Question about Refrigerators
This is generic because you did not include the make and model number. Had you provided that info we most likely could have provided you with the installation instructions that would show you exactly what to do.
Having said that... To release the plastic on the top of the TOP hinge use a butter knife on top of a putty knife so you don't dent or scratch the top. Gently lift in and outward and upward direction and it will come right off. Of this us a 2 horizontal swing door model the center hinge is inverted on the opposite side. Sometimes the lower hinge is also inverted. Other times you have to remove the hinge pin and place it on the other side of the hinge bracket. It is not a difficult task but it sure is helpful to have 2 people when installing the larger door. What ever you do leave the pliers off the job / at least away from the refrigerator. You might need them to switch the lower hinge pin installed position. The door handle usually on the lower portion (Screw part) may have a plastic insert covering the screw that you can gently remove with a small knife blade prying around the edges if the insert piece. Other handles it is exactly the opposite of what you stated... you slide the handle DOWN to expose the mounting screw.
If you need more help please include your make and model number and I will do my best to find exact model installation instructions for you.
