You didn't mention whether this is a combination freezer/refrigerator but I'll assume it is.
If you inspect the areas opposite where the hinges currently are mounted, you should see some small, cosmetic plugs that can be pried out. These are the mounting points for changing the opening direction of the doors.
On most units however, doors would both have to be moved since the center hinge is normally a single piece with hinge pins pointed up as well as down. The hinge mounts should have holes slightly larger than needed so that the closure of the doors can be slightly changed to correct alignment.

Freezer is Frozen shut


Try unplugging the freezer and leave the door open for about 30 to 45 minutes. Don't forget the door is open and plug the freezer back in. Set a timer in the kitchen so you don't forget. Once you can open the drawers look inside the freezer sides to find the controller. Most models have turn dial inside.

I want tochange the door opening direction on my ,cool n cool, fridge freezer ...


It's possible but it will cause more money to budget that modification. Also you need to find someone who will do that. Door opening direction need not to be change unless otherwise there is some hindrance on it's way. It is not recommend to do that, a lot of things must be consider.
I hope you'll enlighten.

How to change a bulb in the Kenmore refrigerator


Most likely, you never notice the light bulb in your freezer or refrigerator until it is not working. Then it is time to replace the bulb. This is especially important with freezers, which are often in areas with poorer lighting, like basements or garages. Fortunately, the task is a simple one.
Instructions

1 Unplug the freezer to prevent an accidental shock when you remove the light bulb.

  • 2 Open the door of the freezer, look at the top inside edge of the freezer, below the door seal and back about 1 to 2 inches from the edge. You will see a small plastic or metal panel that protects the bulb from damage and shields your eyes from the direct light of the bulb when the door is opened. Reach behind the guard and remove the bulb by twisting it to the left.
  • 3 Put your new bulb in by inserting it into the socket and twisting it to the right to screw it in. Be sure you use a freezer bulb--it is built a little tougher and is the correct wattage. You can find them at appliance or hardware stores. Plug the freezer back in to test operation of the bulb.

    I want to change the direction of the opening on my kenmore from right to left. Is this difficult?


    Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
    What I understand from your query is that you want to alter the door opening direction If I'm right... Altering the door such that it opens on the counter side is possible. but in most cases, it ruins the working of the device completely.. actually changing the direction causes many things to go wild from the refrigerator light switch. to the refrigerator doors gasket. Also it requires some new holes to be drilled at the other side... That turns the alteration to more complex and tricky.. In a nut shell, I would not suggest to have such changes to your equipment.

    Have a nice day,

    Switching doors to open the opposite direction


    Look on the other side of the door and see if there's a plug covering a hole even with where the door handle attaches on the opposite side. If so, I think you just unscrew the handle from the top of the fridge door or bottom of the freezer door an unhook the other end and reattach on the other side of the door. And unscrew and move the hinge to the opposite side. If your doors can be reversed the holes should arleady be in place. It didn't look overly difficult when the delivery guy changed mine when the fridge was delivered.
