Can I reverse the door?
Most of the time you can. If you look on top of you refrigerator, and you see some button covers on the side opposite from your hinge, you should be able to reverse the door. Second, open the doors and see if there are button covers on the face of the door frame opposite the hinge. If you have both, you should be able to change them. You usually will need a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver and usually a 3/8" socket or nut driver. Start with the freezer door and take the hinge loose on top and swing the door open and lift up on it and remove it. Next take the middle hinge loose so that the top of the refrigerator door is loose and you can then lift up on it and remove it. Take the grill off of the bottom front of your refrigerator and you will see where the bottom hinge is located. Remove the hinge and move it to the opposite side and then loosen the swivel pin and move it to the opposite hole and re-tighten. On the middle hinge you will need to turn it over from the direction it was originally mounted so that you can re-install it. You will also need to switch some pieces on the bottom of each door to the opposite sides so that each door will operate properly. Once all pieces are switched, including the handles, just re-assemble in reverse order that you took it apart. Hope this helps!
