You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

The upper and lower trims have to come off for access to the handle screws. Some just slide up or down and some have screws on the top and bottom of the door. Carefully pry them 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.

When dryer finishes it just keeps on beeping


Instructions

1

Open the door to the dryer and remove the screws in the hinge. Lay a towel on top of the dryer. Place the dryer door on the towel with the inside facing up.
2

Remove the screws from the inside of the dryer door. Disassemble the dryer door carefully, removing the cover on the right side of the innermost section of the door and the shield and hinge from the left side of the innermost section. Reattach the side cover to the left side of the innermost part of the door. Install the new shield to the right side of the door section, with the flat side against the door and the notches facing up (they will face into the dryer). Attach the hinge on the same side as the shield.

3

Set the top section aside. Rotate the remainder of the door 180 degrees so that the handle is on the left of the upside down door. Check that the latch aligns with the cover before screwing the door back together. Screw the hinge into the corresponding holes on the left side of the dryer door frame. Remove any stickers that might be blocking the holes.
4

Check the alignment of the door by opening and closing it several times. Loosen the screws on the hinge and nudge the door slightly until the fit is correct. Tighten the screws into place.

Change doors from left to right


Depending on the brand, this "may" be possible. Look for a mounting bracket area on the side you want to change to. Is so, have someone help you, two person job!

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.

The handle of my side by side Kitchen Aid refrigerator is loose. The model number is KSCS25INSS00. It has circular open holes on the handle, no screws? How do I tighten it?


Use an allen wrench (hex) to remove loosen the set screws in the two handle holes. Once removed, tighten the mounting lug. Replace the handle and tighten the hex set screws.

How do you change the dryer door from a left to right opening to a right to left opening. Thid is a series 90 kenmore


Open the dryer door. There should be approximately three screws that hold the hinges on there on the right side (as you said yours currently is a left to right opening). Remove the screws that hold the door on. As you hold the dryer door removed from the dryer, turn it counter clockwise so that the handle is now on the opposite side. Lay it on the floor. Now, remove the screw hole covers from the opposite side of the dryer opening ( the left side) (these can be removed with a fingernail or a thin flat tipped screw driver to pry them out). This will expose the screw holes on the opposite (left)side of the dryer. Take the removed covers and place them in the original screw holes on the right side. Now simply reinstall the door hinges in the newly exposed screw holes on the left side. This will only work if your dryer is designed to have both types of openings. Good Luck!

2. Remove the hinge for the top door held on by 2 bolts
3. Take the top door off
4. Remove the central hinge between the doors held on by 2 screws
4. Lift the bottom door off
5. Pull off the bottm plastic cover
6. Move the post in the bottom hinge to the other side. It screws out

8 Replace the central hinge on the other side (Take off any plastic caps covering the holes)
9. Unscrew the post on the top hinge (there are 2 possible holes left and right) and put it in the other hole.
10. Put the top door on
11. Bolt the top hinge back on the other side

How to move the door to be opened from the other side?


To change the door opening side, you will have to do the following.
Move the hinges to opposite side. There should be a plugs in the holes for the new locations. Carefully remove them without damaging them. They will be re-used in the opposite side.
Remove the door and hinges. Install the hinges and door on the opposide. Insert the plugs in the
holes left from removing the hinges.

Carefully remove the plugs for the new location for the door handle.(You will reuse them)
Carefully remove the trim at the top and bottom of the handle. Now remove the screws and move the handle to the opposite side and install. Install trim top and bottom. Put the handle plugs in the holes left from the handle removal.
