Stuck Middle Hinge Pin of Kenmore Top Freezer Fridge door

Kenmore Top Freezer Refrigerator - Middle Hinge Pin Bracket. The hinge pin is stuck and nothing I do can unscrew it from the bracket. I need to flip it so that I can change the side the doors open on.

I got a replacement part from Sears direct but have the same issue.

Why is the pin in so tightly?

What can I do to change the orientation of the door? Has something changed with this bracket and the Use & Care guide hasn't been updated? Page 12 states that using a quarter inch socket wrench you should loosen and remove this pin. When I tried with the first one the bevelled edge got stripped. I took it to OSH they put it in a vice and also could not loosen the pin.

Any ideas, suggestions?
