Door Reversal

In some installations, reversing the door swing allows

for more convenient access to stored items. Both

doors can be reversed on freezer door models and the

fresh food door is reversible on freezer drawer models.

1. Remove door(s) (see page 4).

2. Transfer cabinet plugs and cabinet

screws to opposite side of cabinet.

• Remove cabinet plugs with flat

blade of screwdriver tip wrapped

in masking tape.

• Remove center mullion screws

with 5⁄16” hex head screwdriver

3. Transfer door stops from bottom edge of fresh food

door and freezer door, if applicable, to opposite

side of door edge.

• Use a Phillips screwdriver

for removal and installation.

4. Install handles (see below

and page 7).

5. Reinstall the door(s).


Remove and discard handle packaging and tape.

Handle design varies from refrigerator to refrigerator.

Please reference the appropriate instructions for your

model below.
