The hinges usually have a few screws. The ones at the bottom can be loosened and repositioned to fit better.

How do I change freezer door opening side?


Hi.

Details on how to change the fridge door opening side depend on the appliance model.If this is a chest unit, you will simply need to rotate the unit. On most upright units the general procedure to change door opening orientation is more or less the one ilustrated below:

  1. Disconnect power from the appliance.
  2. Get to the top side of the unit, and remove the hinge plate. This is usually held by two Torx or Philips screws. You may need to help yourself with a putty knife to remove a protective panel covering the plate. Be careful not to damage any part.
  3. Remove top hinge and put it on one side.
  4. After removing the plate you may need to remove the plastic clip located at the top on the handle side of the door, oppositely to the old hinge side. Use the putty knife to pry up and remove the plastic clip.
  5. Open the door and lift it from the lower hinge pivot.On many fridges you will have to remove the bottom hinge too, often held by two screws, and covered with a proective pane, to free the door before removing it
  6. Carefully place the door on the floor.
  7. Remove protective panels on top and bottom on handle side of the frige cavity, reinstall the hinges on handle side position, swapping them with the protective panels.
  8. Remove the door pivot and mount it on the opposite side.
  9. On the door disassemble and refit handle or any other part if needed.

The precise and complete procedure is usually illustrated on the appliance user manual. If you need manual or schematics, try asking a new Fixya question. Ensure that you are providing full model number, as printed on service tag.
To get more detailed info you can also try calling the appliance manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.


Regards.

Refrigerator side of side by side, the door will not open, no visible damage to outside of refrigerator, this is an older model refrigerator Model 52212100


There is most likely a inside shelf out of position and holding the door closed.
Remove the hinge screws from the top corner and lift the door off the bottom hinge to open it.
Check all shelves before re-attaching the door.

Right side refrigerator door of side by side does not lift when opened. Part on bottom lift appears to be broken. Is it fixable.


Good day,
The cam assembly on the bottom of the door has broken.
Common problem. With the complete make, and model number, go to any appliance parts house that sells parts for your brand. They'll know what you need.
To replace, remove all food from the door. Remove the top bracket of the door, and lift the door off. Replace defective parts, and re-assemble.

Refrig is frezzing


Your model a WR49X10091 Electric Controled Air Damper between the freezer and the fresh food section. Sometimes they get stuck open and sometimes the electric motor malfunctions. Most times a little frost will hang them up. Until we can see that we can get this part opening and closing properly we will need to unplug your refrigerator and examine the inside of the back of the freezer behind the rear panel to see if there happens to be frost stopping the door from regulating temperatures. I will be here waiting for your comments and results. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker door stays open. How do I take off front panel to revel parts?


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door only . Between the dispensor grate and the dispensor cover , inside at the bottom inside dispensor , insert a butter knife and push down and inward , to pop the bottom of dispensor cover outward , on each inner side . This will pop the 2 plastic clips on the cover off . Lift the cover , to pass the plastic retainer tabs . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor . There are 2 screws holding the white housing which has the switches mounted onto it . Remove these screws , and slide the housing foreward and lift . You should be able to see the complete flap door and the spring and pin , to decide what is causing the door to stay open . If you come back with the found problem , and the model number , I would be able to give you the part number(s) needed .

Door on fridge side has droped 10mm the plastic washer has worn away i think .Can i get a spare please its situated at the bottom of door


Take the model number ( you didn't list it here ) to a parts house and tell them you need the door closer for the frig door . To install , remove the 3 screws holding the top door hinge located under tho top hinge cover , and lift door off bottom hinge . Remove all food items from door first . The closer should come with a lower hinge and the piece which attaches to the door . If not , tell them you need the door piece also. Or the kit may come without the hinge , but , with both the hinge piece and the door piece in the package .
