Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have this model westinghouse fridge which currently opens to the right but are moving house and the fridge needs to open to the left. I can see holes on the left side with white plugs in them so it looks the door could hinge on the left but there are no holes on the top surface. Als the door handles are fixed so would we need to flip the doors (its upper fridge/lower freezer model) completely upside down? If so, instead of the handles being were the fridge and freezer door meet - they would actually be at the top and at the bottom which would be too high and too low.Can we buy a conversion kit for this model?

Yes depending on age. once changed doors never seal properly. because cabinet warps and seals flatten on one side. suggest to sell and buy another. you will never be happy if converted.

The MBR1952KES Has the hinges on the right only, you need to order a custom made door to move hinges on the left.

We have a Samsung side by side fridge model number SRS 596NP. It is a double door (side by side) fridge/freezer. After moving house the top right hand door does not seal properly and is slightly lower than...


  1. Anytime you move a fridge there is a chance that the doors will slide of balance so to speak, the simple fix is usually to readjust them by tightening/loosening the screws on the mount at the top of the door(usually under a cap that is the same color as your fridge). You want the door open when you adjust the level of the door and depending on your model the bottom may need to be adjusted as well. It should be pretty simple just open the door and hold it up a bit to about where you want it to sit and tighten your screws on the hinge, hopefully that helps.

Freezer fan is noisey and can t find serial number


The number you will need is the model number. On side by side models there are a few places to look. 1- inside fridge on right or left wall. 2- Open fridge door and look up near the top front lip. 3- Open both doors and look on body of fridge under the doors. 4- Fridge door sometimes there is a sticker right when you open. Mostly you are looking for a silver sticker or silver plate. It gives you a model number and serial number. If you need further assistance please mail me back.

Re:Model W210RWO Serial # LA23214707 Repairman told us compressor on this fridge is defunct. Fridge was in our basement and when we moved into this house, the movers had great difficulty getting it...


once you reclaim the freon the only thing left will be the oil if the fridge has been upright all the oil will be in the compressor cut the lines going to the compressor and crimp them off then remove the compressor and some fridges have whats called an accumulator a small tank near the compressor cut the lines and crimp them off before removing it and you will be ok to demo and move.

I have a westinghouse freestyle fridge and it is leaking water seem to be coming from behind the tempreature adjusting knob. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks Michael model RJ452T-R


Open the fridge door, locate the dial which moderates the temperature located on the 'ceiling' of the fridge. Remove the light cover, remove the globe. Unscrew the two screws which hold the dial housing to the ceiling of the fridge, let this housing hang from the ceiling in the wires. This will expose a red funnel shaped tray, gently lift the tray and pull it out, you will most likely find the tray drain is blocked with gunk, clean and reinstall. Assembly is reverse of removal.
