Remove Doors on Side by Side Kenmore Elite Refrigerator with water tube

I need to remove the doors of my Kenmore Elite side-by-side refrigerator. There is a water feed tube going into the door from the the bottom. There is also a connector that allows the tube from the door to connect to the supply line going under the refrigerator.

My question is how do I disconnect the tube so I can remove the door?

I had the same problem, it took me an hour. The connector allowing the tube from the door is connected to the back of the refrigerator. You must go to the back and unhook the white tube from the connector, then it will easily come off the refrigerators door. Hopefully it works for you.

SAFELY REMOVING DOORS FOR SHIPPING


Good Morning Jill,

I see that you are trying to remove the doors on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23R4A, for shipping purposes. Below are the instructions you will need to follow for both the refrigerator and freezer doors.


DOOR REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS:
If it is necessary to move the refrigerator through narrow doorways, follow these steps to remove the doors.
IMPORTANT: Before you begin, turn your freezer and fresh food controls to "O" and remove electrical power cord from the wall outlet. Remove any food from the door shelves.

1. Disconnect electrical supply.
2. Open both doors, then remove toe grille.
3. Close doors.

To Remove Refrigerator Door:

1. Remove top hinge cover screw on refrigerator door and remove cover.
2. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
3. Remove top hinge and lift refrigerator door off bottom hinge pin. Set door aside.
4. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
5. Reverse this procedure to reinstall refrigerator door.

To Remove Freezer Door:

1. Disconnect water line coming from lower hinge of freezer door at connection located under front of freezer: Press outer ring against face of fitting, then pull to remove tube.
2. Remove top hinge cover screw on freezer door and remove cover.
3. Disconnect wiring harness connector plug at top hinge: place your thumbs on flat sides of each connector and bend both parts back and forth, then with firm grasp, pull both pieces apart.
4. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
5. Remove top hinge, allowing wiring harness to pull through hinge and lift freezer door off of bottom hinge pin. Lay door down flat to avoid kinking water line.
6. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
7. Reverse this procedure to reinstall freezer door.

When both doors have been reinstalled, connect water line by inserting tube and push until mark touches face of fitting, replace toe grille and plug in electrical power cord. Turn both temperature controls to center position. Adjust settings as necessary. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

it may be easies to remove doors, swap hinges to oposite side of doors and fridge.

How do I remove the doors?


Refrigerator side is easy. Remove the top hinge cover and then the hinge. Lift it off the bottom hinge and set it to the side. The freezer side is a little more entailed as it has a water and electric connection. Remove the lower kickplate (Grille) and then you will see a plastic tube coming out the bottom of the hinge. Follow it to the connector and removed it. A little water might come out but it will stop. Next, go to the top hinge and remove the hinge cover. Unplug the electric connection and then remove the top hinge. Lift the door off the bottom hinge sliding the plastic tubing through the hinge...This should do it. If you need further asssistance, we are here.

Remove doors


on top of the refrig is a plastic cap that snaps over the hinge. pry this off. there are some small bolts with 5/16" hex head bolts. remove these and the door should lift off the bottom pin. if you wish to change the opening direction of the door, you need to change the bottom pin location to the other side of the fridge. there should be some plastic plugs in the door mullion on the opposite side of the original position which you pry out. unscrew the bottom hinge and refasten it to the new location. same goes for the upper hinge pin and its hardware.

2 year old kenmore elite water leaking in freezer area


Does this happen when unit is in a defrost?? If so, sounds like the drain line is clogged.The hose and pan are located under the unit.You can access this by removing the cardboard back cover.Find the drain line tube.I'm sure the drain opening at the evaporater is iced over.You will have to unplug the unit and keep the doors open to defrost.(Removing product in unit will decrease defrost time.) Maybe an hour to an hour and a half.Could be longer!! Try using a wet/dry vac to clear.
