7.
Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
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.
Remove food, the ice storage bin, and any adjustable door or
utility bins from doors.
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. See Graphic 2.
Press the colored outer ring against the face of fitting and
pull the water tubing free.
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.
Disconnect the wiring, located behind the base grille on the
freezer door side. See Graphic 3.
Remove the P-clamp using a 1/4"hex-head socket wrench.
Remove the small wiring bundle from the P-clamp.
Remove the wiring clip using a 1/4"hex-head socket
wrench.
Pull the electrical housing out from under the refrigerator.
Disconnect the wiring plugs from the housing.
Gently pull the large wiring bundle (with two white plugs)
through the routing plate.
Close both doors and keep them closed until you are ready to
lift them free from the cabinet.
Use a ¾e" hex key to remove the top left hinge screws as
shown. See Graphic 4.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove either screw A.
Excessive
Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to lift the freezer door.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
8. Lift freezer door straight up off bottom hinge. See Graphic 5.
The water tubing and wiring remain attached to the freezer
door and pull through the bottom left hinge.
g.
NOTE: This may require two people - one to lift the door and
another to feed the water tubing and wiring through the hinge.
Be sure the hole in the hinge is clear of obstructions,
then
gently pull one water tube through the hinge. (Avoid kinking
the tube.) Next, gently pull the other water tube through the
hinge, again avoiding kinks. Finally, gently pull the wiring
bundle (including the grommet and wiring plugs) through the
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.
Use a ¾e" hex key to remove the top right hinge screws as
shown. See Graphic 6.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove either screw A.
10. Lift the refrigerator door straight up off bottom hinge.
11. It may not be necessary to remove the bottom hinges to move
the refrigerator through a doorway. Both bottom hinges have
similar construction.
If necessary, use an internal star drive or a 3/8"hex-head
socket wrench to remove the bottom hinges. See
Graphic 7.
IMPORTANT: The leveler brackets are mounted behind
the hinges. If you remove the hinges, make sure that the
leveler brackets are replaced when reinstalling the hinges.
Replace the Doors and Hinges
1. Replace both bottom hinges, if removed. Make sure that the
leveler brackets are assembled behind the hinges. Tighten
screws.
IMPORTANT: When the screws are tightened properly, there
should not be any gaps between the refrigerator, leveler
bracket and hinge.
NOTE: There are two wiring bundles that run underneath the
freezer - a large bundle with a large grommet and two white plugs
at the end, and a small bundle with a small grommet and one
yellow plug at the end.
Excessive
Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to lift the freezer door.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
2.
Before replacing the freezer door on the bottom left hinge,
feed the small wiring bundle through the hinge. Assistance
may be needed.
IMPORTANT: Do not feed the large wiring bundle through the
hinge. This bundle is intended to run directly from the door to
the connections beneath the freezer. Forcing the large bundle
through the hinge may damage the door and/or the wiring,
and will keep the door from closing properly.
3. Feed both water tubes through the bottom left hinge, then
replace the freezer door 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.
4. Align and replace the top left hinge as shown. See Graphic 4.
Tighten screws.
