Samsung door removal

7 posts in this topic

I have a strange service call to make.  Request to remove Samsung doors from a French refrigerator so the can get into their house.    Tips on how to remove all 3 doors?    No I don't have a model number but how hard can it be.

First tip.... get the model number and manual! Some samsungs require quite a few screws to be removed. Some require hinge trim to be pried off to access screws to remove a cover that spans across the top of the fridge so you can disconnect a john guest fiting as well as electrical connections. Those hinge trim pieces are very fragile

Removing handles & house door would not leave enough clearance,  all 4 refer doors must come off.

None.

Same way I put it in.   Went to house, spent 90 minutes total on site.  Samsung was in garage loaded full & running.  After careful inspection started at top.   Lots of dismantling to get doors & drawer doors off.   Was not difficult at all.  taking food out was most time.   Putting back together was a piece of cake.   Paid $105 cash, customer's wife happy.   My wife happy (good paycheck).   :wink:
