Reversible Door?

Product Overview:
Weight, Shipping:205
Reversible Door:Yes
Voltage (V):115
Ice Dispenser:No
Automatic Defrost:Yes
Fast Freeze:No
Door Hinge:Right

Did a live chat with a Sears person and he didn't know diddly. Only thing I can think of is it 'ships' with the hinge on the right but can be moved to the left, would that be correct? If not I'd be up a creek. If you zoom in on the one picture it looks like there are holes on the left for the middle hinge, not sure though.

Thanks

The doors are reversible and the instructions are in the owner's manual, not the installation manual. Starts on page 10.

The unit will be shipped for right hand and you will switch to left.

The handles are easy, just remove buttons covering left hand holes and reuse them to cover right hand holes left empty.

For the doors:
Work from top to bottom when removing. Work from bottom to top when reinstalling. The middle hinge is hardest. Be sure to pay attention to any nylon washers. The middle hinge and washers will be flipped over when moving to the left.

Basically, take everything from the right, flip over, and attach to left.

I have done this many times and don't need the instructions, but I looked at them for your fridge and they're pretty clear, better than most.

Doh...never thought to look at the manual, I'll have to remember that.

Thanks very much.

Just did this yesterday. Mine had a spacer on the bottom of bottom door which I didn't see at first and had to take everything off again. I believe the purpose is so that the relatively heavy weight of the fridge rests and turns on a hard surface instead of the soft paneling. Freezer door didn't have this type of spacer.

Only took about 30 mins and I really took my time. Having a drill with bits would have really sped it up, but I used a ratchet and screwdriver.
