Are Samsung refrigerator doors reversible?

Last Update date : 2015.09.22



All pre-2005 bottom mount refrigerators are designed with the hinge on the right side and the door handle on the left. Because of way electrical wiring passes through the doors, the doors on bottom mount refrigerators manufactured in 2004 or earlier are not reversible.


Currently the only bottom-mount models that feature reversible doors have model numbers that begin with RL36 and RL38.  The procedure for removing, reversing, and reattaching the refrigerator and freezer doors is outlined in detail in the owner's manual. Manuals for most Samsung products are available for download in PDF Format via our Support page:


Please note that several additional parts are required:


Middle hinge


Compression Fitting

Compression Nut
