How do I replace my freezer light

Can the door swing be changed?
Yes the door can be changed to open from the opposite side, there are removal plugs that need to be removed from the opposite side and just change all the hardware from one side to the other, change the middle hinge first and put on the bottom door first, after its is mounted you can put the bottom part of the top door on the hinge and last the top hinge, and just make a few minor adjustments.
