I have a kenmore upright freezer model 970-254326 bought in 2011 from sears. The door opens left to right but in my tiny apartment I NEED it to open from right to left just to put things in and get th

You should see some plastic plugs or holes for mounting bolts on the opposite side of the freezer case. The latch mechanism should adapt from one side to another.
You would remove the top hinge and then lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Then you would remove the bottom hinge and switch it to the other side. Place the door onto the bottom hinge and then install the top hinge on the other corner of the case to match.
You should be able to move the handle from one side to the other. The magnets in the doorseal should work as before to keep the door closed. The interior light is usually centered on the bottom to aid in reversing the door opening.

I still have not been given an answer to my question.

Plastic is brittle and the changes of temperature makes it even more brittle. While it isn't a common occurence, it does happen in the models with the thin plastic shells. I have normally seen that happen when the condenser grill (under the cabinet) is extremely dirty so the compressor can't discharge the coolant heat fast enough and then the cabinet exterior (especially on the right side) gets hot. The high exterior temperature and the cool to cold temperature on the inside, will cause cracking.

My 1992 honda accord ex leaks oil dripping from the oil filter housing onto the muffler that smokes when the car is running and smells. I have replaced teh o-ring for the housing twice but it still leaks....

if you have replaced the O ring already it either got pinched when tightening, or the housing itself is warped or has a hairline crack, check the o ring again, and inspect the actual housing

My culligan 30 good water system leaks--i have turned it off because of the mess--i would like to fix it and can i do this outside of the kitchen so i don't have to clean up so much water

Your question is difficult to answer until you determine where it is leaking. Some common places to check are inlet and outlet ports,are fittings going into these tight enough, are they to tight and have cracked the housing on filter . Is there rust or other debris lodged in pressure relief valve.Is it leaking on gasket.
I'm not trying to avoid your question I just need more info. If it's leaking around inlet or outlet ports then you can take these apart if they installed a union. If so then you can remove fittings and tape with several wraps of teflon tape and use pipe joint compound also if you like. If copper or brass fittings were used for installation they may have cracked the housing where they screw into. Sometime you can't see hairline cracks unless fittigs are installed.If it is leaking around base gasket you can remove filter housing and clean gasket and both sealing surfaces. Sometimes a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly on the gasket will help it seal
If it's leaking out of pressure relief you will need to remove filter top and wash out with clean water to clear any rust or mineral particles.
Sorry I can't be more specific but I hope this helps some and if there is anything else I can do let me know. Thank you

Leak at filter

Nope. You can't bypass the tube style filter... it's the housing that cracked. That has to be removed and replaced. Sorry to give ya bad news, Mariner.
