Do they make refrigerator "Door Stops?"
Posted 27 February 2011 - 08:09 AM
I just had a new Samsung RF266 French door refrigerator delivered. If the right side door is opened past about 160 degrees, it will smash into my pantry door knob (lever) shaft, which will create a nice big dent in the stainless. While I wont do it, I can only imagine the kids accidentally doing it. Is there any kind of contraption that can limit the range of the door?

Not sure if your fridge has adjustable door positions. Someone with more intimate knowledge or manual may have that information. Have you called Samsung?
Okay...let's think outside of the (ice) box for a moment. Can you change the swing on the pantry door or use a lower profile door knob?

I posted a question on Samsungs support site. We will see what they say. It appears that the refrigerator door swing is limited by its bottom mounting bracket. I dont see any adjustments. The only thing I could think of is a bracket that extends about another 1/2+ inch, which I believe would solve the problem.
Thinking outside of the box: Reversing the door swing will kill the Feng Shui of the kitchen, and a true Samurai would never have that

The dimensions will work, and depending on the quality and brushed nickel finish, will most likely be an acceptable solution.... Assuming there is nothing that can be done from the fridge side of the equation
