Normally the Appliance Company from which you bought your refrigerator from would do the changing if you specified.

Call them and they may take are of the change as a customer courtesy.

How do you reverse the door

If its a side by side like the one showing on your post, I doubt you can unless there is a spot showing for under the door, and the water and electrical lines are long enough to switch.

How to change the doors on fridge freezer

Good day,
First. Save and mark all shims and bushings you remove in the process. As well remove all food from both doors.
1. Remove bracket from top of the refrigerator with the door closed.
Once removed, open top door with 2 hands about 1 foot.
Lift off.
2. Remove center bracket and remove as in step one.
3. The bottom bracket can be removed and mounted on the other side, reversing it's orientation. (pin sticking up).
4. remove both handles and remount on other side.
There are many plugs that must be removed, to uncover new screw holes. Some may be covered with emblems, but can be pried out with a small screw driver.
5. Reinstall in reverse order checking for alignment as you proceed.
6. Push in all removable plugs when complete.

How do I switch the doors to the other side on my fridge/freeze? I'm in a rental and the doors are hinged on the opposite side which is really inconvenient. But of course no owners manual or instructions...

I hope your landlord won't mind.
If there is a water/ice dispenser in the door it may not be possible due to routing of the water and electric lines. If the doors can be reversed there should be mounting holes at the top and bottom of the doors opposite where the hinges are now. (They may be closed with plastic plugs that can be pried out.) Checl also how the existing handles are mounted. There should also be holes that correspond to having the handles on the opposite side. (Sometimes they are disguised by a manufacturer's nameplate over them.) If there are such holes then start at the top hinge of the top door. Pry the (plastic) cover off if there is one. Remove the bolts/screws and remove the hinge support. There is a post on it that fits into the hole at the top of the door. Remove the door by lifting it up off the bottom hinge post. Keep track of any washers, etc. that may be there. Unscrew the middle hinge support. Remove the bottom door. Unscrew the bottom hinge support. Remove (and save) any plastic plugs and install the hinge supports and doors in reverse order (bottom to top) on the other side. If there are separate door stops on the bottoms of the doors near the hinges that keep the doors from swinging all the way open, make sure you move them also to the other side. Relocate the handles. Put the plastic plugs, nameplate, etc. in the old holes.
Depending on how long you have been using the refrigerator in its current setup it may take you several days to stop trying to open it in the wrong direction. With model number you could download a manual from the manufacturer's web site. It should have details about reversing the doors. Good luck.

Switching doors to open the opposite direction

Look on the other side of the door and see if there's a plug covering a hole even with where the door handle attaches on the opposite side. If so, I think you just unscrew the handle from the top of the fridge door or bottom of the freezer door an unhook the other end and reattach on the other side of the door. And unscrew and move the hinge to the opposite side. If your doors can be reversed the holes should arleady be in place. It didn't look overly difficult when the delivery guy changed mine when the fridge was delivered.

Cannot reverse door on Electrolux fridge freezer

Basically they needed to supply an additional door mount for the left hand side of the door as well as the right hand side. Problem now sorted. Poor instructions in the manual didn't help here!
