Remove the Doors
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before removing doors.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Open both doors to 90°. Remove the base grille by removing
the two screws, then pulling out on the outside corners. See
Graphic 1.
NOTE: The doors must only be opened to 90°. If they are
opened all the way, the base grille will not come off.
3. Remove food, the ice storage bin, and any adjustable door or
utility bins from doors.
4. On dispenser models: Disconnect the water tubing, located
behind the base grille on the freezer door side. The dispenser
tubing runs through the door hinge, and must be
disconnected in order to remove the door.
Style 1: Press the colored outer ring against the face of
fitting and pull the water tubing free. See Graphic 2A.
NOTE: Keep the water tubing connector attached to the
tube that runs underneath the freezer. The door cannot be
removed if the connector is still attached to the tube that
runs through the door hinge.
Style 2: Firmly pull on the clasp to release the tube, then
pull the water tubing free. See Graphic 2B.
NOTE: Keep the clasp attached to the tube that runs
underneath the freezer.
5. Disconnect the wiring, located behind the base grille on the
freezer door side. See Graphic 3.
Remove the wiring clip using a ¹⁄₄" hex-head socket
wrench.
Disconnect the wiring plugs from the electrical housing.
6. Close both doors and keep them closed until you are ready to
lift them free from the cabinet.
7. Use a ³⁄₁₆" hex key to remove the top left hinge screws as
shown. See Graphic 4.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove either screw A.
8. Use an internal star drive or a ³⁄₈" hex-head socket wrench to
remove the bottom left hinge screws. See Graphic 7.
IMPORTANT: This requires two people — one to hold the
freezer door in place and another to remove the hinge screws.
NOTE: A leveler bracket is mounted behind the bottom hinge.
Make sure that the leveler bracket is replaced when
reinstalling the hinge.
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to lift the freezer door.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
9. Remove the freezer door. See Graphic 5. The water tubing (on
dispenser models) and wiring remain attached to the freezer
door, along with the bottom left hinge.
IMPORTANT: Rest the door on its side on a soft, clean
surface, such as a towel, blanket or piece of cardboard. This
will help avoid damaging the door, water tubing and wiring.
10. Use a ³⁄₁₆" hex key to remove the top right hinge screws as
shown. See Graphic 6.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove either screw A.
11. Lift the refrigerator door straight up off bottom hinge.
12. It may not be necessary to remove the bottom right hinge in
order to move the refrigerator through a doorway.
If necessary, use an internal star drive or a ³⁄₈" hex-head
socket wrench to remove the bottom right hinge. See
Graphic 7.
NOTE: A leveler bracket is mounted behind the bottom
hinge. If you remove the hinge, make sure that the leveler
bracket is replaced when reinstalling the hinge.
Replace the Doors and Hinges
1. Replace the bottom right hinge, if removed. Make sure that
the leveler bracket is assembled behind the hinge. Tighten
screws.
NOTE: When the screws are tightened properly, there should
not be any gaps between the refrigerator, leveler bracket and
hinge.

Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to lift the freezer door.

2. Hold the freezer door in place in order to replace the bottom
left hinge. For easiest access, hold the door open 90°. Make
sure that the leveler bracket is assembled behind the hinge.
Tighten screws.
IMPORTANT: This requires two people — one to hold the
freezer door and another to reinstall the hinge screws.
NOTE: When the screws are tightened properly, there should
not be any gaps between the refrigerator, leveler bracket and
hinge.
3. Once the bottom left hinge has been replaced, close the
freezer door and make sure it is properly seated on the hinge.
Assistance may be needed.
NOTE: Provide additional support for the doors while the top
hinges are being replaced. Do not depend on the door magnets to
hold the doors in place while you are working.
