    It could depending on the model number. Do you have similar holes on the oppisite upper cabinet? Some units that are high end stainless are made to only swing one way. I will await your reply for the model number of the unit before posting a further solution.Thank you,Rick

    Yes Rick there are similar holes in the opposite ends/sides of the cabinet......the model is FCRS201LFB5......thanks for your help.

    Similar holes means yes the door can be switched. You can actually type your model number into this site click here http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdir... and type your model number into the bar to get a complete schematic of your unit if you have any further questions message me back

SOURCE: doors don't swing shut automatically

The GE side by side refrigerator has 2 cams on the bottom hinge that helps shut the door. If the cam wears out then the door will not close properly. One of the cams is riveted to the hinge assembly and an extra cam is shipped with it. The cam assemblies can easily be replaced by using the information on the Partselect.com website that refers to the GE TFX22R refrigerator.

SOURCE: Want to reverse door swing on Kenmore refrigerator model # 795

Actually, I have a Kenmore 795 model with the top door and bottom drawer freezer. I just tried this, based on "guru's" advice. Unfortuately, though the TOP hinge on this model is reversible, the bottom hinge is NOT. I got it all apart before I discovered this problem. Also you might want to note that the 7/16th wrench is too big for my bolts and the 3/8ths is too small. I had to use an adjustable wrench...maybe they are metric.
An allen wrench will get the handles off for you. You will find little ports for it if you look carefully.

Is there a way to adjust the refrigerator door so it will stop at a 45 degree angle rather than swinging on back?


check the level of the fridge. If you adj.till it is level the door will stay wherever you stop it. Usually they are adjusted till the door falls shut if started so the door is not left open

There should be a way to level the feet of your fridge so the door swings closed by itself. Check the user manual that came with your fridge for advice on how to do this on your fridge, as each make and model of fridge differs. This technique to level a fridge on the floor is generally necessary because the floor where the fridge is placed is unlevel, and it does not imply any fault with the fridge itself.

Doors not closing all the way


check level from back to front on fridge if good than check the amount of food that is stored on the door if u have a lot of bulk, weighty stuff they may be acting as a counter balance on the door when u close the left side the air that is trapped usually disperses into the unit and is not forceful enough to push open the door but if their is a lot of additional weight on door it makes the door easier to open and swing on hinge

Side by side jenn aire refrigertor. After six months of use, the right door blows open when closing the left door. I have re leveled to no avail. Any suggestions on the problems


That's not uncommon, but the door should swing back shut. The fridge should be level side to side, but tipped back just a little. This will help the doors close. Also some fridges have door closers on the door hinges. They are usually plastic or nylon and can wear flat. If your fridge has these, the doors will lift just a little (maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch) when it's opened. Usually the fresh food door is bigger and heavier and will wear out closers faster than the freezer door.
