Hello,

Unplug the refrigerator and remove all food and utility bins from the doors. With the door open, remove the grille from the bottom of the refrigerator. Close the door.

Step 2
Remove the cover from the top hinge with the putty knife. Remove the three screws underneath, then remove the hinge. Take off the freezer door.

Step 3
Remove the three screws from the center hinge, then remove the hinge. Take off the refrigerator door.

Step 4
Remove the two screws from the bottom hinge, then remove the hinge. Replace with the new hinge and insert the two screws.

Step 5
Seat the refrigerator door on the bottom hinge and close the door. Fasten the new center hinge with the three old screws.

Step 6
Seat the freezer door on the center hinge and close the door. Fasten the top hinge and replace the top hinge cover.

Step 7
Replace the base grille, and plug the refrigerator back in.

Good luck in solving the problem with the solutions provided....

The top door is frosting on the inside, changed the gasket same problem. It seems the door is sagging down a bit.


You might try loosening the screws on the hinge on top of your refrigerator and then lift up on the corner of the door away from the hinges and then re-tighten the screws. That will help put your door back in alignment and hopefully end your frosting. Hope this helps!

Tip

How to Reverse Your Refrigerator Door (Most units)


1. Remove the toe grille.
2. Remove top hinge cover if available. Trace around the hinge with a soft lead pencil. This makes the re-installation easier. Remove top hinge and lift door off the center hinge pin, and set the door aside.
3. Unscrew the center hinge pin using an adjustable wrench and save for reassembly. Ensure that the plastic washer stays on hinge pin.
4. Lift the refrigerator door off of the bottom hinge and set aside.
5. Remove center hinge and shim by removing inside screw and loosening two outside screws enough to allow hinge and shim to slide out. Tighten screws.
6. Loosen two outside screws on opposite side of refrigerator, remove inside screw and install center hinge.
7. Remove two screws on bottom hinge with 3/8" socket wrench.
8. Install bottom hinge on opposite side with the two screws removed from Step 7.
9. Unscrew the bottom hinge pin using adjustable wrench. Move hinge pin to other hold in hinge and tighten with adjustable wrench.
10. Reverse door handles.
11. Move freezer and refrigerator door stops to opposite side. Before starting screws, use an awl to puncture the foam.
12. Position refrigerator door onto bottom hinge pin and screw center hinge pin through center hinge into the top of the door. Close refrigerator door to help align hinge hole.
13. Tighten center hinge pin with adjustable wrench.
14. Remove cabinet and hinge hold plugs and move to opposite side.
15. Lower freezer door onto center hinge pin (if you have a separate freezer door).
16. Close freezer door. Have an assistant lift up on opposite side of the door while tightening screws to install top hinge.
17. Flip top grille and reinstall.
18. Plug in electrical power cord and turn refrigerator temperature control to center position. Adjust setting as needed.

Hi, I have Frigidaire side by side doors refrigerator about 5 years old. refrigerator door knocks when when I close the door . Is that adjustment problem or some parts worn out and have to be...


It is probably a cracked lower bushing or loose lower hinge. If the hinge is tight, then the bushing is probably bad. It is not a hard part to change. Empty the door then then remove the top door hinge. The door should lift off the lower hinge and expose the bushing. Put in a new bushing, grease it a litte with some Vaseline or equivelent and reinstall the door. This link has an exploded view and part # of the bushing (#22 on the diagram). http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5150332&diagram_id=1239787#d1239787

I want to switch the doors from left to the right side


Hi, The parts are interchangeable (hinges & handles)
You should have some small plastic plugs/caps that are covering the holes already drilled for the change. Once you remove the doors and then remove the plugs, just reinsert the plugs into the old holes and switch hinges and door handles to the opposite spots.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Refrigerator door has stopped closing automatically


You may have a worn door bearing.  Have a look.  Both sides have the same hinge assembly for comparison.  Also possible that the hinges have come loose.
Clean out the hinge by spraying on a little WD 40 first...it may fix everything.

Right Door is making loud popping noise


After reading these posts, I fixed my refrigerator door in less than 5 minutes. The little black plastic cam on the bottom hinge was loose. To fix it, take the hinge cover off of the top with an 8mm socket, and remove the three 8mm screws holding the top hinge on. Remove the door by lifting up off of the bottom hinge and set it aside. On the bottom hinge is a black plastic cam held on by an 8mm screw. The screw on mine was really loose. Tightening it and putting the door back on made it work like new. You probably don't have a bad cam, just a loose one.
