Tough but you need to open the door all the way stick a small screw in the hole on the side of the hinge that is still on then partially close the door this will alow for you to remove the door and then you can push open with your hand the other hinge and stick a screw in the hole on the side this will keep the hinge from closing on you then reinstall the door

Hi. I have rust on my sr-s27fta Samsung refrigerator and I'm trying to take down the door in order to fix it. Do you know how can I do that?? Thank you


There's a plastic cover on the top door hinge. Pop it off and remove the screws that fasten it to the top of the fridge. Pull it off and don't loose the washers on the hinge pin. Lift the door up off the lower hinge pin. If it's the freezer door, do the same but take off the lower toe guard grille to expose the water tube going to the water dispenser. Separate the hose at the in line connector at the bottom of the door before you lift the door up and off the hinge pin.

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.

How do i change the door so it opens from the right


Check the top and bottom of your fridge door at the furthest edge from the hinge. Do you see a plastic plug/insert, usually round that looks like they can be levered out with a thin blade? These cover holes that a hinge pin can be inserted into. At the hinge side (top and bottom in the same position as the aforementioned plug/insert) is where the hinge is attached to the door. If you remove the hinges from the fridge they should then come away from the door and you can swap them over to the other side and replace the plug/insert in the holes left where the hinge pins were originally fitted. The door should then be fitted to the other side of the fridge in holes similarly covered by a cap that you put in the holes left where the hinge was fixed.
I hope that makes sense, because I've just read it and confused myself I think.. ;)

How to change door opening to other side


Hi Eleanor,
Without a specific model number I can only give general information, but, Kenmore fridges are all about the same, so here we go. Take a close look at your unit. You should observe several small plugs inserted on the side of the doors that don't have the hinges currently mounted. These inserts cover threaded holes that are used to mount the hardware for the hinges. If your fridge has two doors one above the other. remove the top hinge hardware, lift the door up off of the bottom hinge pin. then remove the bottom hardware on the top door. Typically the mounting screws are either phillips head or 1/4" hex head machine screws. You should now see that there is now a threaded hole in the same position on that side as the plug in caps on the other side. remove the caps from the one side and insert them in their respective holes on the other side. the door hinges will attach to the now exposed holes on the side that the plugs were removed from. But not yet. First remove the top hinge hardware on the bottom door, lift the bottom door off of the bottom hinge, and then remove the bottom door hardware relocating the bottom hardware to the other side. Install the bottom door onto the hinge pin of the bottom door hinge. Close the door then install the top hinge on the bottom door. Next install the bottom hinge and hardware for the top door, set the top door on the installed hinge, close the door add install the top door top hinge and hardware next. Same with the door handles. All of this info applies to the doors and the fridge itself.

How do I change the door from left hand to right hand opening


on the top right hand side of the refrigerator you should see little screw cover caps,, also on the door and on the bottom of the door. remove these caps -- now remove the screws that hold the hinges for the door and just switch everything over to the other side. everything is a mirror image of the other side --- where there is a screw that holds the hinge on one side -- there will be a screw hole on the other side that is covered by a finish cap,,, same thing with the hinge pin hole. tighten everything up and use the finish caps to plug up the now exposed holes and there you go -- right hand opening door.
if you have any troubles -- just write me back here and I will do my best to walk you through it.

The right door of my Kenmore side by side


You may have a broken cam riser which is located at bottom hinge. Compare the 2 hinges with the doors open. The right side is probably missing 1 piece.
