Yes, they can and there will be a wayer line on the freezer door side that will also need to be disconnscted at the bottom.

SOURCE: Door Removal

If you don't have the manual, go to Samsung's website and download the manual. It explains how to remove and adjust the doors and bottom drawer.

Hi I need a service manual for a westinghouse wse7000sf

There isn't one, only the Owner manual. It is a fridge and freezer, and with very little differences, they are all the same.

How do you completely remove the freezer door? There is a waterline running...

Many people often stress over laying a refrigerator or freezer down in the back of a truck in order to move it. It has happened many, many, times that one of these appliances is laid down in order to move it, only to find that the compressor is ruined within a few hours after having plugged the unit back in.

By the same token, it is hard to just dead lift one of these appliances into the back of the truck without tipping the unit on it's side.

The purpose of this trick, or tip, is to avail anyone of what to look for should they need to move one of these unit's.

The reason the compressors fail is lack of oil in the compressor, caused when the compressor is oriented where the oil can go run into the disharge tube which is headed to the condensor coil. Most all modern domestic refrigeration compressors are built as where the enclosure is at the condensing pressure, which is why they get real hot when they run. The high pressure gas is easily pushed into the condensor as the compressor runs. But, if the appliance that the refrigerator is in is tipped over where that tube is on the bottom, then the oil runs in there as well. And when the appliance is stood back up, the piping usually does not allow all the oil to run back into the compressor. If the compressor is started before the oil has a chance to run back, then it get's pushed by the hot refrigerant further into the condensor coil, and on to the evaporator where it becomes cold and thick, to the point that it doesn't want to return to the compressor. This makes the compressor run on low oil, and after doing this for a few hours, it seizes up.

So, in order to lay the unit down, all you need to do is look at the compressor tubing. THere will be three pipes or tubes coming out of the compressor. On eis short, and crimped, then soldered closed. That is the service tubing where the unit is charged at the factory. One is the suction tubing that is the tube returning from inside the refrigerator. And the last is the hot gas discharge tubing, going to the condensor coil. In most all deomestic refrigerators, the suction and discharge tubes come off the same side of the compressor, which is the right hand side of the compressor as you stand at the back of the refrigerator looking at the compressor. That means if you lay the appliance on the left hand side, when standing in the same position, that oil will not have any place to run to, and will stay inside the compressor. You can lay or tilt the appliance on that side all you want, aadn never have any issues when starting the unit up after moving. And you can start tyhe unit up immediatley. You don't have to wait for 8 hours or anything.

Now, if you find you did an oops and laid the applicance the wrong way, then be concerned, there is a way to save the unit. Stand the unit up and wait for 6 hours or so before pluggin the unit in. Plug it in, and allow to run for 2-3 minutes. Unplug, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Repeat this for 8-10 times, then allow it to run for 30 minutes or so. DO this a couple of times, and you should be good to go.

Our Westinghouse virtuosa freezer alarm keeps going off. the door is definitely closed. however we did move house yesterday

When you move a fridge or freezer you need to let them stand for a couple of hours prior to turning back on again especially if you put on its side or turn it upside down.
This helps the gas in the pipes settle down I would suggest you turn it of for a couple of hours then turn it on again see if that helps.

Westinghouse two door fride freezer. The two blue lights are whis is between the first and second shelf is never happened before. They were both on but every time you open the door its stopped but when...

Frankly not sure unless something else going on. Some ice makers have a cut off light that when you open it lights up so ice won't kick out at your door while door open. Could also be a feature : https://www.masters.com.au/product/100399477/westinghouse-side-by-side-fridge-700l-wse7000sf
Motor kick on could be the compressor kicking on because the door is open and all that cold air is coming out and it is now turning on to cool again.

Yes depending on age. once changed doors never seal properly. because cabinet warps and seals flatten on one side. suggest to sell and buy another. you will never be happy if converted.

Maytag fridge

Without knowing the type of fridge(side by side, freezer on top etc.) all I can offer is this: Somewhere between the freezer and the fridge there's an opening thermostatically controlled to transfer cold air from freezer to the fridge. Most have a fan to move the air. So either the fan (if so equipped) stopped, and need to replace, or opening is stuck closed, or plugged.
If freezer is working fine, this is the only problem I can think of.
Hope this helps
