How to Reverse Mini Fridge Door

Mini fridges are preferred by most people because they can be stored in small spaces. If you don't have enough space, it is impossible to adjust.

People often have trouble opening their mini-fridges because they are facing the wrong way. It is impossible to change the direction of your mini-fridge as it will obstruct space.

Reversing the mini-fridges door is your only option. Reversing the door will help you save space and make it ergonomically simple to use.

We can help if you have the same problem. You don't need to hire a technician to fix the door. It is possible to do it yourself. You can reverse your mini-fridge door by following our step-by-step guide.

Mini Fridge Door Placement Problem:

This is the biggest problem people have with mini-fridges. The fridge door may not open correctly if you remodel or move your home.

If your fridge opens in the right-hand direction, make sure it is in a place where there is enough space on the front and left sides.

The fridge door will not open in the right direction if there isn't enough space. To open the fridge, you will need to move in the opposite direction.

Even if the fridge is opened successfully, it will be impossible to reach the corner to grab something. You can't continue living like this. It is time to change.

You have only two choices. You have two options: either reverse the door or change the location of the mini-fridge.

  • Change Placement: This method is the first you can use. This is a very simple method. Simply move the fridge. This method won't work if your apartment is too small or you live in a dorm. You won't be able to move the fridge if you don't have the space.
  • You can also reverse the door. This involves reversing the door. You need to flip the door so that it opens on the left. This will save you time and effort. It is common for people to assume that it is difficult and call a mechanic to help them. You can still do it yourself. You will need a guideline and some tools.

These are the steps to reverse a mini-fridge door. Make sure the door is reversible. You cannot repair a door that is not reversible. Most mini-fridge doors can be reversible.

Step 1: Unplug your Mini Fridge

First, unplug your fridge. Then, turn off the power supply and disconnect the plug. This is a precautionary step you should take.

Step 2: Remove the Fridge

You must then remove the plug from the fridge. This will allow you to keep the contents safe. You should not start working immediately as the contents might spill or fall, creating a mess. You can either store the contents in another refrigerator or keep them safe.

Step 3: Place Towels Underneath

Frost can start melting if it is in your fridge. To avoid making a mess, place towels and rags under the fridge.

Step 4: Tape the door shut

To ensure that the mini-fridge door doesn't collapse when you open it, you need to make sure that the hinges are not broken. Tape the door to ensure it doesn't move. This will prevent any damage.

Step 5: Remove Hinge Cover

To expose the screw, remove the hinge cover. You will find the hinge cover on top and underneath the fridge. Use a screwdriver to remove it.

Step 6: Unlock the Screw

After you have located the screws, use a screwdriver to pry it open. Each screw must be removed one at a time. While you are removing the screws, make sure to hold the door in place.

Step7: Remove Hinge

You can remove the hinge by removing all screws. First, remove the upper hinge.

Step 8: Disconnect the plugs

You will now need to take out all the plugs from the refrigerator's top. It is important to keep the fridge with all the screws intact.

Step 9: Turn the Fridge

After you have completed the upper side, turn the fridge so that the lower hinge can be removed.

Step 10: Lower Hinge Removal

You will need to do the same thing for the lower hinge. The lower hinge can be removed by loosening the screws.

Step 11: Hinge Pin Removal

You will need to take out the hinge pin after removing the lower hinge. You will need to turn the door clockwise to do this. The pin will be undone.

Step 12: Align, Bracket, and Open the Door

You will now need to fix the door on either the opposite or reverse side. You will need to tighten the pin and reinsert it on the opposite side. The bracket must be aligned. After that, it's time to attach the screws. Align the door. Once the door is aligned, push the pin down to lock it.

Step 13: Verify alignment

After it's done, check the alignment between the fridge and door. You can fix the door with screws if it is in perfect alignment. To fix it permanently, tighten the screws.

To hide the screws after tightening them, place the hinge cap back into the hole.

These are the steps to reverse your mini-fridge door. You don't need to hire a technician or pay money to do this yourself. This will solve the problem of the mini-fridge being opened in the wrong direction.
