Normally doors on refrigerators are removed beginning with or at the top. There may be a cover over the top hinge which can be popped off to expose the screws or hex head bolts that hold it in place. Once the top hinge is removed the top door can be lifted up and removed. Next remove the top hinge of the bottom door, lift the door to remove. Finally remove the bottom hinge. Place all parts in a secure place so they do not become lost. Re-assembly is in the reverse order.

Good Morning Jill,

I see that you are trying to remove the doors on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23R4A, for shipping purposes. Below are the instructions you will need to follow for both the refrigerator and freezer doors.

If it is necessary to move the refrigerator through narrow doorways, follow these steps to remove the doors.
IMPORTANT: Before you begin, turn your freezer and fresh food controls to "O" and remove electrical power cord from the wall outlet. Remove any food from the door shelves.

1. Disconnect electrical supply.
2. Open both doors, then remove toe grille.
3. Close doors.

To Remove Refrigerator Door:

1. Remove top hinge cover screw on refrigerator door and remove cover.
2. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
3. Remove top hinge and lift refrigerator door off bottom hinge pin. Set door aside.
4. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
5. Reverse this procedure to reinstall refrigerator door.

To Remove Freezer Door:

1. Disconnect water line coming from lower hinge of freezer door at connection located under front of freezer: Press outer ring against face of fitting, then pull to remove tube.
2. Remove top hinge cover screw on freezer door and remove cover.
3. Disconnect wiring harness connector plug at top hinge: place your thumbs on flat sides of each connector and bend both parts back and forth, then with firm grasp, pull both pieces apart.
4. Trace around hinge with soft lead pencil. This will make it easier to realign doors when they are replaced.
5. Remove top hinge, allowing wiring harness to pull through hinge and lift freezer door off of bottom hinge pin. Lay door down flat to avoid kinking water line.
6. Remove bottom hinge, if necessary.
7. Reverse this procedure to reinstall freezer door.

When both doors have been reinstalled, connect water line by inserting tube and push until mark touches face of fitting, replace toe grille and plug in electrical power cord. Turn both temperature controls to center position. Adjust settings as necessary. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

this are the instruction to follow below

1.Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels usescrews and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the toolsyou need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached withscrews and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Cardoor panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flatheadscrewdriver.

2Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These areusually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes nearthe door lights.

3 Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts thathold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, prygently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings popout.

4.Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows.The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiringharness from the back and place it to the side.
5Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Lookbehind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metalclip that holds the crank in place.

.Remove the clip and pull the crankoff.Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in thecenter. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of thehandle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove thehandle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you justunclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.

7.Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner doorpanel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle andunscrew separately from the door handle.

8.Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry onthe bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up tocompletely remove the door panel.

    Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch

    there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

    We'd like to change the door from left opening to right opening on our refrigerator

    Good day,
    Before proceeding there are a lot of buttons and cover emblems that cover screw holes. Remove by prying off with a small screw driver as needed. As well, remove all food etc.
    As well, keep track of all bushing and shims holding the door hinges in place.

    1. With the top door closed, remove the top bracket. Open the door with both hands, open approx. 1 foot and lift off.
    2. Remove the middle bracket, and remove bottom door as in step one.
    3. Remove and reinstall handles on the opposite side of each door.
    4. The bottom support bracket must be removed, and remounted on the opposite side, with the pin sticking up.
    5. Reinstall in reverse order using bushing and shims as needed to assure correct alignment.

    Want to move whirlpool american side by side fridge freezer but need to remove doors how is this done

    1. If you just need to gain a little space you can simply remove the door handles. They should just lift (or slide) up with moderate force and can be removed.

    2. If you only need to move through one door in a building you might be able to open the doors enough to make the unit clear the door you are trying to move the unit through. This would take care.

    3. If you really do need to remove the doors, be sure to disconnect the water line at the rear. Then gently snap off the hinge assembly covers at the top of the unit and disassemble the hinge. Be aware of water lines when you are ready to remove the doors.

    you will need to remove the freezer door first. will need to reach the top of the fridge. there is a cover there that will need to be removed. there might be a screw in the middle of it. if not than it just pops off. will need to remove those screws that hold that bracket on. after this you will be able to remove the freezer door. just open it and lift up the door will come off.

    3.the bracket that the freezer came off of in the middle of the fridge you will need to remove these screws. After you have removed these screws the fridge door will come off. just open the door and lift up.

    if you need to remove the lower bracket at the bottom of the fridge than you will need to remove the plastic cover and take the screws out of the bracket and the bracket will come off.
