Replacing hinges on NEFF built in fridge

The top hinge of my NEFF built in fridge has broken. I've got new hinges, but can't see how to remove the hinges without taking the fridge out - i.e big job. Can anybody advise please ? Also the hinge kit I've got only has two hinges, the appliance has three. Do I need to replace all hinges ?

    The hinges have dropped on my NEF under worktop fridge, K4316X0GB/43 but I can't get replacements that look like the existing ones. Even if I did how do I fit them please? The door has been covered by a kitchen unit door to match the rest and I can't see how it comes off?

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 fit the door on the other side


If you look at the opposite side of your refrigerator, you'll find one or more plastic covers which can be removed to expose mounting holes. You have to remove the doors from the current mounting position, remove the hinges and transfer them to the other side, install the doors and you're done

How do I change the door from one side to the other on my Zanussi ZNB 38 NDX?


The door comes off a set of hinges. You may have to remove the front fascia at the top, and access the screws holding the top hinge on to the frame. Unscrew these and remove the door by lifting off the bottom hinge. With the door off you will be able to remove the screws holding the bottom hinge. If you are lucky, they will reverse fit to the other side as they are. If not, use what was the top hinge as the new bottom hinge, fit the door and use the bottom hinge as the new top hinge.

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).
  9. Now pull up on the freezer door.
  10. Now remove the screws on the middle hinge.
  11. Now pull up and remove the middle hinge while holding the frig door steady (save the spacer).
  12. Now pull up on the frig door and set to the side.
  13. Now remove the screws on the bottom hinge (save the spacer).
  14. Now put the screw hole covers you removed from the other side in the screw hole exposed from the screws you just removed.
  • The switch
  1. Start with the bottom hinge and place it on the opposite side (don't forget the spacer).
  2. Place the frig door on the bottom hinge and the place the middle hinge in the hole at the top of the frig door.
  3. Fasten the middle hinge.
  4. Place freezer door on the middle hinge.
  5. Put the freezer door in it's natural position to make putting the top hinge on possible.
  6. Screw the top hinge in.
  7. Job complete.
Regards, Tony

How to remove doors of a whirlpool 6vmw47 top mount fridge/freezer


Hello Hicherringto,

I understand that you would like instructions on how to remove the doors on your fridge. Most common on top mount freezers/fridges you need to start at the top and work your way down.

1. Locate the freezer hinge top part where the door swings.
2. Remove the plastic cover over the henge. (top of the box if covered)
3. Remove the screws holding the henge in place.
4. Lift up on the henge
5. Open the freezer door and lift up (the door should lift off the bottom pin)
6. Open the Fridge door and remove the screws from the hinge that the freezer door sat on
7. Remove the hinge from the fridge door by lifting up
8. Open and lift up on the fridge door
9.Reinstall in reverse

That is the easiest way to remove the doors on a top mount freezer fridge. Note that when you reinstall the doors you will have to adjust the hinges so that the seals seal properly. The hinges have enough of a grove that you use them to adjust the doors.

Bottom hinge on fridge door broken


Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.
