Question about Kenmore 64702 Top Freezer Refrigerator

Can the doors of both the refrigerator and freezer be reversed to open from the other side?

I need to reverse the doors on my refrigerator so that the space it will be situated in can open properly. The doors now open from the left side and swing out to the right side. I need the doors to open from the right side and swing out to the left side. Can this be achieved?

    We have a kenmore elite with through-the-door water. The wiring and water lines are oriented on the right hinge, but we need (almost desperately) for the door to open to the right.

How do you reverse the door

If its a side by side like the one showing on your post, I doubt you can unless there is a spot showing for under the door, and the water and electrical lines are long enough to switch.

Can the door opening be reversed

Most refrigerators and freezers have the option of door reversal......look on the opposite side of the door and there should be screw holes under plastic plugs....which will enable you to swap the hinge to the other side.Here are a few pics for reference.

I mant to reverse the opening swing of my refrigerator doors

You have to remove the doors, swap the hinges to the other side. Start by taking the top hinge off the freezer door (pop the plastic cover off the hinge to reveal the screws). If it has handles (some don't) you will need to swap them over as well. The screws are under plastic covers on the ends. There will be plastic plugs in the holes that will need to be removed and placed into the holes you took the screws out of. This is assuming your model has reversible doors. Most do, but some don't.

Need to turn doors around , doors are opening to left side..need to open to right side

Good day,
Start from the top and work down.

Make sure all items are removed from both doors, and machine should be shut off.

1. Remove top bracket with the freezer door still shut.
With both hands, open freezer door about 1 foot, and lift off.
All thru this process keep track of all shims and washers and their location.
2. Remove center bracket holding main door and remove using the same process as with the freezer door.
3. Remove bracket from the bottom and reverse to the other side.
There will be a lot of press in buttons to be removed by prying them out with a small screw driver.
4. Reinstall in reverse order, making sure all shims and washers go back where they came from. As well, Tighten screws while making sure the door is in alignment at the same time.
5. Remove both door handles and reinstall. Some screws may be hidden by a cover that will have to be pried away first.

How do I change the way my door opens?

Hi. I can help you. Look carefully at the hinge side of the door and you will see the screw pattern. Now look in the exact same areas on the non hinge side of both the door and the frame and you should see little plactic buttons which pry up and expose screw holes.

As long as you have these buttons/holes you can reverse the swing. If you do not have the predrilled holes on the other side, you can not reverse it. Most can be reversed so I am hoping yours is one of them. Good luck.

We have a fridge/freezer, upright bought some 15 years ago. Works fine, but we wish to reverse the doors to right opening from left. Please advise how to do it.

if you can notice that the doors have plastic plugs to the other side of the hinge then it is design to be reversible.

but if there is no indication that you can transfer the hinge to the other side of the door, then it is not designed to be reversible and there is nothing you can do about it.

i'm not sure if the old fridge are designed to be reversible.

tnx 4 using fixya,
