Hi have the same problem - started about a year after I got it.
I took the covers off to look at it and there's nothing to adjust. It's simply a very poor design. The weakened spring mentioned in another posting is definitely part of the problem on my unit but because the center hinge is also frozen I cannot get all the covers off to get a good look at it. That makes it a real pain in the *** to get the mechanism apart to get a closer look at it so I just left it. Way to go Samsung.

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!

In to your question: No.
The problem with these units is that the covers are very flexible. I am to manually bent the cover back in shape.
Before you do that, Make sure the gasket is not iced up some where. Also, make sure the gasket is even in height. Your can buy a cover gasket for your unit, but if the cover is bent out of shape you are back to the same problem.
Depending on the brand, this "may" be possible. Look for a mounting bracket area on the side you want to change to. Is so, have someone help you, two person job!

The hinges can be loose in two different areas, but the most popular is the hinge attachment point behind the screen bezel. Remove the rubber screw covers from the bezel, remove the screws, take your finger nailas and from the inside of the bezel pull gently to the outside to release the catches on the screen lid. Start on one side and work your way around the screen until the bezel pops loose. Look at the bottom of the screen and you will see the hinge attachment points. Tighten them up. If you have some locktite this would be a good time to apply it, remove the screws one at a time and replace. To replace the bezel, always start at the bottom and work your way up.
My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.
Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.
a the base of the screen you may see some scews that cover access panels, open them up and you can tighten the little nut that tensions the hinge. I had a laptop that was shaky and I tightened the hinges and it was OK after that.
