My fridge (freezer above) is left-opening and I'd like to switch it to open from the right. The frame and door are drilled for this, but I'm not sure whether all the hardware can be switched or whether new, left-side brackets will be needed. Are fridges of this type designed to permit a change without acquiring new hardware?

when you open the doors, there will be one screw facing upwards in the frame above the freezer side, and 2 more in the frame above the fridge side. Then get on a ladder and tip the top of the grill outward till you see a spring on the left, and a spring on the right. pull those off, and lift the grill up and then remove it. if there are screw holes in the frame but no screws, no big deal. Then it's just the springs. the screws are not critical if they are missing. good luck!
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.
put some heavy stuff on the door like soda or water bottles,also wash around the frame where the door gasket touches the fridge and wash the gasket too, there are magnets inside the gasket and if there's anything on the frame it could stop the gasket from making a good seal,how old is the fridge?what shape is the gasket in?if it's torn or lost it's shape it should be replaced.most likely you might just have to get some weight on the door to stop it from popping open
first remove the door from the fridge, remove the hardware connected to the fridge, on the opposite side should be rubber or plastic caps covering some bolt holes. remove caps and install top of hinge transfer everything you see on the left to the right
Hi, The parts are interchangeable (hinges & handles) You should have some small plastic plugs/caps that are covering the holes already drilled for the change. Once you remove the doors and then remove the plugs, just reinsert the plugs into the old holes and switch hinges and door handles to the opposite spots. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
There is a lever switch usually above the door (when door is in open position) on the fridge cabinet. Not on the actual door. The beeping should stop if this lever is pressed. If the door is positioned correctly it would depress this lever when closed. It may be that the door adjustment is slightly out. If the beeping does not stop when depressed, then your printed circuit board (located usually above the door) is faulty and needs to be replaced.
make sure the evaporator fan is working, open door and push switch in if fan works make sure opening from freezer to fridge is not blocked. if door was removed make sure light in fridge is shuting off if temp in fridge is in the 50 degree range your light switch is not being deactivated check spacers between door and hinge . sometimes when door is removed a spacer will fall on floor and light switch is not hitting door
