the interior door handle.
4) Remove the interior lock knob and remove door panel by popping out tabs connected to door frame and lifting up off of window ledge.
5) Remove the two nuts holding exterior handle in place.
6) Disconnect the L shaped linkage from the handle. The trick to getting the L shaped linkage into the new handle is to feed L shaped metal pole through hole in door where exterior handle was, leaving the lower end of this linkage in its slot.
7) Feed the end of L shaped pole through the plastic 'hinge' in new handle by folding the hinge over and pushing the end of the L through both sides of the plastic hinge at once. slide the lower loop of the plastic hinge down the L shaped pole to secure pole to handle.
8) Place new handle into door and reverse the process to reinstall interior panel.

Hope this helps Tim

SWITCHING THE DOOR HINGE


if you open the door and look to the opposite side you will see to white pieces, take the screws out and they will come out, do the same with the hinges and once the screws are off the hinges lift the door open and out, switch the hinges and the white pieces. Door is now reversed. Good Luck Tim

Can't find any instructions - can I reverse the door from the left side to the right side?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The answer is YES you can reverse the door.

Here is the text of how to reverse the door:


DOOR ASSEMBLY & HINGES
The door assembly is reversible. It contains an inertial vibration damper comprised of a steel plate suspended with springs. The
damper is designed to tune out excessive vibrations generated by the machine during the spin cycle. Replacement inner door liners are
shipped with the vibration damper in place.
REMOVAL
1. Open the door and remove the center screw of each hinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening.
2. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the hinge area slightly. Draw the door assembly away from the machine. This will disengage the hinges from the slots in the
front shroud (Figure 5-1). If the hinges bind, press out on the plastic shroud near the hinge toward the cabinet.
Figure 5-1
REVERSAL
1. Repeat the above steps and, remove the corresponding sheet metal spacers on the opposite side.
2. Remove the hinges from the door and relocate them to the other side of the door.
3. Remount the door into the new slots and secure with one screw into each hinge.
4. Mount the sheet metal spacers onto the side where the hinges were previously to cover the hinge slots in the front shroud.

That is the text without the whole service manual pictures.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I mant to reverse the opening swing of my refrigerator doors


You have to remove the doors, swap the hinges to the other side. Start by taking the top hinge off the freezer door (pop the plastic cover off the hinge to reveal the screws). If it has handles (some don't) you will need to swap them over as well. The screws are under plastic covers on the ends. There will be plastic plugs in the holes that will need to be removed and placed into the holes you took the screws out of. This is assuming your model has reversible doors. Most do, but some don't.

We want to switch the door so it opens on the other side? Model # 596.72212200


Ii can not locate specific instructions or a manual for the model number you gave. Here is a general description of how to change the doors: If the doors can be reversed there should be mounting holes at the top and bottom of the doors opposite where the hinges are now. (They may be closed with plastic plugs that can be pried out.) Check also how the existing handles are mounted. There should be holes that correspond to having the handles on the opposite side. (Sometimes they are disguised by a manufacturer's nameplate over them.) If there are such holes then start at the top hinge of the door. Pry the (plastic) cover off if there is one. Remove the bolts/screws and remove the hinge support. There is a post on it that fits into the hole at the top of the door. Remove the door by lifting it up off the bottom hinge post. Keep track of any washers, etc. that may be there. Unscrew the bottom hinge support. Remove (and save) any plastic plugs and install the hinge supports and doors in reverse order (bottom to top) on the other side. If there are separate door stops on the bottoms of the doors near the hinges that keep the doors from swinging all the way open, make sure you move them also to the other side. Relocate the handles. Put the plastic plugs, nameplate, etc. in the old holes.
